The Bridgemaster-Art-B-4 features a convenient double-telescopic primary boom that allows it to be stowed securely and compactly for transit and over-the-road travel. The articulating boom Bucket Mount provides impressively high up-reach for accessing behind fascia beams.
This reach allows for close-up, hands-on accessibility, and easy bucket threading for tight through-truss access. While some under bridge access units are either too large for easy access, or too small for the reach required, the Bridgemaster-Art-B-4 provides just the right fit for many jobs.
This versatile under bridge inspection unit doesn’t require a large workspace profile, yet it can still provide an under bridge reach of up to 55 feet. This unit features a right-hand deployment and typically only requires a minimal shoulder closure for safe operation.
Working With Our Bridgemaster-Art-B-4 Under Bridge Unit
With right-side only deployment and no outriggers required, this vehicle offers a minimized traffic lane footprint. The machine can extend a platform 55 feet under a bridge and features four booms.
The first can move 17 feet and the second boom can reach under girders as deep as 21-feet. The third can reach to the centerline of a 116-foot wide bridge deck. The fourth boom can place a 3-man bucket underneath 20-foot girders and up between the girders.
“The Bridgemaster provides us with the ability to access virtually every square inch of the super- and substructure with only minimal traffic impacts. The vehicle also has the versatility to be operated from beneath the structure as a relatively flexible lift device.” – Marc S. Grunert, P.E., Principal Bridge Design Engineer, Nevada Department of Transportation

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.
