Chicago Pneumatic has recently launched its comprehensive new concrete equipment range. In applications from walls to floor slabs, the rangehas products to cover every step of the job, from vibration and levelling to finishing and cutting.
"We're excited about this new range because it gives our customers a great opportunity to improve productivity throughout their concrete projects. Productivity gains arise because the operator can always find the right tool for the job, whether it's vibrating, levelling, finishing or cutting.: said Andrew Cope, Vice President Business Development, Chicago Pneumatic.
The new durable and user-friendly VPM mechanical pokers provide excellent choices for mid-sized construction sites using medium-to-high slump concrete. VPE electric pokers are ideal where low noise, low maintenance, light pokers are required. They offer fast start-up, a wide action radius and rapid acceleration for medium-to-highslump concrete. For jobs of any size with low-to-high-slump concrete requiring high-speed vibration, the VPP pneumatic poker range delivers high-performance centrifugal force. With compressed-air cooling and low maintenance, these pokers are highly dependable even in the most remote locations.
In addition to pokers, the new concrete product line includes walk-behind screeds that provide a consistent, even surface without any guide or supporting tube. Equipped with reliable Honda® engines, they offer reduced hand-arm vibration, with an easily-accessible ignition switch and throttle control for quick adjustments. The LBG 1200 hand-held screed provides surface vibration only; it is suitable for slabs of all types and concrete of all consistencies. Recommended for smaller slabs and medium-to-lowslump concrete, the LBG 800 bull float screed provides deeper vibration and single-step levelling.
