What You Need to Know About Handheld Concrete Floor Grinders

Handheld grinding systems are undoubtedly ideal for carrying out jobs in smaller and inaccessible areas due to their lightweight nature and the fact that they are so easy to carry around.

They’re ideal for reaching corners and smaller areas that the walk-behind machine cannot get to, another key factor that makes them so popular.

With this in mind, we are going to talk you through what you need to know about using a concrete handheld grinder in terms of safety, what purposes we’d recommend them being used for and why it may well be the ideal piece of flooring equipment for you.

Handheld concrete grinders, if not used safely, can be incredibly dangerous. When they are being used, some precautions that need to be taken include wearing safety clothing, checking the condition of the hand grinder before using it, choosing the proper tool attachments, and handling the grinder as instructed.


For small areas such as a garage floor or a piece of concrete furniture then a handheld concrete grinder is a brilliant solution. A few other common uses for this type of grinder include:

  • Cutting and grinding iron, steel and other metals, bricks and stones and rusted bolts
  • Cutting up stuff for disposal in the trash
  • Sharpening blades
  • Metalworking and construction
  • Emergency rescues
  • Metal cleaning
  • Stripping, cleaning and deburring tasks
  • Restoring edges on rough tools like hoes

Handheld Concrete Grinders are often workshops, service garages as well as auto body repair shops. Construction workers and contractors frequently use them for preparation and maintenance tasks. These are also easy to store pretty much anywhere in your home, garage, storage closet, workshops or businesses for any given purpose, including DIY or even crafts.
