The machine must be cleaned after working with it before concrete sets on the blades. This will lengthen the life of the machine. Check the blade arms for wear before working with it to avoid a bad finish. The blades should be flat to start with and as the job is done, the angle of the blades will be increased to create a really smooth finish. The blades should all be set the same.
Do's and Donts:
