The Centaur Woodpecker Perfect for Wooden Gymnasium or Dance Hall Floors

(and there’s no air-borne dust when using. Your lungs will thank you for that!)

The Woodpecker is for you if you need to sand floors without causing any dust (coz’ the Woodpecker takes care of the dust before it gets airborne).

If you have to sand wooden gymnasium floors, or dance hall floors and the like, you’re going to be amazed at the quality and speed of sanding the Woodpecker does, over any other machine you’ve been used to operating.

Finally, a serious sanding machine that “glides” across the floor and one you know is not coating the inside of your lungs with dust.

Leading Institutions That Select Centaur Machines

Versatile and a Time Saver

“I’ve been using Centaur floor machines for 15 years with great success. Attachments like the water tank and the 40lb weight makes the machine’s versatility quite impressive. The baseboard attachment (Scrub Jay) is phenomenal. As you know wax and liquids get splashed on the baseboards throughout the year and it is very time consuming to remove them by hand, but with this attachment, all that is required is to apply baseboard cleaner and go.”

—Dustin Chang, FCH Maintenance
