Stu recently had a go at cleaning his driveway with the Makinex Dual Pressure Washer and was astounded at the results. “The biggest benefit was the time saving. I own a standard had spray pressure washer and on average when I’d clean my driveway it would take 1.5 hours but with the Makinex Dual Pressure Washer, it took between 20-30 minutes. I also attracted a bit of interest from the neighbours who were very impressed with the results!”

The Jackhammer Trolley (JHT) has been an award-winning innovative product that has enabled operators to remove floor tiles faster!
Since the JHT was first introduced, this unique invention has undergone a series of ongoing upgrades and improvements to allow for a truly evolutionary solution for demolishers.
The JHT is a demolition tool for the fast and effective removal of floor tiles, adhesive residue, vinyl and cork from concrete and wooden surfaces.
What is unique about this product is the trolley itself carries the majority of the weight of the jackhammer, relieving the pressure and strain from the operator. As a result, operator fatigue and injury is considerably reduced. With built-in shock absorbers, the JHT also cuts down on the vibration impact, which essentially means less headaches and back pain!
In March 2013, Makinex released a new and improved design of the JHT, reconfiguring the frame so the handle bar position is higher for better ergonomics. As is to be expected of Makinex, the JHT will undergo regular design review in an effort towards continuous improvement.
“We want to be an industry beacon when it comes to the provision of unique and innovative products,” says company Director, Rory Kennard. “That means Makinex must be progressive, passionate and nimble in everything we do from design to delivery.”
The JHT is available for both sale and hire, with optional attachments such as a wide chisel and tile smasher available for specific applications.

We purchased the Mixing Station about 2 years ago and it paid for itself on the first job. We had a large student accommodation project that required over 2000 bags of floor leveller, the Mixing Station did it with ease. Since then, it has been utilised on most of our jobs both large and small. It saves time and makes us money! It has definitely made our lives easier!
I’ve used the Mixing Station to install TRU, Ardex, Stampcrete, MiraCote, FossilCrete, Mapei and pretty much everything else I use for decorative concrete. I initially purchased the MS-100 to do a polished TRU job which was 3000sqf. I was left in a bind. I coordinated 6 men for two days to get it poured. I quickly found out in a couple of hours that the entire project was going to be done in about 5 hours or so and I really only needed 2 helpers and myself. We were able to mix 3 bages every 5 minutes with consistency right out of the box. Wall studs were up, sliding doors and floor drains installed, conduit everywhere. Didn’t matter. We just mixed and oured exactly where we needed to be with virtually no clean up! Thanks to the MS-100, total job time from prep to clean up has been reduced by 25%.
James Kaita, Modern Faux Finishes, Honolulu HI, USA
The Makinex Mixing Stations we purchased from Makinex have been used hard for the last three months and all I can say is please send me two more! Our guys are fighting over the three stations we have. They guys love how easy it is to mix two or three bags at a time and easily roll out to the floor and pour without and stress or strain. A two man mixing crew with three stations can keep material coming fast than four guys can rake and smooth on an average pour. My boss loves the dramatic increase in productivity and reduction in labour costs over standard bucket pour procedures. By cutting back from a three to two man mixing crew we are saving up to eight hours of labour every time we pour, as well as covering larger areas with fewer cold joints. Thanks for the great product!
Quinn Anderson, Prime Flooring (Seattle, Washington USA)
With the Makinex Mixing Station an 8 hour job was finished in 2 ½ hours with one less staff member than I would usually use. The Makinex Mixing Station is a definite goer for this industry.
