Able Tool & Equipment received the 2016 Dealer of the Year Award by Miller Curber Co. LLC. Miller Curber has served the industry for more than 50 years manufacturing curbing machines for both commercial and landscaping use. The machines are made in the United States.
This Ohio-based company has created the Miller MC Series Curbilders, which have offered unequaled performance and versatility for the placement of freestanding curb.
These simple and efficient self-propelled machines operate on the extrusion principle and provide the most economical means available of constructing small to mid-sized continuous curb from either concrete or asphalt, according to the company.
The company also states this process drastically reduces the high labor costs associated with hand formed and poured curb and produces high quality, extremely dense curb at a rate of up to 15 fpm (up to 30 fpm for MC900).
Miller's exclusive interchangeable extrusion auger assemblies give each Curbilder the capacity to extrude more shapes and sizes than any machine in its class, from 3-1/2 in. (8.8 cm) to 18 in. (45.7 cm) high curb. A wide variety of options allow these machines to meet the toughest specification work.
Derek Bauer, owner of Able Tool & Equipment stated, “They are an excellent company to be teamed up with. We share the same focus on customer satisfaction and support. Together, we work to serve the New England market with unprecedented quality and care.”
• every model will extrude concrete or asphalt with four interchangeable extrusion assemblies with auger diameters from 5 in. (12.7 cm) to 10 in. (25.4 cm)

• place curb within 1 in. (2.5 cm) of an obstacle
