Why are WerkMaster machines so effective as a Hardwood Floor Sander?
Hardwood floors have enjoyed many years of popularity for both aesthetic and durability reasons. At some point hardwood floors require refinishing. A WerkMaster Hardwood Floor Sander is especially suited to this application because it is designed to plane. Belt and drum sanders can cause divots, stall marks and chatter marks and are difficult to operate. Edgers can be a nightmare to run. Stained floors require a tremendous amount of blending with a buffer, which can be dusty and labor intensive.
WerkMaster Hardwood Floor Sanders are fast and agile, and will remove overwood, coatings, carpet glue, paint, tung oil, staples, paint and just about any coating on a wood floor. We pioneered the design and the use of diamond abrasive tools for refinishing hardwood floors. In a residential, commercial or retail environment, WerkMaster Floor Sanders are fast earning the reputation of being the most user friendly machine available today.
WerkMaster introduces a SandPaperLess solution for removing aluminum oxide from engineered hardwood floors. Finally a simple, cost effective solution for safely removing aluminum oxide from any engineered floor.

Aluminium oxide factory finished engineered floors are popular today and often need refinishing. The problem is the amount of wood to work with is limited. Engineered wood flooring is built-up of layers of wood, glued together. This multi-ply structure gives engineered wood superior stability, greater than solid wood, which reduces concerns associated with shrinking and expanding when temperature and humidity change.
However, because of the unique composition of engineered flooring, caution must be used in any attempt to refinish them. A belt sander can damage an engineered floor in a heartbeat, or remove too much wood, shortening the life of the floor. Not a worry with a WerkMaster, because our system removes the finish quickly without damaging or removing too much wood.
WerkMaster gets to within 1/8”(3mm) of the wall eliminating the need for an edger. It delivers a premium finish, can complete a floor in as little as two steps, runs in any direction on parquet floors, reduces time and labor, and does it all dust free. Fast, agile, easy and fun to operate, test drive a WerkMaster™ and see how quickly you too can improve your bottom line profits.
WerkMaster™ delivers superior results that most competitors only dream of achieving. Tradesmen are amazed and delighted with the ease of use and total customer satisfaction achieved with a WerkMaster™.
What makes a WerkMaster Floor Finishing System Unique?
WerkMaster™ floor refinishing machines were initially manufactured to polish Absolute Black granite, one of the hardest stones to polish. However, realizing need for a new, easier way to refinish hardwood, we began looking at ways to incorporate our technology into this field. The result is our Patented eight head Octi-Disc™ Technology with the ULTRA-Flex Plug ‘N Go Tooling System for hardwood floors. Our machines sand, strip, screen, buff, and edge to within 1/8″ (3 mm) of the wall or cabinet kick. The advantage of a WerkMaster is that one machine can outperform the competition’s technology on any wood surface – floors, ledges, countertops, stairs and risers.
WerkMaster™ Patented Octi-Disc™ Technology
What makes WerkMaster™ so unique? Octi-Disc™ Technology and SPEED. Our 8 counter rotating, self balancing heads and Variable Frequency Drive allows the operator to adjust the speed of the machine to adapt to the type of floor being finished. Additionally, all our machines to get to within 1/8″ (3mm) of the wall, except the Scarab, it gets right to the wall!
ULTRA-FLEX Plug ‘N Go Tooling System
Our patented ULTRA-FLEX Plug ‘N Go Tooling System is a major advancement in tooling design. The challenge was to develop a system that would allow the machine to either flatten or plane a floor, and be able to adjust to a curled or cupped floor by configuring the system to Rigid, Medium or Ultra-Flex mode.
The Werkmaster Guide to different types of Hardwood Flooring
Wood flooring is any product manufactured from timber that is designed for use as flooring, either structural or aesthetic. Wood is a common choice as a flooring material due to its environmental profile, durability, and restorability.
Types of Wood Flooring
Solid wood flooring is 100% hardwood milled from lumber. As a natural material, hardwood reacts to changes in its setting, like moisture and extreme temperatures, which cause solid wood to shrink or expand. All solid hardwood can be sanded and refinished if needed. Solid hardwood is not recommended for installation below ground level or in bathrooms.
Engineered wood flooring is built-up of layers of wood. It consists of three to ten layers, called plies, that are glued together. This multi-ply structure gives engineered wood superior stability, greater than solid wood, which reduces concerns associated with shrinking and expanding when temperature and humidity change. Engineered wood can be installed below ground level making it a great choice for finished basements.
