MAX USA Corp. recently launched its new large jaw cordless rebar tying tool, the TwinTier RB611T.
This new rebar tying tool is the world’s only battery powered rebar tying tool with the ability to tie #9 x #10 rebar.
The TwinTier simultaneously shoots two 19ga. wires around rebar intersections wrapping once to form a tie equivalent to the strength of a hand snap tie.
The TwinTier uses TW1061T series tie wire available in black, poly coated, electro. galvanized, stainless and Buy America steel options. The 4.0 amp li-ion battery, which powers the tool, will complete about 4,000 ties before needing to be recharged.
The TwinTier RB611T’s large jaw allows users to tie #5 x #5 up to #9 x #10 rebar (varying by rebar manufacturer). Its enclosed design offers greater protection against debris and moisture entering the tool.
Like other MAX rebar tying tools, the simple operation of the TwinTier helps reduce muscular skeletal injuries, when compared to hand tying. Published NIOSH report (HEATA #2003-0146-2976) and the Canadian Safety Association of Ontario Final Report (WSIB Grant #01023) both support these statements.
