Re: Anyone Used One Of These?

I've tried a few times to get a demo of one of these, never had any luck.

Anyone else get a shot at trying one out?

Considering this thread was started in '09, I would say the screed has some problems or short comings. I was interested at one time, but I have still to hear of anyone using one, etc. So apparently there must be a problem with the tool. The Marshalltown rep was providing some input at that time, but obviously they do not want to sell them very much?

Wonder if Joasis ever received his demo and how that worked out?

Re: Anyone Used One Of These?

They called me a few times, and since I don't do concrete any longer, meaning I farm all of mine out, I wasn't interested. I know the rep was going to bring one out to use, but now I don't remember where we were at the time.

In the leaner model of contracting that I practice now, I don't have employees as such, and farm out all trade work.

It is a great idea, but would have to see it in action.
