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.
We attach our standard 12.6’ (3.8m) screed head to a boom that reaches 18’ (5.5m), which means you cover 220 sq. ft/pass (20.44m²) resulting in screed rates up to 7,000 sq. ft./hour (650m²) or more depending upon site variables. Screed accuracy (FF/FL) is world class!

HIGH PERFORMANCE SCREED HEADUpgrade to the most advanced screed head ever introduced to the industry. This head features a reinforced frame for increased rigidity and includes Ligchine’s oversized, high speed, extra flighting AUGER for superb results. User simplified adjustments insure faster resets for changes in mix, improved handling of oversized aggregate, and increased consolidation due to a full-length vibration system. Available in varying lengths to match up to your choice of ScreedSaver machine.
PAVER/SUPERFLAT COMBO SCREED HEAD
This screed head is the industry’s first combination paving and superflat screed head. We’ve added a powered roller to our standard Superflat screed head that includes a plow, long wear double flight auger and a vibrating finish blade.
Powder coat finish reduces cleanup time. With the roller added, you can handle any slump or mix no matter how thick or sticky the additives have made it.
A removable finish blade also means that you can screed pervious concrete with this versatile head.
