"FS050 Scarifier - If we were designing the perfect handheld scarifier, we'd make it powerful, rugged and small enough to fit in tight places. Oh, and give us all-day long cutter life. In other words, we'd like to suspend the laws of physics. We're not sure how SMITH crammed so much removal performance into something that fits in your hand, but we're not complaining. Pair it with an air or electric 7" angle grinder, and you'll have one screaming scarifier in your hand for prepping any concrete, asphalt or steel substrate. Now you have reason to rid yourself of all those slow edging sanding discs."
