The Asphalt Float is the #1 labor saving attachment we sell at GECON Attachments. This skid steer attachment spreads, or “skims” and smooths the asphalt making it ready for compaction. Hydraulic adjustable wings can pinch in as close to 5 inches or spread out to 6 feet for a wide range of trench and working area. Adjustable height on the Right and Left are independent and allow for precise setting of the moldboard. Asphalt height can be from 0 inches up to 4 inches. The straight edge of the screed plows forward as fast as the skid steer goes while leaving a consistent and accurate spread. How many shovels and rakes are you using to spread the asphalt? Perhaps the best feature of the Asphalt Float is its Side Shift. A hydraulic side shift can offset the attachment 5 ½ feet allowing work to be done without running it over; Or working the shoulders, or roadside, sidewalks, etc. Every Asphalt Float comes with a third spare wing that can replace an inner wing. It mounts to the outer side and makes a true straight edge, right angle for paving up against a curb, a wall, a fence, or any hard, fixed edge. The ST Apshalt Float runs on standard flow skids (low flow) making it compatible with most skid steers on the market. The magic of the Asphalt Float hinges on the center-point bolt that the moldboard attaches to, allowing the screed to “float” and stay consistent as it follows the terrain of the skid steer’s path. Another great application of the ST is its time saving for backfilling trenches, reducing labor needed to do it the old way. Backfill dirt, gravel, stone, clay, rocks into the trench.
