Battery powered re-bar tyers? Battery powered caulking guns? What's the world coming to. :blink: I just use the old wood handled one.

I didn't know anyone but MAX made them; a precast company near my old home used the cordless tiers almost exclusivly, very convinient when you have to tie bar in an awkard position.

I have tried rebar tier on borrowing them and had nothing but problems, they work great if there is no dirt around, little bit of dirt and your cleaning it.

It is easier for me to wrap wire and tie as needed. Another thing to keep in mind, the rebar tier doesn't get the bar that tight.

about them being heavy : i looked at my buddys max and its really light. but its price is 3 grand to (i think).
about the glue gun there's an idea.
about them not being to tight.. i saw a guy take two foot long pieces of rear and tied one end and put a bolt in between the 2 pieces and the tier pulled it toghether.
