General Equipment FCS10 Rip-R-Stripper
June 29, 2009

General Equipment Co.’s FCS10 Rip-R-Stripper floor-covering strippers is an electric-powered model that provides a compact, lightweight alternative to larger walk-behind units. It accommodates cutting blades up to 10 inches wide and offers high performance, an ergonomic design and multiple accessories. Ideal applications include removing carpet, VCT, linoleum and mastics. Featuring an operational weight of only 40 pounds (18 kg), the FCS10 allows the operator to transport the unit and traverse stairs much more easily than with larger units, which can weigh more than 100 pounds. The small size also provides superior maneuverability in confined areas. Constructed of a high-tech, composite tube, the machine’s lightweight handle offers better weight and vibration reduction than steel or aluminum.
