Great machine. Used the machine twice and already won't leave
home without it !!!

We save a lot of time with this machine.
We use the Power Pole Fnisher to trowel precast wall panels that we pour in our factory. A typical pour is 10' wide by 150'
long. A four person crew can finish 1 hour faster with the power pole finisher compared to a regular machine. We estimate
the machine pays for itself in about 3 weeks because of the time saved each day. This machine is great! My goal is to have
one machine for each precast bed (about 10 total). We have 1 machine now and 2 on the way. If the machines perform well this
summer we will be looking for several more.

"I ordered your power trowel
with some trepidation. A similar priced "weed whacker" power screed is in our inventory and seldom wanted or used.
On receipt of your trowel, I vowed to take it to the next job where it wouldn't be needed for finishing final approaches to
a large pole-barn job. All the work was to be "broom finish" - a no brainer, 4 part, 6 yard job.
Well, the two workers are trainees and I am in my 7th decade and am a retired Airline
Captain with more ability to land a wounded 768 than finishing concrete.
The job started to go south. The concrete was gnarly and stiff 94 slump (part of the work involved a slope)
and I was fading fast trying to bull-float it out. I looked down at your "pole trowel", still a virgin (named Belinda
after an old fairy tale regarding a dragon slaying a young girl). She looked up at me and said "send me in boss".
I took the bait
desperation than hope, I slipped the float blades on the, attached the poles and "fired 'er up". At a slow speed
she quickly flattened what a weight loaded fresno could not correct but also left the perfect finish for the broom.
The levity of leaning over to pick the trowel up, with groans already in the air, to
find that one guy already was holding it in one hand, caused great humor.
A truly stunning piece of well built, well welded and well engineered piece ofequipment.
My advice to anyone doing flatwork - "if you don't have one or more of these trowels, you
aren't a business man - you're a hobbyist stuck in the last century."

Purchased it about
a year ago. I'm a general contractor so I pour jobs about once a month. Since last year, I took (Bertha) to the
first few slabs, but since have left her home and take Cinderella to each dance since. I have no problems
with the unit. It has cut my time on the job and gives my finish a smoother and flatter finish. My competitors
have even hired me to pour for them because we are getting up there and it's not as easy as it used to be.

We find the Power Pole Finisher very useful on our big stamped jobs to break the surface with the floats,
and the final trowel before the stamping.
