POLISHING WITH POWER TROWELS—Can it replace planetary grinding equipment?

Planetary grinders are the standard equipment used to create beautiful polished concrete floors. But recently, there’s been a move to equip riding power trowels with diamond tools and use them to polish concrete floors, and for good reason—a power trowel can polish 5 times faster. But can a power trowel polish a concrete floor to the same level of refinement as a conventional grinder? Will polishing with trowels replace conventional polishing or does it simply produce a different kind of polished concrete floor and open different markets? Is the skill level of the polishers different for trowel polishing? Where should it not be used? Can trowels be used to polish overlays? And what happens to all the slurry produced? An expert panel will answer these questions and more.
