A new heavy duty 240V concrete grinder from Kennards Hire has helped Libby McLean produce a polished stone finish on the carport floor and driveway of her home.
A fashion industry professional, Libby was involved in the renovation and landscaping of her recently purchased mid-20th century home. The concrete grinders hired by her were not performing to her expectations.
Kennards Hire Belmont, which had recently taken delivery of a new heavy-duty satellite grinder, supplied the machine to Libby. Branch manager Tony Havis personally delivered the equipment at Libby’s house and spent an hour fitting the right grinding stone for the job as well as providing a demonstration of the machine’s functions.
Libby ground 2-3mm off the new carport floor and driveway to produce a polished stone finish, which she described as ‘a cool and unique entrance, opposed to plain concrete or exposed aggregate’. She appreciates the assistance extended by Kennards Hire in terms of addressing her specific requirements, explaining the machine’s operation and helping her get the best results.
Having completed the job in extra quick time, she compared the machine’s operation to using a floor buffer.
Kennards Hire also supplies a special high performance vacuum unit, which attaches to the grinder for dry grinding applications.

Kennards Hire operates 124 equipment hire centres around Australia.
