Bridge work is no problem for Terex concrete paver Bid-Well 3600

Terex says that its Bid-Well 3600 automatic paver roller is flexible enough to deliver high-quality paving for both slab-on-grade and bridge applications. Meeting a variety of inline paving and skewed bridge designs, the 3600 paver offers standard paving width configurations from 2.4-26.2m with on-the-fly paving widths changes of up to 9.1m. It quickly adapts to the contractor’s bridge deck placement and slab-on-grade paving needs. Kraemer North America recently used an MLC300 to help replace an 84-ye

Meeting a variety of inline paving and skewed bridge designs, the 3600 paver offers standard paving width configurations from 2.4-26.2m with on-the-fly paving widths changes of up to 9.1m. It quickly adapts to the contractor’s bridge deck placement and slab-on-grade paving needs.

Available inserts transition paver frame depth from 914-1,219mm at the centre to extend paving widths to 33.5m. For paving skewed bridge decks, the 3600 has a universal power crown adjuster that can be set for paving inline or offset to an adjacent hinge point opposite the other for quickly adjusting the crown when paving at a skew.

Terex says that the machine’s legs adapt to meet any challenge thanks to powered leg-height adjustments of up to 1,168mm. For paving at cross-slopes greater than 4%, the pivot leg configuration adjusts the paver to a true vertical operating position to reduce side forces placed on the rail and eliminate additional shoring. The swing-leg design delivers zero-clearance paving when working in tight applications, such as rehabilitation work and deck overlays.

Its available six-wheel-bogie leg option spreads machine weight over a wider area to lessen the load on the overhang brackets.

Meanwhile, new orange strobe lights positioned at the corners of the paver’s frame alert workers and nearby traffic when the machine is paving to enhance operating safety.

The integrated Terex Bid-Well LED lighting system decreases the harsh shadows thrown by tower lights, allowing finishers to deliver a high-quality final product. Up to 12 LED lights can be positioned anywhere on the machine. Up to four lights can be mounted directly onto the paving carriage to illuminate the paver.
