The Rattle Stick cuts down on finishing time when used with walking tools

General contractor Frank Mikowychok has invented a new tool, the Rattle Stick. The Rattle Stick is used for any kind of concrete finishing and connects to any kind of walking tool (bull floats, joint cutters, edgers) between the pole and the tool, sending a mild vibration into the tool to cut down on finishing time.

The Rattle Stick weighs just over 4 pounds and clips in and out of walking tools as easily as the pole does, so there’s no need to unbolt your vibrating tool from one tool and attach it to another. The Rattle Stick comes with a rechargeable battery that lasts four to six hours, depending on how heavily you use the tool throughout the day. Every tool comes with a charger and additional batteries are available upon request. The Rattle Stick will be shipped in a watertight reusable tube that also acts as a carrying case for the tool. Specifically designed for decorative concrete work, the Rattle Stick works best when used with smaller walking tools, but will still operate with a minimal loss of functionality with larger tools as well.
