Power Edger ?


Hi Guys. Do any of you know of and use a small power trowel to do the edges on a concrete floor ? I'm talking about where the floor meets the wall type edge not a decorative edge. I'm getting to old and my knees are shot after to many yrs. of doing them by hand. I see MBW & Multiquip offer a 24" power trowel but how good a job do they really do ? Any help for an old finisher would be great. Thanks, kdcon

We have a dynamark edging machine that we've had for 6-7 yrs, works great but it doesn't get all the way against the wall, gets within 1/2". If you have expansion joints it's great but with out expansion you still have to hit by hand a few times for that 1/2" area to be smooth. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the info. I don't think there is any other way to do the edges other than by hand. Makes sense as you would be beating the blades of any machine against the wall. Guess I will have to buy thicker knee pads. kdcon
