Get a Grip on the Best.

Choose the handle assembly that is right for you!

Our anti-vibration handle design dramatically reduces the vibration transmitted to the operator. Height-adjustable handles design increases operator comfort and decreases fatigue over an eight hour day. This feature is standard on both the QuickPitchâ„¢ and Standard knob handle.

QXH-Series QuickPitch™ Handles

A patented spring-loaded design enables the operator to react rapidly to changing concrete conditions. Blade pitch is increased or decreased in 1/8" increments by moving the latching lever back and forth.

SXH-Series Standard Handles

A favorite of contractors who prefer to have infinite blade pitch control. The large knob makes it easy to increase or decrease blade pitch to the desired angle.

Unless otherwise specified, handles are sold separately.

The Industry's Best Gearboxes.

MQ Whiteman gearboxes use high-quality aluminum castings that provide high oil capacity and integrated cooling fins help dissipate heat. A heat-treated worm gear and composite bronze gear along with top quality bearings ensure your trowel delivers years of dependable, trouble-free operation.

Service Made Easy

Professional contractors & service technicians understand routine maintenance is the key to maintaining top performance. MQ Whiteman spider assemblies are designed to be economically rebuilt and keep maintenance costs low.

A rugged thrust collar is protected by high-strength wear plates made of trowel steel to prevent wear of a key component. A bronze bushing prevents wear against the thrust collar from the gearbox output shaft.

The heavy-duty spider is protected from premature wear by bronze bushings inserted into each casting. These bushings make it easy and economical to rebuild the spider assembly and restore it to factory specifications.

Servicing your equipment shouldn't be costly so we make certain our replacement parts are priced right. MQ Whiteman provides you with the best performing machines on the market and help you maintain the lowest cost of ownership.

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 walk-behind 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
