The MBW Paver slip forms curb, curb & gutter and similar profiles with a level of quality that rivals larger pavers. In commercial parking lots and other applications with tight radii, the MBW Paver out-performs larger machines. Cost savings associated with the use of the MBW Paver are significant and ongoing. Purchase cost is a fraction of large pavers. Transport is accomplished with a pick-up truck and trailer. Crew size can be held to 3-5 people. Maintenance is low.
The MBW Paver bridges the gap between hand forming curbs and slip forming with large machines. Three models are available. The two-wheel-drive C101 pours to a 12″ width, 18″ height. The two-wheel-drive C101-18 pours to an 18″ width, 18″ height. The three-wheel drive CG200 slip forms profiles within a 48″ wide by 18″ high parameter. Hopper sizes are available in 24″, 30″, 36″ and 48″. Given a reasonable level of variable control, the MBW Paver pours a 3′ radius with ease.
While production rates vary and are dependent on the mix, grade, and crew proficiency, 1000 to 1500 feet of curb and gutter would represent a typical day’s pour. In the tack-on curb over pavement application, the MBW Paver has the potential to slipform up to 5000 thousand feet/day.
