The Barin bridge inspection machine will be used in Thailand for maintenance purposes
New machines from Italian supplier Barin are now being used to help maintain bridges in Thailand. The Department of Rural Roads ordered one of the Barin AB range of bridge inspection machines for use by its Bridge Construction Bureau.
This machine was installed on a suitable truck chassis to cope with the 24tonne GVW and as with other units in the Barin range, is able to operate from a single lane.
The AB 13/S unit offers a bridge barrier clearance height of 3.6m and a sidewalk clearance of 3.2m. Horizontal outreach under the bridge is 14.5m, while the maximum vertical depth the unit can reach under the bridge deck is 19m. Maximum overhead outreach is 16.7m while it has a bucket capacity of 250kg.
