McClain and Company Inc.

If your business involves the inspection, repair, and maintenance of highway bridges, then you understand and appreciate the value of reliable and versatile underbridge and aerial access vehicles and equipment.

At McClain and Company, we know that so much more than productivity rests on the safety, reliability, and accessibility of our equipment. That is one reason we ensure that all our Underbridge Inspection Unit (UBIU) drivers/operators are certified and licensed in compliance with the new ANSI A92 Suite of Standards.

McClain and Company is Here to Serve You and Your Project

Our extensive equipment rental fleet options range from an agile bucket van with a 29 foot boom, to an Aspen Aerials A-75 Underbridge inspection truck that boasts an impressive horizontal reach of up to 75 feet, while lowering a bucket as much as 85 feet from a bridge deck.

Helping to ensure successfully completed projects while maintaining safety is our mission. That’s because we know you rely on us to equip you with the tools you need to make that happen. At McClain and Company, we also know that we have the expertise and equipment to meet your needs.

Underbridge Inspection Unit Rental (Bridge Inspection Truck)

McClain and Company maintains a large fleet of underbridge inspection unit rental vehicles, also known as a bridge inspection truck. We have several vehicles offering horizontal underbridge reach ranging from 24 feet to just under 69 feet. With over half a dozen track- and trailer-mounted platform units to choose from, finding the right “fit” for your project’s requirements and limitations is easy.

When the work requires several workers in place under a bridge deck, underbridge track- or trailer-mounted platform equipment is essential. Safety, versatility, and stability all help to ensure the work is done efficiently and cost-effectively.

Bucket Truck Rental

In addition to our underbridge platform units, McClain and Company offers a choice of different high-end bucket van and bucket truck rental units. For less demanding jobs, we have a smaller unit that features a one-man bucket capacity and a maximum work height boom of 34 feet.

On the other end of the scale, our largest bucket truck rental unit features a boom that can take the two-man, 700 pound capacity bucket up to 60 feet with a “Maximum Reach Non-Overcenter” of just over 43 feet.

Utility Truck Rental

When it comes to utility truck rental and aerial boom lifts, McClain and Company offers a 50 foot “sign” truck that can provide a 56 foot working height for a 900 pound capacity platform.

Need a bit more reach? No worries! We also have a 70 foot version that has the ability to place a similar platform with a capacity of 900 pounds up to a maximum of 75 feet of work height. And, while we categorize these as “Sign Truck Rental” vehicles they can be employed for a variety of work that requires material handling and multiple workers being safely placed at height.

Hi-Rail Truck Rental

It’s not always about highway bridges and vehicle traffic. In addition, Hi-Rail underbridge inspection trucks and Hi-Rail bucket trucks are needed for inspections and repairs of Class I Railroad and Shortline Railroad bridges.

Our selection of Hi-Rail truck rental bucket trucks are designed for easy access to railroad bridge overhead structural components. They range from units providing a 46 foot work height and a bucket capacity of 1,000 pounds, to units that can raise a two-man bucket up to a 66 foot work height.

Snooper™ Truck Rental

The famed Snooper™ bucket trucks became so popular and common during the 1960s and 1970s that the name has become practically a generic name for any underbridge inspection and maintenance truck, regardless of the make.

For our Snooper™ Truck rental, we are proud to offer a 40′ Paxton-Mitchell Underbridge Bucket Snooper™ Truck with a horizontal reach of 40 feet with a two-man bucket. In addition, we have a 60 foot version that can extend a three-man, 600 pound capacity bucket either 55 feet or 60 feet, depending on the unit.

McClain and Company Rentals Means Much More Than Bridge Inspection Trucks

For construction projects where earthmoving is required, we still have you covered. Sometimes referred to as a skip loader, scoop loader, or even a bucket loader, the Komatsu WA380 Wheel Loader brings a bucket capacity of between 3.5 to 4.3 cubic yards.

We also provide Traffic Control Safety Services and Equipment rentals that include Track-Mounted Attenuators as well as trailered devices such as:

  • Arrow Boards
  • Light Towers
  •  Message Signs

In addition, we provide temporary traffic control (TTC) equipment including:

  •  Cones
  •  Barricades
  • Channelizing devices
