Tamping rammer VS Plate compactor

Plate compactors and tamping rammer are the two most common types of compactors. While they both aim to establish a strong and stable foundation on any construction site, they differ in their basic characteristics. If you are considering renting or purchasing a compactor for your project, you must understand their features and differences. In both cases, in this article we will explain and compare the two machines in detail.

Plate compactor

Plate compactor is one of the most widely used equipment in the construction industry, it can be used in different environments. It performs the task of compacting and compacting soil in different spaces. The amount of tapping of the device and the power required is one of the most important points that such rollers are responsible for, ultimately resulting in very high resistance to soil and other materials. These units are made of steel, showing their high strength and capability.

Worker in use vibratory plate compactor for path construction. Plate compactor for compaction sand. Industrial equipment with a combustion engine.
Tamping rammer

The rammer is another tool widely used in the construction industry and has the same type of jumping as the kangaroo. These types of compactors also take care of the percussion and compaction, and by hitting the ground, make it a one-handed operation.

The difference between plate compactor and compactor

Now that we’re familiar with plate compactors. As you know, each of these devices is designed and built for a specific purpose. But there are some good differences between them.

Different compactions type

In these devices, the center of the compacted or impacted soil is different. Plate compactors use a reciprocating motion to compact the ground with a low-amplitude, high-frequency vibration. The rammer hits the center of the soil vertically by bumping and jumping. Thus, although the two types of devices differ in their type of operation, their respective functional types and efficiencies are similar.

The difference in the way of operation

Regarding the operation of both types of equipment, it must be admitted that a plate compactor is easier to operate than a tamping rammer. When the plate compactor starts, the whole machine will automatically move forward due to vibration, you only need to hold the handle to follow the machine forward. The impact rammer has a large jump range and a large impact force, so you need to be careful not to let the machine fall over at any time during use.

How to use the difference in different places

The tamper applies its force vertically to the center of the soil and does so with greater force. And the impact rammer has a small footprint, and is more compact and flexible than the plate type machine, which is why it is more suitable for working in narrow spaces such as pits and passages than the plate type compactor.

However, if the soil has a sticky layer and small particles; a plate compactor is more suitable. Because the vibration of the plate compactor will reduce the gap between the particles.

Soil type

The first fundamental consideration is the soil type of the construction site. Typically granular soils and gravels, or cohesive soils. These two types of soil require two different types of compaction equipment. Since granular soils do not contain clay and are mostly composed of clearly visible particles, they do not have any cohesive strength. Since these types of soils respond well to vibrations, plate compactors are best for compacting them properly. In addition, vibratory plate compactors have a wider vibration transmission area. That’s why they work best for better sedimentation of granular materials.
On the other hand, cohesive land contains clay material. A specific amount of moisture is required to compact them properly. The impact rammer has a smaller ramming plate but a large impact force, which can be better compacted during tamping operations, and is the best choice for working on cohesive soils. They’re good for 13% moist soil, so you can rely on them for better compaction on clay-based soils, and they’ll also help you solidify deeper soils than a slab compactor.

Different sizes and size differences.

From the size of the machine, the volume of the plate compactor is larger than that of the impact compactor. Therefore, the compaction area of the plate compactor is relatively large, and the overall efficiency is relatively high. But if you have higher requirements for compaction, then a rammer is more suitable.

Tips for using tamping rammer

How to choose suitable one?

There are various types of rammers on the market. According to different power, it can be divided into gasoline impact rammer, diesel impact rammer, and electric impact rammer. Rammers range from 2,000 pounds per square foot to 4,000 pounds per square foot. The shell of the impact rammer is made of ordinary cast steel or aluminum. The aluminum body is more durable and light in weight, but the cost is also higher.

What do I need to do to receive a new machine?

When you receive your new machine, please unpack it to check that all parts are in good condition. We generally use wooden boxes for the packaging of impact rammers, and the whole machine is installed without any installation operation, but please add enough gasoline before the first use.

