Planers (Scarifiers), Grinders, Trowels and Screeds

At Gaston Rentals, we rent a full line of surface preparation equipment including concrete planers, grinders and trowels.

Concrete planers, also known as scarifiers, are ideal for jobs where removal of large layers of concrete is required. Perfect for sidewalk trip hazard repair, removal of concrete coatings and traffic line and marking removal. Concrete planers provide an 8″ working width and will scarify approximately 350-500 sq. ft. per hour at a depth per pass of 1/8″ or traffic line removal at 800 to 1,000 lineal ft. per hour and are available in gas and electric models.

Concrete grinders are ideal for jobs where you are skimming the surface of concrete for cleaning or light grinding of surface areas. We stock Single disc grinders, dual disc grinders and even four disc grinders in Gas and Electric models. Those are great for removing mastics, thin-set, high spots, epoxies and urethanes on concrete. Grinders can also help to lightly texturize slippery concrete surfaces.

Concrete trowels are ideal for concrete finishing of newly poured concrete.

Concrete finishing screeds and Bull Floats are the ideal equipment for your concrete jobs and are available with 12′ boards.
