General Equipment introduces the FCS5 Rip-R-Stripper hand-held unit specifically designed for scraping floor coverings in confined spaces. With a cutting width of 5 inches, the FCS5 is designed for use in closets, stairways, foyers and other small work areas where larger equipment is difficult to maneuver. The unit operates from a standard 115-volt power source and cuts at a rate of 2,500 oscillations per minute. It also removes vinyl composition tiles, sheet linoleum, rubber-backed carpet and a wide variety of mastics and adhesives. The random orbit blade action of the unit maximizes material removal rates, while also reducing operator fatigue.
