If your next project will require finishing carpark or road surfaces, it’s likely that you’ll need to browse Melbourne kerbing plant hire suppliers. The iSeekplant database has many different options for kerbing plant, whether you’re looking for small machinery for garden edging or plant for large roadworks projects.
Kerb machines revolutionised the industry when they were invented around 30 years ago, and they make it easy to lay long lines of kerbing. While these machines can be connected to a concrete truck, they’re often manually filled, depending on the scale of the project.
The iSeekplant database also has efficient and small kerbing machinery available through our many Sydney kerbing plant hire suppliers, which are self-propelled and manually filled. These are particularly handy for small jobs, since the machine will only move forward if the hopper has enough material - meaning no imperfections or gaps coming through the line.
A kerb machine forms concrete borders, mower strips and edging, and can also be used for projects like golf course edging, carparks, and more.
The concrete mix is fed into the hobber, and the kerbing machine then releases the concrete onto the ground or base. The machine is then positioned at the starting point of the kerb, and the operator will steer it, guiding it on its path and feeding the hopper more concrete as needed.
Kerb machines are also sometimes known as extruder machines, and they use a ramming mechanism to form kerbs on subdivisions, car parks and landscapes.
In the 1990s, manufacturers realised that contractors needed mid and small-sized kerb machines which would weigh less than 5000kg. This gave smaller contractors the opportunity to hire a machine and transport it easily for smaller projects.
Small sized kerb machines can handle large jobs like subdivisions, but have a manoeuvrability that larger kerbers don’t have, making it easier to get into small spaces and construct detailed kerbs. Sales of kerb machines weighing less than 1500kg have taken off around the world recently, as extruded kerbs became popular as landscape borders.
Larger kerb machines can do everything from kerbs in parking lots to barrier walls, and are sometimes equipped with trimmers which help save time.
Kerbing plant hire suppliers in Darwin offer kerb machines with both tracks and tires. Tracks are ideal for working on soil that’s muddy, sandy or has a lot of loose or large rocks, while rubber-tire machines are often less expensive to hire, have superior mobility, and are less likely to damage existing asphalt.
Kerbing plant suppliers in Adelaide and throughout Australia continue to improve their equipment, utilising the latest technology and ensuring that the kerb machines are easy to maintain and operate.
