How to choose the ride on power trowel
For the big size of concrete slabs, ride-on trowels have become indispensable. They are productive and can provide very flat finishes.
Normally, 30’, 36’, or 42’ trowels are available. There are many factors that affect floor flatness, but generally, the larger the machine, the easier it is to produce high floor flatness.
The following steps will teach you how to choose the best ride on power trowel for your concrete slabs.
The driving mechanisms have to allow for “back-shifting”—continuously variable transmissions (CVT) that allow the engine to operate at full speed while the trowel gears down to handle the load in difficult areas.
The engine horsepower is important,Machines must be able to provide enough power to the gearbox and still have enough to provide speed for the machine,Weight/power ratios are often used to compare machines. Ideal trowel engine is 30" 13HP engine, 36" 24HP engine , 42" 36HP engine
Generally, the heavier, the better. because you can wait longer before beginning finishing operations, allowing for a flatter floor. Ideal ride on power trowel weight:30" 300KGS, 36" 400KGS, 42" 500KGS.
The blades are the quick-wear parts, There should be easy access to the top of the rotors for removing bolts during blade changes.

The choke may need to be opened even when starting a warm engine. NOTICE: Cranking the engine for more than 5 seconds can cause starter damage. If the engine fails to start, release the key switch and wait 10 seconds before operating the starter again.
3. Allow the engine to warm up before operating the ride-on power trowel machine.
4. Push down on the throttle foot pedal to start the trowel
Step 3: To Stop
1. Return the control levers to their neutral position and release pressure on the throttle foot pedal.
