Power Curbers’ 5700-B receives 50 percent more power

Power Curbers has re-engineered its 5700-B slipform paver, creating the 5700-Super-B, which offers a 50-percent horsepower increase. The 133-horsepower engine increases the machine’s trimming and pouring capacities in high production curb-and-gutter applications. In addition, the operator’s platform and console have been raised to increase the visibility of the auger and chute man. The console has been redesigned to demand less motion for the operator. The work area is also cooler, with hydraulic and engine coolant radiators re-located and mounted externally so hot air circulates away from the platform. The machine’s crawlers have a heavier frame and increased torque for easier loading, pouring on inclines and working in soft grade conditions.
