Key Characteristics of Hercules Series

Hercules floor preparation machines introduces the innovative DCS System that puts in one machine the features of two different ones. Using the
Hercules in counter rotating mode it can perform as a grinding and polishing machine for concrete, marble and natural stone floors. Using the machine in DCS System mode the speed of the satellites is increased turning the Hercules into a high performance industrial floor preparation machine. Suitable for fast removal of resins and glues, for fast exposing of the aggregates and for fast levelling of very uneven surfaces.

Double Cutting System (DCS System)

For larger scale flooring projects in preparation and removal of epoxies etc. the Hercules line of grinders that we sell is well- suited for that purpose. The main reason is their world exclusive DCS System (Double Cutting System), which allows for the machine to rotate in a Satellite mode (heads fixed in position) to aggressively remove coatings and for fast removal of resins and glues, and then switch to planetary mode (heads spin all together) which allows for the finer finishing and smoothing of the floor.

The design is completely steel gear driven as per all klindex designed machines but with the new DCS (Dual Cutting System) the Hercules machines are two machines in one. They can be used in a satellite mode and can also be used in a planetary mode, making them one of the most versatile machines on the market for both aggressive preparation of the floor (satellite) and fine finishing/polishing (planetary).

Features & Capabilities

Selector to block the door of the inverter

This device avoids the door from being opened before “switching off” the “electric power”. Check if the competitors machine has this device.

Safety device to monitor emergency circuit

This device automatically shuts off the machine if some electric problem happens avoiding any injuries. Expander uses the right and approved electrical components including oversized wire.

Remote Control

If the operator leaves the Remote control, the machine will stop working and it rejects use from any other person. All automatic movements are under control by “dead man safety device”.

Special safety emergency button

When this special emergency button is pushed the motor is immediately turned off and all the “moving parts” are immediately shuts down, avoiding any injuries to the operator.

Re-start safety system

The re-start after any stop cannot happen casually. If any one accidentally connects the power, the machine doesn’t start again. The operator has to follow all instructions correctly.

Working Section

Working section 450mm to 1000mm with 3 tools diameter 200-240mm. Many machine has the same working area but the tools are smaller. Smaller the tools, lesser the performance.

Variable speed head that adjusts

Variable speed adjustable head allows the operator to adjust the working speed at any given moment depends on the floor type or condition ranging from 300 rpm to 1300 rpm.

Third wheel

Third front wheel makes the machine easy to transportation and handle. It allows to regulate the working pressure and inclination on the planetary head which is useful when working on uneven floors.

Planetary Head

Planetary head is 100% tempered metal and gear driven. The main disc and the satellites always run, allowing the machine to work aggressively with high performance to cut faster and deeper.

Water tank with 46L capacity

The tank is very important for working wet. When working dry the diamond doesn’t grip and skates on the surface of the floor. Many competitor machines does not have this option.

Steel Priority

Steel frame painted with metallic varnish. Aluminium carter covering the Planetary. The metal covering protects the diamond tools and allows it to work very close to the wall.

Inverter with Display for fast diagnostics

The digital display allows the operator to diagnose what is happening with the machine without opening the Inverter door where most of the competitor machines doesn’t have this option.

Adjustable working head pressure

The expander series owns a new technology for better grinding. The pressure is adjusted by an “Electronic device”, where in many competitor machines the manual weights have to be added.

Handle

Adjustable position of the handle for a comfortable working position. It also can be reversed to allow the operator to drive the machine from in front and not only from the rear.

Effective weight distribution

The motor placed directly over the top of the planetario with three well balanced heads for perfect balance and highest grinding pressure available (this balance allows it to work on any surface).

Rigid Head

The planetario doesn’t focus weight and pressure of the heads on the chassis to create a ‘floating head’ which makes the floor wavy. It uses a rigid system to ensuring flattest possible floor.

No Belts, only steel gears

Gears mean lower operating costs than competitors (belt changes are very expensive). Belts do not transfer torque as effectively as gears (less grinding pressure available).

Dust control optimized

Expanders own vacuum ports for working dry and Free of Dust.

Splash guard

Expanders comes with a strong perimetral neoprene splash guard for wet use.

Easy maintenance

The machines are very easy to maintain. Simply clean and grease it after every job.
