Mud bed robots!

Maybe this is old news. I thought it looks pretty cool for large commercial applications. It's an instagram video...

We had a vibrating power screed years ago we used on big work. You set it on rails, adjusted for desired level and then started dumping mud.

It's tamping down and flattening down the dry pack. Isn't it???

Looks to me like it might be mixing it. Looks like instead of tamping it's shoving the dry mud out of its way.

Dave, I've seen those vibrating power screeds use to place concrete (tennis courts), but never heard of it for deck mud. How does the mud get packed when using one of those?

It kind of works like a snowplow. Doesn't get high compression and not sure what the number was but not crumbly. Didn't think about those things at that point in my career. Back then I was proud to have a spiral mixer instead of a paddle and bragged about having to re-line the barrel.
