I have some paving steps to lay in concrete, and will buy a trowel for smoothing them off.
There's an enormous range of trowels/floats available, with almost identical ones for plastering and for concrete laying. Can I use one trowel for both purposes?
This is not a direct product comparison, its a more-general "what's the difference?" question. I see the Plaster one is 25mm shorter, but has a longer "backbone" compared to the Concrete one, which has more "fore and aft deck" (?) exposed before the handle starts.
This is purely about rectangular floats, or smoothing trowels. Not pointing or mortering, and not gardening/weeding. What would stop me using the same tool for both jobs ?
