Yep no mud on the video. I wonder how it would work in some of those shallow closets. I could see it having some possibilities but for some of us shorter tapers anything over six ft high horizontals is a pain. Someone please get one and see how it works.

Send tapepro a email, tell them your willing to test it for the members of DWT. Tell them what you say at DWT, holds a lot of weight:laughing::laughing:.Explain to them their sales could sky rocket.

Good little find sdrdrywall

Looks like some painful geometry going on there to me. You're pushing in one direction to force the mud out while pulling it downward to maintain the path of the seam. I think the shoulder strain would be an issue.

I hope I'm wrong.

Very clever though!!! :thumbup:

Not sure on the shoulder strain I always push with whatever hand is driving the box ( the one closest to the box) rather than tippy toe holding up two arms you only need to stretch out one and help guide with the lower (end of the handle) I would be willing to try it out. I still think there are possibilities for small closets and perhaps stairwells. Just a thought.

I work at Tapepro - these are only just being released now and we plan to sell them in Australia only for a couple of months, just to make sure everything works as planned.
We'll sort something out with cazna - can always do with some more feedback.

Works well in the testing we have done - reduces a lot of strain on your body, and makes it possible to do those higher flats from the floor.

I'm a good critic too ya know .
I've never seen any tapepro gear around these parts, just out of curiosity do you have distributers in NZ?

Looks like old premier auto taper. I never cared for the premier taper myself. Of course I can run in both direction. switching hands is not an issue , Seems like the premier was designed more for lefties. Now blueline does make an auto head that like tape tech.
