The last time we went to UK Construction week at the NEC in Birmingham was back in 2019 pre covid so it was really nice to be back at an event like this albeit much smaller than previously which was a shame.
With spray plaster on the rise in the UK we are always looking at ways to speed up any part of the project, and from Graco’s point of view this was the whole point of developing the PowerFill battery powered loading pump.
Taken from Graco.com: Discover the industry’s first cordless battery-powered loading pump for drywall finishing. Designed to fill not only all your manual tools but also all of your automatic taping and finishing tools. PowerFill totally eliminates the need to manually pump. Perfect for daily finishing on larger residential and commercial jobs with the option to go for larger bucket sizes.
Never hand pump again. Single-button pumping eliminates the fatigue and injury associated with manual pumping. It pumps up to 13 lpm (3.5 gpm) at a consistent speed, all-day, and up to 200 litres (55 gallons) on a single battery charge for all-day filling of all drywall tools. Programmable to refill tools automatically with Precision Fill.
Rhys McWilliams of McWilliams Decorators has heard quite a bit about this cool bit of kit and posed the question of whether it was a gimmickor a game changer! Here Rhy’s talks to Mark Smith of Graco to run though the machine and what it does.
Hopefully we can get one out to Rhy’s on site to give it a run for its money so watch this space for move videos to come.
To find out more info about the PowerFill then check out the brochure from Graco here.
These machines are now available to buy from SMS Spray Supplies so if you are interested in finding out more then just chat to Liam on 07534 732004
