Preparing for the Job
Choosing the Curb Form
Miller Spreader has manufactured over 1600 different Curb Forms. Any of these Curb Forms
are available or you may request a Curb Form to your specific dimensions.
To Order a Curb Form:
A. If you have an existing Curb Form locate the stamped number (one (1) to five (5)
digits/letter) on the outside face of the curb form mounting flange. Submit this
number to your local Miller Dealer. Be sure to note any special features your Curb
Form can have, for example, does it operate over dowel pins, will it extrude 3/8”
(#3) reinforcing rod rebar through the center of the auger shaft, etc.
B. If you have a drawing with dimensions or a full size tracing of the exact shape of
the curb form you want to purchase, submit this information to the Miller Spreader
Company. Be sure to note any special features your Curb Form can have, for
example, does it operate over dowel pins, will it extrude 3/8” (#3) reinforcing rod
rebar through the center of the auger shaft, etc. The Miller Spreader Customer
Service Department will try to match your Curb Form information with our listing of
previously manufactured forms. If your Information matches a form made
previously, the number and drawing of this form will be sent to you. If the form has
never been made a new Curb Form Design (CFD) Number will be assigned.
C. For Curb Forms in which the shape is non-symmetrical (Drawing a vertical center
line down the center of a Curb Shape, the left and right halves of the Curb Form
Shape are not the same) a left or right hand Curb Form must be determined.
To determine Curb Form Hand for non-symmetrical Curb Forms:
i. Imagine a Curbilder equipped with the desired curb form to be in operation
moving AWAY from an observer at the rear of the machine (where the curb
comes out). See drawing below.

ii. With an observer looking at the Curbilder as shown determine
from the observer’s viewpoint on which side (left/right) the most vertical
side of the curb is being formed. The location of the most vertical side on
the Curb Form determines the hand of the form.
For example, if the most vertical side of the curb is on the observers left side, the curb
form required to extrude the curb should be designated as a left-hand form.
Note: The majority of Curb Forms (over 90%) are manufactured as Left Hand.
Curb Mix Information
Determine the mix design and select a material supplier. Because available mix and job
conditions will vary from one area to another, the following concrete and asphalt mix
specifications can be used as guides to determine exact mix requirements for your application.
General Conditions that apply to all Mixes:
 All Aggregates must be thoroughly washed in order for either the cement or asphalt to bind
properly to the aggregate.
 Moisture content in the aggregate will affect mix performance. A lot of rain water in any
aggregate used in making concrete will increase mix slump. Aggregates used to
manufacture asphalt mixes must be dry (less than 5% moisture by weight) or the steam
created in the mix will prevent sufficient mix density. Wet Aggregates will prevent asphalt
from sticking to the aggregates and cause steam, which will compromise curb density.
 TEST THE MIX BEFORE USING. The same mix formula in different geographic areas will
have somewhat different results on the job site. Avoid Mix surprises on the job site. Some
Mix adjustments are required when using different curb forms and auger sizes. Tall, narrow,
molds need lower slump (less than 1”) or less heat (asphalt mixes, less than 275 Degrees
F). Larger molds (using 8” or 10” augers) can use larger stone (up to ¾”/ #57).
 Avoid Curb Mixes with excessive amounts of sand and fine aggregates (less than 3/32”/ #8
sieve). These types of mixes can have a very smooth surface requiring little if any finishing.
However, the lack of larger stone results in a weak curb. And a high concentration of fines
will cause High Wear on the auger, compaction tube and curb form. Furthermore, a high
concentration of fines has an excessive amount of surface area requiring greater amounts of
Portland Cement or Asphalt to provide proper adhesion. Mixes with high concentrations of
fines can also result in slower machine speeds because of the “slip” of the fines past the
auger.
21
A. Concrete Curb Mix:
1) Components of One(1) Cubic Yard of Concrete Curb Mix:
a) Cement:
Use Portland Cement. Typically, Concrete Curb Mixes use 6 to 7 sacks/564-660# of
Portland Cement per cubic yard. A higher concentration of cement is required
because of the greater surface area of the smaller aggregates used in this mix. When
desired, certain Mineral Admixtures can be substituted for some but not all of the
Cement in the mix. These Admixtures include Fly Ash or Ground Granulated Blast
Furnace Slag (GGBF Slag). Consult the job specifications and your local concrete
plant to determine what allowances are possible for these Admixtures.
b) Water:
Water used in the mix must be clean and clear. Potable/Drinkable water is best
but not required. Between 25 to 40 gallons of water per cubic yard will produce 1-2”
slump depending on the moisture content already in the aggregate. Let the concrete
plant know what slump you need when the Mix is DELIVERED to the job site. They
will make allowances for the moisture content in the aggregates and travel time.
c) Aggregates: Crushed aggregates produce stronger Curb Mixes and have better
standing properties when extruding taller curbs than smooth river stone. A good
starting point is an aggregate blend having 60% sand and 40% stone.
