    As I've said earlier in this post, think light weight and simple for tools you need to carry in the woods. Ii don't see any advantage to carrying a heavy tool to eliminate a simple task using a tool that weighs just a small fraction of the spare battery you'll need to carry for the power tool.

    Quick answer to that one would be time is the advantage. I can tie pipe as the same speed I walk though the woods (except when changing the role of course haha). 2 weekends ago I went to tie up 4000 feet of pipe starting at 8:00. it sure was nice being in the house by 11:30 for lunch.

    Ok. I vote for the cordless rebar tie tool. Sorry Brien, I tried to save you a few bucks. You can always start a concrete construction business after you buy the tool.

    Max twintier 441t is the ultimate answer. I can tie 2-3000 feet per hour. The price is a bit of a set back and I presume will keep most producers, especially small producers from going that route. for an installer like me it is a no brainer.

    I agree! I love my Max tier too. I’ve owned one for 8 years, take good care of it and it will last a long time.

    what wire are you using? is there a galvanized/ss option for tie wire on these?
    5000 taps on vacuum, just trying to get a little better every year.

    i use the Galvanized wire for the twin tier it works great. Nobody stocks the SS option in my area and its about 3 times the price.

    They also make a PVC coated wire. I don't know what it cost.
