Ligchine re-invented the mega sized screed machine in 2016 when it introduced the feature-loaded ScreedSaver BOSS 240 machine. The BOSS 240 is the world’s largest boom operated screed, and it includes a zero turn drive system. Features include: hydraulic parallel side shifting for stickup avoidance; our patent-pending zero turn drive system that allows BOTH the upper boom frame AND the lower drive frame to independently spin 360°; our automated concrete additive spray bar system integrated into the screed head; onboard color touchscreen full diagnostic display, Kubota’s newest 57hp gas engine (optional LP Gas or Diesel engine options); an on-board pressure washer and a high intensity surround LED lighting system.
We attach our standard 13.5’ (4.12m) screed head to a boom that reaches 18’ (5.5m), which means you cover 240 sq. ft./pass (22.3m²) resulting in screed rates up to 10,000 sq. ft./hour (929m²) or more depending upon site variables. Screed accuracy (FF/FL) is world class!

Screed Head Options
High Performance Screed Head
Upgrade 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.
STANDARD SCREED HEAD
This screed head measures 12′ (3.6m) in length and utilizes all of Ligchine’s classic paver screed head features into a new robust A-frame style assembly. A redesigned plow helps protect auger and roller bearings from excessive concrete greatly enhancing bearing life. The concrete additive spray bar can be interchanged between the standard screed head and the paver screed head in a matter of minutes.
