This contractor is at work on a large canal project in Rancaqua, Chile. They are using two GOMACO CP-650s, one for concrete finishing and one equipped with a compaction roller for the grade. The RC Conveyor on the project is used for placing both the rock for the grade and the concrete for the canal.

This SL-650 is equipped with crawler tracks. It is trimming the grade of a slope on a project in Spain. It is trimming with the optional trimming undercarriage attachment, prior to lining the canal with concrete. The machine uses an automatic grade and steering control system to obtain the proper grade.
The C-650-F form cylinder finisher is ideal for finishing this city street project. This machine is mounted on bogies that run on rail. Available for the C-650-F is the automated grade control system to compensate for any variance in the rail positioning. Pin-connected sections provide fast setup time and the versatility to fit exact job requirements.
GOMACO equipment is "Preferred" for the world's waterways and any type of slope project. Slope and canal trimmers and finishers are designed for fast trimming and finishing, strict tolerances, even on 1:1 (45 degree) slopes, with a minimum of handfinishing.
This CP-650 finishes the three-sided canal in Portugal in one pass. The canal had a slope of 1.5:1 with a bottom width of 6.6 feet (2 m). An RC Conveyor was placing concrete on grade in front of the CP-650, and a Spanit® work bridge followed the finisher.
