It's a gas powered motor with blades on the bottom and they spin really fast and they do what is called burning it in. When you burn it in with a power trawl, that gives it a real smooth and a real sleek finish. Sometimes you see what's called a broom finish. You can see concrete after it has been poured that looks like someone took a fine broom and swept across it when it was done. Other times, they want a sleek finish. What they do is burn in it and that's your power- trawl finishing machine. There are two of the machines working side by side. A guy rides around on it on a really big slab. Then they usually have the walk-behind which is a smaller machine. It is usually a single where the riders are doubles.
