Proposition 65 Warning
Engine exhaust and some of
its constituents, and some dust created
by power sanding, sawing, grinding,
drillingandotherconstructionactivities
contains chemicals known to the State
of California to cause cancer, birth
defects and other reproductive harm.
Some examples of these chemicals are:
Leadfromlead-basedpaints.
Crystalline silicafrombricks.
Cementandothermasonryproducts.
Arsenicandchromiumfromchemically
treatedlumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies,
depending on how often you do this type
of work. To reduce your exposure to
these chemicals: ALWAYS work in a
well ventilated area, and work with
approved safety equipment, such as
dust masks that are specially designed
to filter out microscopic particles.

Silicosis/Respiratory Warnings
WARNING
WARNING
SILICOSIS WARNING
RESPIRATORY HAZARDS
Grinding/cutting/drilling of masonry, concrete, metal and
other materials with silica in their composition may give
off dust or mists containing crystalline silica. Silica is a
basic component of sand, quartz, brick clay, granite and
numerous other minerals and rocks. Repeated and/or
substantial inhalation of airborne crystalline silica can
cause serious or fatal respiratory diseases, including
silicosis. In addition, California and some other
authorities have listed respirable crystalline silica as a
substance known to cause cancer. When cutting such
materials, always follow the respiratory precautions
mentioned above.
Grinding/cutting/drilling of masonry, concrete, metal and
other materials can generate dust, mists and fumes
containing chemicals known to cause serious or fatal
injury or illness, such as respiratory disease, cancer,
birth defects or other reproductive harm. If you are
unfamiliar with the risks associated with the particular
process and/or material being cut or the composition of
the tool being used, review the material safety data
sheet and/or consult your employer, the material
manufacturer/supplier, governmental agencies such as
OSHA and NIOSH and other sources on hazardous
materials. California and some other authorities, for
instance, have published lists of substances known to
cause cancer, reproductive toxicity, or other harmful
effects.
Control dust, mist and fumes at the source where
possible. In this regard use good work practices and
follow the recommendations of the manufacturers or
suppliers, OSHA/NIOSH, and occupational and trade
associations. Water should be used for dust
suppression when wet cutting is feasible. When the
hazards from inhalation of dust, mists and fumes cannot
be eliminated, the operator and any bystanders should
always wear a respirator approved by NIOSH/MSHA for
the materials being used.

