    New Midwest Rake Roller Gauges Make Applying Coatings Easier

    New Midwest Rake Roller Gauges make it easier to apply elastomeric floor and roof coatings.  

    The simple snap-on gauges are used with a 3/16” nap roller and allow professionals to directly control the mil thickness of the coating being applied.  The contractor can spread the material, gauge and backroll the material all in one convenient step.


    Midwest Rake Roller Gauges work well with floor and roof coatings such as epoxies, urethanes, anti-skid floor toppings, or vapor barriers.

    Midwest Rake Roller Gauges are color-coded to make the selection process easier. Choose yellow for thin films (approximately 4 mils), red for medium films (approximately 12 mils), and blue for thick films (approximately 22 mils). Each package contains six of the patent-pending endcaps together with a helpful instruction card.

    Seymour Midwest Introduces Structron Wheelbarrow

    Seymour Midwest LLC has introduced a high-performance wheelbarrow for contractor, industrial and construction markets. The new Structron Excavator Max is built solid to handle the toughest jobs and designed to last for years. 

    A key feature is the standard flat-free tire which makes the wheelbarrow always “ready to roll”. The flat free tire eliminates potential downtime from flats and makes the wheelbarrow immune to glass, staples and jobsite debris. 

    The wheelbarrow’s standard all-steel construction combines a rugged frame with a heavy-gauge steel tray making it ideal for hauling concrete pavers, concrete blocks, soil, gravel and other bulk materials.
