McDonald's Lime | ONLIME | RaceFines

By: Mcdonald's Lime  06-Dec-2011

Placed correctly, McDonald's RaceFines™ are a very cost effective material for dairy races, tanker tracks and as a base for driveways.

The product is a 6mm all in product that has been drilled, blasted and crushed.

For best results when constructing a dairy race the following procedure should be followed:

  • Race edges should be cleaned to allow drainage
  • Form the base with our Base Coarse or a hard rotten rock type material
  • Shape the base so that you achieve approximately a 3% cross fall to shed water
  • Spread RaceFines™ over the top to a depth of 50 - 75mm (maximum)
  • Roll material with a heavy static roller or use a back blade to compact surface
  • Dampen material as rolling is commenced
  • Continue compacting until RaceFines™ material is locked into base course
  • Surface achieved should be hard and tight
  • If the above procedures are followed then you should end up with tightly compacted durable race.

  • NEVER:
  • Apply more than 75mm of RaceFines™ as this will produce soft spots that will pothole
  • Do not apply over a sand, clay or pumice type base

Please note: this information is a guide only and McDonald's Lime Limited accepts no responsibility or liability should the race fail to meet your expectations.
