If you’ve even mixed concrete, morter, leveling compound, plaster or any dry bagged products you have probably been on the inside of a large silica dust cloud, it was nearly impossible to avoid with traditional methods. The new OSHA Silica Dust Rules, Table 1 applications don’t provide an exemption for mixing with bagged goods because staying under 50 PEL in this application has been very very challenging to do safely.
The CS Unitec Eibenstock TwinMix 1800 ($1584) is the first solution we’ve seen that virtually eliminates visible dust from this process for mixing mortar, leveler, plaster and other bag goods. It does need to be attached to a vacuum CS1445 H ($599) or similar HEPA vac, not included. What we like most about this entire setup is that it actually improves efficiency on the job, as you can see in the video above, the cart easily detaches from the mixing station to get right where needed and easily pours. The system allows for continuous use with multiple carts going in succession, as we look to make these products safer for workers it is essential to see them become more efficient as well so they become welcome changes for the users.

CS Unitec has engineered a new Long-Reach Drywall Sander ELS 225.1 ($965, system with Vacuum) that prepares walls and ceiling seams that delivers flawless results. With this new system, users can create a smoother finish, quicker and cleaner that comparable products. In addition, this new system makes it easier, approximately 60% easier and less effort prior to painting, plastering and/or decorating. Not only can this product reach higher ceilings and up to 9 feet, is extremely low weight, making it easier to be used for ceiling applications. Its 9” flexible head is not only ideal for larger surface areas, it conforms to contours as well! Its ergonomic handle design provides superior balance, allowing it to be guided for longer periods of time and less operator fatigue.
At the World of Concrete earlier this year we had the opportunity to run the CS Unitec 7” Concrete Grinder EBS 180 H ($980) with the optional walk behind stand 37217 ($560). For anyone who has spent time using a traditional 7” grinder on concrete will understand while they can do a decent job they are not well designed for this application off extended periods working on the floor. The EBS 180 H has a very powerful 20amp motor specifically designed and geared for this tough application. With a built-in dust port, adjustable guard, flush front, vibration control and duel top handles make this tool ideal for applying various levels of pressure that give the user excellent control, from lightly skimming the surface smooth or heavy material removal.

Anyone who has ever done it knows that sanding the joint compound off of drywall is a messy, arduous, and sometimes downright dirty job. CS Unitec has been there, and now they are improving the entire process with the introduction of the CS Unitec 9” Drywall Sander ETS 225. (more…)
January is always a fun time to talk concrete because of the World of Concrete show at the end of the month. If you have a chance to go one interesting demonstrations you will probably see is the guys cutting perfect square windows in solid wall slabs of concrete using diamond chain saws. It still amazes us everytime we see it. There really is nothing that compares to these concrete chain saws when you are looking at cutting power to weight and the ability for one person to control it.
