  • The ergonomic features of this machine reduce operator fatigue while optimizing time and labor savings. The compact design makes it ideal for use in tight spaces.


    Floor lifting easy task. With the National 5280 Self Propelled machine it’s faster, easier and smarter. With variable speed, a removable saddle weight helps to increase or decrease pressure and traction.


    Oscillating head rotates the cutting blade to cut through a range of materials over various substrates and extends the life cycle of machine while reducing maintenance cost.

  • Blades play the largest part of the sucess in the SPEED of removal of your floors.

    The style of blade makes a difference in how quickly the floor covering will remove. On concrete subfloors removing vinyls, carpets or lino bevelled up blades work best and don’t often require extra weight on the machine to help it remove.
    When using a regular flat blade, bending up the corner of the blade will prevent it from digging into the subfloor. The blade holder height and angle can be adjusted to a 45 degree angle to the floorboards to ensure no damage.


    Floor lifting machines with a changeable cutting head are designed to swivel to keep the blade in direct contact with the floor. A combination of the right cutting head, size of blade, the blade angle and weight of the machine helps to ensure the fastest and easiest removal process possible. Thickness of the blade, the width, sharpness and angle also play a role in this.
