Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin – Wacker Neuson’s booth at World of Concrete will once again be a show destination for the industry's fastest finishers. The sixth annual Wacker Neuson Trowel Challenge competition will take place during World of Concrete, January 21-24, 2014, Las Vegas, Booth #O30145. The ride-on trowel challenge tests the operator’s entire range of speed and accuracy skills as they maneuver around an obstacle course that weaves throughout the 2,400 square foot slab.
Also this year at Wacker Neuson's booth will be an additional slab so attendees not participating in the challenge can have more time to operate Wacker Neuson's line of walk-behind and ride-on trowels. For over 25 years, Wacker Neuson has been a leading manufacturer of walk-behind trowels. Significant contributions to the industry have been made to improve performance, comfort and safety.
As safety continues to be a paramount concern for job sites, contractors can see how Wacker Neuson's innovative walk-behind trowels were built with safety in mind. Wacker Neuson's CT walk-behind line offers a patented design built to provide extra protection from an out of control spinning handle. When the operator lets go of the handle, a gyroscopic safety sensor detects the motion of the handle and stops the engine before the handle reaches a 45-degree rotation. This engages the gearbox brake which will stop the handle rotation within 270 degree rotation. This proven system is the industry's best way to protect the operator from being struck by a runaway handle, according to the manufacturer.
