Concrete Crafters isn't the only one benefiting from its laser grading system. "I did fine grading for a slab for a Big Y supermarket, and the concrete contractor that came in and placed the concrete with a Laser Screed said he never had the grade so good - his yield was dead on," Burch says. "The Laser Screed is real precise on the top of the floor, so the top is going to be right whether the bottom is or not. If the sub-base is undercut it's going to kill [your profits] on the yield; if it's overcut the entity may refuse the floor and that would be disastrous."
Burch adds because the Laser-Grader can be trailered by a heavy-duty pickup truck, they'll take it to their largest jobs and jobs that are only a couple hundred square feet.
He says the unit's compact size benefits in other ways. "The machine is articulated, all-wheel drive and compact so it gets into small, tight spaces, which is a plus for our type of work," Burch explains. "There are lots of big, cumbersome systems out there that aren't effective on small jobsites because you have to do so much handwork around corners, edging, plumbing and so on. The Laser-Grader has such good visibility and is so maneuverable it really minimizes the hand work."
