Allen Engineering Corp. has developed two new riding trowels, redesigned another, and launched the Power Screed Pro. The MSP 415 riding trowel and HDX 740 hydraulic-powered riding trowel are the two new power trowels. The MSP 415 features a 35-horsepower air-cooled Vanguard gasoline engine, two 46-inch, five-bladed nonoverlapping rotors, and rotor speeds of up to 145 rpm.
Meanwhile, the HDX 740 is powered by a 60-horsepower Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, joystick power steering and joystick blade pitch controls. In addition, Allen has redesigned the popular MSP 460 riding trowel. Improvements include better rider responsiveness, improved visibility from the seat, more operator comfort and updated body style.
The 44-horsepower machine sports five-bladed 46-inch nonoverlapping rotors. Allen has also introduced the Power Screed Pro to its floater screed product line. Power Screed Pro is perfect for enclosed areas where gas fumes are not allowed. No gas or oil maintenance is required, and contractors can screed more than 2,000 square feet of concrete on one battery charge. Blade sizes range from 4 feet to 20 feet.