Sand: Use Concrete sand blend with 100% passing a #8/2.4 mm Sieve.
Stone: Use Stone with 100% passing a 3/8”/9.5 mm sieve. When extruding curb
forms with 8” or 10” augers some of the 3/8” stone can be replaced with larger stone
up to ¾”/#57. If excessive voids appear in the Mix, reduce the size of the larger stone
(not the %) until the curb surface improves.
d) Admixtures:
Note: Consult the job site specifications to determine requirements/allowances
for admixtures.
1) Air Entraining Admixtures: Adds durability to Concrete Curb exposed to cold
weather and road salt.
2) Retarding Admixture: Slows down the early hardening of concrete. Extends
workability/finishing time.
3) Water Reducing Admixture: Reduces the amount of water and cement required to
achieve a given slump in the concrete. The use of this admixture can increase the
strength of the concrete.
2) A recommended mix design for one cubic yard of concrete:
Cement:
Sand:
Aggregate:
Water:
660# (7 sacks)
1,600 #, 5% moisture
1,400 #, 3/8"
Approximately 25 gallons/ 1” Slump
22
Keep loads to 3-5 yards when possible. Water content required to maintain slump will vary
according to moisture content in the aggregate. Larger loads and/or higher air temperatures
may require more water to maintain slump. Add water at job site only. Work materials to dry
side. Retardant admixture should be used at the manufacturers recommended minimum
amount. This amount may be adjusted based on local conditions. Air entrainment should be
added at approximately 5%. This amount may be adjusted based on local conditions.
B. Asphalt Curb Mix:
1) Components of One (1) Ton of Asphalt Curb Mix:
a) Liquid Asphalt: Asphalt Content should be 6.0 to 9.0% by weight of total mix
Liquid Asphalt should be AC-20 or AR-8000 (60-70 penetration). The liquid asphalt
content will also have to be raised if the mix has slag, or other absorptive
materials in it.
b) Aggregates: All aggregates must be heated and dried. Crushed aggregates produce
stronger Curb Mixes and have better standing properties when extruding taller curbs
than round river stone. A good starting point is an aggregate blend having 60% sand
and 40% stone.
When extruding curb forms with 8” or 10” augers some of the 3/8” stone can be
replaced with larger stone up to ¾”/ #57. If excessive voids appear on the surface of
the extruded curb, reduce the size of the larger stone (not the %) until the curb
surfaces improves.

C. Mix required for a given Curb Form
Use the following calculations to help determine the quantity of mix required for any given curb
form. It is usually a good practice to reduce yield per cubic yard/per ton by 5% to allow for
waste, shortages, etc.:
CONCRETE:
3,888
= lineal feet of curb per cubic yard
Area of curb form
in Square Inches
ASPHALT:
1920
= lineal feet of curb per ton
Area of curb form
in Square Inches
NOTE: Contact Miller Spreader Customer Service to obtain the Curb Form Design Sheet for
the Curb Form you are using to obtain the square inch area of the curb form.
Choosing the appropriate Auger Size for a given Curb Form
Curbilders can be equipped with one of four (4) different extrusion auger assembly sizes.
These sizes are a nominal 5”, 6”, 8”, and 10” in diameter. Note: The 10” diameter auger is
designed to work on the MC-850 and MC-900 Curbilders only.
 The square inch area and height of a curb form design are to a large degree, but
not solely, determine which auger assembly size is correct for any given curb form.
For purposes of initially matching an auger size to a particular curb form use the
curb form area: Curb Form width X height less the area of sloped side(s).
Exceptions to this guideline will be noted at the end of this section.
The following examples will help you determine the correct auger size to use with a curb form.
Please refer to the following chart.

mounting flange. Contact the Customer Service department with this number and a
Miller service representative can supply the area for that curb form. You can consult the
factory for curb form and auger size recommendations.
 IMPROPER SELECTION OF THE AUGER SIZE FOR A CURB FORM CAN CAUSE
EXCESSIVE COMPONENT WEAR, POOR MACHINE PERFORMANCE AND/OR
THE COMPLETE FAILURE TO OPERATE.

Examples of choosing an auger size for a given Curb Form
Example #1
The curb form to be used is Curb Form Design (CFD) #14. The area of this curb form is 38.9
square inches and the overall height of this curb form is 6”. Referring to the chart above see the
area of #14 curb form falls within the 33 to 55 square inch recommended range of a 6” diameter
auger. Then see that both the height and width of this curb form also fall within the
recommended range for a 6” diameter auger. For best results in terms of both production and
curb quality a 6” diameter auger is recommended.

