Why Push Your Sander When You Can Drive it Instead?

PFS riding floor sander

Contracting is a tiring job. You’re constantly lugging around large pieces of equipment, pushing that equipment across the floor, and getting down on your hands and knees.

Plus, there’s the mentally tiring aspect of taking measurements and being meticulous about your entire process to prevent mistakes.

Sanding is probably the most crucial aspect of the hardwood floor installation process, so it’s also the biggest area where things can go wrong. If you make a mistake, such as not following the correct grit sequence, you can seriously impact the quality of your refinishing job or even the floor itself.

Fatigue: Your enemy

Being on your A-game at every new jobsite, whether it’s 6 AM or 6 PM, will prevent you from making mistakes. So it’s important to take every chance to eliminate fatigue, which is often the biggest contributor to mess-ups on the job.

If you make your living as a sports floor contractor, fatigue is  a big concern because you’re constantly working on floors with large square footage.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to ride your sander and eliminate most of the fatigue involved in the sanding process?

The CFS Rider: Your solution

The CFS Rider allows you to do just that. Built in-house at City Floor Supply, this machine makes sanding and refinishing a large floor quicker and easier than ever before.

The Rider is made up of two drum sanders attached to a cart for smooth and comfortable completion of commercial-scale finishing jobs.

You can choose from Clarke American 12, Lagler Superhummel, and Galaxy BD 12 sanders for your CFS Rider.

Here’s what’s included in the package:

  • Two sanders
  • CityFloor Rider Cart 3 Phase
  • 250 Lineal Ft. of 10/4 non-marking yellow cable
  • Dual Ram Horns
  • All 30A/250VAC 3-phase Hubbell plugs and connectors
  • Complete Poly-V pulley system

Here are some of the benefits of using the CFS Rider:

Increased productivity on the job means you’ll save time and money.

Since it includes two sanders, the Rider gives you double the power of a single sander. You can sand a large floor in less than half the time it takes with a walk-behind sander, which will save you a tremendous amount of time, labor costs, and energy in the long run.

The machine’s hydrostatic drive allows you to shift into forward and reverse instantly and maneuver the machine easily. The Rider may be big, but it’s nimble. Its gear-reduction box allows you to retain the full power of the motors while reducing the machine’s RPM.

The cart’s large, non-marking wheels also contribute to the machine’s outstanding maneuverability.

Driving is much more comfortable than walking.

Why push around a heavy sander when you can ride one instead and complete the job in half the time?
