Ride-on floor scrapers have revolutionized the way we approach flooring removal, offering unmatched speed, precision, and productivity compared to traditional methods. 

A commercial floor scraper is one of the most versatile and useful tools you can have in your surface preparation equipment inventory. Manual “shovel-style” scrapers can take hours or even days of back-breaking labor. Alternatively, commercial floor prep equipment allows you to easily take up sheets of flooring, reaching all the way down to the base or subfloor in a short period of time. 

The three main types of commercial scrapers offered by our floor prep experts at Buy Manufacturers Direct are hand held, walk-behind, and ride-on. While each type of floor-scraping equipment is useful in flooring demolition, we aim to show you exactly why a ride-on floor scraper is the ideal tool to achieve the greatest results for your projects. 

Why You Need a Ride-On Floor Scraper

Floor scrapers offer the versatility that most other surface preparation equipment can’t provide. While floor grinders and shot blasters are great for concrete and stone, floor scrapers and floor strippers can take up the following materials: 

  • Carpet and tack strip
  • Tile and mortar or thinset
  • Rubber or mastic coatings
  • Wood or parquet
  • Vinyl or linoleum floor coverings

Floor scrapers can also be used outdoors to take up asphalt and rubberized coatings on sports tracks and tennis courts, giving you the enhanced ability to take on a wider variety of jobs and increase your specialization. 

A ride-on floor scraper can easily remove layers of those materials in a fraction of the time it takes to use a manual or even a walk-behind scraper. While different models vary in speed, they range from 150 feet per minute for battery-powered varieties to over 400 feet per minute for the larger propane-powered models. This gives you a massive increase in productivity while reducing worker fatigue. 

When Should You Use a Ride-On Floor Scraper?

Having a powerful, ride-on floor scraper is ideal when you’re working in an open, level space with few to no impediments, like columns, walls, or furnishings. 

Many flooring contractors use ride-on floor scrapers for: 

  • Outdoor spaces, including playground surface, basketball court, and tennis court resurfacing
  • Gymnasiums
  • Warehouses
  • Office buildings
  • Retail establishments
  • Schools
  • Basements or garages
  • Common areas in dorms, apartment buildings, and other communal living spaces.