25
Example #2
The curb form to be used is Curb Form Design (CFD)
CFD # 1021
Area 25 SQ IN
#1021. The area of this curb form is 25 square inches
Auger Size 5 ”
and the overall height of this curb form is 4”. Referring
140 Linear Feet per CU YD of concre to the chart above see the area of #1021 curb form falls
78 Linear Feet per Ton of Asphalt within the 18 to 32 square inch recommended range of
a 5” diameter auger. Then see that both the height and
width of this curb form also fall within the
recommended range for a 5” diameter auger. Because
the height and width of this curb form also fall within the
recommended height and width range of a 6” diameter
auger the temptation might be to use a 6” diameter
auger to achieve greater production/speed. However,
for best overall results in terms of production, life of
wear parts and curb quality, a 5” diameter auger is the
better choice.
The most common mistake in sizing a curb form to the correct auger size is choosing a curb
shape, which is too small for a particular auger. In example #2, the previously mentioned curb
with an area of 25 square inches would work well with a 5” diameter auger assembly, but would
most likely not work at all with a 6” diameter assembly.
The amount of material discharged by the 6” diameter auger into the curb mold would be so
great in relation to the curb size that the mold would not be able to discharge or extrude the
material fast enough. In effect, the mold becomes a “BOTTLENECK.” As a result, excessive
pressure will be created inside the form. When the density of the material in the curb form
reaches the point where it can be compacted no further, the excessive pressure in the form will
be transmitted back through the drive train, causing repeated disengagement of the safety
torque arm, raising up of the curb form and/or shear bolt breakage. To avoid the problem, the
auger size must be reduced or the curb form size increased.
The second problem in sizing curb sections to auger sizes is choosing a form that is too large
for a particular auger. An undersized auger can discharge enough material to propel the
machine, but the curb produced will have inadequate density, a curb surface full of voids and/or
a curb that will not stand up. In the most severe cases of an undersized auger, the auger will not
discharge enough material to propel the machine. An undersized auger can be corrected by
either increasing the auger size or by reducing the curb form area.
Possible exceptions:
If the curb form size is within 5-10% the recommended ranges in either upper or lower limits in
the chart above the curb form may operate with the mix in your area. Only tests with local mixes
will confirm satisfactory performance. Be aware that operating a Curbilder with an auger size
OUTSIDE of the recommended limits can cause excessive wear and/or insufficient curb density.

OPERATING THE CURBILDER WITH AN AUGER OUTSIDE THE RECOMMENDED
RANGES.
26
Choosing either a Solid or Hollow Auger
Auger assemblies can be provided as “HOLLOW” assemblies allowing the insertion of 3/8” (#3)
reinforcing rod into the curb during the extrusion process, or as “SOLID” assemblies for curbing
without rebar. Determine which type of auger is required for your job site. The augers that are
mounted onto a solid auger shaft have one (1) long shear bolt through the center of each auger.
The augers that are mounted onto a hollow auger shaft have two (2), short, specially machined
shear bolts which engage each side of the shaft but do not interfere with the rebar.
Note: Hollow Auger Assemblies can only be mounted on the LEFT side of the Curbilder.
Reviewing any Special Applications that can Apply to
your Job Site
A. Placing Reinforcing Rod/Rebar in an Extruded Curb
With a hollow auger assembly (available for 5”, 6” and 8” diameter augers) a 3/8” diameter
steel reinforcing rod can be inserted through the center of the Optional Hollow Shaft
Assembly. The Front Wheel Support must be moved away from the LEFT side of the frame
on which the Auger housing is mounted so that a special bracket can be mounted to the front
of the frame to guide the rebar into the Hollow auger Shaft. The machine operator inserts
reinforcing rod in 10’ lengths into this bracket. From the bracket the rebar then passes into
the Hollow Shaft during the curbing operation. The rod passes through the auger shaft and
curb form and into the finished curb. For radius work stranded steel aircraft cable can be
used.
When choosing a curb form to be used with reinforcing rod, curb height and configuration are
important considerations. As much material as possible should surround the rod within the
finished curb. The location of the rod from the ground is fixed for each auger size.
Therefore, it is important to have sufficient curb form height to adequately cover the rod.
With a 5” auger assembly, the top of the reinforcing rod will be approximately 3-1/2” above
the ground. With a 6” auger assembly, the top of the reinforcing rod will be approximately 4”
from the ground. With an 8” auger assembly, the top of the reinforcing rod will be
approximately 5” from the ground. A minimum of 1” and preferably 2” of material should
be on top of the reinforcing rod.
27
B. Extruding Curb over vertical Dowel Pins
With a Miller Curbilder, curb can be extruded over vertical dowel pins. This is accomplished
by raising the machine with the leveling screws at each wheel assembly in order to allow the
screw housing to pass over the pins. Curbing over dowel pins also requires a special curb
form. The form must be made with an elevated auger opening to accommodate the raised
auger assembly. It must also incorporate an opening at the bottom of the mounting flange to
allow the pins to pass into the form as the machine moves over them.
Curb forms for curbing over pins are made for a specific pin height. Therefore, the pins
cannot exceed the pin height that the curb form was designed for. Also, pin placement is
critical. Pins must be on line, not more than ½” left or right of center to prevent pins from
hitting the form.
The most important aspect to remember when considering curbing over pins is that
there must be a minimum of 5” between the top of the finished curb and the top of the
pin.