The engine won’t start

There are many reasons why Jump Jack and tamping rammer cannot be activated. But most of the time it’s an engine problem. The first step is to check that there is enough gasoline in the gasoline engine. Usually, rammer engines have low oil level sensors on them, so if there is not enough oil, the rammer won’t start. Another component to check is the spark plugs. If you seem to be pulling the recoil starter multiple times and nothing happens, make sure to check that the spark plugs are dry and working properly. You can unscrew the spark plug and place it in the spark ignition coil, pulling the pull disc repeatedly while holding the spark plug against some metal. If you see sparks, the plug is working. If there is no spark, replace the spark plug.

Engine stall

There are several reasons for the engine to stall. First of all, it is necessary to consider the stall caused by the engine blockage. Two inspections need to be done. One is to check whether the gasoline is left in the engine for too long, and the gasoline that is not cleaned for a long time will become It is sticky, so it needs to be cleaned regularly. Second, clean the air filter. The impact rammer usually works in a dusty environment. If the air filter is blocked, the air cannot pass through, and the engine cannot be started normally.

Machine body oil leakage

Check the bellows to see if there are perforations in the bellows, and if so, they need to be replaced. Check the bellows and drain plug on the engine. Make sure to tighten correctly. Look for air gaps and locate the problem based on the oil leak.

How to maintain tamping rammer

Regular maintenance of the rammer can effectively improve the service life of the machine and stabilize the performance of the machine. Hope the following suggestions can help you use the impact rammer better.

Change the air filter regularly: The dusty workplace where rammers usually work puts extra stress on the engine. Clean or replace the air filter regularly to avoid engine blockage. It is recommended to clean the air filter if it has not been used for 25 hours. If you find that the sponge in the air filter is damaged, please replace it in time. This is a simple operation, just find the air filter on the top of the gasoline engine, unscrew the cap to replace it.

Close fuel valve: Be sure to close the fuel valve after each use of the rammer. Making this a routine will help avoid flooding the rammer’s engine when not in use or stored in a truck.

Rammer spring lubrication: Make sure the internal spring of the tamper is well lubricated. Without lubrication, the integrity of the equipment can quickly deteriorate. You can check the oil level through the oil window at the bottom of the fuselage. If the oil level is low or cannot be seen, please replenish it in time.

If you plan to not use the machine for a long time, please do the following

  • Drain the fuel tank completely.
  • Check that the throttle handle is in the idle position, then start and run the engine until the fuel enters.
  • The carburetor is completely drained.
  • Change the engine oil and store the engine according to the procedures in the engine manual.
  • If storing the rammer, keep it in a clean, dry place where it will not be knocked over, and cover it with a cloth.

Different compaction equipments

Why do you need the compaction equiment

Soil compaction is an important part of the construction process. Usually in different construction projects, it is often necessary to excavate the ground, ditch and other operations, which leads to loose soil, air and water can easily enter, and there is no stable structure. There are cracks in the walls and potholes in the road. Soil compaction actually increases the density of the soil by reducing the void space between soil particles or the amount of air in the soil. So compacted soil has less space, higher unit weight, higher resistance and greater stability. Provide the necessary flat foundations, provide key support for construction foundations, sidewalks, roads or other building structures, and reduce the possibility of settlement of buildings, roads, parking lots, etc. after the completion of the project.

Different types compaction equipment

Compactors apply force to the ground to increase soil density. Some devices only apply static forces, pressures created by the machine’s own weight and configuration. This static force has the greatest effect on the surface material, and the depth of action on the foundation is limited. Other equipment applies vibration or shock to increase its compaction effect. These machines use a mechanism, usually driven by an engine, to increase the downward force beyond the static weight of the machine.

Tamping rammer

Rammer. The tamper is driven by a small engine or motor to generate a high impact pressure force. The engine of the machine drives the internal parts of the machine to move the crankshaft, drives the springs in the machine to shrink the upper and lower parts of the machine, and provides power to the piston through two sets of springs to bounce to the ground. generate impact. The operator moves the machine by hand to realize the compaction of the road surface, and the machine occupies a relatively small area, so the impact rammer can easily enter some narrow and obstacle working areas.

