How do you decide what concrete grinding machine is right for you? Below is a guide to help narrow down your decision.
Will you offer surface preparation, polishing or both? If your customers perform heavy surface preparation, you will need a concrete grinding machine that has adequate weight and horsepower. Remember, the heavier the machine and the larger the motor, the more power you’ll need. When performing light to medium prep work with a lighter machine, the proper abrasives play a key role and the same is true when polishing with heavy equipment.
How big are the jobs your customers are trying to tackle? Are the jobs 2,000 square feet and under? If so, a 22- to 25-inch machine can tackle this size job in a timely manner for most processes, including polishing. For larger areas you will need multiple pieces of the same size equipment or make the decision to choose larger concrete grinding machine. When making this decision, take into consideration the ability to put multiple machines on one job for increased production or on separate jobs to have the ability to tackle multiple jobs at the same time.
Are your jobs in open areas or broken into smaller areas? Large concrete grinding machine works well in open areas but when having to work in areas with lots of rooms and tight corners, smaller equipment might be the better option. If your customers are consistently working in open areas of 1,000 square feet and over with doors that are 36 inches wide or larger, a 32-inch machine will significantly increase production. Remember that smaller machines offer a lot of versatility but require more manpower, whereas larger machines have less versatility but increased production.
There are many issues to consider when choosing the grinding, honing and concrete grinding machine that’s right for your company. Educate yourself on the options in the industry and consider how the machine characteristics will help your customers produce the floors they want.
