It is perfect for scrubbing and buffing all commercial floors, including VCT tile, ceramic, and terrazzo floors. It is extremely easy to clean and wipes down easily after each use to keep it in a nice shiny state. The dual capacitors help the machine during start up on surfaces with lots of friction, like carpeting.

Overall, this is an unbelievably tough machine, at an even more unbelievable price!

Great Machine With A Little Practice
Review By: Albert on 7/2/21
(5 out of 5)
The machine is going to move to the left when you turn it on, so just lift the handle to make it turn to the right. Practice, and you will see that it is actually easy to use.

Too Difficult to Control
Review By: Al on 6/29/21
(1 out of 5)

Cons: Hard to Use


Would you recommend this product to a friend?
Unlikely

I don't deny that this machine can be an effective cleaner, my problem with it is that it is too difficult to control. The description does not state this. It was only after I purchased this machine and spoke with the company about it, that they notified me that this machine is known for being difficult to control. One of the flaws is that in order to turn the machine on, you have press the red button and at the same time apply pressure to the hand lever. This does not allow for a firm grip when starting. When the machine is turned on, it's at full speed and power; and every time I turned it on, whether on a hard floor or carpet, it shot to the left (fast), and I was unable to control it. I just simply could not control this machine.

Great machine, great price.

subfloor prep
Review By: JZ on 7/7/14

Pros: Easy to Use, Powerful


Would you recommend this product to a friend?
Definitely Yes

"I bought this buffer to prep wood subfloors before installing wood flooring. The buffer works just as good as the ""name brand"" buffers. Time will tell if it will last as long.

One thing that would make it better is if it had a port to hook a vacuum to it."
