Husqvarna Power Trowels

Husqvarna Power Trowels

When it comes to the final finishing of a concrete slab, power floating will achieve the best possible results. Using a power trowel will create a hard skin on the surface of the concrete, as well as sealing and smoothing it. A power trowel will not level concrete, though. The hard skin on the surface […]

Husqvarna Concrete Floats

While concrete placing is rarely straightforward, placing a slab with an intention to polish it is even more difficult. To achieve the popular rustic-style finish, the slab must be carefully floated and power floated. Fortunately, Husqvarna’s new generation of groundwork tools are available to make smooth work of the process. Floating concrete is vital to […]
