Renting a floor grinder

7 replies [Last post]

Anyone know where to rent a walk behind floor grinder? My local rental shops do not have one and I may need to go out of town for it....any suggestions. I have about 2000 feet of painted floors that we will be installing a micro topping.

Also what kind of wheel or

Also what kind of wheel or pads should I be looking to use....I've always used a 7" hand grinder with a turbo cup wheel

2 ways to go

Rent a swing floor machine and use a black pad and lightly abrade the paint. Use Colormaker products and you should be able to skim on top of the paint. Colormaker and Duraamen did one project together overtop of a painted floor with NO issues. The other way to go is to rent a floor grinder and start out at 25 grit and switch to 80 grit and prime and install your topping. Most rental companies will bring in a specific machine if you request one. Try a Werkmaster. I did and then I bought one. My local CAT rental store would bring any machine in I requested from Vancouver...350 miles away and no extra charge for that.

Thanks...I'm going to contact

Thanks...I'm going to contact our sunbelt store, their website says they have a couple of different grinders so maybe they can get one to me

Thanks for the offer man. I

Thanks for the offer man. I ended up renting an edco dual head grinder withe the dyaserts. That chewed the paint and glue pretty close to slab so that all we have left is to use a cup wheel to clean the remainder. I can get it done with my hand grinder but there is a walk behind single head high speed 7" edco for rent. I will have to buy the wheel but my main concern does the machine apply enough pressure to clean light glue or paint and give me a clean substrate. I hate to blow $300 for nothing.

The 7" Edco Stand Up Grinder

The 7" Edco Stand Up Grinder should work fine if they give you the right kind of disc or tooling for it.
