Maybe you aren’t going to reach speeds of 40 MPH on these Marshalltown knee boards, but at least you won’t sink into the concrete while you’re shuffling along at 0.04 MPH.
Strap into the kneepads, lock your toes into the toe brackets, and you’re ready to work some concrete. The knee boards are made from 18 gauge stainless steel so they won’t turn into rust from contact with wet concrete all day. When the knee pads finally give out, you can replace them without having to buy a whole new pair of knee boards.
Pricing for Marshalltown’s KB230 knee boards start around $110.
Goldblatt’s pistol grip wire twister twists wire ties that hold rebar or steel mesh in place while you prepare to pour concrete. Just hook the tie and give it two or three twists. Looking at the offset hook, I’m guessing that the hook rotates in the handle.
I’m not exactly sure how the pistol grip description fits with this tool, but Goldblatt does claim they designed the tool for “rough treatment.” There’s not much more to say about this simple tool other than pricing starts around $4 before shipping.
It may go against your initial thinking, but sometimes you actually need to make cracks bigger to properly fill them. Crack chasing blades like the one pictured allow you to widen cracks in concrete and asphalt and taper the edges so you can fill them properly.
MK Diamond designed their V-segment MK-404DV crack chaser for dry cutting. Available in 4″, 4-1/4″, 5″, 7″, and 8″ sizes, these blades can be used in angle grinders with standard threaded or non-threaded arbors depending on the blade model. They run anywhere from $200 to $300 depending on the size.