For example, to curb over 1” pins, the curb height must be 6”; over 2” pins, the curb height
must be 7”; over 3” pins the curb height must be 8”. In most cases, the Curbilder cannot
extrude rebar and pass over pins at the same time.
C. Extruding Curb Under an existing Guardrail
A Miller Curbilder Model MC-655 has an offset frame, auger housing and hopper so that
asphalt curb can be placed under existing guardrail. Supply the Miller Spreader Customer
Service Department a drawing showing the curb form shape and the guardrail dimensions
under which the curb must be placed. Our Customer Service Department will evaluate the
feasibility of your job your application.
D. Extruding New Curb over Old Curb
A Miller Curbilder can extrude new curb over old curb. A special curb form is required.
Roads that have several layers of pavement built up against the curb will diminish the curb
height. Extruding new curb over the old can increase the curb height. To build this special
curb form, both the old curb form design and the new curb form design are required. Consult
with the factory about your specific requirements.
E. Extruding Curb into an Offset Ditch
A Miller Curbilder can extrude a new curb into an excavated ditch/trench at the edge of a
paved road surface. A special curb form is required. There are some limitations to this
procedure depending on curb size, the amount of offset required and the distance to the
28
bottom of the ditch/trench. Supply the factory the curb form shape, the amount of offset and
the depth of the ditch/trench from the top of the road surface to determine the feasibility of
your application.
Layout the Job Site
Before putting the Miller Curbilder in use determine the location of the curb on the job site.
Work from either plan job site drawings or surveyors grade stakes.
A) Determine the SEQUENCE or ORDER in which each curb section will be placed.
Consider the hand(s) (Left and/or Right) of Curb Forms required, the exit areas available at
the end of straight sections and the starting locations of curbs required against walls and
other curbs. Anticipate the best sequence of moves for the concrete trucks. Note the
location of unprotected openings, walls, excavations, etc. Also note the location of any
overhead wires, openings or obstructions that will affect the curb placement sequence.
Note any job conditions that are unsafe and take corrective action BEFORE putting the
Curbilder into service. For example, correct any soft condition in base or exit areas. All
surfaces where the Curbilder must travel must be leveled within a 5% slope and compacted
in excess of 90%. DO NOT OPERATE THE CURBILDER ON SOFT, UNEVEN SURFACES
WHICH CAN CAUSE THE CURBILDER TO GET STUCK AND/OR TIP. Job site grades
must not exceed 15%/ 8.5 Degrees. Dangerous Job Site Conditions that will be present
during curb placement must be marked and protected with sufficient equipment to prevent
any injury to personnel. Examples include but are not limited to overhead wires, openings
with more than a 6” drop off, other job site work activity, etc.
B) Determine the LOCATION where each curb section will be placed. Mark all the
locations of the inside curb face. The inside curb face is the face/side of the curb that faces
toward the middle of the road or toward the center of a parking area. Then snap a chalk line
or nail in place a colored string 12” from the location of the inside face of the curb toward the
center of the road/parking area. This mark/string will be the reference for the pointer on the
front of the Curbilder.
C) Apply Adhesive.
i)
ii)
iii)
When placing Concrete Curb over an existing concrete surface, apply a spray
coating of Concrete Epoxy to the area where a concrete curb will be located on top
of a concrete surface. Permit the epoxy to become tacky before applying curb.
Follow epoxy directions for curing, amounts to be placed and safety.
When placing Concrete Curb over an existing asphalt or compacted rock surface
apply a spray coating of SS-1 Emulsified Asphalt Tack Coat to the area where a
concrete curb will be located. Apply from .05 to .15 gallons per square yard.
When placing Asphalt Curb over an existing asphalt, concrete or compacted rock
surface apply a spray coating of SS-1Emulsified Asphalt Tack Coat to the area
where a concrete curb will be located. Apply from .05 to .15 gallons per square
yard.

34
 REAR TAIL WHEEL ASSEMBLY: The Rear Tail Wheel Assembly consisting of
the Holding Bracket and Vertical Upright Tube with wheels should be mounted
with the Holding Bracket and Vertical Tube to the Rear of the Main Frame Rear
Cross Tube.
To adjust the LATERAL LOCATION of the Rear Tail Wheel Assembly turn the
crank handle CLOCKWISE until the rear wheels are 1” above the ground. Then
loosen the one (1) 3” long vertical retention Bolt on the Holding Bracket to move
the Rear Tail Wheel Assembly. Slide the Rear Tail Wheel Assembly to the Left or
Right so that the wheel closest to the curb form is no closer than 2” from the inside
edge of the curb form. Tighten the one (1) vertical retention bolt.
Note: When the Curb Form to be used is over 10” tall the Rear Wheel Outer
Upright Tube can be repositioned vertically down to gain additional height
of the frame of the Curbilder.
