A dicussion of the adaptability of the various types of equipment for concrete road construction is rather dangerous. Criticism of any particular equipment is resented by the machinery companies, and they immediately assume that the author is trying to undermine their business. In the interests of road construction, it is believed that matters of this character are not dicussed as fully as they should be. Many contractors have become enthusiatic over the arguments put forth by salesmen, and have invested altogether too much money in equipment that did not produce proper results. It is believed that much good can come from a discussioon of what really should be used in the construction of concrete roads at a reasonable cost.
