The mold on the GT-3600 is strategically positioned to assure perfect placement of the concrete through the radius. Also important for a tight radius are travel speed, mix design and slump of concrete.

The hopper on the GT-3600 is designed for extra concrete capacity. Loading the hopper full with the 15 ft. (4.6 m) long, 24 in. (610 mm) wide charging conveyor prior to going into the radius allows continuous travel through the radius without waiting for concrete delivery.
The GT-3600 features GOMACO's patented simultaneous trim/pour concept. This system cuts production costs and lets you take on more jobs. The trimmerhead is designed to match the profile to provide accurate grade, resulting in high concrete yield. The versatile three-track GT-3600 achieves high production and meets accurate slipforming specifications on radius projects ranging from curb and gutter to barrier wall or safety parapet.

The GT-3600 is designed to eliminate guesswork and automatically adjusts trajectory in and out of a tight radius. The GT-3600 is equipped with three sensors. One sensor is located at the front of the mold (sensor 1); one is located at the front of the stainless (sensor 2); and one is aligned with the back of the stainless (sensor 3). As the GT-3600 enters the radius, the operator switches from (sensor 1) to (sensor 2) with a toggle switch.
