Rip-R-Stripper Made for Floor Removal

General Equipment Co. has introduced the CTS12 Rip-R-Stripper, designed to remove ceramic tile, hardwood and other tough floor coverings.

The unit also allows rental operators to make more revenue from the electric-powered breakers in their inventories, the manufacturer says.

The CTS12 acts as a tool carrier for electric-powered breakers with ratings between 30 and 45 foot-pounds of force, including popular models of Hilti, Bosch, Makita and Hitachi breakers.

Unlike random orbit-type tile stripper machines, the CTS12 provides a direct-impulse force that supplies adequate power to break through the high bond strengths of mastics, glues and thin-set materials, according to the manufacturer.

Design and Configuration

The CTS12’s configuration is designed to enhance maneuverability, control and visibility. Users can operate the electric-powered breakers in an upright position, increasing productivity and reducing strain on knees and lower backs, the supplier says.

The adjustable handle is designed to enhance operator comfort and rubber-insulated to reduce vibration. The handle also folds for storage and transportation.

Breakers mount quickly to the CTS12, and blow force angles can be adjusted to accommodate varying material types and bond strengths, the company says. The unit operates from a standard 115VAC, 15-amp power source.

Accessories Available

General Equipment also offers a wide range of industry-standard accessory tools, including chisels and scraper blades, for a variety of floor-covering removal applications. Other equipment in the Rip-R-Stripper line includes models for removing carpet, ceramic tile, linoleum and mastics.

Based in Owatonna, MN, General Equipment is a family-owned manufacturer of earth augers, ventilation blowers, asphalt cutters and surface preparation equipment.
