Cobra. The Cobra is the first machine in the industry that has a stainless steel body and a removable stainless steel cylindrical hopper. With a re-engineered power train the Cobra is a fast, efficient, powerful extruder.
Curb-King, as their website explains, developed and patented the orbital ram machine with the self-feed hopper to solve the hump or bridge buildup over the plunger, and the 20% wasted concrete dump on the side of the curb problems. The self-feed hopper solved the bridging problem by moving one complete wall of the hopper. This would break any bridge that formed.
The waste problem and the compaction problem were solved with the orbital motion. The ram comes in pushing the curb into the slipform, at the end of the stroke the ram wipes upward filling the top half of the curb. As the ram returns to the starting position it does so in a high position going over any material that squeezed behind the ram. With the next stroke most of the waste is put into the curb.
