DeWalt DC530KA

Here is a quick six step guide to repair your concrete with a  DeWalt Heavy-Duty 18V Cordless Pencil Vibrator DC530KA. Begin preparation by procuring the following list of needed supplies and materials; DeWalt DC530KA, a concrete chisel, concrete mix, a bucket , a finish trowel, safety goggles, and gloves.

Step One

Begin by removing any loose concrete in the area you have chosen to patch, then tap a concrete chisel into the surrounding concrete of the chosen area.

Step Two

First Put on your safety goggles and gloves then start mixing the concrete according to the directions on the packaging, mixing in small batches as you need it.

Step Three

Pour the prepared concrete onto the area you have chosen to patch. Note that if the area is more than three feet deep, you will need to make more than one pour. Mix only enough concrete for each pour at a time.

Step Four

 The vibration area is calculated at four times the diameter of the pencil vibrators head. For example if you are using the DeWalt Pencil Vibrator DC530KA you are using a head that is about 2 inch in diameter, making the field of action about eight inches. Once you have your area ready, place the DeWalt DC530KA’s head six inches from the last placement, this ensures that a larger patch has placement fields that overlap.

Step Five

Stop the vibrating once there is no longer large sized bubbles on the concrete. You will notice the concrete takes on a differing sheen or the tone of the vibrator changes about the same time the large bubbles are gone. This should be repeated for overlapping sections.

Step Six

Now incorporate the trowel, to smooth, and the edger to establish defined lines, then allow the concrete to harden.

 The DeWalt Heavy-Duty 18V Cordless Pencil Vibrator DC530KA has a 1-1/8″ diameter and performs at 14,000 vibrations per minute. It comes complete with a carrying bag, XRP 18 Volt batteries, a charger, and a carrying bag for your batteries and charger.
