More hands-on demo's allow concrete contractors & dealers to feel the difference for themselves
La Mirada, CA Makita joined nearly 50,000 concrete contractors and dealers under brilliant sunny skies in Las Vegas for four days of hammering, surfacing and drilling at the annual World of Concrete trade show.
The World of Concrete is the concrete industry's largest annual event, and Makita was there with Experience More, the 53-foot interactive tool display on wheels. Makita also offered hands-on demonstrations of its latest concrete solutions, with several tons of 4,000 PSI concrete formed in flat slabs and upright walls so attendees could try out the tools for themselves.
"Makita power tools deliver industrial strength performance with less vibration in a more compact size, and are engineered to beat up the concrete, not the end user. World of Concrete is a great opportunity to demonstrate these concrete solutions in an interactive setting," said Wayne Hart, Communications Manager, Makita USA. "This year we offered more new products with more concrete and more demonstrations, and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Once again, World of Concrete delivered great weather, and a great audience that stepped up and felt the difference for themselves."
For World of Concrete attendees, the Makita booth experience is all about trying out the tools and feeling the difference for themselves. At the 2011 event in Las Vegas, Makita offered more new products with more concrete for hands-on demo's, including an 8-foot upright wall for drilling (top-right), new dust extraction accessories for grinders and rotary hammers (right), and several large slabs of concrete for new demolition hammers (far right). Makita offered several hands-on demonstrations of new and existing products, including three brand new demolition hammers: the HM1307CB 35lb (1-1/8" Hex), HM1203C 20lb (SDS-Max) and HM0870C 11lb (SDS-Max), as well as two new dust extraction accessories.
In addition to displays and demonstrations of the latest concrete solutions, Makita was joined by the Rockstar Makita LeDuc Race Team and their 900 HP Truck (which they started-up a few times, to the delight of the many race fans at the event). Curt, Kyle, and Todd LeDuc are the best family race team in the off-road business, and they use Makita tools to keep their trucks on-track in high-energy racing throughout the year. The Rockstar Energy Drink models were also on-hand for photos and poster signing (right). All photos can be downloaded at makitanation.com
