The TwinTier RB401T-E is presented as the world’s first stand-up, battery-powered rebar tying tool. Designed to reduce back strain, it features an extended frame allowing concrete slab crew members to tie rebar while standing upright. The tool’s automatic contact mechanism/switch forms a tie when pushed down over a rebar intersection; no trigger to pull. Users can adjust the RB401T-E handles to two positions to find the most comfortable one for their height. The long nose attachment allows the tool to glide into rebar intersections with minimal operator effort. The features work together to reduce instances of back strain and musculoskeletal injuries.
The RB401T-E can tie #3 x #3 up to #6 x #6 rebar combinations for a variety of applications, including bridge or roadway decks, industrial foundations, commercial floors, and water tanks. Like other TwinTier family tools, the RB401T-E exhibits fast tying speed, optimized wire consumption and a short wire tie. It also uses the same battery and TW1061T wire as the RB441T and RB611T handheld models. TW1061T is available in Black Steel, Poly-Coated, Electro-Galvanized, Stainless Steel and Buy America options. — MAX USA Corp., Plainview, N.Y., 800/223-4293; www.maxusacorp.com
