Achieve Smooth Concrete Finishing with Milwaukee MX Fuel Trowels
When it comes to concrete finishing, achieving a balanced and smooth surface is the top priority. For large jobs, many crews use gas-powered walk-behind trowels, which can be messy and expensive. Milwaukee is changing things up with two battery-powered walk-behind trowels on the MX Fuel platform— a 36-inch model and a 24-inch edging model. Should your concrete team make the switch? Let’s take a look at what they have to offer so you can decide for yourself.
