Laying Pavers the Dutch Way

The Tiger Stone is an electrical machine that lays sheets of pavers from a sliding platform. Operators just load the pavers from a hopper to a sliding board in the desired configuration. Once in position the side guides or edging plates connected to the sliding board of the machine are adjusted to the desired width. Sensors on the side guides allow the machine to exactly follow the road edge; workmen don't steer it. Once the sheets of bricks/pavers are in place on the ground, a mini-loader, which is also feeding pavers into the hopper, tampers the new pavers by force of its weight.
