Flexible Shaft Concrete Vibrators

Return to Product Categories

Flexible shaft vibrators are designed for all general construction. Typical applications include footings and stem walls, small slabs, driveways, and stairways.

They are very portable and convenient to use.

Quick Release for Flexible shaft applications: Simple, effective and easy to use, the quick release package includes a new style motor end snout and an adaptor for the flexible shaft housing. It allows quick removal of the core and housing assembly for storage or a change to a different shaft length or head size. This new quick release system can easily be retrofitted to Denver Concrete Vibrator flexible shaft units already in the field. The Quick Release option package includes a new motor end, and one adaptor. Additional adaptors are available.

Backpack for flexible shaft units: This comfortable cushioned fiberglass frame moves the flexible shaft motor out of a man's hand and on to his back. It also serves to help keep equipment cleaner, and off the ground.

Insulated heads for epoxy coated rebar applications: Now available for jobs that require a cushioned head to protect the epoxy rebar, we offer 1 3/4", 2" and 2 ½" insulated heads for both our flexible shaft units and High Cycle units. Pneumatic heads can also be insulated.

Features:

  • High amplitude heads for greater radius of effect.
  • Nine standard lengths of flexible shafts assemblies are available at all times.
  • The finest quality flexible housing available.
  • Custom lengths are available by special order. Sealed bearings require no lubrication.
  • Six head sizes available for a wide variety of jobs .
  • A connector is available to connect two shafts to extend shaft length .
  • Standard diameter flexible shafts are interchangeable with any of the four larger head sizes.
  • Interchangeable steel/rubber nose on the five larger heads. Core and housing, with head sizes of 1 1/2" diameter or larger, can be reversed, head end to motor end, to extend housing and core life.
