Remote vibrations
Minnich Manufacturing showcased its Control Speed Vibrator this year at World of Concrete in Las Vegas, Nev. The CSV is Minnich’s latest concrete vibrator. The CVS is lightweight with a durable electric flex shaft for concrete that’s controlled through Bluetooth and the Minnich app through iOS and Android. The vibrator’s 15-amp (115-volt) universal motor lets operators reach speeds of 6,000, 8,000, 20,500 and an open speed. Once the speed is chosen, the vibrator will maintain that speed even as the concrete load changes. The universal motor drives a full line of Minnich shafts and heads and comes with a quick disconnect that adapts to the vibrators of many manufacturers.

Even lighter
Wacker Neuson’s battery-powered backpack vibrator has been redesigned to reduce the overall weight making it even more comfortable and convenient for the operator. The ACBe backpack concrete vibrator is a portable, cordless backpack concrete vibration system that provides excellent consolidation of thick concrete with and without reinforcing steel.  Because of the portability, the system is ideal for use anywhere as there is no need for additional power while providing a quiet, zero-emission option for indoor and outdoor use. The three-part modular system consists of the backpack with integrated converter, removable/replaceable battery and internal vibrator. The backpack itself was engineered by a leading hiking backpack company that understands the need for ergonomic comfort. It is fully adjustable for varying heights, chest, shoulder and waist sizes. The weight of the new backpack has been reduced by 40 percent and weighs in at only 9.3 pounds. (With the battery inserted the unit weighs under 30 pounds.) The lightweight fabric, padded shoulders and even weight distribution allow for extended working periods.  The vibrator shaft connects to the bottom centre of backpack that allows for easy left-hand or right-hand operation. The heart of the ACBe backpack vibrator is Wacker Neuson’s BP1000 lithium-ion battery, which is the exact same battery that powers the company’s zero-emission battery rammers and vibratory plates. The battery is easily inserted into the converter backpack without the need for any special tools and, because there is no cord, the operator has flexibility and mobility to move around the job site. By running on battery power, as opposed to a gasoline engine, the operator is no longer exposed to heat, exhaust fumes and engine noise. The modular vibration system allows for variety of internal head diameter and shaft lengths to connect to the backpack. Because the backpack includes the integrated converter, once the vibrator shaft and head are connected, the vibrator provides high cycle/high frequency performance for effective concrete consolidation on construction sites with vertical structures, columns, foundations, walls, and thick slabs. The nine combinations include head diameters of 1.5, 1.8 and 2.3 inches and shaft lengths of five, 10 and 16 feet. Wacker Neuson’s maintenance-free battery operated equipment is designed for convenient, easy operation. 

Half-second per tie
As the original inventors of the battery-operated rebar tying tool, the latest TwinTier series are the most advanced rebar tying tools Max has to offer to concrete contractors today. Utilizing many new technologies that have never been incorporated in previous models, TwinTiers tie at approximately ½ second per tie, reducing the time spent on repetitive snap tying to complete each jobsite faster. Equipped with a five-amp lithium-ion battery, the RB441T is able to tie 5,000 ties before needing to recharge. Each spool of Max TW1061T series tie wire can tie up to 265 ties (when tying #3 by #3 rebar) before needing to reload. With the newly added wire pull-back mechanism, each TwinTier tie only dispenses as much wire as needed for each rebar combination, cutting down unnecessary wire waste and making stronger ties compared to older rebar tying tools. Each wire tie tip is also pushed down automatically due to the wire bending mechanism of the TwinTier to allow shallow concrete pours. The RB441T weighs only 5.6 pounds and the single hand operation of the tool can give operators the ability to use their second hand to adjust rebar in place or support the weight of their back while bending over to tie flatwork. Max offers a full line of TwinTiers depending on the type of rebar tying job at hand. The RB611T has a large tying capacity, tying up to #9 by #10 rebar and for massive flat-work jobsites. The RB401T-E stand up TwinTier allows the operator to stand up and tie rebar without bending their back or pulling the trigger. This battery-operated stand-up rebar tying tool can reduce the risk of back strain as well.
