The Most Versatile Vibrating Concrete Tool

Every so often, we get the opportunity to talk about our absolute favourite products, and today is one of those days. This product has been with us for years and we’re proud to carry it because of the incredible results and repeatedly pleased customers who use it. We’re talking about none other than the Rattle Stick EX Concrete Bull Floats. We have supplied numerous flat work companies with this amazing product because it always performs, cuts down on labour time, and if we don’t have it in stock, we have a close relationship with the supplier to get it quickly! Well, what just is the Rattle Stick?

The Rattle Stick EX Bull Float is a concrete bull-floating tool that vibrates to smooth out freshly poured concrete. Like you would use a bull float right when screeding is completed, you can use the Rattle Stick to do the same and to remove excess moisture or bleed water that rises to the surface through the vibrations caused by the tool. This is an incredibly important step in finishing concrete. The adjustable handle allows for it to be used in all sizes of jobs and the various bull float bottoms allow for increased versatility for different bends and curves needed on poured concrete. Overall creating an incredibly versatile concrete bull-floating tool with no question as to why it's constantly growing in popularity. The Rattle Stick EX Bull Floats come compatible with DeWalt, Makita, and Milwaukee batteries, just be sure to select the specific one that you need!

On top of providing excellent products, Rattle Stick does a tremendous job of uploading informative and interesting YouTube videos on their products. See by clicking here a video uploaded FOUR years ago that holds up great on explaining the various ways that the Rattle Stick EX Bull Float can be used. The videos especially showcase the simplicity and speed in which the Rattle Stick is used on job sites, lowering the labour involved which saves money.
