The CTS12 provides a direct-impulse force, which supplies ample power to break through the high bond strengths of today's mastics, glues and thin-set materials.

General Equipment Company introduces the CTS12 Rip-R-Stripper™ for floor-covering removal projects. This new machine offers a fresh solution to the old problem of removing ceramic tile, hardwood floor and other tough floor coverings. Even more, it allows rental center operators to make more revenue from the electric-powered breakers in their inventories.

The CTS12 acts as a tool carrier for electric-powered breakers with ratings between 30 and 45 foot-pounds of force. This includes popular models of Hilti®, Bosch®, Makita® and Hitachi® breakers. Unlike the random orbit-type tile stripper machines currently on the market, the CTS12 provides a direct-impulse force, which supplies ample power to break through the high bond strengths of today’s mastics, glues and thin-set materials.

Designed to enhance maneuverability, control and visibility, the CTS12’s unique configuration allows users to operate electric-powered breakers in an upright position, which helps increase productivity while reducing strain on operators’ knees and lower backs. Furthermore, the handle is adjustable to enhance operator comfort, and it is rubber-insulated to reduce vibration. The handle also folds for storage and transportation purposes.

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

General Equipment Company also offers a wide range of industry-standard, 1-1/8-inch-hexagon-by-6-inch shank accessory tools. These include chisels and scraper blades for handling a variety of floor-covering removal applications.

Other equipment in the Rip-R-Stripper line includes the FCS5, FCS10 and FCS16 models for removing carpet, ceramic tile, linoleum and mastics.

In business for more than 50 years, General Equipment Company is a family-owned manufacturer of earth augers, ventilation blowers, asphalt cutters and surface preparation equipment.
