WerkMaster™ pioneered Octi-Disc™ Technology in 2005. WerkMaster™ floor refinishing machines were initially manufactured to polish Absolute Black granite, one of the hardest stones to polish. Realizing a need for a machine that could also grind and polish Terrazzo and Concrete, as well as being able to refinish Hardwood and VCT tile floors, the original machine was completely redesigned.
WerkMaster's patented 8 Head Octi-Disc™ Technology grinds, edges, polishes, buffs, burnishes or sands and screens surfaces to within 1/8" or 3 mm of a wall or cabinet kick. The advantage of a WerkMaster is that one machine can outperform today’s competitor’s technology on any hard surface on floors, stairs or countertops. And now with the new Scarab, you can do stair risers and walls as well!
What makes WerkMaster™ so unique? Octi-Disc™ Technology and SPEED! Our heads spin at disc speeds that are unheard of and are unavailable on today’s planetary, direct drive or drum machines! Try this test. Run a 7” cup wheel on a variable speed hand grinder at 450 rpm; the first thing you will notice is you will need to push down with your weight on it. Now spin it up to 2100 rpm, the first thing you will do is reduce your pressure on it because it is cutting so quickly! It is basic physics, the faster you’re rpm, the more often the abrasive is crossing the surface and with more abrasives, the FASTER the Rate of Removal – the FASTER and BETTER the SHINE or RESULTS!
ULTRA-FLEX Plug ‘N Go System
Our new patent pending ULTRA- FLEX Plug ‘N Go System is a major advancement in tooling design. The first machines incorporated Velcro hook & loop technology and were basically planers. The rigid system wouldn’t allow the machines to follow the floor. The rigidity of the Velcro system resulted in track marks and ghosting on some concrete floors that required a cream polish look, but the results were excellent on terrazzo, stone and wood floors.
The challenge was to develop a system that would allow the machines to not only flatten a floor, but to follow a very wavy, uneven floor using the same tools and drive plates. The result was an ingenious system that uses rubber grommets of various hardness, bumpers and INDEXING. The result is an increase in productivity of 20% to 45% over our older Velcro design! (Watch the video on Plug ‘N Go)
Now, you can vary the desired flexibility allowing you to flatten the floor or follow the floor better than any planetary grinder or hardwood belt sander. How wavy? Remove deep birdbaths or fishbowls up to ¾ inch deep! Grind and polish around drains. Plug ‘N Go technology also eliminates the frustration and pain of dealing with lippage, expansion joints, large cracks, curled wood floors or decks.
NO WEIGHT KITS - Tired of those heavy weight kits? No need to add heavy weights, simply increase or reduce point pressure by easily adding or removing Plug ‘N Go segments
Wet or Dry - Nothing Out Shines a WerkMaster! Did we say – DRY? Impossible they say – you cannot polish Marble – DRY. Wrong! Our ULTRA-FLEX Plug ‘N Go Technology combined with our advanced German tooling design now delivers uncompromising results faster and easier than any product on stone and terrazzo floors – ABSOLUTELY DRY! Now you have the choice of wet or dry. From our Quick Step System to our 4 Step System, WerkMaster machines deliver deep, crisp, clear mirror finishes on stone that are the hallmark of WerkMaster floors
WerkMaster has quietly been winning over converts from the “old system” of finishing terrazzo to our Quick Step and 4 Step System. What are the advantages of a WerkMaster over today’s planetary and direct drive machines, well if your customers are tired of looking at an undulating floor that gives off uneven light reflection and is harder to maintain, you can now offer them a brilliant completely FLAT floor!
When a project needs to be completed on short notice, you can expect a minimum performance benefit of 2 to 1 over traditional equipment, in many cases much more. No need to have back up machines because of constant breakdown. More uptime and production means less labour saving you time and money. No Edging! WerkMaster takes you to the Wall! Perfectly polished floors from edge to edge.
Whether it is epoxy, poly aspartic, cementitious terrazzo, WerkMaster delivers uncompromising results better and faster than any competitor’s technology. A much respected member of the terrazzo industry stated; “WerkMaster is revolutionizing the terrazzo industry, and I want to be part of that leading wave of technical advancement in terrazzo polishing.”

From the Scarab to the COLOSSOS, from surface prep to polishing, pound for pound, no other machines can outperform a WerkMaster.
It is probably safe to say that more garages have been prepped for coatings by a WerkMaster than any other competitors’ machine. Why? Because all WerkMaster machines, get to within 1/8” or 3mm of a wall, so - No Edging. Their versatility, speed, manoeuvrability, productivity and results sets them apart from all competitors. We even have customers using the COLOSSOS for edging on large projects.
And not only are WerkMaster machines the Best Built in the industry, as all components are manufactured in North America to rigid standards, but we are the only machine offering a 2 Year Parts & Labour Warranty! You don’t have to have a spare WerkMaster to ensure you can get the job done because of constant breakdowns.
Why are WerkMaster machines so effective on hardwood? Because our machine is designed to be a planer. Belt and drum sanders cause divots, stall marks and chatter marks and are difficult to operate. The edgers can be a nightmare to run. Stained floors require a tremendous amount of blending with a buffer, which isn’t usually very dust proof and are labour intensive.
WerkMaster machines are very fast, agile, will remove overwood , coatings including cutback carpet glue, paint, tongue oil, staples, paint and just about any coating on a wood floor, because we pioneered the design and use of Diamond Abrasive Tools for refinishing hardwood floors! Now we have developed a Sandpaperless System! That is correct, no sandpaper, our specially designed diamond abrasive tooling and custom screens means you can complete thousands of square feet of hardwood floors without using sandpaper!
Aluminium oxide factory finished engineered floors are more popular today and need refinishing. Problem is the amount of wood to work with is limited. A belt sander could damage an engineered floor in a heartbeat, or remove too much wood, shortening the life of the floor. Not a worry with a WerkMaster, because our Sandpaperless System removes the finish so quickly without damaging or removing too much wood.
Best thing about a WerkMaster is not that it gets to within 1/8” or 3mm of the wall, or that it delivers the best finish, that a floor can quite often be completed in 2 Steps, or that it doesn’t matter which direction you run on parquet floors, or that it reduces time and labour, no – one of the best features about a WerkMaster is that you can finish a customer’s floor – DUST FREE!
Fast, agile, easy and fun to operate, test drive a WerkMaster™ and see how quickly you too can improve your bottom line profits! WerkMaster – Taking it to the Wall!
WerkMaster™ delivers superior results that most competitors only dream of achieving! Tradesmen are amazed and delighted with the ease of use and total customer satisfaction achieved with a WerkMaster™.
