Vikings and rogues visit CON EXPO
To provide contractors with the best tools for effective concrete preparation, surface preparation expert National Flooring Equipment will exhibit at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas, USA from March 14 to 18 2023. On booth D2926, visitors will have the opportunity to test drive a range of National Flooring Equipment’s heavyweight floor scrapers, including the newest and most powerful machines — the Viking and Rogue.
Powered by a 49.5 HP turbo diesel Kubota engine, the Viking is a 2,586 kg ride-in scraper designed for heavy duty outdoor work on roadways, bridge decks, airport runways and more. Windshield wipers, headlights and a light curtain enable contractors to work safely in different weather conditions or during overnight roadworks. The cab also includes a range of features to improve operator comfort and safety, including cab air filtration and noise cancelling properties, as well as a cup holder, USB charger and spring-loaded seat.
National Flooring Equipment’s stand will feature a range of its most popular ride on scrapers designed for large scale, outdoor applications. For smaller projects, National Flooring Equipment will also exhibit its latest walk-behind scraper, The Rogue — a fully electric, modular machine that features an adjustable blade and precision steering for enhanced manoeuvrability.
“The biggest names in construction head to Con Expo to demonstrate how contractors benefit from their equipment, and we’re excited to do the same,” explained Connie Hardy, vice president of marketing at National Flooring Equipment. “We often find that contractors aren’t fully aware of the importance of proper surface preparation, so by attending Con Expo we plan to raise awareness and equip contractors with the tools needed to remove floor coverings and prepare concrete. We also hope to get feedback from contractors trying equipment on the booth, because it helps us ensure our products remain at the cutting edge of surface preparation technology.
National Flooring Equipment’s experts will be at Diamond Lot D2926, demonstrating its equipment for every stage of floor preparation, answering questions and providing specialist advice on maximising machine performance.
