Wacker Neuson’s annual Trowel Challenge® competition will be held for the eighth year at the company’s World of Concrete (WOC) booth, February 2-5, 2016, Las Vegas, NV. The competition has become a main attraction of the concrete show and draws hundreds of competitors and thousands of spectators every year. For 2016, the course has been reconfigured to show-off operators’ skills for precision finishing as well as speed. “The intent of the trowel challenge has always been to test the operator’s troweling skills,” said Matt Basky, concrete product solution specialists for Wacker Neuson. “This year we have reworked the course to slow the speeds down, but emphasize precision finishing skills using an eight foot mechanical steer ride on trowel,” said Basky.
