    Customer Reviews ★★★★★

    "The RT-40 saved many hours labour and did not leave offcuts to clean up. It is excellent! On a 300m2 job I needed only 3 guys instead of 6 and tying the rebar using the RT-40 tie wire machine took 4 hours instead of 2 days. It does not leave offcuts like doing it by hand. This saved a 4 hour clean up before the pour."

    "The Rapid Tool RT-40 rebar tie machine has enabled my concreting business to tie steel in under half the time with no effort. A must have for any steel fixer/concreter"

    "I'm a hydronic heating installer and I use my RT40-A for slab heating. It's definitely my favourite new toy, and it's easily paid for itself in the few jobs I've done with it. This gig has 700 metres of pipe in it, this used to be 2 guys and sore backs and hands. It's now a solid day for one person, and a thousand times easier on the back."

    Rebar Tiers – The Ultimate Solution for Rebar Tying Work

    RAPIDTOOL provides the hardiest and most durable rebar tiers in the business.

    Tying rebar manually can literally be the one of most back breaking tasks in the construction industry. Repetitive strain to back, arms and hand muscles can result in unwarranted injuries that cause even more severe musculoskeletal damage over the long run. For this reason, manual rebar tying work has been considered an outdated and inefficient health hazard.

    Studies concerning the occupational risks undertaken by health workers in manual rebar tying are slowly but surely changing the way manual physical labor is implemented in work sites. Such studies have been conducted by organizations such as the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in the United States and the Construction Safety Association of Ontario.

    RAPIDTOOL’s rebar tiers are of the most superior quality intending to save contractors’ and businesses’ time, money, and manual effort by performing the job more efficiently with minimum health trauma.

    Our top-of-the-line selection includes the powerful RT max 40mm and RT max 60mm rebar tier and the convenient replacement tie wire coils for the equipment. These all deliver powerful rebar tying processes that outperform most rebar tiers in the industry. With our strict quality control and controlled product testing, you and your contractors are guaranteed only the best.


    Why do you need the RT-40A Rebar Tying Machine?

    You might be engaged in the creation of concrete floors or foundations. Or maybe, you are currently erecting a swimming pool wall, concrete wall or a retaining wall. You might even be involved in the installation of an under-floor heating system. Whatever the result might be, the construction process involved in each and every one of these projects requires that you and your handymen use rebar or reinforced steel bars to provide stability and strength to the structure. And part and parcel of the rebar installation process is tying these rods in place so that the skeleton structure for the project becomes robust enough to withstand the laying of concrete. Rebar tying is therefore, a critical step in the overall construction process – one that requires focus and precision at all times. It is also one of the most repetitive steps in the process, requiring workmen to manually tie and fix rebar in place using thin steel wires. Imagine having to hunch down and bend over the rebar mesh being created, tying every overlap of rods so that the structure holds its shape and position. And imagine manually cutting steel wires into hundreds of small pieces and wrapping each one around the rod with your bare hands so that the rebar doesn’t move from its intended place. Sounds frustratingly time consuming, doesn’t it? We understand how tough rebar tying can become, especially when you are dealing with a time crunch with your team running pillar to post to complete the project. And so, our team at RAPIDTOOL went ahead and helped create a unique product that takes the frustration out of the mundane task of rebar tying and makes the entire process effortless and efficient. Introducing the RT max 40mm rebar tier, an outstanding machine that deals with all the issues related to rebar tying with the magic of engineering. This is an automatic rebar tier that can tie steel around rebar in 0.6 seconds flat! You will be hard put to find a product as reliable and efficient as this one!
