Power Curbers’ next generation of 5700 series

The next generation of the 5700 series from Power Curbers, the 5700-D, replaces the 5700-C model as the ‘one machine solution’ for concrete slipform applications.

The new 5700-D excels in curbing, sidewalk, barrier, ditches, paving, tunnel, agricultural and specialised applications. It features a compact size, simple design, easy operation, high productivity and versatility.

The new Power Curber SlipSmart control solution makes the 5700-D highly responsive. The system’s simplicity and accuracy provide contractors with a new level of precision. The SlipSmart controls come ready to interface with Topcon, Leica, and Trimble 3-D/Stringless systems.

Other new features that enhance the versatility of the 5700-D include: ‘All up’ jog switch that raises or lowers all crawler posts simultaneously; improved cross-slope control; auto-calibration for the radius steer sensor; fine scaling of speed controls; engine display replacing individual gauges; easy-pivot conveyor; wires that are etched with descriptive label text matching machine schematics; cold air dam between engine and console to keep the console and operator cooler; improved wand-activated high-pressure water system; redesigned door latches, including a single, lower latch to access the engine compartment; as well as toolbox end doors and shovel holders at conveyor.

The 5700-D is also equipped with a new vibrator master scaling knob, which allows the operator to increase or decrease vibration across all vibrators while individual vibrator adjustments remain relative to each other. Furthermore, there are improvements and additions to optional equipment such as a new canopy, improved low-pressure water system, and improved barrier lift kit with the reach doubled up to 1,220 mm.