To Adjust the VERTICAL HEIGHT POSITION of the rear of the Curbilder frame
upward, raise the rear of the Curbilder frame as shown using the Rear Tail Wheel
Assembly. Insert two(2) jack stands under the rear of the Curbilder frame.

Holding Bracket. Then LOWER the Rear Tail Wheel Outer Tube by turning the
crank handle CLOCKWISE and at the same time pushing this tube down until the
slots in the next lower tube position can be lined up with the square holes in the
Rear Tail Wheel Bracket. Each lower slot position gains 2-1/4” vertical rear height
of the Curbilder. When the desired position is achieved, replace and tighten the
two (2) horizontal retention bolts. Remove jack stands.
35
 SAFETY TORQUE ARM: The Safety Torque Arm holds the Gearbox and Input
Pulley/Sheave in position to maintain the tension on the Drive Belts. When
properly adjusted, the Safety Torque Arm will disengage the Drive Belts when a
the drive in the Curbilder is overloaded. This overload can occur when a piece of
oversize aggregate passes through the auger and/or the curb form is too small for
the auger selected. The Safety Torque Arm Spring must be 2” overall length when
the Safety Torque Arm Handle is pushed down in the operating position. Refer to
the drawing below. To Adjust the length of the Safety Torque Arm Spring push the
handle in the down position. Then turn the adjustment nut CLOCKWISE to
DECREASE the spring length, COUNTER-CLOCKWISE to INCREASE the spring
length. To adjust tension on the Drive Belts, lift the Safety Torque Arm Handle up.
Push the Safety Torque Arm DOWN until each belt deflects 3/16” when a force of
6.7# is applied to the middle of the belt span. Hold this tension on the Safety
Torque Arm and engage the Safety Torque Arm Handle by pushing it down. A belt
tension adjusting gauge can assist in making this adjustment.
DO NOT OPERATE MILLER CURBILDER WITH THE SAFETY TORQUE
ARM OUT OF ADJUSTMENT OR SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH CAN
OCCUR.
36
 POINTER ROD: The Pointer Rod is located in the Front of the Curbilder. The operator
who is steering the machine while curb is being placed uses the Pointer Rod to follow a
chalk or string line on the ground to place the curb in the correct location on the job.
When the Curbilder is in the correct position to begin placing the curb and the chalk or
string line has been placed on the ground (see 6, “Laying Out the Job Site” above)
adjust the Pointer Rod 1” above the ground and directly over the reference string. Then
tighten the retention bolt. To avoid damaging the Pointer Rod when loading the
Curbilder onto a trailer or lifting the machine with a crane, loosen the retention bolt and
lift the Pointer Rod bottom end 6” or more above the ground.
Note: The Pointer Rod is assembled at the factory on the front of the Front Wheel
Support. When it is required to move the Pointer Rod to the front of the Curbilder
Frame a SHORTER retaining bolt is required. See drawing below for the correct
bolt size for each location for each Curbilder model. Caution: Do not use a bolt
length other than what is specified or the bolt will not tighten all the way and/or there
will be interference between the bolt and other parts.
 EMERGENCY STOP SWITCH(ES): Refer to the “SAFETY” section of the manual,
“Operation of this Equipment”, E.1. and “Operating the Curbilder,” page 29. Locate ALL
of the Emergency Stop Switch(es) on your machine. In the event of an Emergency,
know how to stop the Engine/Auger on the Curbilder using these switch(es).
37
 INSTALL THE CURB FORM WITH THE CORRECT AUGER SIZE: Refer to “Preparing
for the Job”, Section #1 “Choosing the Curb Form” and Section #3 “Choosing the
appropriate Auger Size for a given Curb Form.” Determine which side the Auger
Housing Assembly and Curb Form are to be mounted on the Curbilder. To assemble an
Auger Housing Assembly and Curb Form to the Frame of a Curbilder:
1) Place the Curbilder on a level, concrete or asphalt surface. Chock the wheels
as shown. Push in any one (1) Emergency Stop Switch and remove the Spark
Plug Wire(s) to prevent an Accidental Start.
2) Loosen the Wing Nuts on each of the two (2) Hopper Retention Bolts and
swing the bolts out of the slots in the hopper flanges.
3) Remove the Hopper from the machine.
4) Remove the Chain Guard attached to the frame with two (2) 3/8”-16NC Bolts.
5) Loosen and remove the one (1) Retention Bolt Assembly from the Chain
Tension Idler. Then remove the Chain Tension Idler.
6) Raise the Curbilder up by turning the cranks COUNTER-CLOCKWISE on the
three (3) Uprights. Raise the Curbilder high enough so that the Auger Housing
Assembly can be slid under the frame of the machine and into the approximate
mounting location. Note: The Lugs on the top of the two (2) vertical mounting
flanges of the Auger Housing should be pointing toward the front of the
machine with the open end of the auger pointing toward the rear of the
machine. Position the two (2) vertical mounting flanges approximately ½” to
the rear of the two(2) frame cross rails to which they will attach.
