Product Description

This Viper 17" floor buffer is a tough machine, and it comes at a great economical price! 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. Whereas the triple planetary gears, located in the transmission, power the brush or bonnet over those high-friction surfaces with ease. The 1.5 HP motor powers the machine through thick and thin and is backed by a 3-year warranty.

This machine can be used for buffing. It can be used for stripping. It can be used for carpet bonneting. It is so powerful, it can be used to do it all!

You can find out more about these functions in our janitorial how-to center, which includes walkthroughs for carpet bonneting and stripping a floor, as well as providing spray buffing instructions, procedures & techniques.

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

If you are looking for something in a larger size or a lighter body style, please take a look at our complete line of rotary floor buffers.

Great buffer

Been doing floors for over 20 years. Got this viper to replace a very old 20 inch and it works perfectly. Someone said works as good as the name brand, This Is The Name Brand. This is the brand most janitor supply stores sell. Another said hard to control, not true. It works exactly how all these style buffers work. If you've never used one yes they take some practice, all of them do. So take it from someone who's used these things for over 20 years this one works great and is a good size for small and big jobs.

Great Machine With A Little Practice

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.
