There are certainly a couple of things to consider prior to deciding which type you want to use. A concrete floor grinder can be utilised for lots of different applications varying from cleaning concrete floors to getting rid of concrete coatings to polishing concrete floors.

With this in mind, our mini-guide will talk you through three of the most popular and widely used varieties of concrete floor grinders and give you a breakdown of each one.

Handheld Floor Grinders

Handheld concrete grinders are the most widely used for edgework and hard to reach areas. Often utilised for floor grinding applications and polishing concrete countertops. Two of the most popular sizes tend to come between 4 – 5 inches and 7 – 9 inches. These are frequently used for the purpose of smoothing out rough patches on a concrete floor, surface preparation for coatings like epoxy, and for polishing concrete countertops.

Walk-behind Concrete Floor Grinder

These vary in size and you can get much smaller ones but also utilize a much larger model for a more substantial project. Walk-behind floor grinders also can be used for the purpose of covering a wider surface area. These particular floor grinding machines are ideal for quickly getting rid of coatings such as epoxy, paint, tile glue, mastic, and thin-set.

These can also be used to polish concrete floors in locations such as residential homes, commercial buildings and warehouses. Walk-behind floor grinders can come equipped with anything from 1 disc on the bottom up to 5 or 6 discs. Quite often this particular model proves to be very popular.

Ride-On Floor Grinder

This variety of floor grinder is often used to grind and polish commercial flooring so this could classify as anything from shopping centres, showrooms, distribution centres and warehouse floors. A ride-on floor grinder is able to grind and polish up to 5 feet wide in one pass, this is a key factor that enables this type of machine to produce a finished, smooth and glossy floor.
