Surface Preparation

We rent, sell, and service a full line of surface preparation equipment for industrial, commercial, or residential use. Our fleet of surface preparation tools and equipment includes concrete planers, concrete grinders and concrete power trowels. Our surface prep and finishing tools assist in preparing concrete surfaces for new layers of concrete or the addition of a decorative finish by removing previous coatings, treatments, and older layers of concrete. They are designed for the cutting, grinding, leveling, smoothing, planing, texturing, and milling of concrete slabs, stone, brick, and ceramic floors.

Concrete planers, also known as concrete scarifiers, are ideal for jobs where removal of large layers of concrete are required. They are perfect for sidewalk trip hazard repair, removal of concrete coatings, traffic line removal, and marking removal. Concrete planers provide an 8" working width and will scarify approximately 350-500 square feet per hour, at a depth per pass of 1/8". They can remove traffic lines at a rate of 800 to 1,000 linear feet per hour.

Concrete grinders are ideal for skimming concrete surfaces for the purpose of cleaning or light grinding. They are also great for removing mastics, thin-set, high spots, epoxies and urethanes on concrete. Grinders can also help to to add a light texture to slippery concrete surfaces. Concrete grinders provide 22" of working width.

Concrete power trowels are ideal for concrete finishing of newly poured cement. Dynamically balanced trowels, when their blades are turning, offer nearly effortless operation. Ask about our finishing blades and combo blade attachments.
