CF484The company has added a 48-inch, heavy-duty model to its line of Smooth Operator power trowels. The CF484 is available with three engine options: an 11- or 13-hp Honda or an 11-hp Robin. According to Stone, the CF484 operates at a faster blade speed—ideal for quickly burning in slabs. The extra-long, adjustable handle provides better control with less effort, and the trowel can be equipped with a fine-tuned pitch control or ProPitch control for fast adjustment.
