Situp Grinder Attachment kit
When fitted to a 230mm angle grinder this Situp Grinder attachment will grind floors, remove epoxy, glue and level slabs with much less effort compared to grinding on hands and knees. Injuries cost money and time neither of which a contractor can afford and this concrete grinder will remove a major injury risk which is kneeling to grind floors.
In many instances the Situp Grinder will be faster than a single phase planetary or upright grinder because the angle grinder universal motors have much more torque, spin much faster and all the power is concentrated on a small 178mm wheel. Now with the ergonomics of a Situp Grinder attachment to match the power it can be used effectively as a concrete grinder on many larger jobs where you would otherwise not use a hand grinder.

For edging work is it smoother, faster and easier than working on your knees and for hard floors it will grind all the low spots missed by larger concrete grinders as shown in the plant room product image above.
This Situp Grinder is light to carry upstairs, to and from the job, and is compact enough to be used in small rooms and cubicles. It can also be carried in the boot of a car with a small vacuum dust collector which will enable workers to complete edging and small areas before the larger floor grinders are used keeping the bigger equipment on more profitable work.

The weights make all the difference for most jobs taking the effort out of hand grinding and particularly for hard floors it will enable grinding smoothly and rapidly. For edging work the weights put most of the force on the front of the wheel so that the rear of the grinding wheel feathers in the grinding to the rest of the floor. We recommend you purchase two 5kg flat weights with a standard 30mm hole centre and one 2.5kg weight from sporting goods suppliers.
The Situp Grinder kit mounting bracket has slotted holes so it is adjustable to fit all of the following grinders – Bosch, Metabo, Makita, Hitachi, DeWalt and Milwaukee. The dust shroud has precision molded inserts to fit the above grinders too.
What you get in the attachment kit
The Situp Grinder attachment kit comprises the handles, trigger mechanism, mounting bolts, a 12 segment turbo grinding wheel and 178mm dust shroud.
It is easy to assemble and very robust in construction, inexpensive, will save you hours on jobs compared to other methods as well as take all your body weight off your knees while working. The biggest saving apart from the high cost of injury is reduced physical effort.
Not supplied is the angle grinder, weights which are available at sporting goods stores, and the chair which is any type of standard office chair with a five-castor base.
