It has been almost seven years since Trade Tool Innovations has sent out it’s first concrete screed. The first screed went to Atlanta Georgia. The TTI Screedright Pro has been shipped all over the United States, Canada and the world.
The TTI Screedright Pro is a one man power concrete screed that utilizes a wooden 2″ X 4″ or a 2″ X 6″ as a screed bar. The small Subaru Robin four stroke engine vibrates the machine. The vibration helps settle the concrete as it is being poured out of a concrete truck.
In this video, Tom reviews a few helpful tips for those using the TTI Screedright Pro.
It is not necessary to use a full throttle when operating the concrete machine. The screed works best when 1/4 to 1/2 throttle is applied. The screed board should be kept perpendicular with the forms. This is best achieved by keeping the screed handle bar level. One common error is to dip the handle bar too low or raise it too high while operating the machine. Another common mistake is to try and go too fast while pulling the machine along the forms. Try and keep a slower, even pace as you operate the concrete tool over your flat work. If there is excess concrete left behind after you go over the concrete slab, this may be the problem. Try sanding down a little bit.
