Among the motor trowels, we can mention the manual and manned power trowel, each of which is different from each other. The manual power trowel is different from the carrier power trowel in terms of price, quality and efficiency, appearance and application.
Manual motor trowels are used more for medium and small operations, unlike the type of trowel.
Use of trowels in construction
In the process of concreting buildings, many trowels are used, each of which has its own specific application and performance and is used in specific situations.
From the most basic type of trowel, which is a hand trowel, to a hand-held power trowel and a carrier trowel, as the newest and most advanced type of trowels, each has its own uses.
However, in general, all of these trowels, from their simple to advanced models, have been designed and produced for a purpose and an important purpose, and that is something other than smoothing the surface on concrete or other materials, including It is not plaster.
Now, each construction worker may need each of these trowels according to the type of need in various construction operations and projects.
Therefore, despite the production of advanced examples of trowels, even the most basic types of trowels cannot be eliminated, and each of them should be used in its specific cases.
In this regard, the following differences are presented between two types of trowels, namely manual power trowel and carrier power trowel, to become more familiar with the differences between each of these power trowels.
The difference between a manual power trowel and a carrier trowel
Power trowel is a more advanced example of hand trowels that fall under the motor trowel subset. Motor trowels are also divided into two categories: manual and carrier trowels, each of which has its own characteristics and are different from each other.
Among the distinguishing features and differences between a hand-held butterfly trowel and a carrier are the following:
1- Differences in appearance and type of application
If you have noticed the appearance of a hand-held power trowel with a hand-held carrier trowel; you can feel the difference well. The type of application of each of these motor trowels is also different from each other.
In a manual power trowel - as the name implies - the operator manually guides it from place to place. However, in the case of a carrier trowel - whose name is quite clear - the operator, unlike the manual type of power trowels, can easily ride it like a car and turn it in any direction; Moves to advance the surface on the concrete more quickly and easily.
2- Differences in the type of need for them in different civil operations
In each of the different construction operations, according to the volume and size of each of the power trowels, a trowel can be selected according to that project.
Because in large operations, a power trowel is usually used, which is in larger dimensions and sizes, and its large volume accelerates the work process, and more concrete surfaces can be secured with more security without causing operator fatigue. Smoothed and polished and carried out the execution of this work with much higher quality. In other projects, the use of a manual power trowel is also used.
3- Difference in the type of blades and the degree of their angle
Hand-held power trowel and manifold are different in terms of the type of blades and their angle. In this way, the type of blades in the manual power trowel is available in three models of 60, 90 and 120 cm.
However, there is no such variety in a trowel. On the other hand, a power trowel is one of the other differences in the angle of grip of these two types of trowels, where the angle of the manual motor trowel is 15 degrees and that of a person trowel is 30 degrees.
4- Differences in the device lighting model and their application at different times
Another difference between a hand-held power trowel and a carrier trowel is that the carrier trowel starts with a starter and moves using the accelerator pedals built into them, as well as adjusting the rotation speed of the blades.
While the trowel is a hand-held motor trowel, it is turned on using the handle, and the operator must stand behind it, and this trowel can be used by using the gas handles and the rotation speed of the blades.
In addition, this type of motor trowel cannot be used at night. Because it does not have a night exposure system. While the power trowel has a night light system and is used during this period.
The amount of angle in motor trowels is ultimately to polish them.
5- Difference in power
Naturally, a motorized trowel has much more power than a manual motorized trowel. The power of a manual power trowel is 5 to 4 hp. While the motorized trowel has 24 horsepower, which shows their very high power compared to the manual motorized trowel.
6- Difference in price
The last difference between a hand-held butterfly trowel and a carrier trowel; in the price of each of them, according to the quality, power and efficiency of the motorized trowel, more money should be spent to buy them.
