Edco grinders are available in 11-, 22- and 36-inch working widths and your choice of gasoline, propane or electric power. Accessories enable industrial maintenance departments and concrete contractors to use Edco grinders to eliminate manufacturing residue buildups such as rubber, grease, fiberglass and food products, or to return concrete to a smooth, clean, level surface.

Mitch Smitherman, owner of All-Star Equipment, Palm Bay, Fla., likes the Edco grinders because they offer many accessories to cover a lot of applications. “All of their equipment is very durable and stands up very well in rental,” Smitherman says.

Robert Bosch Tool Corp. recently unveiled the new 1775E, a 5-inch grinder, designed specifically for professional tuckpointers. Developed specifically for tuckpointing applications, Bosch combined a multi-positioning head with its exclusive dust extraction system to provide debris management. Better accuracy and control are achieved by viewing the work area through the newly designed guard and the enlarged view window. Weighing only 5.6 pounds, the 8.5 amp, 11,000 rpm motor constantly maintains speed under load, ensuring an even removal rate.

Erich Stefans, general field superintendent for Berglund Construction, Chicago, worked with Bosch to find a grinder that particularly met the company's needs. The product allows you to adjust the depth, and provides a window to see the blade while it's cutting,” Stefan said. “Plus, the Bosch tools outlast anything we've ever dealt with,” he adds. And because the guard can be used on other grinders, Stefans plans to purchase more from the distributor, The Glenrock Co., soon.

Stephenson's Concrete Solutions, a division of Stephenson's Rent-All, Mississauga, Ontario, has been purchasing SP8 scarifiers from Terex-Bartell for 13 to 15 years. “The best quality of the Terex-Bartell scarifiers is their portability,” says Andrew Fraser, product specialist. “These units have the power to remove coatings, trip edges, spalled concrete and profile concrete for topcoats — all this from a tool that can be lifted easily by two people into almost any vehicle. They're robust, portable and easy to operate. For a rental company these qualities are golden.”