The tamper delivers high-amplitude shocks at a frequency of 500 to 750 strokes per minute, providing the shear force needed to compact cohesive soils.

Vibratory plate compactor

Vibrating plates produce low-amplitude, high-frequency vibrations optimal for compacting granular soils. They use a gasoline or diesel engine to drive one or more eccentric weights to generate vibrations in the frequency range of 2500 to 6000 vpm.

The most basic vibratory plate compactor only travels forward, and its forward motion is driven by the vibrating plate itself. Some models are equipped with a water tank, which can be used for asphalt pavement. The use of water can prevent the asphalt from sticking too much to the rammed plate.

There are also larger and heavier vibratory plate compactors. Overweight machines make it difficult to move, so these larger units are usually reversible walking, making it easy to move forward and backward. The heavier tamper plates and counterweights also increase their compaction force, which is better than regular machines.

Worker use vibratory plate compactor compacting asphalt at road repair

Walk behind road roller

Walk-behind rollers are ideal for patching asphalt, compacting roads and other small projects. Walk-behind rollers typically use smooth rollers to quickly and efficiently compact and level the substrate of parking lots and concrete warehouse slabs. Smooth rollers use static pressure, vibration and shock to compact materials such as gravel, rock, sand and asphalt. The double-barreled walk-behind model can handle most jobs. Rollers come in a variety of sizes and weights. Long roads require heavy duty rollers – with single or double wheels, ranging in weight from 1 ton to several tons, for compacting gravel and asphalt bases. This heavy-duty is more convenient and efficient when projects require large, flat surfaces in granular soils.

How to choose the suitable compaction machine

Know your soil

The first step in choosing the right compaction equipment is to determine the soil type on the job site. Different soils use different types of machines. Compactable soils are generally granular or cohesive. Granular soils such as sand or gravel, because of the inconsistent particle size, are best done through vibratory compaction, which works by rearranging the particles that are “shaken” together to get closer to each other, increasing density and eliminating any voids. For cohesive soils, compaction is like pinching them together, so a heavy duty roller is a better choice.

Know your site

The next step in finding the right compactor is knowing your site. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to compaction equipment. If your work site has cables and other lines buried in the ground, then it is not recommended that you use a heavy machine such as a road roller. You also need to consider the size and topography of the job site. Rollers are more efficient and work better if the work space is more spacious. However, the work site is relatively narrow and there are obstacles. Impact rammers or flat plate compactors are more suitable. The light and compact body is convenient for movement in these sites.

Know your machine

Like all equipment, finding the right machine for a particular job helps ensure the most economical and efficient results. So you need to know enough about the equipment you already have, understand their intended use, performance, use environment, etc., so that they can bring you the most benefit.

What is plate compactor and how to choose right one?

Why do you need one plate compactor

The quality of a building depends on its foundation. Whether it is laying parking lots, roads, building foundations, courtyards, etc., a solid foundation is required, and compaction is one of the most critical parts of any building. Without proper soil compaction, you can experience foundation erosion, slab cracks, and pipe leaks and ruptures. This leads to unnecessary maintenance costs and structural failures. Compaction is the process of using vibration to remove air from the substrate, and as soil particles are compressed, the pore space between them is reduced, resulting in soil compaction. Compacted soils have fewer macropores, less total pore volume, and higher density, and a compacted ground can avoid water infiltration or pressure sinking.

For general ground compaction, plate compactor is a commonly used machine in pavement engineering and can be used for various soil, gravel, asphalt and other pavements. It applies force through weight and compacts the soil through violent vibrations rather than pounding. This way, the gravel and soil are compacted together and are more resistant to settlement, frost heave and erosion.

