Convert 16bit to 8bit Tifs (Hope to Batch)

The Export Raster Data Tool (accessed through right click - Data - Export Data in ArcView) allows the user to select the "Use Renderer" option. This option seems to convert my 16bit tifs into 8bit tifs properly. Problem is I cannot use this tool in a Model to repeat it multiple times.

Any Ideas?
Thanks in advance.
