Mercury 1170 rpm High-Speed Buffer / Polisher


Mercury 1170 rpm High-Speed Buffer / Polisher / Burnisher

The Mercury 1170 will produce a quick shine!

Balanced For Even Amperage Draw

To cut down on blowing circuit breakers, 2000 rpm electric buffers have an idler wheel on the front that restricts pad contact. 1500 rpm buffers are typically angled to reduce pad contact on the floor – yet they continually pop breakers. By comparison, the Mercury 1170 can buff all day making full pad contact and it won't overload a circuit. 

1170 RPM | Ideal For All High-Speed Floor Care Applications

Using the Mercury 1170  along with a quality Spray-Buff solution creates a quick shine on coated VCT floors! Can be used to polish terrazzo and marble floors, using DiamondPlus pads. Can be used for a final buff after tile and grout cleaning, to remove any residue from the floor. And it can be used for buffing wood floors too. 

1.5 hp D/C Rectified Motor

Equipped with an industrial 1.5 hp motor. D/C Rectified motor eliminates circuit burn-outs and startup torque problems.

19" Polished Aluminum Long-Deck

No plastic here! The1170 deck is solid cast aluminum for years of dependable use. The deck is polished to a brilliant luster. And the long-deck design provides a stable platform for balanced and efficient buffing.

Belt Driven

Smooth and consistent buffing is achieved with a belt-driven system.
