Somero Enterprises, Inc. Donates Somero® S-485 Laser Screed® Machine For CIM Auction At World of Concrete
The Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program is pleased to announce that Somero Enterprises, Inc. has donated a Somero® S-485 Laser Screed® Machine to the CIM Auction At World of Concrete
The Somero S-485 Laser Screed® is incredibly easy to operate and a very powerful 4-wheel drive machine. It is very multi-functional as well as capable of fine grading most subbase materials, raking concrete level, or for screeding of concrete to very high floor levelness standards, including world record setting and Golden Trowel® Award winning performance. Its lightweight design allows for utilization either on grade or on most decks (level or cambered), ice rinks, or chaired mesh or rebar. Add the optional 3D Profiler System and greatly expand your opportunities.
“If you want high F-numbers and can’t get a large Somero machine in there, you have to use their small Laser Screeds®. The S-485 is state of the art. It is so essential every concrete contractor should own one or more!”
Steve Lloyd
Industry renowned flat floor finishing expert who purchased his S-485 at a previous CIM Auction

  • Leveling control system which is able to operate in laser, 3D, or sonic mode.
