Hydro Mobile Inc.
L'Assomption, Québec

New Products for Masonry Contractors

Hydro Mobile, a leading North American manufacturer of mast climbing work platforms, is announcing the launch of their new and improved P Series, the perfect tool for smaller scale jobs or restrained areas. Redesigned to move faster, the P Series offers an increased climbing speed of 10 feet per minute, twice the original climbing speed. This improvement will help mason contractors minimize downtime and allow the unit to be used on a broader range of jobs and applications. Furthermore, this unit can be hauled behind a truck with Hydro Mobile's new trailer accessory, making for extremely easy and quick relocation, and helping you get more done.

The clips are self-adjusting and aligning to fit the thickness and size of most block walls and plates. Because embed plates are installed as work progresses, no follow-up work is required and blowouts are eliminated. The front of the clip can be easily removed after grouting.
