    That concrete trowel needs cleaning too

    Published on 8 March 2019, Friday, 4:33 AM

    Trowelling machines are essential for anyone performing new concrete slab work.

    With these large power tools, anyone can get professional-quality concrete anywhere. Often, the best trowels will be designed with the operator in mind, offering smooth-rolling travel wheels and other options that make the job easier.

    But once the concrete is dry and you're packing up your tools, don't forget to take proper care of your troweller. If you don't focus on your machine's maintenance, you can expect that it, in turn, won't take good care of your concrete projects.

    An ill-kept troweller may operate erratically, resulting in divots and scrapes on the concrete floor. If blades aren't kept even, it can also result in uneven patterns embedded across the floor.

    Also be on the lookout for any leaking oil from the motor. If this liquid leaks during the trowelling process, it can affect how the concrete takes a coating later on.

    If you hire trowelling machines from Kennards, you can be sure all products will be well maintained and cared for, and ready for use. These products also come with guides and instruction sheets that ensure all operators use the device correctly.
