Concrete finishing equipment

Scheduled for release early next year, the MX FUEL Vibratory Screed from Milwaukee Tool is designed to ensure the slab is flat and meets grade. Delivering the power to pull a 16-foot bar and offering up to two hours of run-time per charge when used with a 12-foot bar, it can consolidate up to six inches of concrete without sacrificing power.
Its push-button start provides instant power, and the battery-powered screed requires no regular maintenance and has zero emissions. The screed can also run two motors on one bar for increased mobility if using a longer bar.
Seven screed bars are available separately, ranging from 4-feet to 16-feet in length. Constructed from lightweight magnesium, the extra-rigid, double triangle design transmits consistent vibrations across the entire length of the bar. Utilizing a clamp design, Milwaukee’s Screed Bar allows users to quickly attach the bar at any point on the machine.
“Coming off the success of the MX FUEL Backpack Concrete Vibrator, we knew the next step was to provide a concrete leveling solution,” said Kevin Gee, director of product management for Milwaukee Tool. “The MX FUEL Vibratory Screed is the next step in our push to offer general contractors and concrete contractors a full line of concrete finishing equipment solutions.”
