If you have ever had to form and pour curbs before you know they can be an absolute pain. Even the extruded curbs have their limitations and come along with a large piece of machinery. The Curb Roller is a new easy solution to the curb problem. The Curb Roller weights in at just around 160 pounds and is pulled down the form work by one man. It is run through hydraulics that can be attached to a skid steer or other types of machinery and requires 3-5 gallons per minute to operate. The Curb Roller also cuts down on the form work time, by requiring simpler form work.
Although the drum is already made in 7 different standard shapes and sizes, the company that produces the Curb Roller can also make custom drums for custom curbs.
Everyone has a camera in their pocket these days and when something goes down on the jobsite, you can bet it’s going to be captured on video one way or another. That can either be a great thing for marketing or an awful way to showcase your business.
Look, you could mobilize on site the boring old way by loading your heavy equipment on the bed of a trailer and driving it to site, or you could take a note from the Bravo Company of the 37th Engineer Battalion of the United States and spice things up a bit.
“World’s Largest” is definitely a sought after goal, especially in the construction industry. Sarens, a crane rental, heavy lifting, and engineered transport company in Belgium, has recently released a supersized crane that is being regarded as the largest crane in the world, by both size and lifting capacity.
Multiple buildings imploded at the same time with multiple different camera views? Sounds like the making of a great demolition video.
A construction crane that was working on a highway widening project in St. Martin Parish in Louisiana collapsed onto the adjacent roadway last week, injuring one driver.
Demolition by implosion videos are always fun to watch. Adding an element of water makes them even more dramatic, though it’s probably not great for the ecosystem. Late last week, a one mile long, 23 year-old bridge in China was imploded in front of a crowd of spectators and caught on camera.
Cranes are an extremely useful and important piece of equipment on the majority of construction sites. They can also be extremely dangerous if they are not understood or respected.
