Talisman Serves The Needs Of The Light Equipment Rental Market

25 January 2012

Talisman Hire has built its success on catering to the demands of its discerning market. A continuous overview and upgrading of its extensive fleet ensures that building contractors and DIY customers have instant access to best practice rental solutions.

The company’s latest offering to customers is the Flextool Portavibe from Australian company Parchem Flextool. “We are really excited about the Portavibe, which is built to suit the arduous conditions in both Australia and South Africa. Feedback from a wide base of customers underlines the robustness of this concrete vibrator,” said Talisman Franchise Operations MD Colin du Plessis.

The four-stroke, lightweight Portavibe compacts concrete using high frequencies and improves the strength of concrete by driving out trapped air. This portable vibrator is ideal for use on slabs, footings, stairways and footpaths. “The convenience of using a vibrator that does not rely on electrical power supply cannot be underestimated on site.

The mobility of the Portavibe means that contractors can undertake their jobs fast and efficiently, thus reducing the time required for the vibrating job at hand,” said Du Plessis.

The unit is designed around convenience and flexibility and eliminates the need for a separate drive unit. “It also decreases fuel usage and engine emissions when compared to conventional drive units or two-stroke motors. These factors create the added benefit of reducing the carbon footprint and preserving non-renewable energy resources,” Du Plessis added.

For user comfort and convenience, the Portavibe is fitted with an adjustable handle and carry strap. “This allows operators to have full control and use the vibrator for extended periods without discomfort,” said Du Plessis.

“The high rate of compaction efficiency provided by the Flextool Portavibe, combined with the speed and accuracy of the Flextool FT40 or FP446 power trowel (also available from Talisman Hire stores countrywide), dramatically reduce the time it takes to place and finish a concrete slab,” Du Plessis concluded.
