Jan. 19, 2010 – General Equipment Company says its new DG7 surface grinder harnesses the performance of a professional-duty, high-speed surface grinder in a small, ergonomic design. From professional contractors to do-it-yourselfers, the company says the DG7 is a popular choice for concrete grinding and polishing jobs because of the machine’s unmatched versatility and ease of operation. It also allows the operator to work in an upright position, reducing lower back pain and overall fatigue.
The DG7 is powered by a 2,300-watt, high-speed grinder, which can use a wide variety of 7-inch diamond segment discs to perform many types of concrete grinding and other surface preparation applications. To aid in producing a level surface, dual gas shocks are incorporated to dampen the grinder’s recoil. The DG7 can also handle small concrete polishing jobs when used with General Equipment’s Pro Polish attachments.
Transporting the DG7 is as easy as operating it, since the machine weighs just 55 pounds—a fraction of the weight of some other upright surface grinders. The small size also allows it to fit in the trunk or backseat of compact vehicles. It can even be disassembled if needed to further reduce size for transport.
Other features include an ergonomic handle, which allows the machine to be operated from either side, and the handle’s height adjustment provides additional operator comfort. The DG7 also includes full-swivel, non-marking caster wheels and a 2-1/4-inch diameter vacuum connection port for applications that require dust control.
In addition to the DG7, General Equipment offers a full line of single- and dual-head surface grinders. They are available with electric, gasoline or propane power sources, and multiple attachments can be used to accommodate many surface preparation or concrete polishing applications.
