King Concepts , attending World of Concrete with its US distributors Niagara Machine Inc and Hard Rock Tool, experienced unprecedented interest and demand for their range of concrete floor grinding and polishing equipment this year.
Located on the second floor of the South Hall building King Concepts had a presence that could not be missed. With four times the amount of interest of previous years, the team was kept busy for the four day show.
Great interest was directed at the quality and strength of the ProGrind range of machinery as well as an acknowledgement of the practical application knowledge possessed by the individuals from each company manning the booth. Real life solutions for real life problems were definitely on the agenda.
Newly released for the Show the King Concepts Hydraulic attachment, especially designed for the Toro Dingo and other skid steer machinery, was warmly welcomed by those looking to branch out into other areas with their already existing equipment and by many in the rental industry looking for other alternative marketplaces.
The Hydraulic machine will make parking decks and other hard to get to projects easier. Designed as a 680 or 820 head the attachment is easy to transport, use and maintain.
Contractors were generally impressed by the performance rates of the King machinery and the outcomes generated with some great samples of Hiperfloor on display to impress.
Particular attention was also paid to the lifespan of the machinery and the generally long hours before service or attention is needed. In general the ProGrind floor grinders don’t require a main service (bearings/belt change) until around 1000-1500 hours, with Planetary drive sprocket around 500 hours and the Planetary chain ring around 500-1000hours, these items being really the only typical maintenance items on the machines.
End users were surprised to hear that the very first prototype, being 10 years old, is still in working operation today, with very little maintenance required.
