Sharp from the start and smooth to the finish: Multiquip power trowels

on Feb 17, 2007




Multiquip has introduced the new four-blade B and J Series walk-behind power trowels.

The new machines contain powerful engines to generate improved rotor speeds of between 60 to 155rpm.

The four new B Series models, with 1,170mm ring diameters, and six J Series models, with a 914mm diameter, also feature an ergonomic throttle control, lifting bail, and rugged spider assembly for extended life. Refined engineering delivers optimal balance for exceptionally smooth finishes.

 

According to the company, technicians will benefit from a new access panel, which is standard on the new models. This simple panel makes it easier than ever to grease the unit, change blades and service trowel arms, trimming service time and the difficulty commonly found with maintaining other trowels.

The trowels also include a height-adjustable 50mm diameter tubular steel handle for improved operator comfort and workability and a unique throttle control design features detent settings for easy selection of the operating speed. A centrifugal shutdown switch protected by steel housing provides improved durability.

Both B and J Series models are available with MQ/Whiteman's Quick-Pitch or standard handles for greater leverage as well as adjustable handle heights for improved comfort. The Quick-Pitch handle design enables the operator to react to changing concrete conditions by quickly raising or lowering the blade pitch in 3.2mm increments. Other contractors prefer the standard handle for infinite blade pitch control.

The 10 new walk-behind trowels are offered with Honda and Robin engine options, ranging from 5.5hp to 11hp.

Multiquip is a supplier of concrete and masonry cutting, placing and finishing products, compaction equipment, dewatering pumps, power generation equipment and lighting solutions.
