Ritmo L or Mtec200??

Isn't the Ritmo XL a modern version of the Monojet?

I started with a monojet. Great machine just too heavy to get on the Cabstar and the 250 kg generator. I can get the Ritmo up on on planks on my own if I take the motor off and no generator needed.

There are times on the big walls I could do with the speed of a 3 phrase.
Ritmo xl is bigger and heavier than a ritmo tho. But yes it will do both. Switchable 3 phase and single phase

Tidy specs on the 3 phase version.

Thst 240 looks like a putz. Why dont they sell over here like.

The ritmo xl is more or less the replacement for a monojet.
The spec being a gravity fed mixing pump that also can be taken apart for ease of transportation.
Its available 3 phase & 230v or switchable 3 phase /230v

In germany they have 3 phase everywhere so a seperate generator isnt usually required and that gotta be a huge benefit to guys running small vans or estate cars who can just fit the machine straight in. Also a reason why the Ritmo is a popular machine in the uk.

The minijet 2 i think was the machine that looked like a ritmo . Its motor looked like an angle grinder. This got replaced by a ritmo with a propper top motor.

I like the look of that
 
Hi

I don't get this as you can have 415v plugged in a genny , or you can have 240v plugged in a genny ,
If you do something silly and get a shock which one
Would you want it off !!!. Iam with 240v myself

I sure most people that use a Ritmo want it for domestic work the same as the Mtec200 ,but I cannot see running one of a small Genny is a problem ?

So long as the 240v machine is plugged into a rcd protected main, whats the problem?

As said, 415v will kill you, no doubt about it but h& s accept 415v but not 240v ? Both will fry you.

I've been on 110v sites with the ritmo l 240v no body looked at it. I have 240v leads that are yellow;)

Mines 240 and 90% of the the work is on site I've only been asked once about it so I use armoured cable same as 3 phase

What's a armoured cable

The outer layer has got wire in it

The agent said it would be and he was a stickler for the rules he would've even let us on site before we had the induction

I've always said when buying a machine listen to the foot soldiers using them.we use them day in day out.
You will get a honest review on them

230v is much better.
the machine was made for 230v.

any videos i have seen of 110v machines being ritmo, eze,or m200 it looks like 230v could have been used instead with no issues. therefore they have compromised on power and had to lug a tranny about.

even the guys rendering with 110v who are on site site will end up using a generator because you cant use very long cables with 110v and chances are the 110v site tranny is close enough are very slim.
small mixing pumps are popular for domestic markets where you can just plug into the mains. more people use 230v than 110v

There is no compromise when using a M200 as the output and pumping distance is greater than the 240v machines on the market. The machine can be 25m away from the Transformer, its not often we have more than 25m of cable between the 3 phase machines and a generator.

If its site work they are doing, the likelihood is they will probably be using a 3 Phase machine anyway.

There is no arguing, 240v is more convenient in most cases, but then, you need to stick to what the law says and take the required precautions whilst using the machinery: http://www.hse.gov.uk/construction/safetytopics/systems.htm

We are just sticking to the HSE's guidelines and what our insurers have advised us: http://www.hse.gov.uk/myth/myth-busting/2015/case355-tools-max-110v.htm

The 110v market is very big for us, we could sell the 240v range from M-tec but our company policy is our policy! There is a reason major sites don't allow it, it all well and good 'getting away with it', but if something happens, who is then liable!
