Atlas Copco launches new range of ride-on trowels

2012-08-28

Atlas Copco has announced the launch of a new range of three ride-on trowels for concrete floor specialists and rental companies. The BG740, BG910 and BG920 were created for quicker movement on the concrete, resulting in a more accurate surface that saves both time and energy.

BG920

Atlas Copco’s new BG920 ride-on trowel


All three models feature mechanical drive for constant torque at any rotor speed, a throttle pedal that easily adjusts the speed of the dual rotors, and an independent, manual blade pitch that allows the operator better pitch control and accuracy. The new line is equipped with an electrically powered, water spray system that can hold up to six gallons.
 
A service-friendly frame with an adjustable seat and raised foot pedals come standard. Operators have clear line-of-sight from the cockpit, and all ride-on trowels are equipped with lighting for poor light conditions. A lifting bridle was engineered for easy loading and unloading.
 
The BG740 was designed with a 22 hp Honda GX690 air-cooled gas engine with electric start and manual lever steering. Both 36-inch rotors are equipped with four blades and provide quick and easy handling. A high speed of 135 rpm creates a quality finish, and removable front and rear screens are available for engine protection and quick service.
 
The BG910 has a 34 hp Briggs and Stratton air-cooled gas engine that offers high power with an electric start. The dual 46-inch rotors have five blades and a speed of 145 rpm for increased capacity and flatter floors. Super heavy-duty gear boxes are fan cooled for a longer life span, and the removable rear screen protects the engine and provides easy access for service.

The BG920 delivers more power and torque with a 44 hp Kubota diesel engine that can reach a top speed of 140 rpm. The hydraulic power steering offers smooth, accurate results. The six gallon diesel tank delivers approximately four hours of application. Each of the 46-inch rotors is equipped with five blades. A super heavy-duty gearbox and removable front and rear screens are available. Cruise control and arm rests enhance comfort in any application. A multifunction gauge was implemented to display glow plug and battery conditions as well as engine oil and water coolant levels.
