The 2014 Fastest Trowel on the Block goes to Champion, Irvin Willoughby of Pascal Robertson Masonry, Sorrento, Florida. Irvin’s first place finish beat his own boss, Pascal Robertson, by 8 blocks and an $8000 cash prize. Pascal is no stranger to the competition. In fact, he  is a two-time Fastest Trowel on the Block champion, winning back-to-back titles in 2008 and 2009. He placed second in 2003, 2004 and 2006, and third in 2014

The competition was at World of Concrete in Las Vegas and the goal was to complete as much of a 30-foot long wall as possible, using 8″x8″x16″ CMU and provided mortar in a twenty minute heat. Speed is just one part of the competition. Craftsmanship as well as use of normal masonry practices and hand tools were judged also. The winners received a Marshalltown tool bag and tools, a STIHL gift certificate and cash prizes.

Congratulations, Pascal Robertson Masonry! Walker Miller Equipment is proud to call you a long time customer. Best wishes for your continued success.
