Miller Spreader Co.

Miller Spreader Co. adds the MC250 to its Curbilder line of curbing machines. It can be used in a variety of applications that require the placement of durable concrete edging such as golf courses, parks and recreation areas, water retention areas, garden borders and miniature putting greens. In addition to decorative landscape curbing, the MC250 applies to commercial tack down curbing, ranging from low profile rollover curbs to standard parking lot curbing. The auger drive provides high-density extruded curbing that eliminates flat spots and weak areas in the curb that are common with a plunger-style drive machine.