7) Lower the machine so that the four (4) mounting holes on the frame cross rails
are level and in line with the four (4) mounting holes in the vertical mounting
flanges of the Auger Housing.
8) Slide the Drive Chain onto the Drive Sprocket attached to the Output Shaft of
the Gearbox and the Driven Sprocket attached to the shaft on the Auger
Housing.
9) Slide the Auger Housing Assembly forward until the two(2) vertical mounting
flanges of the Auger Housing are flush against the two(2) mounting cross rails
of the frame. Then line up the four (4) mounting holes of the Auger Housing
with the holes in the frame. Attach the Auger Housing to the frame with four (4)
½” Bolts, Lock Washers, Flat Washers and Nuts. Note: Face the four (4) bolt
heads toward the Middle of the machine.
10) Reattach the Chain Tension Idler. Refer to the drawing for the correct position
of the Idler. Note: When assembling the Chain Tension Idler to the frame of
the machine the long leg of the attaching bar always faces UP. When
attaching an Auger Assembly to the LEFT side of the Machine (standing at the
rear of the machine looking forward) the Idler Sprocket engages the LOWER
SIDE of the bottom leg of the chain and pulls up against the chain. When
attaching an Auger Assembly to the RIGHT side of the Machine the Idler
Sprocket engages the TOP SIDE of the TOP leg of the chain and pushes
down. Adjust the tension on the Chain using the Chain Tension Idler Assembly
so there is 3/16” Slack in the middle of the chain span. Torque the Chain
Tension Idler Bolt to 60 LBS. FT. Torque.

11) Check the Alignment of all three (3) sprockets using a straight edge. Adjust
Driver and/or Driven Sprockets so that all sprockets are in line +/-1/32”
39
12) Reattach the Chain Guard.
13) Assemble the Deflector in the correct position in the bottom of the Hopper for
the Auger size selected.
14) Install the Hooper in the machine sliding the bottom opening of the hopper into
the top opening of the Auger Housing Assembly. Secure the hopper to the
frame by swinging the two (2) Hooper Bolts into the slots in the Hopper
Flanges. Tighten both Wing Nuts on the Hopper Bolts.
15) Attach the Curb Form to the flanged end of the Compaction Tube using three
(3) ½”-13NC Bolts, Lock Washers and Nuts. Then turn the “T” bolt over the
end of the Curb Form CLOCKWISE until the end of the bolt makes firm
contact with the end of the curb form. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THIS “T”
BOLT. See page 8, item #5 for drawing.
40
B. Preparing Curbilder for Operation
 Spray inside of hopper, compaction tube, and form with No. 2 fuel oil or kerosene
when extruding asphalt curb. Spray with water when extruding concrete curb.
 Position Curbilder so that the inside face of the curb form is in the proper location
to begin extrusion. Curbilder should start from 12” - 18” ahead of where curb is to
begin.
 Inspect the front wheel assembly horizontally to make sure the front wheels will
not track in the adhesive. Adjust Rear Wheel Assembly vertically so that the
discharge (rear) end of curb form just touches the base course. Adjust both Front
Wheel Assemblies vertically to lift the flange (front) end of the Curb Form 1/8” to
¼” above the base course. (Rear discharge end of curb form will touch base, front
flanged end of curb form will not).
 Set guide pointer directly over chalk/string line approximately 1” above pavement.
C. Assign Crew to Work Stations
 A crew of three(3) is required to run Curbilder if using concrete. One person is required
to steer machine and apply brake when required. A second person is needed to tend
the hopper and break up any material that bridges over the auger. This person will need
to adjust machine height as required. A third person is required to provide signals to the
concrete truck driver and to feed concrete material into the hopper using the chute of the
truck.
 A crew of two (2) is required to run Curbilder if using asphalt. One person is
required to steer machine and apply brake when required. A second person is
needed to tend the hopper and break up any material that bridges over the auger.
This person will need to adjust machine height as required. An additional two to
four persons will be required to bring asphalt to the Curbilder using wheelbarrows
unless a Curbloader is used in which case one (1) additional person is required.
 Assign one or two finishers to detail curb and cut expansion joints (concrete curb
only) if required.
41
D. Curbilder is now in position to extrude curb.
 Start engine and idle five (5) minutes. When ready to extrude curbing, increase
engine speed to full throttle (3,000 RPM) to engage automatic clutch, thereby
driving the extrusion auger. DO NOT RUN CURBILDER AT PARTIAL THROTTLE
OR DAMAGE TO CENTRIFUGAL CLUTCH WILL RESULT.
 Fill hopper slowly with curb mix and allow curb form to fill. Feed Hopper of
Curbilder with asphalt using wheelbarrows or Curbloader. Feed Hopper of
Curbilder directly from concrete truck using discharge chute.
 As material nears the discharge end of the curb form, block the opening in order
that the material will be compacted. (A piece of wood or a flat shovel work well.)
 The Curbilder starts moving forward as material is extruded through the curb form.
