Ligchine International™ and Somero Enterprises® both offer Mega Line Boom operated screeds that can place massive amounts of concrete, perfectly level, in very little time. Somero® has retained a near monopoly on Mega sized boom screeds for many years producing them as various models including the S-160, S-240, SXP and currently the S-22E.
The BOSS 240 screed runs side by side with the Somero® S-22E. Both machines screed 240 square feet (22.3m2) per pass with their standard screed heads, and both Ligchine™ and Somero® offer a convenient 360° hydraulic boom rotation. However, that is where the similarities end. The BOSS 240 is loaded with design features never before seen on a Mega screed including the following:
Zero turn drive system – Push a button and you control a 360° hydraulic zero turn drive system. Drive in any direction. Work your way out of an enclosed jobsite in half the time with the total agility of zero turn functionality.
Horizontal side shift – In the past when you approached a stickup you could circle around it leaving a trail of augered concrete to touch up later. With the BOSS 240 you can side shift right or left to clear the obstacle and minimize the concrete piling.
Built-in additive spray system – Standard on the BOSS is a liquid additive spray bar on the screed head with an on-board holding tank and automatic On/OFF activation. Batch plant shuts down – apply retarders. Eliminate the hand labor of spraying on hardeners while you screed.
Engine options – You now have the option of an engine that is best for your use. BOSS ships standard with Kubota’s newest 57hp Gas engine. Optionally, we can equip your machine with a Kubota LP Gas system for operating in enclosed spaces, or a traditional Kubota Diesel engine.
