Kennards Hire  has introduced a new range of single head, heavy duty 240V concrete grinders into their hire equipment fleet to suit applications in all environments.  

The concrete grinders have been introduced across the Kennards Hire branch network after proving popular with Kennards Concrete Care customers.  

Kennards’ concrete grinders are attached to a special, high-performance industrial vacuum unit to help create an almost dust-free environment during grinding, polishing, levelling, cleaning, stripping, coatings and glue removal as well as resurfacing applications.  

Customers who have hired concrete grinders from Kennards have appreciated the machine’s efficiency, performance and speed.  

Nigel Garlick, owner of mechanical repairs firm, Car Pro Automatic at Castle Hill in Sydney hired the concrete grinder to grind the floor of his workshop back to the bare concrete before repainting it. A smaller grinder used on a similar job previously took a lot of time.  

Nigel found the new heavy duty concrete grinder smooth, very easy to use and highly productive.  

Wayne Pratt, operations manager in Alice Springs for Murray River North, which constructs homes, police stations, schools and other facilities from transportable buildings in remote areas, also praised the machine.  

While constructing a new duplex for schoolteachers at Pipalyatjara, 200km southwest of Uluru, rain ruined the newly poured concrete veranda, which required the crew to grind the slab back and resurface it.  

They hired a grinder from Kennards in Alice Springs, which helped them complete the job in the shortest possible time.  

Chris Turner, works foreman for Victoria’s Basement homeware and giftware stores hired the concrete grinder along with other concrete surfacing equipment from Kennards Concrete Care for several refurbishments.

Good equipment and excellent service were the reasons given by Chris for hiring the machines from Kennards.  

Key features of heavy duty concrete grinders from Kennards:  

  • Highly powerful in the 240V class
  • High production rate and ability to flatten out undulations
  • Also grinds floors with a concave/convex surface perfectly with no ridges or gouging
  • Cyclonic vacuum attachment has HEPA filtration that maintains suction with fine dust
Kennards Hire also offers 240V concrete mowers, concrete planers and concrete renovators for preparing concrete surfaces.

A more extensive range including 415V single head, double head and four head concrete grinders is available from Kennards Concrete Care, which has just opened a second Sydney hire centre at Moorebank and also operates outlets in Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
