FREE SHIPPING - Northern Industrial Tools Concrete Vibrator - 3/4 HP, 13,000 VPM
They do not work
I bought 4 of these vibrators. Not one of them worked correctly. I mean, straight out of the box, failure. The motor would turn on but it would engage/disengage with the head making it vibrate only sometimes. Very frustrating when you have concrete on the job and you have to leave to go buy another vibrator. I will not buy these ever again. Now I have to waste my time packaging them all up and sending them back so I can get a refund.

Works great, We did have to bump it to start vibration like instructions said you may have to do but performed terrific otherwise. Smoothed the concrete right out and made the hand screed much easier and look way more professional. Much cheaper than renting when you have multiple pours.

Great tool for deck footings
I poured ten 12-inch diameter deck footings recently and used the concrete vibrator to consolidate the layers between pours and to ensure there were no voids in the concrete. After I stripped away the top few inches of the cardboard forms I observed that the sides of the footings were much smoother than when I relied on the "ram the concrete with a piece of rebar or a 1x2" technique. This is a great tool to produce a top-notch end result.

Good tool for the money
I poured decorative concrete and countertops. This tool was used regularly on a weekly basis, dropped on the floor, dropped in the concrete, and just not treated very well in general. It lasted 8-9 years! Let's just say, I'll have another one on order soon.

We recently poured concrete footings and stem walls for a building slab. As the concrete was pumped into the forms, I just dropped the wand into the mud, pulled the trigger, and watched the mud flow down the form center, and stopped the vibrator when the mud reached the bottom of the forms. No hammer tapping the forms at all. When we pulled the form boards, we had the smoothest and most consistant pour we've done.
Lows- The motor sounds cheap, like it's grinding itself up, but it never gave us any problems. Also, sometimes you had the rap the wand against the form or something solid to get the vibrating action working.....but, the results were well beyond my expectations.
Highs- The long power chord, the price, and the results.

I'm building a 240 foot retaining wall that is four feet high six inches wide and two hundred fourty feet long. This vibrator has made the project go much easier. The air pockets have been eliminated.
This is a GREAT TOOL.

works good for the money
bought it so i could stop paying for a rental. it was on sale so i decided to take the plunge. the - bang to get it going is something to get used to but not a big deal. i suppose other units cost a lot more so the luxury of having a switch has it´s cost. i would buy it again although i see the price is considerably higher. a 25% increase in a year and a half? in these times? for construction tools of all things??? maybe it was the dollar dropping. that would make more sense.
