by Add more muscle to your crew while reducing man-hours! ® EFFORTLESS LASER GUIDED RAKING
S.O.D. Driving into position 1-Man Raking Crew With 1 individual, rake more concrete in less time with no manual labor
S.O.D. Driving into position No more physical effort raking concrete Pushes or pulls large piles of concrete effortlessly
S.O.D. Driving into position Plow maintains an even height of concrete Grade is constantly maintained by laser, even on sloped pours.
Why should you consider a PowerRake ® ? Yesterday you were raking concrete this way... Hard, physical, work Especially in stiff slump concrete Requires plenty of strong men Labor intensive Prone to injury and Work Comp claims
Tomorrow you could be raking concrete this way... Effortless Much FASTER Much FLATTER due to laser accuracy Significantly FEWER men and man-hours Virtually eliminate jobsite injuries Better EFFICIENCY improves PROFITS One Man Riding on Machine does the work of a whole raking crew, regardless of slump!
S.O.D. Driving into position - Quick Set Up - Easy Operation - Fast Learning Curve - Faster Productivity - Reduces Fatigue and Injuries - Reduce Labor by 2-3 men or more - Increased Floor Levelness Quality - Quick Tear Down and Cleaning FEATURES

S.O.D. Driving into position Problems with spreading concrete… - Concrete, by its nature is heavy (1 cubic foot weights approx. 148 pounds). - Repetitive, awkward, high force motions may eventually lead to lower back, shoulder, or wrist fatigue, pain, and / or injury. SAFETY CONCERNS The PowerRake ® virtually eliminates all injuries, tripping, or falls related to raking concrete. How does good body position affect productivity? - Working in a neutral body position is less tiring, less fatiguing, and safer. - Less tired workers means more productivity. - 5% increase in productivity equals 24 minutes per 8 hr day, yields 50% more profitability * * Scott Humrickhouse, Director of FMI As referenced by NIOSH Body Positioning Tip Sheet sponsored by CPWR, produced by Build It Smart, LSHFNA, LIUNA, AGC of Washington, Univ. of Washington, Western Washington Cement Masons Training Program and the StewartPrezant Ergonomics Group.
