After 3 years of development, Curb King Announces it's newest Curb Machine. The Dasher Curb Machine is a breakthrough machine giving the landscape curb contractor greater flexibility and performance than any other plunger type landscape curbing machine on the market.
The Dasher Curb Machine has many patented features. One of the patented features is the cement dasher in the hopper which aids in the feeding and production of a curb. The dasher moves in the hopper assisting the cement to fall into the plunger and then into the curb. The Dasher Curb Machine also utilizes Curb Kings patented elliptical motion to create high-quality curb with less waste.
The machine also has many other revolutionary features such as a clutch, an easily reversible slipform, a straight up side and adjustable legs. The machine has the capacity with a large hopper and slipform to lay a lot of cement efficiently, but it is still small enough and light enough to serve the residential market very effectively.

The Auger Lift Kit allows you to have more control of your augers on the Model 117 Gas Twin Auger Curb Machine. On the the model 117 Curb Machine the augers and auger housing are all mounted with rubber flexures to allow the augers and auger housing to vibrate. Vibration turns cement to a liquid and allows it to flow more easily and fill the slipform to make the curb. Over time the rubber flexures relax and allow the augers to fall. The auger lift kit allows you to pull the the augers up into their original position (the center of the auger housing).
The Lift kit consists of a set of springs that you can tension and adjust the way you want.
Curb King’s standard trowels have always been built with rolled edges. The rolled edges on the trowels made troweling a curb much easier. The rolled edges help the trowel to adjust to the curves found in all landscape curbing. The rolled edge also created a brush finish that is common on outside concrete.
Many landscape contractors desired a trowel that would create a smooth finish. Curb King developed the smooth trowel. The smooth trowel created a smooth finish but was a much harder tool to use. The smooth trowel with its flat surface has a tendency to dig into the side of the curb. It was a tool that required care and experience to use correctly.
Curb King has developed a Hybrid Smooth Over the Top Trowel. The trowel has rolled edges on the vertical surfaces and a straight edge on the horizontal surfaces. The trowel creates a smooth finish on top of the curb where it is visible to the eye. The rolled edges on the side make the trowel easier to use.
All Curb King over the top smooth trowels will be of the Hybrid design. Curb King makes and stocks over 80 different types of trowels. Curb King also makes custom designed trowels for any landscape curbing project. Click here to go to the catalog.
Curb King has made buying a replacement barrel a thing of the past. Curb King has introduced plastic barrel sides that have superior wear characteristics than steel. The replaceable plastic barrel sides in combination with the replaceable barrel bottom, an exclusive of Curb King, has made barrel replacement obsolete.
The extremely dry, abrasive concrete mixes used by all landscape curbers have made barrel replacement an expensive maintenance item. This technological improvement greatly reduces those costs. This advancement can be retrofitted to all Curb King Mixers. This option comes standard with all new Curb King 12 CuFt mixers with the plastic barrel bottom.
