WHY CHOOSE THE MAX RB TOOLS
SAVE TIME, SAVE MONEY, INCREASE SAFETY AND PRODUCTIVITY.
MAX manufacturers a line of battery-operated rebar (“RB”) tools designed to make reinforcing ironworkers safer and more efficient at their jobs. MAX’s line of RB tools includes battery powered tiers that will tie mesh up to #3x 3# rebar all the way up to a tier that will tie #8 x #9 rebar. MAX also manufacturers a rebar cutter that can cut up to a #5 rebar. Below are some of the benefits that MAX RB tools offer.
The MAX RE-BAR-TIER is conservatively 5 times faster than hand tying. With an approximate tying speed of less than 1 sec. MAX RE-BAR-TIERs reduce the time spent tying, consequently reducing the man hours necessary to complete a job.
ONE HANDED OPERATION.
MAX RE-BAR-TIERs can be operated using a single hand. This gives reinforcing workers the ability to use their second hand to hold rebar in place, hold several pieces together, or support the weight of their back while bending over to tie flatwork.
The repetitive motion used in manually tying rebar predisposes reinforcing ironworkers to the risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders to upper extremities (i.e. wrists, hands, fingers, and shoulders) and lower extremities (i.e. knees, ankles, feet and back). A study conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) concluded that the use of battery powered tiers reduces the risk of developing hand, wrist or elbow disorders. The study also found that using battery powered tiers with an extension arm helped to reduce the risk of sustaining back injuries. For detailed information on health benefits please see the CSAO Safety Report or NIOSH HEALTH HAZARD EVALUATION REPORT(HETA #2003-0146-2976).
