GOMACO Corporation pioneered the development of the first cylinder finisher over 50 years ago. The late Harold W. Godberson, founder of GOMACO Corporation, developed and manufactured a bridge deck finisher to meet the growing needs for bridge markets. Considered to be a milestone, the cylinder finisher made GOMACO a recognized name in the construction industry.
Today, GOMACO cylinder finishers are designed for versatility with the C-750. It is easy to operate and saves time and labor costs on all of your concrete finishing projects.
Pin-connected sections provide fast setup time and the versatility to fit exact job requirements. The C-750 frame widths range from 16 feet (4.88 m) to 160 feet (48.77 m).
Wider Width Finishing
- The C-750 provides high-production results with one-pass finishing for wider widths. Pin-connected sections provide fast setup time and the versatility to fit exact job requirements with frame widths ranging from 16 feet (4.88 m) to 160 feet (48.77 m).
- The C-750 features a 41 inch (1041 mm) wheelbase. The larger bogie drive motors are geared down to allow for continuous creeping advance.
- The console and operator’s platform are designed to be positioned anywhere within the 3.5 foot (1.07 m) deep framework sections, providing excellent operator visibility.
This GOMACO C-750 uses two, three-point finishing carriages for maximum efficiency to pave both sides of a bridge deck. The left carriage has the adjustable double augers and the right carriage has the standard augers, which operate ahead of the finishing cylinders.
A C-750 is working along side of a GHP-2800 slipform paver during a project on the O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois.
Transition extensions are positioned in the center of the C-750 finisher to provide increased frame strength for widths over 120 ft. (36.58 m) up to 160 ft. (48.77 m). The frame transition extensions are available in 8 ft. (2.44 m) and 12 ft. (3.66 m) lengths, 5 ft. 4 in. (1.63 m) width, and a depth of 5 ft. (1.52 m).

GOMACO’s SL-750 is a slipform cylinder slope and canal finisher. It is easy to operate and saves time and labor costs on all your concrete finishing projects. The SL-750 is designed for fast trimming and finishing, strict tolerances, with a minimum of handfinishing.
A GOMACO SL-750 cylinder finisher working on a Hyundai test track for their vehicles manufactured in China became the first finisher to be controlled with a 3D guidance system. The project also utilized a track-mounted RC Conveyor and a 4000 series Spanit® work bridge with rubber tires.

Type: Kohler, air-cooled gasoline.
Horsepower: 18 hp (13.4 kW) @ 3000 rpm.
Electric Start: 12 volt start motor with a 25 amp regulator-rectifier.
Fuel Reservoir: Console 9 gal. (34 L), Carriage 9 gal. (34 L).
Hydraulic Oil: Console 15.3 gal. (57.9 L), Carriage 9 gal. (34 L).
Self-Contained: Hydraulic console with easy-to-operate controls, including variable travel. Can be positioned in other locations on the main frame for operator safety and convenience.
Carriage Drive: Designed for operator ease in controlling travel speed and direction of the carriage.
Traction Drive: Two drive and two idler bogies standard. Drive bogies include two hydraulically driven flanged wheels, 3.25 in. (83 mm) wide for 2 in. (51 mm) square tubing or cupped wheels to run on 2 in. (51 mm) pipe. Optional urethane wheels or urethane wheels with removable flanges.
Traction Speed: Up to 31 fpm (9.4 mpm).
Automatic Advance on C-750: Electronically controlled at the end of the finishing pass. As machine advances, the undercarriage can change attack angle and concrete finishing resumes.
Frame Construction: All-welded steel, pin-connected, main frame, 16 ft. (4.88 m) to 120 ft. (36.58 m). Finishing width is normally 4 ft. (1.22 m) less than frame width indicated.
VARIABLE FINISHING WIDTHS
Extendible Frame for Finishing Widths: 4 ft. (1.22 m), 8 ft. (2.44 m), 12 ft. (3.66 m), or 16 ft. (4.88 m) increments. The C-750 assures a specified tolerance of one-eighth inch (3.2 mm) in 12 ft. (3.66 m). Includes a self-widening capability for use on tapered decks and slabs. Self-widens up to 12 ft. (3.66 m) as machine advances. A 360 degree turntable on the upper carriage allows maximum skewing of the undercarriage to keep the finishing cylinders parallel to the center of the slab.
