Stabilcorp’s cutting-edge road widening and repair machine – the ShoulderMaster – tackles dangerous narrow road and crumbling edges. As well as making roads safer, the universal skid steer paving attachment helps governments, councils and contractors to save money, cut repair time, minimise disruption to traffic and reduce fuel consumption.
Stabilcorp launched its ingenious ShoulderMaster unit to the commercial market in October last year. Since then it has continued to garner industry praise and recognition.
The ShoulderMaster won the Innovation Award at Civenex last year, was a finalist in the Product Innovation Award category of the Earthmover and Civil Contractor Awards and was recently named as a finalist in the 2015 Australian Road Safety Awards.
Attendees to the Roads & Civil Works Expo in May, run in conjunction with the International Truck, Trailer & Equipment Show 2016 (ITTES2016) and Waste Management in Action, will get to see the innovative machinery firsthand.
Peta Pinson, Stabilcorp Managing Director, says two models will be on display to attendees and potential buyers at the show – the original ShoulderMaster unit which can tackle asphalt and gravel maintenance and a gravel-specific model.
“The gravel model gives councils and contractors who work in rural and regional areas with predominantly gravel roads the opportunity to still use the ShoulderMaster,” says Mrs. Pinson.
Stabilcorp is also using the Expo as an opportunity to showcase its newly developed SpreadMaster technology. The SpreadMaster is a tow-along stabiliser trailer used for spreading lime and other cementitious binding agents. It’s specifically designed for the heavy patching works typically undertaken by local and state road authorities, councils and contractors.
In addition to a dedicated exhibition space, Stabilcorp will show the ShoulderMaster in action on the show’s Test Track.
“Lot’s of people will want to see the stationary displays but to actually see the application of it in action and how it works is really important for contractors and councils,” says Mrs. Pinson.
She explains that a big draw card for Stabilcorp in its decision to exhibit at the Expo was the show’s anticipated number of attendees.
Since its inception, ITTES has grown to attract in excess of 35,000 attendees, and with the inclusion of the Roads & Civil Works Expo and Waste Management in Action, that number is anticipated to grow to more than 40,000 at this year’s event.
“Our decision to exhibit was based on the calibre of the size and the potential visitors that are going to come through, and we’re just anticipating it will be a huge opportunity for the ShoulderMaster to be there and be a part of it,” says Mrs. Pinson.
