Air powered drive moves the equipment at varying speeds up to a maximum of 40 feet / minute requiring only compressed air as a power source. Thumb controls with motorcycle style grips give the operator precise variable speed control in both the forward and reverse directions. The drive is equipped with a quick attach feature to allow simple connection and removal from the load. This allows a single drive to be shared by many pieces of equipment with the purchase of additional quick attach plates. The quick attach feature also allows the drive to be stored out of the way when not in use. The operator's control console has an on/off switch, emergency stop, and gauges to monitor air inlet pressure and drive wheel traction pressure. The drive wheel traction pressure control located on the operators control console controls the amount of drive wheel "down″ force, hence the amount of traction. The pressure in the air stroke actuator is monitored by the pressure gauge located on control console.
Air-Powered Scabblers utilizes piston-mounted carbide bits to hammer concrete or asphalt surfaces, removing bulk material at penetrations up to 1/4″ per pass. These scabblers leave a rougher surface than concrete grinders or planers. The application includes removing spalling & oil-soaked concrete for new overlayments, ramping large slab differences, texturing parking deck & wheelchair ramps and producing slip-resistant surfaces.
