Norton Clipper has launched its all new CT901 HP power float, offering high durability and versatility, in order to help hire merchants to minimise their costs for the lifetime of the power float.
A contractor’s job can vary from day-to-day, and ensuring that the right tools are available for the right job can take time – and cost. But when it comes to flooring, whatever the scale of a job, all concrete floors must be smoothed and finished before use.
In commercial settings with surface areas larger than 5,000 square feet, heavy duty, ride-on machinery is required to make the job as quick and painless as possible. But for the smaller, residential floors that make up the bulk of many contractor’s work, this can be overkill, with contractors preferring light weight, walk-behind machinery.
Now, with Norton Clipper’s latest product innovation, contractors no longer have to choose between the two. The CT901 HP four blade walk behind power float is specifically designed for professional contractors that work on finishing wet concrete floors in both residential and commercial buildings.
The diversity of the CT901 HP is particularly popular with contractors that don’t want to continuously hire both walk-behind and ride-on floats for every different scale of job. With plenty of excitement around the launch, Norton Clipper’s new power float is predicted to boost sales for hire merchants and stockists in this latter half of 2019.
‘Floats like a butterfly, finishes like a pro’, the CT901 HP power float is the durable heavyweight of choice among contractors, delivering ‘knockout’ smooth concrete. With a wide range of features, including hydraulic pitch control for the blades, the power float gives the operator a greater level of control than mechanical pitch systems and helps to achieve a perfect surface finish – making it a favourable purchase for contractors and a great core product for hire merchants.
As with all Norton Clipper products, this machine is manufactured using only the highest quality components and to rigorous standards of assembly. This ensures that the CT901 HP benefits from a long life and minimal requirement for maintenance, keeping product lifetime costs for both customers and merchants low.
Norton Clipper prioritises operator safety as well as great performance. By adding the robust steel frame and safety guard rings on the CT901 HP, any accidental contact between the user and the blades is prevented. The rings have been configured to guarantee the best possible visibility of the concrete surface at all times, while the mechanical blades also have a pitch control function to help improve overall accuracy. These features give the operator more control over the work to produce the ultimate smooth concrete finish.
With the CT901 HP, great performance comes as standard, but with the inclusion of the Deadman’s Handle, operator safety is also assured. The mechanism ensures that one of the operator’s hands must be on the handle at all times for the machine to function; if the operator releases his/her hand, the CT901 HP stops immediately.
Unveiled at the Bauma 2019 trade fair in April, the power float received a great reaction from both contractors and merchants, with the launch predicting sales to soar right through to 2020.
