When we were in our peak of concrete work and the time came to screed we were usually disappointed with the tools we had to do this with and somehow always used the handy 2by4 cut to length, even with our $1800 power screed sitting in the truck, It’s not that the power screed was a bad tool…it was and is a great tool except for the times when you don’t need to vibrate, then you have an anchor. We love the fact you can screed with or without a vibrating heavy motor with ApeArms. ApeArms allow you to work in your “Natural” position. This is a safer way to work, an easier way to work and preferred way to work. You will love what we’ve done.
Screed is a word with multiple uses inside and outside the concrete industry, with very broad ranges of meaning. But specific to this discussion, screed means a concrete tool used to strike off uncured concrete.
There are several types of screed tools, with varying levels of complexity and sophistication. The most basic screed tool is a readily-available, inexpensive, and simple wood 2×4 that is pulled across the surface of wet concrete to smooth it out before final finishing. Slightly more advanced are screeds constructed of aluminum or magnesium. Although these types offer a bit more precision and durability than their wooded counterparts, both options are physically demanding, and unfortunately the most commonly-used methods to date.
Beyond simple hand screed tools, there are a host of other tool options that usually have their own place in a concrete contractor’s tool arsenal. Each option needs to be weighed against the project scope, type of concrete mix, and desired finishing quality.
Seaco Solutions has developed the perfect addition to the simple and laborious wood or metal hand screed method, providing ultimate comfort and control while allowing the user to stand during the entire screed process. We proudly introduce to you the ApeArms Screed tool, the ultimate solution to the age-old problem of concrete finishing. Our amazing tool offers you the ability to do your job faster with better results, with far more control than ever before.
Apearms will have holes to either screw the screed board into a fixed position or have a couple of optional holes for a simple duplex nail to be used in the event you need a quick fix.
Apearms do not have a vibrating motor that “needs” to be attached, It does however have an option for a vibe motor when needed.
Apearms are ultra-light, weighing in at close to only 5lbs combined for the set without a screed board.
Apearms compound your efforts making the heavy load of concrete moving much less laborious.
Apearms allow two workers to screed from outside of the forms in the event its ever needed.
Apearms offer more control, typically when you get away from your screed board you start to lose power at every inch you move away from the screed board, well apearms actually give you more control when you start to move to a standing position.
Apearms features important multiple configuration options….we still havent counted them all. Two man operation, one man operation, vibe or not, short or long or use the telescopic adjustment for in between, two workers outside the forms, one long one short etc.
Apearms lowest setting still has great added power and control for the ones who just need to bend.
Apearms are ergonomical and have a great deal of comfort, even under pressure.
Apearms will certainly be safer, faster and all this comes while being affordable.
Apearms has a built in lifting placement control backstrap for when the tool is lifted, and to place it in a specific spot without it dropping and having to swing it into place.
