What slump should I use with the Curb Roller?
The slump varies from job to job depending on the mix design used. We recommend using a 3 to 3-1/2 inch slump.
We are located outside of the Australia. Can we still buy your machines?
Of course! We have many happy customers of the Australia.
What is this aluminum block on the hydraulic hoses and is the machine variable speed?
The Curb Roller and Hydra-Screed ship standard with this in-line flow control block. This block allows our equipment to function properly with nearly all hydraulic power sources. This block regulates hydraulic oil flow and PSI to the machine protecting it from overload or shock from sudden directional change or stop. Tampering with or removing this block voids warranty.
How heavy is the Curb Roller?
The Curb Roller weighs approximately 160lbs with a standard drum attached. Some custom drums and machines will weigh more. Two individuals can easily lift the machine.
What is the drum or screed made of?
The drum is fabricated using metal spinnings welded to various sizes of heavy wall pipe. Some custom profiles with slopes and odd shapes are rolled out of a lighter metal to achieve desired profile.
What is the power source for the Curb Roller and Hydra-Screed?
The Curb Roller and Hydra-Screed are powered hydraulically and will run off nearly any hydraulic power source. We actually manufacture a hydraulic power unit called the Hydra-Pack that is specifically designed for use with the Curb Roller and Hydra-Screed.
Can the Curb Roller be pulled in only one direction?
The Curb Roller is designed to easily adapt to an either direction pull. Simply flip the machine over, change directional valve position, change the drum sweep to top side of drum, and done!
How many feet of hydraulic hose comes with the machine and can I add more if I want?
The Curb Roller comes standard with 25′ foot of hose while the Hydra-Screed comes with 40′ of hose. Additional hose extensions can be purchased, but we recommend not exceeding 100′ of hose per machine.
What if I need several drums or a job specific profile?
The Rollcon has the ability to easily change drums, which makes it ideal for any curb and gutter job. We currently have 29 standard drums available., and we can also make custom profiles perfect for almost any job.
What kind of forming is required for effective and efficient use?
Rollcon will work on wood, metal, plastic, and masonite forming as well as run off existing concrete. Keeping your form stakes and bracing below the top of the form will allow for smooth operation.
Is the Curb Roller hard to operate?
the Curb Roller, like any other machine, takes a very basic understanding of hydraulics and concrete. Because of its simple design, most operators become proficient with it on the first or second use. The Curb Roller comes with a waist belt designed so the operator can use proper positioning and body weight transfer to pull the machine.
Does Curb Roller warranty their equipment?
At Rollcon Mfg, we proudly offer a 3 year warranty on our machines. (Just make sure you don’t go beating them with a hammer or throwing them off a cliff as this will void the warranty!)
