SMITH FS3 Series – Shaver/Planer/Scarifier

February 2, 2012

Contractors looking to reduce man-hours when prepping, grooving or removing on asphalt and concrete surfaces are buying the FS3 Series, walk-behind, self-propel or skid-attach Remover. The FS390, depicted is the easiest, fastest, widest and most powerful model available.

The FS3 Series consists of the FS300, walk-behind, FS350, self-propel and FS390, skid-attach surface preparation and removal machines. They are the only machines on the market that can operate at fast or slow rotational speeds to Prep-it, Scarify-it, Plane-it or Shave-it using Diamond Saw Packs, Tungsten Carbide Flails or Road Planing Picks on both concrete or asphalt surfaces. “Add the SMITH ultra-premium cutter drum assemblies and you have hands-down the best built, most feature-rich, all-purpose surface preparators on the market”, says Wade Barrineau, Engineer. “We designed the FS3 Series with a thicker gauge steel, heavier duty drive components, higher industrial grade motors and a more robust bushed cutter drum assembly to take abuse from hard-working contractors.Heavier duty components results in faster cutting power and reduce downtime”, says Barrineau.

Product News Release

November 1, 2011

Longer lasting ultra-premium-grade Diamond and Tungsten Carbide Grinding block assemblies, now available for all popular single and dual Disc Grinders.

SMITH Manufacturing has introduced a new and improved matched set of longer lasting grinding, scraping, flailing and polishing block assemblies designed specifically for rental companies existing single and dual disc grinders. “This newly designed heavy-duty grinding block not only fits all conventional single or dual disc grinders but are longer lasting and offer faster removal speeds with more consistent removal finishes.” says Wade Barrineau, SMITH Manufacturing’s Design Engineer. “Rental Companies that own disc grinders now can choose from three grinding block styles to handle all of their customer’s surface-prep and grinding jobs.

Carbide Scrape-It-Away Holder (P/N: E-12400.2402A) for fast removal of mastics, glues, plastics, epoxies, paints. This holder contains an ultra-premium grade 8-sided sharp 100% tungsten carbide scraping chip held at a fixed angle for effective removal.

Carbide Flail-it Cutter Block Assemblies are available in three cutting styles #1 Strip-it Block (P/N: E-2G0410.15) for removing build-ups and cleaning surfaces, #2 Flail-it Block (P/N: E-2G1519.15) for surface prepping and high spots, #3 Finish-it Block (P/N: E-2G1043.14 ) for fast cleaning of surface build-ups.

Diamond 5 Edge Grinding Inserts, now available from 6 to 200 diamond grit sizes are a larger 5-edge ultra-premium grade diamond segment that yields longer service life and faster grinding speeds for every type of concrete grinding application.

“What makes the new SMITH grinding blocks different from others is unique sintering process starting with a 975 grade diamond or an ultra-premium grade tungsten carbide that results in the longest lasting, fastest performing grinder”, says Barrineau.

SMITH Manufacturing has produced high performance removal equipment and ultra-premium grade cutters since 1990. Founded by Steven Smith, former Striper and President of Pave-Mark Corporation, Mr. Smith sees strong growth in the rental marketplace by partnering with the industry leaders to promote the benefit of quality surface-prep and eradication methods for every application project. Something as simple as renting a scarifier or grinder for every concrete project reduces the risk of job failure.” says Smith.
