The Minnich Control Speed Concrete Vibrator with Electric Flex Shaft

The Control Speed Vibrator (CSV) from Minnich Manufacturing is a lightweight, durable, electric flex shaft concrete vibrator controlled through connectivity. Using Bluetooth and the Minnich app on an iOS or Android device, operators can choose between set speeds of 6,000, 8,000, 10,500, and open VPM. Choosing slower vibration speeds lessens material separation and reduces surface blemishes and repairs. Once a speed is chosen, the CSV will maintain that speed as the concrete load changes. The 15-amp (115-volt) universal motor drives a full line of Minnich shafts and heads and comes standard with a quick disconnect that adapts to the vibrators of many manufacturers. The CSV has been designed with a soft start that saves energy and mechanical wear on the motor and power system.
