CM4000 Frequently Asked Questions

We are located outside of the United States and Canada. Can we still buy your machines?​


Of course! We have many happy customers outside of the United States and Canada. We just ask that you contact our international dealer J.D. Honigberg to set up your order. Their contact information can be found here.




How heavy is the Batt Screed?


The Batt Screed weighs about 75 lbs without an aluminum pipe attached.




What pipe should be used with the Batt Screed?


4" SCH40 aluminum pipe. If buying from outside source, Curb Roller Mfg. recommends using this aluminum pipe: 6061-T6 EXTRUDED PORTHOLE PIPE - ASTM B429 - 4” SCH 40 (4.500 OD X .237 W)




What is the power source for the Batt Screed?


Get power anywhere with the removable and rechargeable DeWalt FLEXVOLT 60-volt lithium-ion battery, perfect for impressive power and run time.




Can the Batt Screed be pulled in only one direction?


The Batt Screed is designed to easily adapt to an either direction pull. Just push the directional button all the way on the desired side so the pipe spins away from the operator.




How do I install the expandable pipe inserts?


To install the expandable pipe inserts into the pipe you will need a ¾” ratcheting socket, wrench, or preferrably a battery impact. Push expandable insert into the end of the pipe until flange is tight against pipe end. Equally tighten the lug bolts on the expandable pipe inserts to ensure proper fitting into pipe.




Why is my machine shaking so much?


Make sure the pipe ends have been cut true and are not angled. Ends not properly cut will cause excessive shaking and may cause damage to the drive unit. Use a factory cut end of the pipe whenever possible to install the drive end on. Other things to do include checking to see if the pipe itself is bent, and avoid abrupt or excessive movement of the drive unit to reposition pipe location.




Does Curb Roller Mfg warranty their equipment?


We proudly offer a 1 year warranty on the Batt Screed BS6000.




Does the Batt Screed BS6000 have an Owner's Manual?


Yes! While a hard copy manual will come with your machine, you can find a link on the Batt Screed product page (fast travel to it here) where you can save or print the Owner's Manual from.




How do I attach the drive and static ends to the pipe?


Once both expandable screed ends are properly and securely installed in the pipe, the next step is to attach the drive end to the pipe. Make sure the battery is removed from the machine to protect the operator in case of accidental trigger activation. Lay the drive unit down next to the pipe and align the chuck to the expandable insert shaft. Push drive head all the way onto the shaft. Take one hand and roll the pipe forward until you can see down through the chuck and shaft hole. Once you have the two holes aligned install the lock pin. The drive end is now installed. Repeat this process with the T-bar assembly on the idle end.




Which way should the pipe spin?


With both operators holding firmly on the handles lightly pull the variable speed trigger to see which direction the pipe turns. The pipe should roll away from the operators for proper operation. If the pipe rolls towards the operators, simply change the rotation of the pipe by pushing the directional button on the side of the machine.




Does the machine only run at one speed?


No. Thanks to the adjustable right or left hand speed control, how much grip you put on the lever will change how fast or slow the pipe spins.




Why is my trigger sticking?


Here are some things to look for: - Check bolt on handle and loosen nylon nut if necessary. - Check slide for concrete build up. - Linkage may be bent and binding.




Why does the battery life seem short?


Here are some things that can affect battery life: - Low slump concrete or sand. - Prevent excessive concrete in front of roller. - Old, defective, or not properly charged battery.




Why won't the battery access door stay shut?


If the door isn't staying shut, check and if need be tighten door bolt.




Why is nothing happening when I pull the speed lever?


There are a few things to look for: - Check battery life by pressing indicator button. - Remove battery and reinsert. - Check all linkage for proper activation of drill trigger. - Check directional button and make sure it is depressed all the way in.

HS3000 Frequently Asked Questions

We are located outside of the United States and Canada. Can we still buy your machines?​


Of course! We have many happy customers outside of the United States and Canada. We just ask that you contact our international dealer J.D. Honigberg to set up your order. Their contact information can be found here.




What is this aluminum block on the hydraulic hoses and is the machine variable speed?


The Hydra-Screed ships with this in-line flow control block. This block allows our equipment to function properly with nearly all hydraulic power sources. This block regulates hydraulic oil flow and PSI to the machine protecting it from overload or shock from sudden directional change or stop. Tampering with or removing this block voids warranty.




How heavy is the Hydra-Screed?


The Hydra-Screed weighs approximately 100 lbs before the desired pipe length is added.




What is the power source for the Hydra-Screed?


Any hydraulic source that maintains 4 gallons per minute can effectively run the Hydra-Screed (i.e skid-steer, mini-excavator, tractor, hydraulic power pack, etc). However, if you'd like a hydraulic power unit specifically designed for use with the Hydra-Screed, we manufacture one called the Hydra-Pack.




