PRODUCT REVIEW: HUSQVARNA PG820 REMOTE-CONTROLLED (RC) FLOOR GRINDER
Once again, Ace Cutting Equipment & Supply offers you the very latest and greatest in concrete equipment technology, with the Husqvarna PG820 RC: a state-of-the-art floor grinder that is operated by remote control.
Many in the concrete trade – particularly those old enough to be a master mason by now and older – have grown up with movies depicting robots (or “robits” as my grandma called them) that attack humanity, as in The Terminator. For some, the fear that robots will take away our jobs is more realistic and pressing concern.
If you’re one with a dislike of robots of any sort, the Husqvarna remote-controlled PG820 floor grinder just might change your mind. While it does not necessarily mean less jobsite staffing is needed, it can (and likely will) save a significant amount of total time needed on your project.
Compared to the renowned PG 820 floor grinder, the Remote-Controlled (RC) version enables significantly higher productivity and even better work results. What’s more, it offers ergonomic operation and effortless transportation to and from the work site.
The Husqvarna PG820 RC is suitable for industrial applications and is an excellent choice for concrete floor preparation and repair, as well as polishing and grinding applications. A concrete floor grinder that offers the best of all options, it works both wet and dry, of course.
In short, with the PG820 RC, Husqvarna makes robotics and technology work in service of you.
By the way, it’s also the only remote grinder with Dual Drive™.
HUSQVARNA DUAL DRIVE TECHNOLOGY™
Dual Drive™ is Husqvarna’s exclusive twin motor technology that provides a revolutionizing low-maintenance, gear-driven planetary head rotation system. It allows the operator to:
- Selectively control speed or direction of either the planetary head or the satellite discs. This means you get an unlimited potential number of combinations of speed and direction.
- Optimize the grinder for each job.
- Create more friction on diamond tools, delivering greater width of grinding and higher productivity (with same direction of rotation).
- Create less friction on diamond tools, delivering less powerful grinding for easier handling and finesse, such as polishing.
- Use a wider range of applications compared to any other planetary machine.
The Husqvarna PG820 RC is available in 480V -3ph. It features battery-powered transportation, and easy set up: Redi-Lock® provides quick tool changes and robust attachment. It offers FWD / REV direction controls on both grinding disc and planetary head. It also allows you to grind and prepare at the same time – get more grinding hours done in one day!
