Created specifically for paver owners, operators, service technicians and inspectors, the service school strikes a balance between classroom instruction and hands-on field demonstrations.
Terex Roadbuilding has announced two spring paving service school dates for Terex Bid-Well automatic roller pavers and workbridges. The two-day training sessions are scheduled for April 26 and April 27, and May 2 and May 3. The classes will be held in Sioux Falls and Canton, S.D.
Created specifically for paver owners, operators, service technicians and inspectors, the service school strikes a balance between classroom instruction and hands-on field demonstrations. The classes offer in-depth discussion for paver and workbridge set-up, operation and service, and are taught by seasoned service and field instructors, according to Terex.
“Students will learn how to spec and set up our pavers for some of the most complex paving applications, and we cover what options are available to improve paving efficiency,” said Dean Johnson, service manager of Terex Bid-Well. “We also discuss the symptoms of machine aging, what to look for and how to diagnose and correct issues.”
The first day features in-class discussion and instruction at the Best Western Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center in Sioux Falls, S.D. The series of lectures include: bridge, airport, highway and slope paving techniques; machine set-up; texture and curing; controller adjustment and troubleshooting; skewed deck paving; screed rail and chair set-up; and thin-bonded overlays.
“We have designed the classes for contractor interaction with instructors and each other,” said Aron Sweeney, service school coordinator.
Day two includes a shuttle to Canton for hands-on paving demonstrations with Terex Bid-Well pavers, where students put their classroom training into practice. Instructors show the students proper paver set-up and operation for standard as well as skewed pours. The final highlight of the day is a guided tour of the new 80,000 cu. ft. Terex Bid-Well office and manufacturing facility.