THE FORCE OF EXTRUSION PROVIDES PROPELLING POWER.
 After Curbilder moves forward, the curb may be struck off with a shovel at the
desired starting point. (This excess material may be reused in the Curbilder). If
advanced start is not possible, starting end of curb may be hand shaped with
finishing trowel.
 Fill hopper with curb mix at a steady rate. It is best to operate the Curbilder at a
steady rate with as few of stops/starts as possible.
 Steer Curbilder keeping the pointer on the chalk line/string.
 Optimum compaction has been designed into the Curbilder and the curb form.
Greater compaction will be obtained when the machine is operating uphill, when
the brake is applied, or by raising the front wheel assemblies, transferring weight
to the curb form. Lowering the front wheel assemblies decreases compaction by
decreasing the weight carried on the curb form.
 When the Curbilder is not extruding material, throttle engine down to disengage
automatic clutch so the auger stops turning and machine vibration does not break
apart curb.
 Never allow material to stand in the hopper when the Curbilder is not in operation.
Finish out the material in the hopper, raise the machine 1” above the curb and shut
the machine off if there will be a five (5) minute or longer wait until the next truck
arrives. If the wait on the next truck will be longer than 30 minutes pull the
Curbilder forward until the end of the curb form clears the extruded curb. Then
lightly spray the hopper and the inside of the curb form with either fuel oil or water,
depending on the curb mix used.
 At the end of a run, cut off curb with a shovel and finish with hand trowel as
required. The excess material may be reused if needed. Elevate the machine
approximately 4-5” using the three (3) crank adjustments (Two(2) in Front, One(1)
in Rear) and pull the Curbilder away from the fresh curb.
42

A) To clean the Curbilder after using Asphalt, remove the curb form, compaction tube, and
extrusion auger. Wash and spray parts with No. 2 fuel oil or kerosene. Spray inside of
hopper with No. 2 fuel oil or kerosene. Scrape off all asphalt, which adheres to any
operational surfaces. Inspect auger for wear, reverse or rebuild as required. After cleaning,
grease auger shaft before placing the auger back onto shaft.
B) To clean the Curbilder after use with Concrete, remove the curb form, compaction tube,
and extrusion auger. All parts should be cleaned with water and all deposits scraped from
Curbilder. The inside of the hopper and the auger housing should be thoroughly cleaned
with water, and the auger shaft should be greased, before placing the auger back onto shaft.
For long term storage spray all wear parts with a light protective coating of No. 2 fuel oil.

Additional Notes regarding Machine Maintenance:
1)
Engine
Oil Grade and Type along with Additional Engine maintenance is described in the Engine
Owner’s Manual supplied with each Curbilder. Follow additional maintenance items as
recommended by the Manufacturer. Use engine motor oil to lubricate engine throttle
pivot/wear points.
2)
Bearings
Grease Bearings as recommended with NLGI No. 2 Extreme Pressure (EP), Lithium Base
Grease. Grease all bearings with a handgun to avoid seal damage. Apply enough lube
that grease just begins to leak past seals.
3)
Gearbox
Use either 90 Weight Mineral Gear Oil meeting ISO 220 or 75W-90 Multigrade Synthetic
Gear Oil in the gearbox.
a) Miller Curbilders have used two (2) different gearbox designs. The Gearbox used on
machines manufactured up to August, 2011 (up to Serial Number J13861) are shown in
the drawing below. This Gearbox requires two (2) pints of Gear Oil. To inspect Lube
Level remove inspection port plug as shown in drawing. Fill gearbox to level of this hole.
Add oil if required through the Breather/Fill Port located on the top angled surface of the
gearbox near the Safety Torque Arm Assembly. When replacing Gear Oil, remove one of
the two drain plugs at the bottom of the gearbox. Drain the Gear oil when it is hot. Flush
the inside of the gearbox with Lubriplate Syn Flush or equal before adding new oil.
47
b) The Gearbox used on machines manufactured after August, 2011(Serial Number J13862 and later) are shown in the drawing below. This Gearbox requires three and onehalf (3-1/2) pints of Gear Oil. To inspect Lube Level, remove the Oil Level Inspection Port
Plug the location shown in drawing. This Inspection Plug is located on the end plate of
the right side of the gearbox below the frame rail near the torque arm assembly. Fill
gearbox to the bottom level of this hole. Add oil if required through the Breather/Fill Port
located on the rear side of the gearbox housing. When replacing Gear Oil, remove the
cover at the lower end(left side) of the gearbox. Drain the Gear oil when it is hot. Flush
the inside of the gearbox with Lubriplate Syn Flush or equal before adding new oil.
The Gearbox should be inspected frequently as to its location on the output shaft. The
clamping collars four(4) set screws must be tight on the shaft and with either the two(2)
speed reducer-housing bolts or the housing itself should touch the front end of the motor
mount.
