If you’re shopping for a lightweight floor grinder that’s best for lighter surface preparation tasks, consider a planetary floor grinder. These get their name in how their discs rotate the tooling – There is a large main disc that acts as the “sun. ” From that, smaller discs rotate around the large one while also revolving on their own axis point. The large disc doesn’t actually touch the floor, leaving the smaller orbiting discs to do the work. This creates an effective grind with lighter pressure.
Planetary grinders are typically used for simple, light grinding tasks, like evening out a floor, grinding away pits, or creating a light scratch profile for a urethane coating. While they are good to use to polish stone or concrete surfaces, this task should only be performed by someone who is experienced in using the grinding equipment.
