Workbridge makes it easier to work close to the concrete

The Terex Bid-Well 2418 workbridge.
The Terex Bid-Well 2418 workbridge.

The Terex Bid-Well 2418 workbridge features a unique frame design that allows the machine to fit over barrier wall steel on bridge decks, positioning workers close to the concrete to boost efficiency and productivity when hand-finishing and spray-curing slabs. 

With its low, 12-pounds-per-linear-foot (17.9-kg/m) weight, the flexible 2418 workbridge design can be used for concrete finishing applications ranging from bridges, roads, canals and side slopes to dams, airports and slabs. Its 24-inch-wide (61.0-cm) walkway and 18-inch-deep (45.7-cm) truss frame gives crew members the ability to cross freshly laid concrete and efficiently perform required finishing tasks behind the paver.  

Available 3-, 6- and 12-foot (0.9-, 1.8- and 3.7-m) truss inserts allow the machine to meet operating widths up to 105 feet (32 m). All-welded construction delivers a stable frame at extended widths, and its snap-together design eliminates dozens of nut-and-bolt connections. Telescoping end segments offer up to 10 feet (3.0 m) of leg travel - from 15 feet (4.6 m) retracted to 25 feet (7.6 m) extended - to either or both sides of the workbridge for on-the-fly width adjustments. Interlocking bottom truss castings with pin-type top sections deliver fast assembly. 

Wheel options include concave wheels that ride screed pipe on bridge projects, or pneumatic tires that allow finishing of slab-on-grade paving jobs. Optional barrier brackets are available.

The 2418 workbridge can be manually advanced to allow finishing operations to keep pace with the paver. An optional power drive unit offers simple switch control of forward and reverse machine movement.
