Watch our Laser Screed in Action


Ligchine™ invented the “large line” sized boom screed (220 sq. ft. of coverage) in 2012. The SCREEDSAVER MAX™ is the workhorse of the Ligchine fleet, and MAX owners would say it is the best value of any boom operated laser-guided screed in the world. SCREEDSAVER MAX integrates the technologies of the standard SCREEDSAVER II™ with the added features of front wheel drive and rear wheel steering: a 90° manual pivoting drive frame; and Kubota’s 25hp D902 Diesel motor. Like all Ligchine screeds, MAX is a wireless remote controlled screed.
