A trip hazard is when two concrete sidewalk slabs come to together and one has risen or lowered creating unevenness someone could trip over. This is common occurrence caused by different reasons including tree root growth, ground compaction issues, and weather.Local government, building owners and property managers are constantly dealing with this safety issue.Let's get this job done with JIEHE scarifier. 

There are two ways to fix sidewalk trip hazards with scarifiers:

1. Completely dig out the peaked slabs and add new concrete.

The entire effected area is removed to bare ground, surface is leveled and new concrete slabs are poured. This removal usually includes the two peaked slabs and the surrounding slabs.

Pros:

Eliminates the hazard 

Allow workers to fix problems under the concrete 

New concrete is poured

Cons:

Time Consuming 

Pricey 

Shuts down sidewalk until concrete cures

2. Use a Scarifier to level the slabs without removal.

Just the trip hazard is removed using Scarifier like the JHE-200. The effected slabs are kept and are left with a textured, non-slip surface. The ground underneath is not serviced, but most times ground service is unnecessary.

Pros:

Eliminates the hazard 

Quick Long lasting fix 

Cost Effective 

Easy clean up. Dust control is an option with Sacrifier

Cons:

Workers cannot fix problems under the concrete 

Leaves a surface someone may find unappealing
