ShoulderMaster Shoulder Paving Attachments for Road Widening
ShoulderMaster manufactures custom-made road construction equipment designed to deliver a superior performance and improved safety features compared to traditional road building equipment and methods.
In 2015, the company developed the ShoulderMaster SM1500, which became the first universal skid steer / wheel loader shoulder paving attachment in Australia. Over the years, the 100% Australian owned company has developed a full fleet of purpose-built road construction equipment that is currently operational across the country, as well as in the US and the UK.
ShoulderMaster is committed to offering bespoke services for clients that require unique solutions.
Shoulder paving attachments for quickly widening road shoulders
A common problem for road networks is ageing regional roads that were not designed for the current traffic loads that they are facing. Many regional roads are too narrow, have unstable shoulders or experience edge breaks and drop offs, all of which have the ability to cause serious driving hazards. Repairing these problems is time-intensive and can expose construction workers to live traffic, which is dangerous for workers and road users.
ShoulderMaster’s shoulder paving attachments quickly and easily widen road shoulders. The ShoulderMaster SM1500 and SM2100 deliver the most efficient and least intrusive placement methods possible. Not only are they three times faster than traditional methods, they are also more than 50% more cost-effective and use up to 70% less fossil fuel.
Skid steer shoulder paver attachments
ShoulderMasters’ original skid steer / wheeled loader shoulder paving attachment, the ShoulderMaster SM1500 can lay both gravel and asphalt materials. The attachment’s features include a hydraulic tilt function for grade control, allowing materials to be placed at grades of +/- 5°. The SM1500 offers a horizontal screed adjustment range between 300mm to 1,500mm.
Another skid steer shoulder paving attachment, the ShoulderMaster SM2100 can widen road shoulders from 500mm to 2.3m using either gravel or asphalt materials. The screed can drop 150mm below and 100mm above the existing pavement, enabling materials to be placed in multiple layers with gradients up to 5%. The attachment has a screed slope adjustment of +/-5°.
ShoulderMaster provides spreader trailers as a cost-effective solution for reworking isolated sub-grade areas in heavy patching stabilisation that have failed.
The SP1000 model offers the following features:
- Holds up to 1t of product
- Variable and adjustable coverage and spread rates
- Spread width is adjustable in 400mm increments up to a total width of 1,600mm
- Vibrating hopper plates for even product application
- Low hopper height makes the SP1000 easily to fill up with product using an excavator or skid steer loader with 1t bulk bags
- Light enough to be towed by any pickup fitted with electric trailer brake controls
