Back in college I used to do the floors for a large grocery store. I was spoiled and had a self-propelled walk behind machine that was also a floor scrubber. The one I used was 40 years old and looked like a stainless steel box on wheels, but it was the predecessor to this one. I can't say why, but I might actually get to play with one of these machines soon.
Wow, there is a trip down memory lane -- back in the military we used those to strip & buff the floors. While stripping the floor one guy would sit balanced on the motor while the second guy ran the machine. Then for buffing we sat the machine on a towel & buffed to a very high sheen.
