Banged This Out Today


Another use and occupancy job the owner needed done before end of the month settlement so I had to squeeze'er in...that's what she said ...anyhoot, a couple apron blocks and some radius depressed curb.

This town requires a 12" excavation for all apron and vehicular drive blocks with 6" of 3/4" crushed stone sub-base and 6" of 4000psi concrete. 5x5 wire welded mats are also required.

Curbs are 12" deep or a total of 18" top to bottom...except depressed areas.

I told the owner he was lucky the inspector didn't push true ADA and only marked the curb...I called him to confirm this because we'd be ripping out a huge chunk of this corner if that was the case.

Nice day out anyhow...

Re: Banged This Out Today


Good day's work. As one who seldom does this type of work, I'm curious about your choice of rake.

Re: Banged This Out Today


I own just about every kind of rake and placer there is and always seem to grab the road rakes (flat head)...I'm just used to them.

Kraft makes a nice one and it's fairly reasonable...I think it's called an asphalt rake...good all around rake for tamping, pulling, screeding and knocking rock down.
