Wacker Neuson Crowns 2015 Trowel Challenge® Competition Winner
Perfect weather conditions and large crowds made for an exciting finish at Wacker Neuson’s 7th annual Trowel Challenge® competition at the 2015 World of Concrete. Each year, Wacker Neuson’s high speed trowel challenge draws fans to watch finishers from around the world race for the grand prize, a custom 48'' CRT 48-35V ride-on trowel powered by a special Vanguard™ BIG BLOCK™ V-twin engine. The top 3 finishers receive a custom laser cut ride-on trowel trophy.
Preliminary competitions were held the first 3 days of the annual concrete trade show. The contestants with the top 10 fastest times from the preliminaries advanced to the finals on Thursday, February 5, 2015. The top 10 finalist each had one run through the course and that time was added to their preliminary time. It is always a close race and once again, less than one second separated the 1st place and 3rd place finisher.
