Atlas Copco launches new ride-on trowel range
By Sarah Ann McCay30 July 2012
Atlas Copco has introduced a new range of three ride-on trowels designed for concrete floor specialists and rental companies.
The new 1880 mm BG740 is equipped with four blades per rotor. A torque converter allows the machine to move quickly on the concrete and sustain the same torque, which Atlas Copco says saves energy.
The 2336 mm BG910 trowel has larger rotor diameters and is equipped with five blades per rotor providing a more accurate surface in a shorter working time.
For big jobs and high demands, the new range is rounded off by the hydrostatic BG920. This model is fitted with a Kubota diesel engine, a heavy-duty gearbox, hydraulic steering and a mechanical drive. The BG 920 is also equipped with five blades per rotor.
All three products come with electrically powered water spray system and independent manual pitch control; lifting bridle for loading and unloading; adjustable seat and arm rests, raised foot paddles and a 12 V charger; and a removable front panel for easy maintenance. A range of accessories is also available, including discs, finishing and combination blades.
