Power, production & performance with the ROLL ride-on floor lifter

Remote controlled floor stripperWhen a furniture store calls on you to get the floor removed within the next 24 hours... and the entire tiled floor needs to be removed and prepared ready for a layer to come and re-lay a floor... the only machine to call on is the Ride-on ROLL RO-1 Floor Lifter.

We took a look at how the ROLL RO-1 Floor Lifter made a difference across an impressive span of 270m2 of floor.

The ceramic tiles were stuck down hard to the concrete substrate/floor, which made the ROLL ride-on machine the tool of choice. The defit project began at record pace.

To begin the project, a single tile was removed to give the ride-on machine a starting point for the blade to get in under.

After this short preparation work, removal of the ceramics was easy. Our client benefitted from the unique design of the track-mounted ride-on floor lifter, with its:

  • 120mm wide stripper tool – made from high-alloy spring steel, the stripper tool hit directly under the tile and into the tile adhesive, easily detaching and removing the tile.
  • With the flexible tooling axis the angle could be set and kept at the same angle to the ground – even when only one side of the machine/(chain) was balanced on the tiles. This unique feature helps the machine to continuing driving forward.
  • The high traction chain chassis had enough grip even on the slippery floor surface to apply the necessary power and impact to the tile.
  • Smooth production thanks to quick removal of the tile remains from directly in front of the machine – allowing the blade to have a free impact and the scope to continue moving.

The performance? On average, the ride-on floor lifting machine removed the floor covering at a commendable 50m2/hour.
