Our Grind & Shine workshops put a shine on everyone’s faces

Concrete Trowel

Visitors enjoyed lessons with the latest concrete trowel technology

Last week we arranged two one-day ‘Grinding & Shine’ workshops for contractors who wished to learn more about the latest Grind & Shine techniques and in particular for those who were keen to try out the latest Ride On Concrete Trowel technology for themselves. Before the event we have to admit that we were a little uncertain how many people and companies would be interested in attending them. Not that we needed to be worried. Both Grind & Shine workshops were exceptionally well attended and we were delighted to welcome visitors from all parts of the UK and even people who had traveled from different European countries in order to catch up on what’s new and to try out the latest concrete trowel innovations for themselves.

The first part of each day was taken up with in-depth presentations, during which our experts went into great detail as they carefully discussed all the most recent developments in concrete finishing techniques.

Then it was time for practical demonstrations that highlighted just how concrete trowel technology has moved on in recent years. The two impressive machines we featured were the JWN24HTCSL 36-inch Ride On Power Trowel and the HHXDFS5 46-inch Ride On Power trowel. We think it is fair to say that everyone who attended either of the one-day Grind & Shine sessions was mightily impressed by what they saw.

After a relaxing lunch that allowed everyone to mingle and discuss what they had seen and learned, we gave everyone that opportunity to try out the concrete finishing machines for themselves. We have to say that for most people this was the most enjoyable and educational part of the Grind & Shine workshops because they were able to discover just how simple – and effective – these Ride On Power Trowel machines really were and they quickly appreciated how much of a benefit they could bring to their own businesses in terms of productivity… and profitability.

Following the two one-day Grind & Shine workshops we received lots of messages thanking us for the effort and enthusiasm we put into the events. We even saw some very complimentary tweets from several others, including Amodeo Ltd, the Cardiff based concrete flooring contractors: 

Excellent demo and training day @MultiquipUK today

Good Vibrations

Vibration Poker

Our range of concrete vibration poker tools helps you achieve correct consolidation every time

One of the biggest causes of concrete failure is poor consolidation. But that really does not have to be a problem because with our range of vibration poker tools it becomes very easy and very effective to ensure that the correct level of consolidation is achieved consistently and within the shortest period of time.

Our highly recommended range of concrete vibration poker equipment is designed to work in medium to high-slump concrete and generally speaking typical applications include small pours, slabs, driveways, stem walls and footings.

The problem of poor consolidation is that immediately after placement concrete typically contains up to 20 per cent entrapped air, although this does vary according to the type of mix, the slump, placement method, form size and the amount of reinforcing steel.

Concrete vibration, using the most appropriate vibration poker will dramatically improve the compression strength of the concrete in two distinct ways – firstly by moving concrete particles and secondly by removing trapped air.

At Multiquip our Concrete Accessories range offers an excellent selection of vibration poker options including a choice of petrol, electric and pneumatic drives.

All of these are extremely effective and come equipped with long, flexible hose linking the power source to the vibration poker, therefore making it extremely easy and manageable for you to reach all areas of the concrete, even into the most remote corners, in order to ensure you consistently attain the optimum consolidation levels.

 We have numerous options available and our range includes:

High Frequency pokers

High Frequency Poker

Electric Pokers

Electric Poker

Petrol and Backpack Pokers

Back Pack Poker

Each tool within these ranges has its own specific benefits and advantages and we will be pleased to discuss with you the most appropriate option for your type of work profile.  Whichever you choose though, you can rely on the fact that each and everyone has been used and has been fully approved by innumerable concrete contractors all around the world and they are all highly recommended for their reliability, rugged construction, excellent value for money and above all for the effective results they produce.

Full technical details, prices, parts and personally prepared maintenance plans are readily available by contacting our office and in order to assist you in your decision we are pleased to provide the highly informative Concrete Vibration Handbook
