Husqvarna rebrands Blastrac floor machines

Following its acquisition of Blastrac, Husqvarna has rebranded several lines of floor surface preparation machines.

Following its acquisition of Blastrac, announced in November 2020, Husqvarna Construction, Stockholm, Sweden, has launched several rebranded Blastrac and Diamatic surface preparation products.

As of June 17, the product line includes floor scrapers, shavers, scarifiers and floor grinders and is available in the United States and Canada.

“Bolstering Husqvarna’s current concrete grinding offering [are] some exciting new products—the addition of scarifiers, scrappers and shavers,” Husqvarna Product Marketing Manager Levi Smiley says. “We have one of the best offerings in each application and product segment because we are striving to not only be specialists in the surface preparation industry, but also the partner of choice for customers.

Husqvarna's walk-behind and ride floor scrapers can be used to remove soft and hard floor coverings, adhesives and coatings in electric-, battery- and propane-powered options.

The company's walk-behind elite concrete shaver and ride milling machines are chosen when operators want to achieve enhanced depths in a controlled pattern.

Husqarna’s scarifiers are designed to quickly and cleanly remove concrete to help level slabs, expose large aggregate before concrete polishing and remove coatings in demolition applications.

Single and planetary grinders remove coatings, prepare and polish concrete floors. The machines feature electric and gas single-disc grinders, and the planetary grinders are available in electric- and propane-powered versions.

Husqvarna says the company has enhanced its existing surface preparation portfolio by bringing advanced shot-blasting, scraping, shaving and scarifying solutions to Husqvarna customers and partners. In turn, Blastrac customers and partners now have access to adjacent products such as compactors, concrete placement equipment, sawing and drilling equipment and demolition robots, as well as a wide service offering, Levi says.
