J. Dewayne Allen, CEO and chairman of Allen Engineering Corporation (AEC), passed away on Nov. 15, 2020. A civil engineer by education, Mr. Allen worked on the construction of Interstate highways in Missouri and Illinois in the late 50's and early 60's.
Allen announced the debut of the RP235 and RP245 polishing riders. The RP235 and RP245 were designed with the high volume concrete polisher in mind.
These riding trowels come ready to achieve high rotor speeds and maintain high torque while polishing, and they also come equipped with retractable dolly jacks that ensure transportation indoors can be done with ease, as well as allowing for quick change of polishing pads.
As a business leader, Jay Allen recognizes the importance of putting together well-conceived plans, projections and forecasts to position his company for sustained success over the long term.
But every once in a while, a situation comes along where the best course of action calls for keeping it simple, staying calm and flexible and – at times – making decisions on the fly.
Allen announced the debut of its newest wheel buggies: the AW16 and the AW21.
The AW16 is a wheel buggy that comes with electric start or recoil start options and allows the operator to place materials with precision.
The AW16 is equipped with a large 16 cu.
Allen Engineering has extended the track buggy lineup by offering a battery powered option with its new AT14E fully electric track buggy. Just like its new fully electric wheel buggy, the AT14E was designed to compete with existing track buggies but have a more thoughtful impact on the environment with its three electric motors.
Allen's MSP465 riding trowel is a mechanically-driven, 8 ft. (2.4 m) class ride-on power trowel that is powered by a powerful 57 hp Kubota liquid-cooled gasoline engine.
The MSP465 was designed with the high volume flatwork concrete contractor in mind.
Allen's HDX600 riding trowel is a hydraulically-controlled, 8 ft. (2.4 m) class ride-on power trowel that is powered by a powerful 50 hp Hatz liquid-cooled diesel engine.
The HDX600 was designed with the high volume flatwork concrete contractor in mind.
Allen, a leader in concrete finishing equipment, announced the debut of the all-new 2020 HDX780T4 riding trowel.
The HDX780 was designed with the high volume flatwork concrete contractor in mind. This riding trowel comes with digital readouts for accurate fuel levels and diagnostics, and a large 18 gallon fuel tank for longer run times.
Allen, a leader in concrete finishing equipment, announced the debut of the MSP475 riding trowel. The new power steering machine is a mechanically-driven, 8 ft. class ride-on power trowel that is powered by a powerful 57 hp Kubota liquid-cooled gasoline engine.
Allen Engineering Corp. recently announced that Brad Ketcherside will be returning to the AEC. Ketcherside will take on the role of territory sales representative of the Pacific Northwest territory (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Alaska, and western Canada).
Allen, a leader in concrete finishing equipment, announced the debut of the 2019 PRO430E edger walk-behind trowel. This new trowel features a rotating edge ring that is perfect for troweling along the edges of walls or around protruding pipe and conduit, according to the manufacturer.
