King Concepts

The ProGrind Series of floor surfacing machinery features dual drive technology for control power and a multifunctional range of applications, such as concrete floor preparation, repair, grinding, polishing of concrete floors and more. Dual drive technology, available on the ProGrind 680 and 820 (pictured) allows the operator to selectively control either speed or direction of the planetary rotation or of the grinding heads, which results in many speed and direction combinations. The ProGrind range is designed to rapidly remove heavy-duty surfaces and coatings, as well as give a dustless application. The ProGrind machines can also grind wet or dry.

General Equipment

General Equipment's SG24/E3HP surface grinder is powered by an enclosed fan-cooled, 3-hp electric motor to provide power for job applications where a gasoline engine is not practical. The unit features standard twin counter-rotating discs that can work a 24-inch by 12-inch area. The discs can be removed quickly to allow 10-inch diameter multi-segmented dry diamond discs to be attached for increased productivity on polymer, concrete, epoxy, plastic overlays and critical flat-floor installations. Other attachment systems are available for breaking up deposits of grease, rubber carpet backing and industrial residues; cleaning concrete, asphalt and tiles; producing exposed aggregate slabs; and buffing and polishing delicate terrazzo and marble floor surfaces.

Latta Equipment

Latta Equipment introduces the Eliminator filtration system for wood floor sanding to eliminate a dust-filled environment while on the job. The filtration system uses three high-powered vacuum motors for suction and airflow. The high efficiency cyclone removes 98 percent of the dust into a self-bagging 30-gallon collector for easy machine emptying. The Eliminator allows up to two users to simultaneously use a belt/drum sander and an edger with up to 125 feet of hose. The vacuum can also be disconnected and used by itself on small jobs. Features of the unit include an oversized primary filter area with a steel cage that eliminates premature filter clogging, a durable compression cast composite housing that won't dent or rust, a maintenance-free vacuum that increases productivity and decreases cleanup time and an average filter life of three to five years.

Essex Silver-Line

Essex Silver-Line introduces a drum for its floor sander that requires no tools for paper attachment, while being supported on both sides of the chassis. The SL8V2 uses Velcro technology for paper attachment to the high-density foam rubber. All of the benefits of the SL8 — slow, constant speed and a soft rubber surface — combined with the Velcro make the SL8V2 user friendly, the company says. The SL8V2 Velcro drum is designed for any application, from the roughest floor to a new floor, and allows the do-it-yourselfer to achieve professional results.

Russ Macleish, manager at Taylor Rental Center in Andover, Mass., owns one SL8V2 and four of the SL8 models. He likes that the Velcro makes operation easier for the customers. “The installation of the paper is very, very easy,” he says. “The new Velcro is just very simple to put paper on — you can't miss!” He also says the foam drum absorbs the bounce, making the machine less likely to leave chatter marks, and making it more user friendly with less operator error.
