Why Use a Walk Behind Trowelling Machine?
Walk behind trowelling machines, also known as concrete helicopters or concrete whirlybirds, are perfect for finishing concrete. They help you to cover more ground and complete the job faster with a smooth slab finish every time.
Troweling Machines are suitable for use outdoors and indoors. On average, tradies can cover at least three times more ground compared to using manual tools.
The first benefit of using a walk-behind troweling machine is the smooth finish. The second is that the trowel will draw out moisture and speed up the drying process.
Power Trowels for Commercial Use
Alongside the size differences there are plenty of other features to consider. Generally, the machines fall into two categories:
– commercial models, and
– pro models.
But, bigger isn’t always better when it comes to choosing the best power trowel. While some trowels can cover larger spaces in a shorter amount of time, you’ll also need an edger trowel for the edge of the slab.
The 24” model by Bartell is amongst one of the most favoured on the global market by concreters. This trowel machine can work against the edge of walls, small doorways and fixtures.
Before you purchase your power trowel take into account how long it will take you to get the job done.
A 46” inch trowel machine is perfect for tackling larger concrete pours and finishes. Every job a trader takes is different. But. it is important that you anticipate what kind of spaces you’ll need to cover on average.
With a 36” concrete trowelling machine you will be able to cover from 304 meters to 1000 meters per day. Yet, the amount of ground you are able to cover will depend on conditions.
The 30” trowel machine is the most versatile option, suitable both for large areas and edging. The 30” diameter can fit through most door frames and around most pluming or other floor fittings.
What to Consider When Buying a Power Float
Trowelling machines come in three different categories:
1. General Finishing – Recommended for traders who are first expanding their concrete business. Guaranteed to improve quality of the slab and production time and reduce costs.
2. High Horsepower Models – These models feature added weight and power providing extra torque. This will benefit traders operating in windy or hot conditions.
3. Variable Speed Trowels – Speed ranges vary from 20-200 rpm offering a wide-spread range.
When you’re looking for the best concrete trowelling machine, you’ll need to consider the flatness rating. There is a widespread acceptance on the F-rating system. The F-rating system should be a major consideration in your purchase decision.
If you need to cover more than 1000 meters per day, then ride-on trowels may be the best option.