What is plate compactor

Plate compactor is a type of construction equipment used to level and level the land. It consists of heavy steel plates mounted on the base of the machine. Most use motor-driven vibrators. There are also motor-driven types in the market. Mowers are somewhat similar. Plate compactors are mostly hand-push type, which use vibration or shock to flatten the land under the plate, and are used to compact loose materials such as granular soil, gravel, small aggregates and hot asphalt mixtures, and are mostly used for large flat The work area is compacted, such as repairing streets, laying asphalt or concrete surfaces, etc., in preparation for paving, landscaping, or other work.

How does the plate compactor work?

When the plate compactor is running, the gasoline engine or the electric motor drives the vibration exciter, so that the steel plate at the bottom of the machine moves up and down rapidly, generating centrifugal force. The combination of vibration and the weight of the steel plate forces the soil below to be compacted even tighter, creating a stable foundation. Plate compactors are best for granular soil types, such as those with a high sand or gravel content. There are two main types of plate compactors, unidirectional and reversible. The operation of these two compactors is similar, the main difference is that reversible compactors can move back and forth, while unidirectional compactors can only move forward. Also, reversible compactors are generally larger and heavier than unidirectional machines. In some cases, it is beneficial to add some water to the soil before using the plate compactor, such as asphalt pavement. Proper moisture prevents asphalt from sticking to the rammer, so some models are designed with a water tank feature.

How to use the plate compactor

Step 1: Flatbed compactors are very easy to start. First, put it in the correct position, keep the machine upright and forward, and turn the “ON/OFF” switch on the side of the machine to the “ON” position. Adjust the handle of the machine to a comfortable position

Step 2: Now let’s take it outside and light it up, if you cold start the engine you need to open the choke and move the choke lever at the rear of the machine to the right to open the fuel filler. If you start a machine that has just worked, you don’t need to use the choke, or you only need to open the choke partially.

Step 3: Please control the machine well before starting, and at the same time make sure the throttle is in the idle position to avoid sudden start and loss of control. Pull on the rope, but don’t worry it won’t start right away, as it may take a few more pulls. After the engine starts, let it idle for 15 or 20 seconds and close the choke.

Step 4: When you’re ready to start compacting, try cranking up the throttle, which you can do with the throttle switch on the machine handle, to a vibration frequency you’re comfortable with, but make sure you’re holding the flat compactor firmly as it will start to move away you.

Step 5: Once you’ve done your work, now turn off the throttle switch and turn the switch on the side to the off position

Step 6: Be very careful as the flatbed compactor can be very hot after use! If you need to add oil, you will need to wait until the engine has cooled before adding oil.

Choose the right machine

Earlier in this article we have mentioned that there are two main types of flatbed compactors: forward and reversible. Forward plate compactors run forward and are good at compacting granular soils, such as sand or gravel, in the 8 to 12 inches range. Scope. These units are usually small and light, weighing around 60 to 120 kg, so they are easy to operate next to obstacles and around tight worksites. Front plate compactors can deliver up to 20KN of centrifugal force and frequencies of approximately 5600RPM, enabling them to compact thinner layers of material while minimizing the risk of over-compaction that can compromise material integrity. Front plate compactors move at a speed of 6-16m/min per hour, so they are suitable for small repair and maintenance work on roads and driveways. Some front plate compactors are also designed with water systems and water tanks that can be used not only for soil gravel material, but also for compacting asphalt surfaces. Machines with water tanks provide water to the rammed plates at work, minimizing the risk of bitumen sticking to the plates and helping to produce high-quality mats.

Some heavy-duty flatbed compactors are ideal when dealing with medium to deep granular materials 16 to 32 inches thick. Because the machines are heavy and cannot turn or turn around as easily as smaller machines, heavy-duty flatbed compactors are Generally reversible, it can run forward or reverse, and the machine can easily exit when entering a narrow work area or near obstacles. These units usually provide high centrifugal force – some as high as 90KN. These properties are very effective in reaching deep into the soil for fast and efficient compaction. Reversible plate compactors are also ideal for compacting pebbles. Like all flatbed compactors, they are a versatile alternative to drum rollers, being compact, small and easy to operate, and they are also less expensive to purchase, making them a more economical option.

