Somero Introduces the Mini Screed(TM) C Laser Screed®
Somero's technology and innovation produces a tougher Laser Screed for residential and small commercial markets The Somero Mini Screed C is lightweight for on-deck use and equipped for multiple commercial applications, such as over rebar or post tension. October 10, 2008 - The new Somero Mini Screed(TM) C-small and maneuverable with laser controlled accuracy-is now equipped for multiple applications such as chaired mesh, fluted metal deck, post tension and other commercial applications. This newest addition to the walk-behind Laser Screed® family consistently achieves laser accuracy on various slump and mix designs, demonstrating proven performance with all applications including radiant floor heating, un-reinforced elevated and slab-on-grade. The Mini Screed C uses Somero's patented laser-leveling technology to cut the concrete to a finished grade, screed it flat and vibrate it smooth in one pass. "The accuracy, convenience and adaptability of the Mini Screed C meets the needs of many of our customers, particularly in today's economy," said Howard Hohmann, vice president of sales for North and South America. With laser-controlled accuracy for extremely flat and level concrete floors, the Mini Screed C gives the contractor quality that used to be possible only in larger commercial construction where the bigger and heavier Somero CopperHead® and SXP® Laser Screed machines could be used. The Mini Screed C delivers the same results as other walk-behind Laser Screed machines and allows the contractor to screed more concrete on a smaller scale. The newest Laser Screed eliminates raking concrete to grade, obtaining wet pads or setting rails to establish floor elevation used with vibratory or roller screeding methods. Weighing just 470 lbs with a 6'8" head, the Mini Screed C is about the size of a commercial walk-behind lawnmower, fits easily into the back bed of a pick-up truck and is light enough to get on every project. Somero continues to introduce innovative products that save the contractor time and money through: Improved productivity; increased slab quality and flatness; reduced need for labor; more energy for other tasks; and reduced job-site injuries.