general information
HHN RIDE-ON TROWEL FAMILIARIZATION
The HHN series Ride-On Power Trowel is designed for the
floating and finishing of concrete slabs.
Take a walk around the HHN Ride-On Power Trowel. Take
notice of all the major components (see Figure 2 and Figure
3) like the engine, blades, air cleaner, fuel system, fuel shutoff valve, ignition switch etc. Check that there is always oil
in the engine, and gear oil in the gear box assembly.
Read all the safety instructions carefully. Safety instructions
will be found throughout this manual and on the machine.
Keep all safety information in good, readable condition.
Operators should be well trained on the operation and
maintenance of the HHN Ride-On Power Trowels.
Look at the operator control levers. Grab the control levers
and move them around a bit. Look to see how moving the
control levers causes the gearboxes and frame to move.
Notice the foot pedal which controls the engine speed. Also
take a look at the main driveline of the trowel. Take note
and reference how the belts look, this is the way the belts
should look when adjusted properly.
Before using your HHN Ride-On Power Trowel, test it on
a flat watered down section of finished concrete. This trial
test run will increase your confidence in using the trowel
and at the same time it will familiarize you with the trowel’s
controls and indicators. In addition you will understand how
the trowel will handle under actual conditions.
Engine
The HHN Ride-On Power Trowel is equipped with a liquid
cooled 31 HP Vanguard gasoline engine. Refer to the
engine owner’s manual for specific instructions regarding
engine operation. This manual is included with the rideon trowel at the time of shipping from Whiteman. Please
contact your nearest Multiquip Dealer for a replacement
should the original manual disappear.
Figure 2 and Figure 3 show the location of the controls,
indicators and general mainte nance parts. Each control
may perform more than one function.
Gearboxes
The HHN Ride on Power Trowel consist of two separate
gearbox assemblies that are enclosed in rugged cast
aluminum gear cases.
The gearbox casing holds 50% more oil capacity than
competitors, which allows more lubrication to be provided
to critical points.
Steering Assist
Dual control levers located in front of the operator's seat
are provided for steering the HHN Ride on Power Trowel.
The control levers are linked to two spring loaded cylinders.
Push the left control lever forward and pull the right control
lever backward and the trowel will rotate clockwise on
approximately a center axis. Pull the left control lever
backward and push the right control lever forward and
the trowel will rotate counterclockwise. See Table 4 for
a complete description on the control levers directional
positioning.
Constant Velocity Joints (CV-Joints)
Constant velocity joints insure the efficient transfer of power
to the drive shaft and maintain the timing of the gearboxes
without any chance of slippage.
Training
For training, please use the “TRAINING CHECKLIST”
located in the front of this manual. This checklist is not
intended to be a substitu te for proper training but will
provide an outline for an experienced operator to provide
training to a new operator.
Blades
The blades of the ride-on power trowel finish the concrete
as they are swirled around the surface. Blades are classified
as combination (10 or 8 inches wide) and finish (6 inches
wide). The HHN ride-on power trowels are equipped with
five blades per rotor equally spaced in a radial pattern and
attached to a vertical rotating shaft by means of a spider
assembly.

Clutch
This clutch system provides a high pulley ratio (a low gearso to speak) to start out and a low pulley ratio ( a high
gear- so to speak) for a high speed operation, with infinite
variation between the two.
This means that it will not be necessary to give full throttle
in order to “break the blades/pans loose”. The machine can
slowly be brought up to speed.
The torque sensitive pulley (Figure 26) utilizes a spring and
cam bracket. Peak performance results from proper
interaction between the driven pulley spring and the ramp
angle of the cam bracket.

NOTICE
This section is intended to aid users in the maintenance
of drive assemblies with a new style Multi-Clutch.
Checking The Drive Belt
The drive belt needs to be changed as soon as it begins
to show signs of wear. DO NOT reuse a belt under any
circumstances. Indications of excessive belt wear are
fraying, squealing when in use, belts that emit smoke or a
burning rubber smell when in use.
To gain access to the drive belt, remove the drive belt
guard cover, then visually inspect the drive belt for signs
of damage or excessive wear. If the drive belt is worn or
damaged, replace the drive belt.
Long life can be expected with this new drive assembly as
long as the belt is kept properly aligned.
The clutch will not shift correctly if the belt width is below
1.14". Measure the CVT belt every 100 hours of use to
make sure it is within the specified tolerance. See Figure 27.

maintenance (new style clutch)
how it works
The Multi-Clutch functions much like a standard CVT
system. As the engine RPM’s increase, the drive or primary
clutch closes, forcing the belt to ride outwards on the drive
sheaves. The closing of the drive clutch also forces the belt
to open the driven or secondary sheaves. The opening and
closing of these sheaves creates a ratio variation… hence
CVT or Continuously Variable Transmission.
Belt protection is achieved within the Multi-Clutch through
the use of a series of centrifugal clutches. While most CVT
systems have a loose or slack belt while the engine idles,
the sheaves of those systems are constantly rotating and
wearing on the belt.
Those systems also require the stationary belt to be
pinched by the constantly rotating sheaves during startup.
The relative rotation of the sheaves to the belt causes
unnecessary wear on the belt. With traditional CVT
systems, wear on the belt happens any time the engine is
idling and at every start up of the driven equipment. This is
where the Multi-Clutch differs from the other CVT’s.
The Multi-Clutch utilizes two centrifugal clutches (the starter
clutch system) to drive the sheaves of the drive (primary)
clutch. What that means is that the belt can remain tight in
the sheaves, and that both the sheaves and the belt are
stationary while the vehicle is idling. This eliminates the belt
wear at an idle, and during start up, while also providing
one additional form of belt protection.
The centrifugal clutches (starter clutch) can act as overload
protection as well. In cases where too much torque is trying
to be transmitted to the belt, the centrifugals can slip before
the maximum load on the belt is achieved. What this means
is that instead of the belt slipping on the sheaves during
an overload, the centrifugals will first slip further protecting
the belt from damage.

