Albion Engineering Rover Backer Rod Installer Operation Video Transcript

  • Achieve higher speed, quality, productivity, craftsmanship, and consistency than the traditional labor intensive method
  • Three passes are required along with downward force from the operator
  • [Supplemental Description:]
    • A single operator walks behind the Rover, pushing it forward. The Rover continuously inserts backer rod into a concrete floor expansion joint at a consistent depth, while feeding backer rod from an integrally mounted spool.
    • The operator breaks the backer rod at the end of a run and uses a Backer Rod Insertion Tool to finish the process of inserting and cutting the backer rod to length.
    • A similar procedure occurs at the start of a run. The operator uses the Rover to insert a short section of backer rod, stops, and uses the Backer Rod Insertion Tool to finish the new starting point, before resuming operation.
    • The single operator repeats the entire process for each section of concrete expansion joint.
  • Lightweight, portable and easy to set up
  • Larger wheel / hose for larger backer rod
  • Easy to get around manholes and other obstacles
