  • Once the bolts are removed, remove the side panel to expose the cage.
  • Remove the cage by sliding it off the shaft.
  • To install a new cage, simply slide the new tooling cage onto the shaft.
  • Reinstall the side panel and install the bolts and tighten securely.

  • To move the handle into the desired position, loosen the black knob located at the base of the handle.
  • Once loosened, you can then move the handle into your desired position then retighten the knob. 

*Pre Start-Up: Before starting the unit it's important to ensure that the cage is fully clear of the floor surface. -Use the fine adjustment wheel to lift the cage clear of the surface.

  • To lift the cage, rotate the fine adjustment wheel counterclockwise.
  • Once the cage is lifted fully, pull back on the quick lift handle.

  • To beginning scarifying, lower the quick lift handle.
  • Slowly rotate the fine adjustment wheel clockwise, until the cutters engage with the surface and your desired depth is reached.

Proper Scarifying Technique (02:30-03:20)

  • When scarifying, it's important to avoid burying the tooling and cage into the concrete.
  • To operate the unit correctly, it's critical to allow the tooling enough space for the tooling remain loose on the shaft, so it can freely flail at the concrete surface.
  • If the drum is lowered too far, the cutters will be pinned between the drum and the surface. This prevents the proper operation of your tooling, and increases the potential for damage to your unit.
  • To control the dust caused through operation of the unit, connect your dust extractor hose to the dust port located at the base of the machine.
