Scarify approximately 500 square feet per with the EDCO Crete-Plane Walk-Behind Scarifier. The cutting wheels rotate to break up the concrete. The 6-shaft cutting drum will beat at the existing, old surface so a clean, textured or rough finish is left so new concrete can be laid down. This electric 5 horsepower cutter will clean, grind, and light or heavy milling.
Scarifiers are also known as planers, milling machines, rotary cutters or simply surface-preparation machines. This machine can repair sidewalks to avoid a potential accident and create a non-slip surface. It also removes, cleans, and/or prepares concrete coatings, traffic lines, and markings.
If depth control is an issue a scarifier is a better option than scabbler. The EDCO Crete-Plane scarifier allows for a more accurate cut. This 8″ rotary cutter will penetrate up to 1/8″ deep, that’s 3,500 PSI (pounds per square inch) of concrete.
Considering it can loosen up to 500 square feet per hour, in an eight hour day it can attack 1,000 lineal feet. Knowing workers would be behind this unit all day EDCO installed a standard vacuum port to enable a dust-free environment on the EDCO scarifiers for their protection. The power source is over the drum to eliminate vibration and maximize surface contact.
Note: this machine includes 78 carbide cutters and 215 spacers.
