Through our acquisition of Wacker Neuson Group’s ride-on and walk-behind trowels, Husqvarna can support contractors the whole way through pouring concrete to a finished floor – no matter the type, size or ambition level of the project.

“Power trowels complement our current range in a great way, connecting the entire process from ground compaction to polished concrete floors, and fits well into our divisional strategy to grow our Concrete Surfaces and Floors business. With the addition of the ride-on trowels, we now have a complete offering for concrete surfacing and polishing, which will add great value to our customers,” says Henric Andersson, President Construction Division.

Optimal performance and control

The range includes three models of ride-on trowels with eight different variants. While the walk-behind trowels feature three different models with seven variants.

Husqvarna Hipertrowel™ is a system for polishing industrial floors from 5,000 sq ft and up.

Production starts

Starting early February, production of all CRT ride-on trowels and CT walk-behind trowels commenced at Husqvarna’s manufacturing facility in Olathe, Kan. The production of the trowel line was completely relocated from Menomonee Falls, Wis. to Olathe, Kan. throughout this past fall. The first Husqvarna trowels rolled off the production line in January. The new Husqvarna product range of ride-on and walkbehind trowels has successfully been launched in February at World of Concrete 2020 in Las Vegas.
