The easiest and fastest way to
build a successful business is to do quality work and provide
The Decorative Curbmaking Machine will help you install the
best curb product on the market. Installing the best product
is the kind of service your customers want.
I was purchasing some wood at the building supply center the
other day and made a comment about not being a very good
carpenter. The gentleman helping me commented, "The difference
between a good carpenter and a bad carpenter is the type of
tools they use."
Boy how true that is.
I got to thinking about my curbing business and I realized
that I was lucky to own a Decorative Curbmaking Machine. My
only competitors in the area are using a different concrete
curbing machine and they simply can not produce the same
quality of product.
Here are just a few things I
can do that they can't.
- I can install curbing with a high PSI. I have a
hydraulically powered auger that can put down 10 to 15 feet of
6000 PSI concrete curbing per minute, depending on the mold
- I can set up and install up to 1000 ft a day, providing same
day service on almost every job.
- My competitor has to mix material very dry making
installation and finishing more difficult as well as causing
extruded material to break and weather poorly from lack of
good compaction. Curbing produced by their concrete curbing
machine starts deteriorating in as little as two to three
- I can produce a "True Concrete Curb," because my machine
allows me to use aggregates of up to 3/4 inch. While the
wetter mix allows the concrete to cure better and less
cracking occurs on hot summer days. I can also do profitable
exposed aggregate jobs, difficult to do if your concrete
curbing machine can not run aggregates.
- The wetter mix and the constant movement of the auger in the
Decorative Curbmaking Machine® means less work is needed in
the finishing phase and gives the curbing a smoother look.
What an advantage the right equipment has given my business.
My customers are happy, they send referrals, and my business
is growing quickly. My competitor will never produce as good
of product unless they change machines.
