Strange Question?

What are those machines called that are used to flatten sand on driveways about to have block weave paving laid.

Our next door neighbours have the builders in and my 4 yr old is fascinated by it all. But he came running in and said 'daddy they are using a machine to flatten the sand, whats it called', I know it but I cant for the life of me think what it is......doh!

Looks a bit like a lawn mower, with a flat plate metal plate on the bottom