Punching and shearing machine

In this article I would like to introduce new type of multi-functional steel processing machine – combined punching and shearing machine. If you are a hardware supplier, or a professional steel processing company, then I think you should need one.

What is punching and shearing machine?

Most of the traditional steel processing methods are carried out using stamping machines, such as turret stamping machines, CNC stamping machines, etc. These machines are cumbersome and expensive. The premise of investing in it is mainly to have enough business support to make it non-stop every day. Production benefits you. Compared to these larger machines, our punching and shearing machines are compact, functional and cost less.

Punching and shearing machine integrates a variety of steel processing functions, including metal shearing, plate shearing, and punching, etc. It is simple to operate, consumes low energy consumption, and uses low maintenance costs. Effective It saves money and is an ideal equipment for metal processing in modern manufacturing; it is widely used in steel structure processing, as well as mechanical processing, mechanical shell and small parts processing. The equipment has a compact structure, complete functions, and simple operation. Safe to use.

The machine consists of motor, body, transmission system, clutch and other parts. The motor drives the pulley to rotate, further drives the eccentric shaft, and the cutter seat connected to the eccentric shaft reciprocates in the body, so that the blade punches and cuts the steel bars, steel bars, etc.

Different founctions of the punching and shearing machine

Punching

Punching holes in steel plates can be used in many places, such as the manufacture of hardware, as mounting holes, etc. The machine can make round holes or long holes, which are suitable for different Steel plate punching can be used in many places, such as hardware manufacturing, installation holes, etc. The machine can punch round holes or long holes, which are suitable for different occasions. And if you need to punch holes of different sizes, the machine can also change the die. Please refer to the machine parameter table at the end of the article for the punching size of different machines.

Cutting

The machine has multiple working positions for cutting functions, which are suitable for different sheets, and can also cut different angles and shapes. The machine can cut a V-shaped angle or a right angle on the channel steel angle iron. It can also be used for cutting operations. For steel plates, the machine has a professional position for cutting, and it can also cut steel bars. But due to the different machine sizes of different models, not every machine is fully equipped with these functions, you can tell us your needs to customize.

Different models of the punching and shearing machine

There are 5 models of machines, QA32-8–QA32-16. The models of punching machine mainly depend on the thickness of the sheet to which it is applied. For example, the QA32-8 model can process plates with a maximum thickness of 8mm, whether it is angle steel, channel steel or steel plate, the thickness should be less than 8mm. Therefore, the thickness of the sheets used can be distinguished according to the model of the machine.

How to choose the suitable machine?

First of all, you need to determine the thickness of the sheet you are using, and you can choose the appropriate type of punching and shearing machine according to the thickness of your sheet. For example, if your plate thickness is 8mm, you can choose QA32-8 type, if the thickness is 9mm/10mm, you can choose QA32-10 type. At the same time, we will provide you with a limit value for each function of the machine. Below this limit value, you can customize the various functional molds equipped on the machine.

Concrete bull float

In the previous article on the power trowel machine, we talked about using the power trowel machine when the concrete starts to harden and people can stand on it, so what tools do we need to use to level the concrete before using the trowel? In this article, we will discuss what other machines and tools are used to level the concrete after it has been poured.

What is concrete float?

The float is one of the commonly used ground hand tools and is a very important tool used in the concrete finishing process. Used to eliminate highs and lows in concrete and slightly embed large aggregate particles immediately after stripping. These bull floats also create more concrete slurry on the board to help finish later. The bull float is long handle float, which is used when standing. Combining handles of different lengths allows the dresser to reach farther.

Different kinds of the concrete float

Hand Floats and Darby.

