Overseas manufacturing has become a part of every day business; it is an option for manufacturers to keep their costs down and profits up. However, quality control of their products is a major challenge. Thus, foreign products sold in the U.S. are typically cheaper in quality and price from their U.S. counterparts. You are looking to start a business; your main piece of equipment (curb extruder) needs to be a workhorse. It must be reliable and put out a great product.

The problem with the track and trolley system is concrete and debris gets into the bearings creating maintenance and down time. It offers quick release mold attachments. No wrench is needed like our competitors. It has a belt tensioner....