How many feet of hydraulic hose comes with the machine and can I add more if I want?


The Hydra-Screed comes with 40' of hose. Additional hose extensions can be purchased, but we recommend not exceeding 100' of hose per machine.




What if I need several pipes or a job specific profile?


The Hydra-Screed has the ability to easily change pipes or custom profiles. The roller pipe is made of 6 inch 10 gauge round stouting and can be purchased n the desired lengths from us or your local steel provider. If you are interested in a custom profile such as a crowned street, v-gutter, flume or other shape, please send us an email with your desired specifications at info@curbroller.com or call us at 785-467-3132.




What kind of forming is required for effective and efficient use?


The Hydra-Screed will work on wood, metal, plastic, and masonite forming as well as run off existing concrete. Keeping your form stakes and bracing below the top of the form will allow for smoother operation.




Does Curb Roller Mfg warranty their equipment?


We proudly offer a 3 year warranty on the Hydra-Screed HS3000. (Just make sure you don't go beating it with a hammer or throwing it off a cliff as this will void the warranty!)




Does the Hydra-Screed HS3000 have an Owner's Manual?


Yes! While a hard copy manual will come with your machine, you can find a link on the Hydra-Screed product page (fast travel to it here) where you can save or print the Owner's Manual from.




How do I adjust the speed of the Hydra-Screed?


The Hydra-Screed comes standard with a flow control block. This is factory set and NOT adjustable. On the handle of the Hydra-Screed is a variable speed directional valve which operates left to right depending on the direction of desired rotation. The Hydra-Screed has a safety tab which is located on the directional knob and can be manually set to allow the valve to open towards the right or open to the left. To set the safety tab loosen the knob on the directional valve, turning it counter-clockwise. Once the safety stop is in the desired position, re-tighten the knob.

This block regulates hydraulic oil flow and PSI to the machine protecting it from overload or shock from sudden directional change or stop. Tampering with or removing this block voids warranty.




How heavy is the Curb Roller?


The Curb Roller weighs approximately 200 lbs with a standard drum attached. Some custom drums and machines will weigh more. Two individuals can easily lift the machine.




What is the drum or screed made of?


The drum is fabricated using metal spinnings welded to various sizes of heavy wall pipe. Some custom profiles with slopes and odd shapes are rolled out of a lighter metal to achieve desired profile.




What is the power source for the Curb Roller?


The Curb Roller is powered hydraulically and will run off nearly any hydraulic power source (i.e skid-steer, mini-excavator, tractor, hydraulic power pack, etc). However, if you'd like a hydraulic power unit specifically designed for use with the Curb Roller, we manufacture one called the Hydra-Pack.




How do I adjust the direction or speed of the Curb Roller?


The Curb Roller is designed to easily adapt to an either direction pull. It also comes with a flow control block (F) that is factory set and NOT ADJUSTABLE. To adapt the direction of pull, flip the machine over, change the directional valve position, move the drum sweep to the top side of the drum, and done! For finer speed and direction adjustment, on the handle of the Curb Roller is a variable speed directional valve which operates left to right depending on the direction of the desired rotation. The Curb Roller also comes with a safety tab which is located on the directional knob (A) and can be manually set to allow the valve to open towards the right or open towards the left. To set the safety tab, loosen the knob on the directional valve, turning it counterclockwise. Once the safety stop is in the desired position, re-tighten the knob.




How many feet of hydraulic hose comes with the machine and can I add more if I want?


The Curb Roller CM4000 comes standard with 25' foot of hose. Additional hose extensions can be purchased, but we recommend not exceeding 100' of hose per machine.

The Curb Roller has the ability to easily change drums, which makes it ideal for any curb and gutter job. We currently have 29 stock drums available (which can be viewed here), and we can also make custom profiles perfect for almost any job. (You can take a look at some past custom drums and submit a form for a quote here.)




What kind of forming is required for effective and efficient use?


The Curb Roller will work on wood, metal, plastic, and masonite forming as well as run off existing concrete. Keeping your form stakes and bracing below the top of the form will allow for smooth operation.




Is the Curb Roller hard to operate?


The Curb Roller, like any other machine, takes a very basic understanding of hydraulics and concrete. Because of its simple design, most operators become proficient with it on the first or second use. The Curb Roller comes with a waist belt designed so the operator can use proper positioning and body weight transfer to pull the machine.




Does Curb Roller Mfg warranty their equipment?


We proudly offer a 3 year warranty on the Curb Roller CM4000. (Just make sure you don't go beating it with a hammer or throwing it off a cliff as this will void the warranty!)




Does the Curb Roller CM4000 have an Owner's Manual?


Yes! While a hard copy manual will come with your machine, you can find a link on the Curb Roller product page (fast travel to it here) where you can save or print the Owner's Manual from.
