Rip-R-Stripper takes it all off

General Equipment Co. has introduced an electricpowered floor-covering scraper. Ideal for removing such materials as carpet, ceramic tile, linoleum and mastic, the FCS16 Rip-R-Stripper offers high productivity, an ergonomic design and multiple removal accessories. With an exciter unit mounted directly to the driveshaft, the scraper uses downward force to bore into and strip away the applied floor covering and adhesive. External weights can be added to provide extra force for removing tough residues and to increase material removal rates. Several blade options are available, including 8- and 12-inch scoring blades for removing materials from concrete surfaces.

With a unitized, welded steel-plate frame and only one moving part, the Rip-R-Stripper is built to handle the rigors of most job sites while requiring minimal maintenance. For more information, call (800) 533-0524 or visit
