Ligchine SpiderScreed is a lightweight, ultra-maneuverable drive-in screed

The SpiderScreed addresses the issues of drive-in screeds such as weight, power, navigation, and levelling capabilities. The SpiderScreed is ideal for concrete placements on upper decks, residential applications, slab-on-grade and 3D surfaces. 

A tubular aluminum main and screed head frame makes the SpiderScreed the lightest drive-in screed featuring an auger screed head or a smooth roller for multi-directional use. High-speed electric actuators drive Ligchine's patented machine levelling system that produces superior FF/FL numbers. 

Ligchine's Versa-Drive system allows for unmatched machine movement, screeding control and speed.
