To provide contractors with the best tools for effective concrete preparation, surface preparation company National Flooring Equipment exhibited at ConExpo-Con/Agg in Las Vegas. At its booth D2926, visitors had the opportunity to test drive a range of National Flooring Equipment’s heavyweight floor scrapers, including the newest and most powerful machines, the ‘Viking’ and ‘Rogue’.

Powered by a turbo diesel Kubota engine, the Viking is a 2,586kg ride in scraper designed for heavy duty outdoor work on roadways, bridge decks, airport runways and more. Windshield wipers, headlights and a light curtain enable contractors to work safely in different weather conditions or during overnight roadworks. The cab also includes a range of features designed to improve operator comfort and safety, including cab air filtration and noise cancelling properties, as well as a cup holder, USB charger and spring loaded seat. National Flooring Equipment’s booth also featured a range of its most popular ride on scrapers designed for large scale, outdoor applications. For smaller projects, National Flooring Equipment also exhibited its latest walk behind scraper, the Rogue, which is a fully electric, modular machine that features an adjustable blade and precision steering for enhanced manoeuvrability.

“The biggest names in construction head to ConExpo to demonstrate how contractors benefit from their equipment, and we’re excited to do the same,” explained Connie Hardy, vice president of marketing at National Flooring Equipment. “We often find that contractors aren’t fully aware of the importance of proper surface preparation, so by attending ConExpo we plan to raise awareness and equip contractors with the tools needed to remove floor coverings and prepare concrete. We also hope to get feedback from contractors trying equipment on the booth, because it helps us ensure our products remain at the cutting edge of surface preparation technology. Choosing the correct machine for the job is one thing, but knowing how to use it correctly and maintain it is equally important. The specialist training we can give from our stand will help operators get the most out of our equipment, improve efficiency on site and extend machinery lifespan.”
