Shave Time with your SMITH FS351 Diamond Shaver

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

shave time

WHO: Professional flooring contractors will earn more with a SMITH FS351 Shaver by cutting their time to prepare concrete floors

HOW: SMITH Dealers need to demonstrate the SMITH FS351 on their flooring jobs and if it does not save them time, we will give them a $100.00 savings coupon for SMITH removers, cutters or parts.

WHAT: The SMITH FS351 Diamond SHAVERS are the newest tool offerings that help flooring contractors reduce their labor, equipment and material costs significantly over traditional diamond grinding or scarification. SHAVERS look like traditional concrete scarifiers, but instead of a drum outfitted with flailing cutters, it has a series of stacked diamond blades assembled on a drum that rotates more than two times faster.

The SMITH FS351 Concrete Shaver is a self-propelled machine had the most power (20 HP) and widest removal width (16″) from any competitive model. “The ability to prepare multiple surface with a variety of cutter drums and the precision of the removal controls was the biggest advantage”

The SMITH FS351 is a model in the FS3 Series built by SMITH Manufacturing in Pompano Beach, Florida.

SMITH is a leading manufacturer of high performance surface preparation equipment and cutter tools designed to help hard working contractors remove faster, easier and cost-effective. The FS3 series consists of the walk-behind FS300, the self-propelled FS351, and the skid-attachment FS391 surface-preparation drum-style machines, powered by electric, gas, propane or hydraulics, for use with a scarifier flail cutter at low RPM, or as a diamond shaver at high RPM speeds.FS3 Series Diamond and Scarification Drums

SPECS: The SMITH FS351 equipment is capable of at least a 16″ width groove in a single pass using Dry-cut diamond segmented multi-surface blades stacked or ganged on an arbor, Tungsten carbide planing picks or Tungsten carbide flail cutters on a drum. The SMITH FS351 equipment is a hydraulic drive system with variable speed controls to ensure uniform and consistent width, depth, straightness and surface finish.

When using diamond blades, the arbor is capable of mounting a variety of blade types designed for the surface hardness and treatment of the target medium. The cutting blade package will vertically cut a controlled groove of specified width and depth with special emphasis on the groove base or bed. The base is to be profiled flat or with slight lateral undulations (less than a 10 mil rise variance in the SP profile scale (SP1 – SP10) per the installed marking material requirement. The spacer gap between each stacked blade shall be such that will produce less than a 10 mil rise variance in the finished groove between the blades. The equipment shall be capable of quickly field replacing diamond drum arbors in less than 15 minutes.

The SMITH FS351 eFS351 pitch cut-depthcontrolsquipment includes a twin independent pitch and depth control mechanism along the cutter drum axis to hold uniform depth consistencies for single and multiple inline passes without continual operator adjustment. This allows a repeatable seamless overlap for one or multiple passes to complete the final specified groove width and length. Control mechanisms shall be capable of adjustments as fine as .010″ (10 mils) minimum.

The SMITH FS351 equipment will contain all airborne dust from the shaving or grooving operations in a HEPA filtrated to protect operators and work environment. The removed material can be extracted from the grooved slot with a secondary vacuum hose attached to the equipment. Any remaining materials can be collected with a secondary operation.

WHERE and WHEN: To help you take advantage of shaving time now, SMITH is now offering a special incentive to anyone purchasing the SMITH FS351 Diamond Shaver by end of year. (12/31/2015).  Receive a free SMITH FS200 2HP 110v Deluxe scarifier with flail-it carbide cutter drum assembly with each purchase of $20,000.00 or more.
