Atlas Copco designed the BG trowels with its QuickStop feature includes a belt clutch that immediately stops the blade rotation with zero-degree handle spin for maximum operator safety. In addition, QuickStop doesn’t kill the ignition when the trigger is released, allowing the speed to be adjusted without damaging the belt and clutch.

The trowels are equipped with Honda gas engines that deliver 5.5 to 9 horsepower. They offer variable speeds for a variety of tasks, from high-speed burnishing to low-speed, high torque floating. The TP models offer standard twist pitch for precise adjustment, while the QP versions are equipped with cog pitch for fast pitch. The pitch adjustment is conveniently located close to the operator’s hand for optimal ergonomics.

The BG power trowels feature a palm trigger in robust steel as well as foldable de-vibrated handles for enhanced comfort. Their detachable throttles can be moved from the left handle to the right.

The trowels are compact and relatively light, weighing as little as 132 pounds. This provides easy maneuverability on a wide range of projects, from sidewalks to driveways. It also allows operators to work close to walls and in limited access areas.

The BG 245 features a rubber edged floating protection ring to prevent damaging walls, which makes it ideal for use on indoor worksites where a wall or other obstacle exists. The BG 375 and BG 475’s larger size offers efficient operation on bigger, outdoor applications, such as driveways.
