At McClain & Co., Inc., we pride ourselves on delivering state-of-the-art equipment for bridge inspections and access. Our comprehensive inventory includes a diverse range of vehicles, from versatile bucket trucks and vans to robust aerial work platforms and truck-mounted units capable of extending over 70 feet beneath bridges.

Designed for ease of use, adaptability, and superior safety, our selection of under bridge access, hi-rail, and aerial work platforms stands as the optimal solution for your upcoming infrastructure projects.

We provide full-service rental packages for our under bridge bucket and platform vehicles, complete with skilled operators for both the topside and under bridge operations, ensuring smooth navigation and operation of the bucket or platform during bridge inspections.

For seasoned professionals in engineering and construction who opt for self-navigation during under bridge tasks, McClain and Company offers tailored rental plans that align with your expertise and adhere to your firm’s insurance policies.

Under Bridge Bucket Vehicles

McClain & Co., Inc. offers several under bridge access bucket vehicles (SNOOPERs®) that can provide safe, stable, and highly versatile work platforms for bridge inspection teams. The buckets used provide capacity for a 2-man combined 600 pound team when using a split bucket or a 3-man bucket. Our A75s can carry up to 700 pounds in their 3-person bucket. Our platforms have a much wider capacity range from 600 pounds for our smaller platforms to 2200 pounds for our largest platforms.

Our truck-mounted under bridge access bucket unit rentals range from an agile 30 foot unit to a massive unit that can provide horizontal access underneath bridge decks of up to 75 feet. These bucket units are particularly useful for accessing complex bridge structures that may not be accessible to larger and longer work platforms.

These types of equipment feature work platforms of various sizes to accommodate inspection teams. However, they are especially useful for bridge maintenance, repairs, and cleaning projects, with some platforms providing a capacity of over 2,000 pounds.

In many areas where highway bridges are less than 20 or 30 feet above a roadway, our units can also be employed to provide under bridge access for inspections and so forth.

Aerial Work Platforms

Similar to bucket trucks or vans, these vehicles feature work platforms that can accommodate workers as well as tools and materials. They can be put into use for bridge inspections on smaller structures in the same way that bucket trucks can, but also for more involved maintenance and repair projects.
