Parry/IIW Gyrodrive


Screeding Machine

Description

The Gyrodrive is a hand-powered screeding machine, which is operated with the same speed, efficiency and convenience as an electrically powered machine. While the other HP models vibrate only as long as the handle is cranked, the Gyrodrive stores the energy in a flywheel, which gives 40 seconds of vibration with 10 turns of the handle. A special "ball gearbox" transmits the energy to the vibrator, which can be switched on and off at will. Thus the Gyrodrive can be operated by just one person.

Both workstation (GHP 1000) and table top (GHP 250) versions of the Gyrodrive are available, but the machine has also been designed such that it can be bolted onto existing Parry electric or hand-powered vibrating machines, therefore the power pack and underchassis can be bought separately.
