How do I choose a style of floor scraper machine? And what type of blades do I order?

Many options are available when a job requires a floor scraper machine. Each option has advantages. Among those options are the walk-behind floor scraper, the electric floor scraper, the battery-powered floor scraper, and the propane ride-on floor scraper.

There are also many manufacturers to choose from including Blastrac, Terminator, and National. U.S. Shotblast Parts and Service scraper blades fit all these floor scraper machines.

The primary benefit of choosing floor scraper blades from U.S. Shotblast Parts and Service is the high quality of the blades. U.S. Shotblast Parts and Service use steel which has a higher carbon content than most other suppliers. Higher carbon content means the scraper blades wear longer and stay sharper longer. In addition, U.S. Shotblast Parts and Service consistently offers the best price in the industry for our floor scraper blades.

Considering the options for floor scraper machines, and also for tile or carpet blades, and then deciding which choices to make, depends on the job to be done. When choosing a type of floor scraper machine the ride-on floor scraper is best for large areas.

The walk-behind styles can be used on smaller areas that are harder to access with a ride-on style. The walk-behind electric floor scrapers are best used indoors and the power cord is usually lightweight.

The battery-powered floor scrapers are usually used indoors and require time to charge. They usually have a lower run time. The propane ride-on floor scraper usually gives more production and can be used indoors or outside, but indoors requires good ventilation when in use. So, consider the size of the job, the accessibility, and the ventilation when choosing a style.
