Floor Burnisher, Buffer, Polisher

When it comes to hard surface floor maintenance, perhaps no machine has had more of an impact in the past 20 years than the LPG / Propane powered floor burnisher.

Why? Because LPG / Propane burnishers do the job faster and better than conventional floor buffers and polishers

They have been in production for more than 25 years now, and over time they have improved considerably. Early prototypes were loud and produced excessive levels emissions. Today, manufacturers build equipment that is superior in many respects. Newer models are equiped with higher horsepower engines, running at higher rpms and at lower noise levels. Better muffler designs have reduced noise levels further.

They are available in different sizes depending on engine and floor pad size. Sizes range from 11 to 20 horsepower. Unlike electric buffers, LPG / Propane burnishers, buffers and polishers are not limited in range by the length of a cord. In addition they have greater torque, pad speed and pad pressure than their battery-powered equivalent and they do not have batteries needing recharging.

Bigger is better when it comes to maintaining large, open floor space and those units generally come in floor pad sizes from 21 to 28 inches. The larger the floor pad, the greater the floor area that can be buffed in a shorter amount of time. Some burnishers can reportedly buff 45,000 square feet per hour. The time saved by using a larger burnisher increases productivity and saves labor time.

Safety features on these units can include emission controllers that shut of the engine if higher levels of emissions are detected in the surrounding. Monitors on some burnishers also check for dirty filters, and they can tell the operator when the machine is in need of a tune-up. With indoor air quality becoming an issue more and more, reducing dust has become a priority. Use a burnisher equipped with active vacuum systems to capture many of the particulates thrown out at pad level that otherwise become airborne.


  • Emissions protected by 3-way catalytic muffler
  • Low profile designs for improved maneuverability
  • Centered body designs
  • Safety regulator fuel systems
  • Exhaust Emission Control Systems
  • Active vacuum systems to capture particulates thrown out at pad level in some units


  • High power, high revs operation resulting to time savings
  • Extended run times with approx 5 to 6 hours per propane cylinder
  • Independent of power supply availability
  • Unlimited continuous operation simply by exchanging the LPG / propane cylinder (no need for battery charging)
  • Ultra low emissions with highly modern engines
  • Very low noise operation
