Job-Proven Cylinder Finisher

GOMACO's cylinder finishers are designed with versatility. They are easy to operate and save time and labor costs on all your concrete finishing needs.

 

They are job-proven cylinder finishers with multi-application capability for:

- Streets

- Highways

- Building slabs

- Parking lots

- Airport aprons

- Tennis courts

- And almost any concrete slab

 

Pin-connected sections provide fast setup time and versatility to fit exact job requirements. The C-650's frame width is from 24 ft. (7.32 m) to 56 ft. (17.07 m) and the finishing width is from 19 ft. (5.79 m) to 51 ft. (15.54 m).

 

 

 

 

Flat Slab Finishing

If the project calls for street or airport paving, parking lots, building slabs, tennis courts or almost any type of flat slab, the GOMACO C-650 is ideal.

 

Consolidates and Finishes

The C-650 cylinder finisher incorporates a consolidation pass in the finishing concept. This provides additional compaction and eliminates spalling and voids to meet the most rigid engineering inspection.

 

Troweling Time

The C-650 allows you to pour building slabs with lower slump concrete, enabling the crew to get on the slab with power trowels shortly after the slab is finished. The finish that is left will cut your troweling time in half.

 

Running Forms

The finisher can run on forms for paving streets or building slabs. When pouring building slabs in bays, the outside bays can be poured on forms. The inside bay can be poured by laying a square rail on the outside bays and pouring in between. The same principle is used in street paving with slipformed curb and gutter. The curb and gutter is first placed on each side of the street to be paved. The street is then paved between the curbs by running on a rail placed in the gutters or on neoprene wheels. Paving in this fashion leaves 6 in. (152 mm) or less in handfinishing at each edge of the street.

 

Transportability

Optional transport axles and towing tongue permit the C-650 to be towed on the job site. For over-the-road travel, it can be loaded on a flatbed or loaded in sections and assembled to the exact width of the job site.

 

 

C-650-S

A GOMACO C-650-S with a center-mounted PTA (power transition adjuster) finishes 11 meters (36 ft) wide on a project by San Nicolas de los Arroyos, Argentina.

 

 

 

C-650-F form cylinder finisher

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.

 

 

 

C-650

The world's largest canal, located in western India, was lined with GOMACO equipment including RC Conveyors, 750 series trimmers and finishers, 6000 Walkway Spanit work bridges and 650 canal pavers.

 

 

 

C-650-S

The C-650-S, powered by a 50 hp (37.3 kW) CAT diesel engine, finishes this city street. This machine is equipped with two 11 ft. (3.35 m) long, hydraulically powered, gear-driven crawler tracks. The operating speed is variable up to 20.5 fpm (6.25 mpm). Automated steering and grade control is available.

 

 

 

 

 

You Can Do More With The C-650

The C-650 can be equipped with the following to handle unique situations:

- Pivot point operations: Waste treatment facilities which require a 360 degree concrete finish can easily be accomplished with the C-650.

- Vib-O-Pac: It handles low-slump and high-density overlays with ease.

- Skewed carriage: A 360 degree turntable on the upper carriage allows maximum skewing of the undercarriage to keep the finishing cylinder parallel to the center of the slab.

- Patented three-point finishing system: The auger serves to level the concrete, the cylinder consolidates and finishes the concrete and the float pan seals and textures the surface. Using the 10 in. (254 mm) diameter auger, the same diameter as the cylinder, assures proper leveling and grade preparation for the finishing cylinder. The auger is hard faced for a greater life span. The auger/cylinder is adjustable in height on-the-go by raising or lowering the front elevation jacks. The final step in the three-point finishing method is the 25 in. (635 mm) by 22 in. (559 mm) GOMACO float pan, which follows the cylinder and seals and textures the surface. Adjustable, double, 10 in. (254 mm) diameter cylinders and augers and double float pans are available.

- Pan-type vibrator: It is used for the latex overlay applications or with protruding fin for street work.

- Rotary stinger vibrator: The GOMACO rotary stinger vibrator attachment automatically rotates 180 degrees at the end of each pass. This keeps the vibrator pulling through the material with the eccentric always trailing and provides vibration to the end of the pass. The angled vibrator allows maximum depth consolidation. This single vibrator system eliminates the expense of a double vibrator system and the need for double hydraulics.

 

 

GOMACO's SL-650 Slope & Canal Finisher

GOMACO’s SL-650-S is a slipform cylinder slope and canal finisher equipped with tracks and the SL-650-F is a form cylinder slope and canal finisher equipped with bogie wheels. Both machines are easy to operate and save time and labor costs on all your concrete finishing projects. The SL-650-S and SL-650-F are designed for fast trimming and finishing, strict tolerances, even on 1:1 (45 degree) slopes, with a minimum of handfinishing. Finishing widths are from 19 ft. (5.79 m) to 51 ft. (15.54 m).

 

 

 

 

Slope & Canal Finishing Around The World

CP-650 canal

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.

 

 

 

SL-650 canal

A GOMACO SL-650 canal machine finishes a new irrigation canal on the Adige River in northern Italy.

C-650 canal

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.

 

 

 

CP-650 canal

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.

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.
