Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)

The REFRESHER is a propane-powered, planetary driven, complete system for stripping, honing, polishing and burnishing polished concrete and terrazzo floors.

The Refresher is designed for previously polished concrete and terrazzo floors; hone, polish and burnish concrete and terrazzo floors with diamonds and pads. Strip and scrub VCT floors with strip brushes or pads. The Refresher features a gimbaled, synchronous planetary drive, integral water tank and quick change driver heads.

The Aztec Refresher WorkSmartTM System is engineered with the operator in mind. The Refresher is heavy and rugged enough to handle the aggressive demands of honing and polishing concrete floors, yet light and mobile enough to be highly maneuverable and smooth running for hours of continuous use.

The Refresher, with its dust control capability and sealed planetary drive and positive drive synchronous belt, comes with 3 sets of driver heads/brushes: one set of 3 strip brushes for removing old floor finish; one set of 3 Velcro drivers for resin bond, hybrid and ceramic diamonds; and one set of 3 Mighty-Lok drivers for 10” burnishing or diamond pads. Each set of driver heads/brushes is designed with a lug system for “quick-change” mounting and dismounting on the job.

    “Dear Aztec Products, I want to bring to your attention the efforts of Jeff Nicholas, our Aztec Representative. A little over a month ago, Jeff visited us and introduced us to your products. Myself and my sales team were impressed with the equipment but also Jeff’s knowledge in concrete. On April 4th, 2017, Jeff visited one of our customers, Safford Unified School District, to demo concrete polishing. I had early met with the Facilities Director and discussed a way to save money on annual stripping and waxing along with carpet care, would be to simply polish the concrete. Jeff went to work and about 4 hours later, we had a section of concrete in the school’s bus barn looking like glass. The floor actually looked wet. Jeff had continued to assure the Facilities Director the floor would not be slippery, just look that way. When he was done, it wasn’t wet or slippery, but certainly looked that way. I have never sold a piece of equipment without a long drawn out price war. At the end of listening to Jeff and his knowledge and seeing the end result, Philip, the Facilities Director waked up to me and said, ‘get me the numbers so I can take it to the board’. Done deal. What an awesome job Jeff did using your Refresher and the Aztec equipment. I look forward to a long relationship with Jeff and Aztec.”
