Superior quality rebar tying tools are powered by 18V - 4.0Ah Li-ion batteries and can tie steel in 0.6 or 0.8 seconds flat. Designed for superior performance, the rebar tying tool ensures tighter tie tension and can perform over 4,500 ties per charge with three wraps. Some models have the capacity to perform over 5,000 ties per charge with two wraps. A slim arm ensures tight ties and a brushless twisting and feeding motor helps prolong the machine’s life.
A good rebar tier can tie mesh and bar with a total diameter of 12-40mm or 30-60mm. A lightweight design makes it easy to transport, hold and use without straining the arms, hands, wrists, shoulders or fingers. To prevent straining yourself further, consider getting an electronic extension arm for the rebar tying tool. It is a handy, adjustable tool that could save your back from injuries and damage. It is easy to use from a standing position. Simply attach the extension arm to the rebar tying tool and pull the trigger to get the job done.
