A compact solutionPublished 29/6, 2020 at 17:00
In business since 1955, General Equipment Company is a family owned manufacturer of hole digging, surface preparation, dust collection, plus portable ventilation, air scrubbing and lighting equipment.
Its latest development is the new SG7 SurfacePro edge grinder which is an ideal edge grinder for everyone from 'do it yourself' enthusiasts to commercial contractors. Intended for smaller areas, it can accommodate a wide variety of surface preparation applications, such as levelling concrete and asphalt with what is said to be unmatched productivity and versatility. Its heavy gauge steel frame is ergonomically designed to allow the operator to work in a fully upright position which reduces the potential for lower back pain, strained knees or other occupational related health issues, all while increasing productivity over hand held grinders.
The compact size of the SG7 is said to provide a unique advantage over other edge grinders on the market. With a detachable handle and weighing only12.3kg without a blade, it is easy to lift and transport, fitting in almost any size vehicle. It also provides the rigidity to remove materials with more accuracy and control than larger machines that lack the same agility and manoeuvrability. Other standard features include ‘Anti-Vibe’ caster wheels and a 38.1mm diameter dust connection port and hose to handle applications with dust control requirements. The SG7 also comes with a flexible dust shroud that incorporates a flip up edge for improved viewing of the grinder cup edge when operating near features such as walls. The edge grinder comes supplied with a 178mm diamond cup wheel.
