F36/4 Walk behind Trowel Operator comfort, safety and increased productivity are essential considerations in the MBW trowel. All handle materials are heavy gauge and do not require gusseting at critical fastening points. Each MBW trowel is balanced with regard to engine location for excellent performance and reduced operator fatigue. MBW’s heavier handle and stronger guard ring add up to extra safety. Our stop switch is fully enclosed and constructed of durable materials with wire and cables housed at their most vulnerable positions. Basic operating and safety instructions are prominently displayed. Solid throttle wire housed in low friction Teflon-lined casing for smooth operation and low maintenance. Galvanized, braided steel tilting cable is drawn over low friction pulleys within handle/clevis assembly and is securely attached to yoke at swiveling pin. No wear surfaces to snag or abraid cable. Handle, stop switch, rotating and stationary guardings industrial chrome plated for easy cleaning and corrosion resistance. Cast aluminum alloy gearbox housing features reinforced construction and cooling fins for rapid dissipation of heat. • Vertical Shaft Assembly has heavier flange and hubs for greater shaft support. • Heavy duty high load capacity bearings add to gear box longevity. • Worm shaft assembly precision machined from solid stock. • Hexagonal arm to blade surface is precision milled for near perfect blade alignment. • Heavy cast engagement yoke with wider construction and no wear points. • Pressure plate assembly utilizes greasable thrust bearings to provide little or no RPM variation. • Tilt arm assembly utilizes the industry’s heaviest material both in hex stock and larger diameter machined ends. • Spider assembly is 15% heavier than competitive models with thicker walls around all bores. • Industrial grade 45 degree grease fittings and hardware throughout. • Teflon lined steel bore inserts ensures long life.
