The blade is extruded magnesium fitted with a double hang wooden handle. Magnesium is very hard, durable and lightweight. It produces a smoother finish than a wooden float. It brings the cream to the surface of the concrete, making the final finishing or polishing with a steel trowel that much easier and quicker. The M145 is one of Marshalltown’s most popular trowels. Made in the USA the blade is 400 x 78mm.
