Concrete Grinding/shot-blasting Vacuum Recommendations

Im looking to upgrade my floor prep setup. Currently I am grinding with an OnFloor 16 w/Dimabrushes and a Dustless Technologies Hepa Vac.

For what it is it works decently for garages and areas under 2000 sq ft. Anything larger usually gets subbed out to a floor prep company.

I am currently in discussions with a clean room company about installing all of their epoxy floors. I am looking to upgrade to a shot-blaster ( 8" - 9" ) along with a better vac system. Before I shell out a few grand for a vacuum I figured I would get some reviews.

Any floor prep guys on here?

Look up " polishing contractor" magazine. It is a free-bee we get with concrete contractor. They have a ton of floor prep products. I would get you more info but I can't find a copy right now.

I think Hilti was coming out with a new set-up as well. Good luck
