Removes the worst of today's hard & soft goods!

The Gladiator removes the worst of today’s hard and soft goods, such as ceramic tile, wood floors, thin-set, sheet vinyl, linoleum, and more. Its compact design makes it ideal for use in confined spaces, while the side slide weights add extra head pressure when forward and improved traction when moved over the back wheels.

Heavy Duty Hydraulic Gladiator

The heavier and more powerful big brother of the 6280 Commander, this heavy duty, hydraulically driven forward and reverse self-propelled walk behind scraper is designed to efficiently remove both soft and hard goods. The features of this machine reduce operator fatigue while optimizing time and labor savings to complete jobs swiftly and economically. It is ideal for use in confined spaces such as bathrooms, freezers and electrical utility rooms.

 Additional Features

  • The 6280HD Gladiator is designed for both the fast and efficient removal of soft goods (carpet, glues, mastic, VCT, VAT and most industry adhesives) as well as tough industrial removal of hard goods (most ceramics, various hardwoods, motor mixes and mud baths). It’s patented hydraulic drive operates in both forward and reverse positions providing industry leading operator comfort, ease of use and increased production.  Adding to its overall functionality is the ability to quickly adjust head torque by utilizing the easy access variable speed control.

  • The standard swivel head attachment in conjunction with the accelerated RPM oscillating cutting head insures efficient removal through the most difficult material. The swivel head attachment provides 100% consistent surface contact regardless of the demolition material and promotes blade longevity.

  • The 360 degree ergonomically designed hand grips insure operator comfort regardless of handle position.   Simply apply light pressure to move forward and pull back for reverse. The more pressure you apply the faster you go!

  • The 6280HD Gladiator incorporates a six position adjustable handle that enables the operator to work under counters, in utility rooms and other confined areas.  The adjustable handle can be collapsed toward the front of the scraper to save space when transporting from one job site to the next.

  • Self-cleaning industrial-grade traction wheels disengage for loading and unloading.

  • Operates at a low decibel rating for occupied spaces such as hospitals, schools, offices and government facilities.78 pounds of front weight down pressure works in tandem with the adjustable, counter-balanced, slide-weight system. These apply additional pressure to the scraper head as desired. However, if the job calls for added traction, slide the side weights back to apply more weight over the travel wheels.

  • Industrial motor equipped with a thermal-overload protection circuit breaker cord to eliminate unnecessary strain and motor over-excursion.

Prefloor Distributors recommends adding these accessories to your order, so you can stay in the work longer.