maintenance
Blade Pitch
Matching Blade Pitch for Both Sets of Blades
Sometimes it may be necessary to match blade pitch between
the two sets of blades. There are some signs that this may be
necessary. For example, the differences in pitch could cause
a noticeable difference in finish quality between the two sets
of blades. Or, the difference in blade pitch could make the
machine difficult to control. This is due to the surface area in
contact with the concrete (the blade set with the greater contact
area tends to stick to the concrete more).
Single Pitch™
On a Single Pitch™ trowel each spider assembly can be
pitched individually, forcing the operator to constantly make
adjustments on each pitch tower.
Twin Pitch™
Trowels equipped with Twin Pitch™ controls may need
to have blade pitch between the two sets of blades
“syncronized”. If the blades need to be syncronized this is
easily accomplished by performing the following procedure.
Refer to Figure 31.
1. Lift the pitch adjustment handle on either side. Once
lifted, that side is now disconnected from the Twin
Pitch™ system.
2. Adjust to match the opposite side.
3. When adjusted, lower the handle to Twin Pitch™

Blade Pitch Adjustment Procedure
Maintenance adjustment of blade pitch is made by adjusting
a bolt (Figure 32) on the arm of the trowel blade finger.
This bolt is the contact point of the trowel arm to the lower
wear plate on the thrust collar. The goal of adjustment is to
promote consistent blade pitch and finishing quality.
Look for the following indications if blades are wearing
unevenly. If so, adjustment may be necessary.
„„Is one blade completely worn out while the others look
new?
„„Does the machine have a perceptible rolling or bouncing
motion when in use?
„„Look at the machine while it is running, do the guard
rings “rock up and down” relative to the ground?
„„Do the pitch control towers rock back and forth?

