Should you think about hiring a road profiler

Posted on

Whether you are working farming, civil engineering or any form of construction, you will probably have come to appreciate the benefits of earthmoving equipment. Whenever you need to clear the ground and prepare it for something, you must have the right equipment to complete those tasks in a reasonable timeframe. While in many cases, you could get the work done by hand, it would take far too long and any delays could leave you with workers and equipment standing idle waiting for their stage of the project to begin. There are lots of different types of earthmoving machinery that you could hire, and which machine is right will depend on your situation, but one of the most widely used machines is a road profiler. You can use a road profiler to smooth the final road surface before asphalt laying, but it can be used for much more than its name might suggest. Here are two more times that you might want to use a road profiler to clear your ground.

Milling the rock

Do you have a surface which you need to become lower than it presently is? Maybe you have road tunnel that needs to be able to accommodate higher vehicles without them hitting the tunnel roof. Perhaps you need to level foundations or simply make a piece of ground lower by removing a concrete surface. The easiest solution to this common problem is to use a road profiler to mill down the surface until it reaches the desired level.

Removing a road surface

If you work in the construction industry and have been asked to replace the surface of a road, then you can't lay a new surface on top of the old one. To create a stable, long-lasting surface, you must first tear out the asphalt which is no longer fit for purpose. Only once that is done can you lay a fresh surface. To remove the old surface, earthmoving machinery such as a road profiler is the best option. If you have a private road on your land to repair, then you might be able to take your time and do the work manually, but when working on public roads, it's important to be able to reopen the road without delay which means that earthmoving equipment is required.
