Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, is pleased to announce its new ToughTek ® F800e, an innovative cementitious fireproofing pump that couples performance with portability for contractors across the United States.

Designed with Graco's patent-pending piston pump technology and a direct-drive electric motor, the ToughTek F800e pump addresses contractors' need for a more efficient and higher-performing fireproofing pump. Contractors want to complete a job as quickly as possible while still maintaining high-quality work. With the F800e pump, they can spray up to 40 bags per hour from a pump that plugs into any standard 240-volt, 30-amp outlet, packing a powerful punch without drawing a lot of power.

"Graco developed the F800e by listening to the needs of contractors from all over the country," said Bryce Gapinski, Graco Product Manager for the ToughTek line of products. "We designed a breakthrough pump that has a small footprint, is lightweight and easy to push around a job site and requires less maintenance than rotor stator pumps, all while ensuring the pump delivers high performance."

Weighing less than 400 pounds, the output and size of the F800e pump make it ideal for everyday jobs. This maneuverability allows contractors to get in and out of floors quickly so the other trades can access them sooner.
