During the summer of 2018, Chad Redlinger, Northern Regional Territory Manager from Ligchine had offered to give a demonstration on the ScreedSaver Max 200. Present at the demo was Winkler Concrete General Manager, Ron Krahn, who had started discussions about purchasing a laser-guided screed.

By August 2018, Winkler Concrete had finalized the purchase of the ScreedSaver Max 200 and Redlinger provided training to the Winkler team on how to operate the laser-guided screed machine.

The ScreedSaver Max 200 was a big reasong Winkler Concrete won a job for a potato storage facility parking lot in Winkler, Manitoba, Canada. Krahn says there were several competing bids for the project.

“Our ScreedSaver Max 200 was a very influential reason Winkler Concrete got this job,” Arthur Krahn, batch operator at Winkler Concrete, says. “Our laser-guided screed allowed one of our contractors to complete the job at a substantially lower cost due to the labor savings. We completed this job in one-third the time with half the crew that this particular contractor would typically use for a parking lot pour such as this.”

Winkler Concrete provided three services for this parking lot placement: laser-guided screeding, concrete pumping and concrete delivery.

While on the job, Arthur Krahn took a picture of the work being done and submitted it for the “Concrete Works Hard & So Do You Job Site Photo Contest.” The photo won the contest.

Throughout the month of November, the winning photo will be highlighted on the Canadian Concrete Expo website, https://canadianconcreteexpo.com/concrete-works-hard/.
