When it’s done, it’ll bring you a beer

Just kidding, but check out this radio controlled concrete power trowel. Guided by a hand-held unit, Tibroc’s CF-40 remote-control trowel maneuvers expertly around your slab, allowing you to achieve a smooth, flat finish without setting foot on the slab. The sturdy trowel finishes a width of 40 inches with each pass. From the radio-control unit, the operator easily guides the CF-40 forward, backward, right, left and sideto- side with two independent joysticks. Additionally, the rpm of the two motors and the pitch of the trowel is maneuvered, adjusted and manipulated from the hand-held control panel. The trowel is capable of finishing slabs up to several hundred yards in one day. It fits easily into a truck bed and weighs only 85 pounds, making slabfinishing a one-person job. The trowel is being offered at White Cap Construction Supply’s 75 retail stores, where you can sign up to get a demonstration on your own job site. You can also check out the trowel at the World of Concrete show, booth #C4365, and outdoors at booth #020948.
