The Contractor’s Kerb Cleaner came about due to a shortage of labour combined with the introduction of the M3 type of kerb. Because of the continuously curved section this kerb is nearly impossible to clean with the grader and difficult with a shovel. Add to this the the cost of capital equipment standing idle while excess gravel is removed from kerb and channel.
Traditionally this job is done manually using shovels and brooms risking RSI injuries due to the repetitive nature of doing long sections of kerb and channel.
The Contractor’s Kerb Cleaner also makes a great gutter sweeper and can also be used during asphalt patch repairs, park maintenance and cobblestone curb and gutter.
