Multiquip recently introduced new ride-on trowels and reversible plates.
The new MQ Whiteman HTXD5i and STXD6i hydraulically driven ride-on power trowels come with 55-horsepower Yanmar 4TNV engines that meet EPA Tier 4 Interim standards.
The HTXD5i generates 20 percent more horsepower than previous designs. The HTXD5i attains rotor speeds up to 160 rpm exerting greater pounds per square inch on the floor to achieve flatter floors and a better final finish. The STXD6i attains rotor speeds of up to 130 rpm and twin six-blade rotors make it the preferred choice for high-production flatwork.
The all-new COMPAS compaction analyzing system for the Mikasa MVH306 and MVH406 series of reversible plate compactors helps contractors improve efficiency and maximize productivity while avoiding overcompaction. A series of LED lights indicates the progress made with each machine pass. As soil density changes, lights illuminate and inform the operator to either make additional passes or stop. Removable extension plates allow the plate to be adapted for various trench applications.
