MultiQuip 180 Hz High-cycle Concrete Vibrator w/2.375″ head, 20 ft hose, 33 ft cord FXA60A6

August 13, 2012

One needs only to Google the words “concrete vibrator” to find a whirlwind of controversy surrounding the question, “does one need a concrete vibrator for concrete jobs?” This hotly debated subject centers around one point in general; does the concrete vibrator actually strengthen the concrete or not? Many sound-offs discuss the concrete vibrator as a must have. They assert that the concrete vibrator perfects the surface as well as provides a better stronger wall in an easier and quicker application. The concrete vibrator also gives you certain amenities that sticking a rebar in the middle cannot, such as a creamy smooth finish without the “bug holes” or “honeycomb”, which are also known as air pockets that usually develop once the concrete dries. A concrete vibrator not only rids the poured concrete of air holes, but also consolidates the cold joints between lifts. For example, in the instance where your work site has a big pour and requires you to pour the top of your wall 45 minutes after the bottom, which usually creates a weak place referred to as a cold joint. This problem however, can be fixed with the concrete vibrator by using the vibrator to re-liquify while the lower lift is still somewhat fluid. This will blend with the other lift and bond the two ridding you of the weak cold joint.
