Gator Glide Concrete Walking Groover

Concrete Walking Groovers

GatorLoy™ Concrete Walking Groovers include Fixed Adjustable Head or Ultra Twist™ Pivoting head. Made from Gator Tool's own proprietary alloy, these concrete groovers reduce surface closure allowing the bleedwater to evaporate. Gator Glide™ unique Walking Groovers both float and place control joints at the same time. It's not a matter of if but when concrete cracks will form in the concrete. Temperature changes and concrete shrinkage are a few situations where concrete may crack. Placing control joints in a finisher's way of determining where the concrete will crack and making sure it happens in a straight line and not randomly. As a general rule, concrete control joints should be placed at 25% of the depth of the slab. As an example an 8" concrete slab should have a groove depth of 2". Joints should also be spaced out properly at least 2-3 times the thickness of the concrete. An 8" slab should have control joints every 16-24 feet.
