Electric Screeds

It seems that everyone these days is concerned with the environment and tons of people are hopping aboard the green wagon, as more and more people have become involved in preserving the environment. Electric screeds have revolutionized the act of paving asphalt, due to the fact that the heating element used does not require the machine to use diesel fuels anymore, meaning that it costs far less to run these machines, and does not put off harmful waste into the environment.

Although there was some debate in regards to switching to electric screeds, experts agree that they are absolutely here to stay, as they are more efficient, put out less waste, and are generally better for the environment.

Increased Operator Comfort

One of the biggest concerns for many business owners, as well as the actual workers who are doing these types of jobs, is the comfort that they experience throughout the day. It can be difficult to operate one of these machines for eight to ten hours a day, five days a week, so a lot of research has gone into making the machines comfortable for those that have to operate them on a daily basis.Ramsey Paving
