Bridging the World Cup
By Euan Youdale06 May 2014
Brazilian rental company Rentalvale Equipment, based in Sao Paulo, has put one of its Barin under bridge inspection units out to work on a new road bridge leading to FIFA World Cup stadium Arena Sao Paulo.
The ABC 60/L has a maximum underbridge working length of 6 m and is mounted on a 2-axle Iveco Daily 70C16 truck. The unit is made of aluminium and has a platform width of 1 m, with a 300 kg capacity.
The machines can negotiate sidewalks up to 1.7 m wide and 2 m high wind barriers and can work parallel to the bridge axis with an underbridge rotation of 135°.
During road operations, the ABC 60/L occupies one lane of traffic, allowing the second lane to flow.
