Second-Generation CTS12 from General Equipment

By General Equipment   


May 25, 2016 - The second generation of General Equipment's CTS 12 Rip-R-Stripper offers reduced maintenance and increased productivity, the company says, for surface-prep work such as removing ceramic tile, hardwood and other tough floor coverings.

With a new, easier operating on/off control, the CTS12 Gen 2 configuration lets users operate electric-powered breakers in an upright position, which helps increase productivity while reducing strain. The updated tool accepts new mounting kits for the Hilti TE-1000-AVR breaker and continues to work with popular models of Bosch, Makita and Hitachi breakers with ratings from 30 to 45 foot-pounds of force.

The accessory tool angle can be adjusted to nine self-locking positions, so operators can find the best performing approach for each application. Both wheels can be adjusted to accomodate breaker variances, helping keep the chisel flat on the working surface so the entire tool edge hits the glue line. This also helps minimize uneven tool wear and reduces operator force required.

The Anti-Vibe handle is adjustable to enhance operator comfort, and is rubber-insulated to reduce vibration. It also folds for storage and transport.

Breakers mount quickly to the CTS12’s heavy-duty, unitized welded steel frame. The unit operates from a standard 115 VAC, 15-ampere power source.

General Equipment Company offers a range of industry-standard, 1-inch-hexagon-by-6-inch shank accessory tools, including chisels and scraper blades (up to 12-inches wide) for handling a variety of floor-covering removal applications.
