Looking At Buying A Power Screed. Anyone Have Experience With Them?

So I think I'm going to get a power screed like a vibra stike or something similar. I've been in the concrete business for almost 25 years and think it would make my life easier so I'm going to buy one. Problem is they're not very popular around here and not many places even rent them. Anyone have a lot of experience with these things and tried different ones? Obviously, I'd like to buy the best one.

I replied to your PM, but the long and short of is that out of the ones I have used, I like the Silver Beauty the best by far for placing floors.

Pair it with a good Spectra Laser for your pads and you'll be speeding up your placement time for sure.
