New dimension in surface preparationPublished 3/10, 2022 at 10:34
Husqvarna Construction has launched the first wave of its recently rebranded Blastrac and Diamatic surface preparation product range. As of 17 June, the fully integrated offering, including floor scrapers, shavers, scarifiers and floor grinders, is available to order in the United States and Canada.
With the first wave of rebranded Blastrac and Diamatic products, Husqvarna Construction further shapes and complements it’s offering for floor grinding, scarifying, shaving and scraping. Levi Smiley, product marketing manager for surface preparation, outlines the new product offerings: “Bolstering Husqvarna’s current concrete grinding offering comes some exciting new products with the addition of scarifiers, scrappers and shavers. We have one of the best offerings in each application and product segment, because we are striving to not only be specialists in the surface preparation industry, but also the partner of choice for customers.” The range comprises of:
Walk behind and ride on scrapers can be used to remove soft and hard resilient floor coverings, adhesives and coatings in electric, battery and propane powered options.
Husqvarna walk behind ‘elite’ concrete shaver and ride on milling machines are chosen when rapidly achieving enhanced depths in a controlled pattern are desired.
These are used to level large surfaces and remove thick coatings. They quickly and cleanly remove concrete to help level slabs, expose large aggregate before concrete polishing and coatings removal in demolition applications.
Single and planetary grinders
These are ideal for removing coatings as well as preparing and polishing concrete floors. All the new product line features electric and gas single disc grinders, as well the blending of new planetary machines in both electric and propane footprints.
The second wave of rebranded Blastrac products, targeting spring 2023, will include shot and steel blasting solutions and associated dust extractors. For now, these products are available under the Blastrac brand.
Husqvarna has considerably enhanced the existing surface preparation portfolio by bringing advanced shot blasting, scraping, shaving and scarifying solutions to Husqvarna customers and partners. In turn, Blastrac customers and partners now have access to adjacent products such as compactors, concrete placement equipment, sawing and drilling equipment and demolition robots, as well as a wide service offering.
Levi Smiley concludes: “By combining our expertise, we will offer 373+ years (333 Husqvarna + 40 Blastrac/Diamatic) of deeper know how to our surface preparation customers. With wider options, and as one passionate team, we are committed to shaping the surface preparation industry of tomorrow.”
