National Flooring Equipment, Inc., which is headquartered in Minneapolis, USA, is dedicated to perfecting surface preparation around the world. For over 50 years now, the company’s grinders, scrapers, dust collectors, and strippers have been helping to quite literally smooth the way for unforgiving floor coverings. Even after more than half a century, development work continues to forge ahead, as the unveiling of the new 4230 EUR floor stripper at DOMOTEX 2019 in Hannover shows.

Alongside the other models in the range that National Flooring is exhibiting in Hannover, the new 4230 EUR may look a bit undersized - after all, it is the smallest and most lightweight stripper in its class. But there's good reason for that, as Dave Bigham, director of global training initiatives at National Flooring Equipment, is well aware. He explains that the 4230 EUR has been specially designed for the European market, which typically has smaller job sites and more restrictions. The compact 4230 EUR is available with either manual blade adjustment or a dual lift feature. Being electric, rather than propane-powered, it doesn’t produce any harmful emissions, and because it doesn't rely on a battery, there's no limit on its runtime.
