This unique machine provides access underneath road and railway bridges, as well as viaducts and other structures.
The Barin Automatic Bridge Control ABC 50/C, known as a crawler, can be used for the inspection and maintenance of road bridges to guarantee a safe, quick, and economic approach for accessing those structures where large under bridge inspection platform vehicles are not feasible.
Working With Our Barin ABC 50/C Crawler Under Bridge Unit
When the job you have requires under bridge access but provides limited deck access, a lighter weight crawler unit can be just the ticket.
These vehicles have been specially designed to be operated on narrow sidewalks, pedestrian bridges, or sidewalks with low load capacity restrictions. Its total weight of just over three tons is equally distributed on both crawler tracks. In addition, the ABC 50/c has a transport height of just over 10 feet allowing for transport on a standard trailer.
While smaller in size than many under bridge platform vehicles, the reach and platform size are still impressive making this a highly versatile choice. With a nearly 13.5-foot maximum lowering depth and a 180° rotation range, the ABC 50/C offers ample reach and access for almost any under bridge task.
You know that time is money and not having to use scaffolding or some other specialized form of under bridge access means you save time and money. In fact, instead of hours spent setting up, using the ABC 50/C crawler means your crew can be working soon after you’ve positioned it on the bridge deck and placed the platform.
In addition, the low profile and broad width of the Barin ABC 50/C Crawler offers great stability and exceptional safety. With its ability to access smaller approaches, it is a versatile and effective solution for most any under bridge inspection, maintenance, and repair assignment.

Advantages Of the Barin ABC 50/C Crawler
Ease of Use
It allows under bridge tasks to be completed quickly, as the personnel can be under the bridge working within minutes of their arrival at the jobsite.
The risk associated with use of under bridge access platforms is very minimal. The ABC 50/C comes with multiple built-in safety features that protect personnel using the platform.
Since our platform enables your personnel to complete tasks quickly, you can be able to carry out more tasks in less time, which translates to more money at the end of the day.
Using Our Under Bridge Platform Units
You can hire our ABC 50/C Crawler for all types of under-bridge projects:
- Inspections and repairs
- Painting and sandblasting
- General maintenance
- Replacement and maintenance of bearings
- Installation and maintenance of lights, pipe, and cables
If your job requires you to carry out routine cleaning, repair, or maintenance of roadway or railroad bridges, you already know that working on – and under – bridges involves a high level of risk. Inability to reach critical areas under a bridge, or mistakes made due to limited access, can create costly delays.
In addition, using inappropriate methods or equipment to access the underside of bridges and bridge structural elements can create safety issues. There is only one way to make certain that your under bridge project is complete on schedule and with the safest method available, and that is by using under bridge access platforms and leaving scaffolds, ladders, and ropes behind.
And this is why you need Under Bridge Platforms, your trusted source for under bridge inspection units.