4) Compaction Tube
The compaction tube must be inspected regularly and kept clean and free of holes. For
holes in the compaction tube, steel patches can be welded on the inside of the STEEL
compaction tube and ground smooth to maintain proper auger clearance. CAST
Compaction Tubes cannot be repaired. When the compaction tube is damaged or worn
beyond repair, a new compaction tube must be purchased.
5) Augers
Each extrusion auger has been designed to give double life against abrasive wear by
being interchangeable end for end. During the daily check if the clearance between the
inside of the compaction tube and the outside auger edge exceed the limits below turn it
end for end, placing the unworn end of the auger to the discharge side of the auger
housing. On machines equipped with multiple augers (2 or 3), all augers can be turned
48
end for end and front and rear positions changed to get optimum wear. Do not permit
auger wear beyond these limits or loss of performance and/or machine damage will
result. Avoid permitting an auger to be worn in the shape of a Christmas Tree.
Note: Hard Aggregates, Curb Mixes with excessive sand content and/or Small Curb
Forms in relation to Auger Size will cause more rapid auger wear.
The WELDED extrusion auger diameter should be maintained to within 1/8” to 3/16” of the
inside diameter of the compaction tube and auger housing. Welded extrusion augers may
be built up with a hard surfacing electrode when excessive wear decreases both auger
diameter and thickness. The wearing surfaces of the auger that will need to be built up
with hard surface welding wire are:
1) Both Outside Edges of the entire auger.
2) Both Ends of the Auger including the first 1-1/4 pitch (450 Degrees) of Auger Flighting
and the outside surface of the Tube (Approximately 5” in from each end). Apply the
Hard Face Weld to the face of the flight pointing toward the ends of the auger.
HARD FACING INSTRUCTIONS
Welding repair procedure:
1. Two layers of weld for maximum wear.
2. Weld as cold (Low Heat) as possible to prevent dilution of hard surfacing with base
metal.
3. Position auger to enable welding to be done in a down hand motion.
4. 5/32” - 3/16” diameter electrode, on face of first flight and nose and on outside edges
of all flights.
Recommended electrodes or equivalent:
 McKay - Hardalloy 40
 Airco - Aircolite 59
 Alloy Rods - Weararc 40
 Hobart – Fabtuff 960(MIG)
The CAST augers are available only in the 5” and 6” sizes. Each auger “half” is 9” long.
The cast extrusion auger diameter should be maintained to within 3/8” of the inside
diameter of the compaction tube and auger housing. Cast extrusion augers should be
replaced when they exceed the 3/8” limit. Replace augers when they are damaged or
worn out. Never strike a cast auger with a hammer. If auger is struck it will break and
possibly cause personal injury. Remove the auger from shaft only by pulling it by hand, or
pressing it off with an arbor press. Never drop a cast auger. IT WILL BREAK!
3) Centrifugal clutch
The centrifugal clutch must be checked for alignment and tightness of the set screw, key
and the clutch retaining bolt on the engine shaft. To inspect the Clutch remove the center
section of the Belt Guard (on Machines manufactured after July 2007).
On machines manufactured before July 2007, remove the entire Belt Guard to make this
Inspection.
49
4) Belts
Adjust the belts for 3/16” of depression with a force of 6.7# in the middle of the belt
span. To adjust tension on the Drive Belts, lift the Safety Torque Arm Handle up.
Push DOWN the Torque Arm until each belt is tensioned properly. Hold this tension
on the Torque Arm and engage the handle by pushing it down. A belt tension
adjusting gauge can assist in making this adjustment. Refer to page 34 for Belt
Tensioning Detail.
Replace belts with matched pairs only.
5) Safety Torque Arm Release
The safety torque arm release spring must be maintained at the proper tension. The
Safety Torque Arm Spring must be adjusted to 2” overall length when the Safety
Torque Arm Handle is pushed down in the operating position. Refer to the drawing
below. To adjust the length of the Safety Torque Arm Spring push the handle in the
down position. Then turn the adjustment nut CLOCKWISE to DECREASE the
spring length, COUNTER-CLOCKWISE to INCREASE the spring length. Refer to
page 34 for Safety Torque Arm Adjustment procedures.
Over tensioning the safety torque arm spring to overcome mix, or application
problems can cause injury or death from failure of the Torque Arm Release
Assembly to disengage the belt drive should the Curbilder become overloaded. A
Curbilder can become overloaded due to oversize aggregate, too small of a feeding
tool jamming in the auger and/or using too small of a Curb Form in relationship to
the size of the auger. Further, failure of the Safety Torque Arm Release Assembly
to disengage the belt drive will cause premature wear or failure of drive train and
extrusion components.
6) Chain
Adjust the chain for 3/16” of slack in the middle of the chain span. Chain adjustment is
accomplished by adjusting the idler sprocket vertically up or down. Lube Chain as shown
in chart with 30wt or 10-30wt Detergent Motor Oil. Apply Oil to both sides of the chain at
the gaps between the side bars. Use spray/drip oilcan to apply lube. Refer to page 37 for
Chain Assembly Detail.
