THE RABBIT-1

  • Cuts Down Stripping Time By Half
  • Downsizes to Clean Smaller Areas
  • Also Cleans & Strips Baseboards

How The Rabbit-1 Helps You Finish Jobs in Less Time

Single Speed, Multi-Purpose, 3 in ONE Daily Floor Maintainer System

1

Cut Down Stripping Time by Up to 50%

Add one 40lb weight to the Rabbit-1 and cut down your stripping time by 25%.

Add a second 40lb weight and you are now able to strip floors in HALF the time it would otherwise take you.

2

Prevent the Mess from Spraying on Walls, Baseboards Etc.

The integrated SplashGuard on the Rabbit-1 keeps the "mess" under the machine as you’re stripping floors. This prevents nearby walls, baseboards, planters, pillars etc. from getting splattered with the dirty mess from the stripping process.

This saves you hours of clean-up after a job.

3

Clean Baseboards in 90%-96% LESS TIME

Easily convert the Rabbit-1 into a Baseboard Cleaning machine by adding the Scrub Jay attachment and the deluxe water tank.

What would've been a 5-Hour baseboard stripping job for a working crew, can now be done in less than 30 minutes by just 1 person.

4

Clean More Areas With The Rabbit-1 (including tight areas like washrooms)

Detach the Integrated SplashGuard on the Rabbit-1 in seconds and you now have a 13" downsized machine ready to get the job done in tighter spaces.

There's no need to bring in another "smaller" machine to get the job done.

5

Take The Rabbit-1 Anywhere You Go

Simply detach the handle from the Rabbit-1 machine base (which can be easily done in a matter of seconds) and you can now fit the Rabbit-1 in any car and get to your next job.

No need for a truck or 2 people to get the Rabbit-1 to a job or to carry it up a flight of stairs.

6

The Rabbit-1 Does the Job of 3 Machines

The Rabbit-1 replaces the job of 3 machines saving you upfront costs, storage, ongoing repairs and maintenance costs associated with having more equipment.

PLUS the Rabbit-1 will last you 30+ years compared to the lifespan of other machines.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does the Rabbit-1 weigh?

The Rabbit-1 weighs 93 lbs or 42.2 kg with the handle and electric power cable.

When you detach the handle, the Rabbit-1 base weighs just 79 lbs or 36 kg and the separated handle & power cable weighs 15 lbs or 7 kg.

Which machine is better for cleaning baseboards? The Rabbit-1 or Rabbit-3?

Both the Rabbit-1 and Rabbit-3 floor machines are designed for baseboard cleaning (with the Flex Hose, Water Tank and the Scrub Jay attachment)

The choice of a Rabbit-1 or a Rabbit-3 machine really comes down to what else you need your machine to do. If you’re ONLY looking for a baseboard cleaning machine, the Rabbit-1 is an excellent choice.

How do I downsize the Rabbit-1?

The Rabbit-1 has a removable SplashGuard.

When you remove the SplashGuard you can now attach a 13″ drive pad, or 13″ brush and use the machine to get into those hard to reach areas that need a “smaller” cleaning path.

What size drive block can I use on the Rabbit-1?

The Rabbit-1 comes standard with an 18″ drive block. When you downsize the machine, you can attach the 13″ drive block.

How quiet is the Rabbit-1?

The Rabbit-1 sports an AC motor which is completely enclosed. This reduces the sound level of the machine to just 60 dBA, making it the ideal machine to work in environments such as hotel lobbies, hall ways of apartment buildings, and other busy environments where equipment noise needs to be kept at a minimum.

How much additional weight can I put on a Rabbit-1?

The Rabbit-1 is designed to accommodate an additional 80 lbs of weight (two 40 lb horseshoe weights, part #2F03072). This allows you to grind and strip floors in up to half the time.

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
