Briggs & Stratton is continuing its relationship with Multiquip to exclusively power its new MQ Whiteman LD6 ride-on trowel. Launching at World of Concrete 2020, the hydrostatic ride-on trowel is spec’d with the Vanguard 23.0 Gross HP Small Block V-Twin horizontal shaft engine featuring a brand new internal spline crank shaft.
“We’re excited to offer Multiquip customers another opportunity to enjoy Vanguard quality, reliability and durability by powering its new ride-on trowel,” said Mike Braun, Briggs & Stratton product manager, commercial power.
The new internal spline crankshaft offers additional benefits by allowing customers using hydraulic pumps to connect directly to the engine without the use of a coupling. “We developed the new internal spline crank shaft to increase ease of use and enhance the outstanding productivity Vanguard is known for,” Braun said.
The Vanguard 23.0 Gross HP with the new internal spline crankshaft will power Multiquip’s new Whiteman LD6—the only fully hydrostatic 6-ft. ride-on trowel on the market today.
“Incorporating a proportional servo-controlled pump and high torque drive motors, the LD6 can achieve performance levels unmatched in the industry by any 6-foot ride-on trowel,” said Kelly Panzeri, product manager, Mulitquip.
Proportional hydraulic steering enhances maneuverability, while the all new walk-around frame design simplifies maintenance and offers easy access to all serviceable components.
“We’ve had great results with Vanguard power solutions on our equipment, and it was an easy choice for Multiquip to continue the relationship by powering our new LD6 ride-on trowel with the Vanguard 23.0 Gross HP,” said Panzeri.
Vanguard also powers the Multiquip HHNG5 ride-on trowel with a Vanguard BIG Block 35.0 Gross HP and the WBH-16EAWDF Power Buggy with a Vanguard Small Block 18.0 Gross HP.