After using the bull float to smooth out most of the concrete slab, the hand float is used to finish the floating process. The hand trowel can get into edges or around obstacles such as pipes, drains, around corners, that protrude from the slab so those areas match the rest of the slab. Hand floats create a smooth surface by pushing any exposed aggregate down. The hand float is a more precise tool than the bull float for floating harder to reach areas. It also removes imperfections left behind from the bull floating process.

A darby is more like an enlarged version of hand floats, It is typically long and flat with one or two handles. The darby is used for smoothing out poured concrete after screeding and bull floating. Darbies level ridges of concrete, fill voids, and push exposed aggregate down.

Bull float.

Aluminum

Aluminum floats have many of the same characteristics as magnesium floats, but they are roughly 30% heavier and 30% stronger. Like magnesium, aluminum opens the pores of fresh concrete, allowing bleed water to evaporate. Although many contractors prefer a certain float for each type of concrete, aluminum has no real specialty or added benefits in any common situation.

Magnesium

Magnesium floats are lighter than aluminum floats, but are welcomed by professionals. Magnesium smooth the surface of fresh concrete and opens pores for proper evaporation, and neither aluminum nor magnesium will pull on the concrete surface like wood or resin tools do. Most magnesium floats are extruded or cast, so the float is the same profile from start to finish.

Magnesium aluminum alloy

Magnesium-aluminum alloy trowel combines the advantages of the above two trowels. Compared with aluminum trowels, it is lighter in weight, but more wear-resistant and has a longer service life.

Fresno float.

Fresno is very similar to bull float, with a long handle and a blade made of stainless steel or manganese steel. With rounded corners, but square corners can also be used. The handle is attached to the blade via an adjustable or swivel bracket. The fresno is a steel trowel and should be used like a hand-held steel trowel.

Electrical Fresno float.

Now there is an upgraded version of the large trowel, the machine is equipped with a small vibration motor, and the vibration smoothes. Compared with ordinary tools, the electric large trowel can better trim the concrete surface through vibration, discharge the air in the concrete, and fill the concrete. Holes and depressions in.

When to use the bull float

Concrete is poured into the formwork and compacted or reinforced. Initial trimming begins with screeding, a process that involves dragging a long ruler or screed across the concrete surface to level it with the frame. The concrete is then floated and left to sit. Pulling the flat surface of the bull float onto the concrete surface, embedding the large aggregate, smoothing the surface and removing the highs and lows, as flat as possible will prevent premature sealing of the cement surface. Bull flotation is done on freshly poured concrete during the initial trimming process, and then surface water emerges, called a letdown. Floating by hand or with an electric float is the last process after draining and drying. Float eliminates minor imperfections and compacts the surface mortar, ready for any additional finishing procedures.

Although the trowel is a tool with a very simple structure, it plays a very important role in the laying of concrete floors. Choosing a suitable and easy-to-use trowel can help you quickly build a perfect concrete slab.

How to use the power trowel?

A concrete finisher is an essential tool we need for finishing concrete, especially when dealing with larger concrete slabs. A finisher will help you build a flatter concrete slab and a smoother finish. But the first thing you need to know is not how the start the machine, but when is the proper time to use it.

When to use the machine?

The very first thing you need to figure out when you can put the trowel on the concrete slab.

The right time is when the concrete has set enough that a person can stand on it but not sink in, the footprint depth should not exceed 1/8”, and you can walk on it firmly without the top layer sticking to the boot, then it is ready to power float.

Preparation before use.

Before you start your machine, there are a few key things to keep in mind.

1. Make sure there is enough gasoline and stroke oil in the engine. We have encountered many cases of gasoline engine damage, which are often not caused by quality problems or bump damage, but by carelessness during use.

2. Another thing you need to check is your gearbox oil. You can observe the oil level through the oil window on the side of the gearbox. The right amount of oil can protect your transmission and machine with a long service life, usually the oil level should reach half of the oil window.

3. Check whether the blade is fixed on the spider shaft, adjust the angle of the blade, check the brake cable, and whether the accelerator switch is connected well.

After the trowel is started, there will be a lot of rotational inertia, so turn the throttle at low position first and maintain a stable standing position before you starting it.

