Scraper and grinder ease floor prep

Stow’s new Floor Covering Scraper weighs only 130 pounds, but it can remove direct glue-down carpet, hardwood flooring, linoleum, non-slip floor coverings, vinyl tile and any other adhesive, cement or mastic. The scraper is driven by a 3⁄4-hp fan-cooled capacitor-start motor and constructed with unitized, welded steel plates for added strength. It features a height-adjustable handle that can be easily folded for transportation or storage. The scraper is only 23 inches wide, which makes it ideal for working in narrow, space-restricted areas.

Stow’s new DFG Series Floor Grinders can remove grease, dirt, rubber carpet backing and industrial residues on your floors quickly, effectively and with minimal operator effort. Three dual head floor grinders are offered and each is ideal for grinding and polishing concrete, asphalt, terrazzo and marble floors. The DFG Series is powered by Honda gasoline or electric motors and a large selection of attachments make the floor grinders perfect for use by concrete repair contractors, industrial building maintenance specialists and surface preparation contractors.
