Feb. 21, 2012, Canton, S.D.,– Mark your calendars. Terex Roadbuilding announces two spring paving service school dates for Terex® Bid-Well automatic roller pavers and workbridges. The two-day training sessions are scheduled for Thursday, April 26 and Friday, April 27, and Wednesday, May 2 and Thursday, May 3. The classes will be held in Sioux Falls and Canton, S.D.

Service School 

 

Created specifically for paver owners, operators, service technicians and inspectors, the service school strikes the right 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.

“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,” says Dean Johnson, service manager for 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,” says 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 ft2 Terex Bid-Well office and manufacturing facility.