Start the walk behind power trowel.

Pull the recoil cord firmly. Once the engine is started, quickly turn the choke to the right. As the engine of the trowel is started, the blade can be rotated.

You can change the speed at which the blade spins by controlling the throttle switch on the handle and you will see the machine start to move. Controlling the direction of movement of the trowel is tricky, press the handle down and the machine moves to the right, lift the handle slightly and the machine moves to the left. But be careful not to use too much force to move the machine too suddenly to lose control.

Start the ride-on power trowel.

As with walk-behind trowels, you need to inspect the trowel arm and blade and properly lubricate the trowel before using the electric trowel. The machine has a water spray system, also check the water and fuel levels. Adjust the seat so that you are in a comfortable position. The gasoline engine of the ride-on trowel is electric start, so just turn the key to start the gasoline engine, but don’t forget that you need to depress the flame out pedal at the same time. Different from the walk-behind machine, the movement of the ride-on machine relies on two guide rods, pushing the two gears forward at the same time, and pulling back the two rods at the same time. When the right side is pulled back, the left side is pushed forward.

Before stopping, please reduce the speed and slowly depress the flame out pedal to stop the machine.

Using the power trowel to remove the “hills” and “valley”.

Typically, several passes with the float pan are required before troweling a concrete floor with a blade, the machine will smooth out the protrusions in the concrete and fill in the hollows .During the troweling process with the blade, the concrete will gradually harden, so it is necessary to constantly adjust the angle of the blade.

Now I think you have a basic knowledge of the power trowel, if you are ready to own one, please contact us.




    What is power trowel and why do you need one?

    For the concrete trowel, I think someone are very familiar with it and even operate this machine, but I think more people have only seen the trowel, but know very little about it.

    The trowel has a wide range of applications. It is used in the troweling of concrete floors in various places, and plays an important role in the treatment of concrete floors such as warehouses, factories, squares, airports, and frame buildings.

    What is the power trowel machine?

    The power trowel is a tool for rough or fine troweling of concrete surfaces, It is usually electric or fuel powered.

    The surface of machine construction is smoother and flatter than the surface of manual construction, which can greatly improve the compactness and wear resistance of the concrete surface, and the efficiency of machine construction is dozens of times higher than that of manual construction.

    What is power trowel structure?

    For walk-behind trowels, you need operate the handle to move the troweling disc. And the handle is equipped with throttle switch and the flame out switch, it is easy for you to accelerate the machine or stop it.

    The engine is the power source of the machine and it drives the gearbox shaft.

    The gearbox is between the engine and the working disc, it it more like a power transmission box, It is driven by the gasoline engine and further drives the blades to rotate.

    The blade is fixed on the cross shaft and is driven to rotate by the cross shaft.

    The protection ring not only protects the machine from damage, but also protects the user from high-speed rotating blades.

    Why do you need a power trowel machine?

    First of all, the machines will save you a lot of time. Compared to traditional manual concrete trowels, the machines rely on fuel engines to drive the blades to trowel the ground faster and better, this means that you will complete your jobs with greater efficiency.

    And now many constructions have higher requirements for the flatness of the concrete surface, and it is difficult to meet the requirements by manual plastering, but the power trowel can do it easily.

    How to choose one suitable power trowel machine?

    There are two common power trowel machines, the walk behind type and ride-on power trowel, and both come in different sizes. Therefore the main factor to consider when choosing a trowel is the size of your project. If you undertake constructions such as large shopping malls, parking lots, warehouses etc., the riding type is more suitable for you, because it has two working disc, his work efficiency is twice that of the walk-behind type, and you don’t have to walk back and forth on the floor, making the job easier.

    But your still need the walk behind machine, as the ride-on machine is a little bulkier when working on the concrete edges.

    If your project is primarily indoor work, or other small areas of concrete, the walk-behind may be more suitable for you, it is more flexible to use and can access small areas. And it will not cost you too much money.
