If you’re a professional contractor or a DIYer, knowing which type of grinder you need for a particular project can be a challenge considering all the different options on the market. But once you have the basics down, finding the machine that will work for what you’re trying to do should be a breeze. Here is a rundown of the different types of floor grinders on the market and how they should be used.
Hand Held Grinders
Hand held grinders will usually be used for smaller grinding applications such as between doorways, short joins in slabs which have become raised, against walls or in hard to reach areas. Typically hand held grinders will be either a 175mm Surface Grinder or a 125mm Surface Grinder . Both of these are very aggressive and are suitable for light levelling work, surface cleaning and coating removal … even epoxy!
In addition to our popular low speed floor grinders, we now offer a more aggressive and efficient Meteor Floor Grinder. This style of floor grinder is often used by professional flooring contractors for it’s superior performance and ease of use.
What will it do?
This Meteor Floor Grinder will make short work of paint, mortar and glue removal from concrete floors including hard bonds such as epoxies. It is also suitable for “knocking down trip lips” where concrete has cracked or there is a slight difference in the height of slabs.
