TWIG
117 in. Path Width, Twin 6-blade rotors, 0-160 RPM, Dual Fuel Gas/LPG

Revolutionary Green Design. The industry's first trowel powered by an onboard high-cycle generator.

The all-new TWIG Ride-On Trowel delivers more Power to the Floor and demonstrates just how MQ Whiteman is reinventing the power trowel.

The TWIG's liquid-cooled multi-phase drive motors offers unprecedented torque on demand with no loss of rotor RPM through the most demanding finishing conditions. Our high-efficiency electric motor design outperforms conventional hydraulic drive units by up to 13%.

Prototype model shown. Product availability TBA.

Additional Information

Electro-Hydraulic Drive System

The industry’s first power trowel powered by an onboard high cycle generator.

Unprecedented torque on demand with no loss of rotor RPM through the most demanding finishing conditions. This revolutionary concept delivers more power to the floor and demonstrates how MQ Whiteman is reinventing the power trowel.

Onboard high-cycle AC generator is direct coupled to the engine, powering twin liquid-cooled electric drive motors.

Liquid-cooled, multi-phase drive motors deliver maximum torque at break-away RPM, enabling twin six–blade rotors to turn with optimum speed and efficiency during the entire finishing process.

High-efficiency electric motor design outperforms conventional hydraulic drive units by up to 13%.


Dual-Fuel Gas/LPG

Ford Power Products
The TWIG is powered by a 84HP Ford Power Products 2.5 Liter engine, ensuring optimum torque for panning while bringing more power to the floor for burnishing.

Convert from gasoline to LPG for work in enclosed areas (with proper ventilation) and offers longer overall running times.


Operator Controls

Dual Joysticks control our propotional Electro-Hydraulic steering design and the new digital display and Active Speed Controls are right at your fingertips.

Visual Pitch Indicator displays blade pitch on controller screen and enables operators to attain preferred pitch angle in an easy and repeatable manner.

Rotor Jog Switch facilitates lifting; enables operator to jog the rotors, preventing surface marring while standing in front of the machine.

Walk Around Deck

Our all-new frame design allows the operator to move around the trowel.


Enjoy the View

All MQ Whiteman Power Trowels are designed to provide excellent visibility of the finishing surface.


Improved Jobsite Visibility

6 LED lights provide state of the art illumination for night time or indoor work.


Stay with the leader by using genuine MQ Whiteman Pans & Trowel Blades.

Heat-treated trowel steel and tight tolerances maintain smooth trowel performance and maximum wear resistance.

Our blades are manufactured with additional rivets for greater uniformity and torsional strength. This increases machine stability and produces a smoother, flatter finish.

Enduro Blades use heavier gauge steel to achieve up to 50% longer life than conventional trowel blades. They are ideal for heavier ride-on trowels and ride-on trowels. Quick Change Blades offer a simple, fast alternative to bolt-on blades. A reuseable mounting bar and channel mount blade system allows replacement of blades in minutes without the use of tools.

Some brands of trowel blades on the market today may resemble the MQ Whiteman blade, but none comes close in quality, attention to detail and overall value
