The Quikpave Jointer or Grouter (also known as the Lightning Grouter) provides the same facilities and benefits as the Quikpoint Mortar Pointing Gun for anyone wishing to fill paving joints. The design is very similar, with an auger being driven directly by the attached rotary drill, which the owner is free to select.
An auger is used to deliver a consistent flow of mortar, at a speed controlled by the drill trigger, with little risk of mix separation or clogging. The five nozzles of differing sizes and shapes, allow the mortar or grout to be inserted accurately within the joint, so soiling of surrounding surfaces need not occur. Hopper capacity is approximately 10 litres (2+ gallons). As with the mortar pointing gun, the Quikpave will be much faster than trowel filling and more likely to achieve full joint penetration. It will be physically less demanding than hand-held grouting guns (also known as caulking or mastic guns) which rely on continuous hand-generated pressure and are prone to causing Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI). And since the Quikpave permits the user to stand upright, it is much kinder to the knees and back joints.
Quikpave (and Quikpoint) systems are designed to dispense water-based cementitious or lime mortars. Due to the larger volume of mix that can be loaded into the Quikpave hopper, it is important to mix the mortar more thoroughly, as this will reduce the possibility of plugging. With some mixes, a plasticiser additive may be desirable to ensure free flowing and consistent output.
The smaller the better - avoid heavy duty drills, such as hammer or SDS types. A slim-body rotary drill should weigh less than 2 kg.
Low revs with speed control - ideally you want to aim for an operating speed of 750 - 1000 rev/min.
A drill with a high top speed (say 3000 rev/min) will probably have low torque; a 1500 rev/min max speed drill will deliver much better torque. Most small rotary drills have an acceleration trigger. With the Quikpoint, you’ll work best if you can lock the speed to suit the job. So try to use a drill where you can set the speed limit, usually through a small rotary control on the trigger.
Attaching a drill - the drill attaches to the drive rod that protrudes from the top of the metal frame on the attachment. The end of the rod has machined flats to allow the chuck to tighten most securely. Many modern drills have hand-tightening chucks, which in constant use, may need re-tightening.
Battery drills - a corded mains drill will always deliver better performance but there are numerous instances of battery drills being attached to Quikpoints. Handy for restricted or challenging jobs such as repointing chimneys.
We supply - the Makita 6510LVR has a max speed of 1050 rev/min. It is strong, smooth and very reliable. It is more expensive than other makes/models we have trialled, but its superior performance and longevity has persuaded us to continue with this as our sole offering.
We supply most of our Quikpaves as attachments (without a drill) and rarely get calls from customers, which suggests the Quikpave attachment has been successfully fitted to a variety of drills without difficulty.
