walk behind trowel

The MQ Whiteman walk behind trowel has been at the centre of the concrete finishing world for over 80 years.

The Multiquip MQ Whiteman walk behind trowel range is today universally recognised as the best in the world. Able to deliver high horsepower, excellent rotor speeds and built-in durability, MQ Whiteman walk behind power trowels have been the favourite of concrete contractors for generations.

Top-quality components. Concrete contractors demand reliable equipment to get the job done right. The MQ Whiteman gearbox uses a heat-treated worm gear and composite bronze gear to ensure that your machine isn’t sidelined during a critical job.

Low cost of ownership. Our spider assembly uses high-strength wear plates made of trowel steel to prevent wear on key components. Repairing your trowel won’t cost you the earth as we make sure our replacement parts are priced correctly. Low cost, high wearing service parts which none of the competition have and why we believe makes our walk behind trowels the best in the industry.

Quick Pitch Handle system. Our patented spring-loaded design enables the operator to react rapidly to changing concrete conditions. Blade pitch is increased or decreased in 0.3cm increments by moving the latching lever back and forth. For infinite blade control of your walk behind trowel, we have the standard handle enabling you to adjust the pitch to your desired angle. Ergonomic handle design provides more comfort for the operator and isolation mounts on the handle ensure industry low vibration figures.

Multiquip cuts to the chase

brick saw

Multiquip UK had an unprecedented level of visitors during the recent exhibition at Olympia London. On show was the range of dustless saws that are currently available with the iQMS362 brick saw attracting huge interest.

With visitors encouraged to get hands-on, contractors and safety personnel alike were able to view first hand these amazing saws to get an idea for themselves how much value they can offer in terms of performance, build quality and the health and safety benefits. 

Traditionally a brick saw is a type of masonry saw that uses a diamond blade to cut through hard materials with the blade being cooled by water. With the iQMS362, no water is required thanks to the integrated dry cut technology.

The iQMS362 brick saw is fitted with a vacuum system, filter system and a dust containment tray. The 270-degree dust reduction system captures the dust within the blade guard, rear dust guard and a louvred table also captures downdraft via a high powered vacuum.

The dust then passes through a 3 stage filtration system capturing heavy debris, fine particles and superfine particles. The result is that this brick saw captures 99.5% of the dust and silica generated in a 20kg capacity containment tray.

In addition to the dust capture, the focused airflow from the vacuum keeps the blade cool to the touch during cutting. This means less heat, less friction, less warping and increased life of your saw blade.

The special Q drive saw blade cuts 40% faster than any other brick saw blade and can cut through a range of materials from soft manufactured stone to dense paving stones. This saw can cut through a 60mm x 100mm paving stone in three seconds. In fact, clients who have already purchased these machines are saving on wastage as the quality of the cut is so good, the offcuts can be used. This isn’t always possible with a traditional brick saw.

The iQ Power Management system with soft-start technology controls the power ramp-up for smooth uninterrupted operation, extending the life of your brick saw.

Imagine what this new technology could do for your company. It’s all the more reason why you have to see – and try – it for yourself.  We know you won’t be disappointed. In fact, we know you’ll be more than impressed.

Demonstrations are currently happening up and down the UK. We are confident the iQMS362 brick saw will provide the perfect investment for your business and your workforce. Less start-up time, less cleanup time, less wastage and most importantly, no harmful silica and dust to be inhaled by your workforce.
