Runyon Surface Prep’s Magnetic Preload System allows for fast tooling changes, which means less downtime on the job.
A ride on power trowel is a game changer when it comes to productivity on large polishing jobs, however many of the methods used to attach diamond tools to the trowels require an inordinate amount of time to move from one grit to another, killing momentum with un-needed downtime.
With Runyon Surface Prep’s Magnetic Preload System, your production stays on track. This versatile system boosts efficiency by having a second set of tools prepped, ready and waiting. Switching from one grit to another happens in seconds. This system is not only ideal for power trowels; auto scrubbers and swing machines can also benefit from this innovative attachment system.
Easy Access to a Variety of Tools
The Magnetic Preload System allows for the fast and efficient changing of any 3″ velcro-backed tooling on a standard 14″ or 16″ pad driver. The system consists of a stainless steel ring that bolts to the pad driver and high density polymer tool holder rings with embedded magnets on one side and six recessed slots for 3″ velcro backed puck style tools on the other.
To change tools, simply pull off the polymer tool holder currently on the driver and slide a new, fully loaded polymer tool holder on. Alignment bosses on the stainless steel ring, with corresponding guide holes on the polymer rings make achieving a secure and proper placement automatic. Each setup comes with one stainless steel ring and two polymer tool holders, so you can always have your next step of tools loaded and ready to go
Consider pairing this system with the quality tools in the Runyon Surface Prep diamond tooling line (the RSP Q8 Turbo Tulips, RSP Copper Transitionals and RSP Wet Slick Resins) to maximize your production efforts.
Large Jobs Need a Ride-On Trowel Machine
A ride-on trowel machine is one of the most versatile pieces of equipment available. It finishes, as well as polishes floors. Using a power trowel can reduce labor by 75% while still covering up to 10,000 sq. ft. per hour per grit. The machine’s wet process eliminates airborne silica hazards, creating a safer work environment for your crew.