TROWEL ARM

ADJUSTMENT BOLT
Figure 32. Blade Pitch Adjustment Bolt
The easiest and most consistent way to make adjustments
on the trowel arm fingers is to use the Trowel Arm Adjustment
Fixture (P/N 9177). It comes with all the hardware necessary
to properly accomplish this maintenance and instructions
on how to utilize this tool.
If a trowel arm adjustment fixture is not available and
immediate adjustment is necessary, temporary field
adjustment can be made if you can see or feel which blade
is pulling harder by adjusting the bolt that corresponds to
that blade.
A better way to determine which blades need adjustment
is to place the machine on a known FLAT surface (steel
metal plate) and pitch the blades as flat as possible. Look
at the adjustment bolts. They should all barely make contact
with the lower wear plate on the spider. If you can see that
one of them is not making contact, some adjustment will
be necessary.
page 36 — HHN31VTCSL5 RIDE-ON TROWEL • operation and parts manual — rev. #8 (05/03/12)
maintenance
Adjust the “high” bolts down to the level of the one that is not
touching, or adjust the “low” bolt up to the level of the higher
ones. If possible, adjust the low bolt up to the level of the
rest of the bolts. This is the fastest way, but may not always
work. Verify after adjustment the blades pitch correctly.
Blades that are incorrectly adjusted often will not be able
to pitch flat. This can occur if the adjusting bolts are raised
too high. Conversely, adjusting bolts that are too low will
not allow the blades to be pitched high enough for finishing
operations.
If, after making Blade Pitch adjustments, the machine is
still finishing poorly, blades, trowel arms, and trowel arm
bushings may be suspect and should be looked at for
adjustment, wear, or damage. See the following sections.
Changing Blades
It is recommended that ALL the blades on the entire
machine are changed at the same time. If only one or
some of the blades are changed, the machine will not
finish concrete consistently and the machine may wobble
or bounce.
1. Place the machine on a flat, level surface. Adjust
the blade pitch control to make the blades as flat as
possible. Note the blade orientation on the trowel arm.
This is important for ride-on trowels as the two sets
of blades counter-rotate. Lift the machine up, placing
blocks under the main guard ring to support it.
2. Remove the bolts and lock washers on the trowel arm,
and then remove the blade.
3. Scrape all concrete and debris from the trowel arm. This
is important to properly seat the new blade.
4. Install the new blade, maintaining the proper orientation
for direction of rotation.
Clean-Up
Never allow concrete to harden on the power trowel.
Immediately after use wash any concrete off the trowel
with water, be careful not to spray a hot engine or muffler.
An old paint brush or broom may help loosen any concrete
that has started to harden.
Trowel Arm Adjustment
Use the following procedure to check and adjust trowel
arms, and check for worn or damaged components when
it becomes apparent that the trowel is finishing poorly or
in need of routine maintenance.
Look for the following indications. Trowel arm alignment,
worn spider bushings or bent trowel arms may the cause.
„„Are blades wearing unevenly? Is one blade completely
worn out while the others look new?
„„Does the machine have a perceptible rolling or bouncing
motion when in use?
„„Look at the machine while it is running. Do the guard
rings “rock up and down” relative to the ground?
1. Place the trowel in a FLAT, LEVEL area.
NOTICE
A level, clean area to test the trowel prior to and after is
essential. Any unlevel spots in the floor or debris under
the trowel blades will give an incorrect perception of
adjustment. Ideally, a 5 x 5 Ft. (1.5 x 1.5 Meter) threequarter inch (19 mm) thick FLAT steel plate should be
used for testing.
2. Pitch the blades as flat as possible. The adjustment
bolts should all barely make contact with the lower
wear plate on the spider. If one is not making contact,
adjustment will be necessary (Figure 34).
5. Reinstall the bolts and lock washers.
6. Repeat steps 2-5 for all remaining blades.
Steering Adjustment
The steering assist adjustment should be performed only
by qualified service technicians. For HHN34TVD steering
adjustment instructions, reference MQ Whiteman service
bulletin 200925.

before the machine is put back into operation.
9. Install stabilizer ring onto spider assembly.
10. Lubricate all grease points (zerk fittings) with premium
“Lithum 12” based grease, conforming to NLG1 Grade
#2 consistency.
Installing Pans Onto Finisher Blades
These round discs sometimes referred to as "pans" attach
to the spiders arms and allow early floating on wet concrete
and easy movement from wet to dry areas. They are also
very effective in embedding large aggregates and surface
hardeners.
WARNING
DO NOT lift the trowel when the pans are
attached.
ALWAYS install pans either on the work area
or on an area that is next to and level with
the work area.
Refer to Figure 43 when installing pans onto finisher blades.
Decommissioning Trowel/Components
Decommissioning is a controlled process used to safely
retire a piece of equipment that is no longer serviceable.
If the equipment poses an unacceptable and unrepairable
safety risk due to wear or damage or is no longer cost
effective to maintain, (beyond life-cycle reliability) and is
to be decommissioned, (demolition and dismantlement),
the following procedure must take place:
1. Drain all fluids completely. These may include oil,
gasoline, hydraulic oil and antifreeze. Dispose of
properly in accordance with local and governmental
regulations. Never pour on ground or dump down
drains or sewers.
2. Remove battery and bring to appropriate facility for lead
reclamation. Use safety precautions when handling
batteries that contain sulfuric acid.
3. The remainder can be brought to a salvage yard or
metal reclamation facility for further dismantling.
