Kennard 's latest heavy duty, 240V concrete grinders are an attachment to a special, high performance industrial vacuum unit that result in a dust free environment for grinding, polishing, cleaning, leveling, stripping, coatings and glue removal and resurfacing.

These grinders have been introduced across the Kennards Hire branches after proving a popular tool with Kennards Concrete Care customers.

Nigel Garlick owner of Car Pro Automatic at Castle Hill in Sydney, wanted to grind the floor of his workshop back to the bare concrete before repainting it however remembered the job “taking forever” the previous time he did it with a smaller grinder.

After seeing the new unit at Kennards Hire Kellyville, he decided to “give it a go” – and was glad he did. Reporting that it was great, smooth, easy to use, highly productive and a fantastic vacuuming unit.

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.

Chris Turner, works foreman for Victoria’s Basement home ware and gift ware stores and is well aware of its capabilities having hired it along with other concrete surfacing equipment from Kennards Concrete Care for several refurbishments.

“It’s exactly what we require, we grind the concrete back to expose the aggregate and then seal it, we always use Kennards because their equipment is good and the service is excellent,” Chris Turner.

The grinder is the most powerful in the 240V class, with a high production rate and ability to flatten out undulations. It will also grind floors with a concave/convex surface perfectly with no ridges or gouging.

The cyclonic vacuum attachment has HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filtration that maintains suction with fine dust.

Kennards Hire also has 240V concrete mowers, planers and renovators for preparing concrete surfaces.

With a large product range, Kennards Concrete Care also have 415V single head, double head and four head grinders. A second Sydney hire centre has recently opened in Moorebank, with other branches in Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
