General Equipment Co.'s FCS16 Rip-R-Stripper, an electric-powered floor-covering stripper, is designed for removing materials such as carpet, ceramic tile, linoleum and mastics. The Rip-R-Stripper is built with a ¾-hp, 115/230 VAC, 60-Htz electric motor. With an exciter unit mounted directly to the driveshaft, the machine used downward force to bore into and strip away the applied floor covering and adhesive. External weights can be added to provide extra force for removing tough residues and to increase material removal rates. Producing less than 70 dBA, operation noise is quiet and safe.
