The SpiderScreed Series is a drive-in system designed for upper deck concrete and slab-on-grade screeding applications. Unveiled for the first time at World of Concrete 2019, the drive-in SpiderScreed machine was designed to be lightweight and powerful, featuring a 100% TIG welded tubular aluminum cage design that keeps overall weight down to approximately 1,100 lbs. (500kg). Its patent pending 3-wheel Versa-Drive system offers all-wheel drive, independent zero turn drive, up to 90° horizontal drive, and lateral drive. With a power to weight ratio of 55 lbs. (25kg) per horsepower, the machine allows for lower slumps and cooler running at all times. It also incorporates Ligchine’s patented machine leveling system to insure flatter floors and greater compaction than simple screed head only leveling systems.
The SpiderScreed Series is currently available for preorder. The machine will enter production in the second quarter of 2019, with initial deliveries at that time. Pricing, configuration, and additional information is available from Ligchine and its authorized dealers.
