Grinder polishes, removes dirt,adhesives and more

General Equipment has introduced a new single-head surface grinder. Designed for smaller-scale surface preparation projects, the SG12/E offers high performance, durability and ease-of-use. Powered by a totally enclosed, fan-cooled 1.5-horsepower electric motor, the SG12 features a single rotating disc with a 12-inch-wide working width. Offering a top disc rotation speed of 250 rpm, applications for the SG12 include grinding concrete surfaces, removing mastics, adhesives, epoxies and urethanes, breaking up deposits of grease and dirt, removing rubber carpet backing and industrial residues, and polishing more delicate terrazzo and marble floor surfaces.

Built for portability, the SG12 includes a folding handle that makes it easier to transport. Additionally, the compact frame design and wheel position allow for simple maneuvering up and down stairwells. The handle height is also fully adjustable. For more information, call (800) 533-0524 or visit
