How The Rabbit-3 Helps You Get More Jobs Done With Just ONE Machine

Two Speed, Multi-Purpose, 5 in ONE Daily Floor Maintainer System


Cut Down Stripping Time by Up to 50%

Add one 40lb weight to the Rabbit-3 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.


Prevent the Mess from Spraying on Walls, Baseboards Etc.

The integrated SplashGuard on the Rabbit-3 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.


Clean Baseboards in 90%-96% LESS TIME

Easily convert the Rabbit-3 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.


Clean More Areas With The Rabbit-3 (including tight areas like washrooms)

Detach the Integrated SplashGuard on the Rabbit-3 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.


Take The Rabbit-3 Anywhere You Go

Simply detach the handle from the Rabbit-3 machine base (which can be easily done in a matter of seconds) and you can now fit the Rabbit-3 in any car and get to your next job.

No need for a truck or 2 people to get the Rabbit-3 to a job or to carry it up a flight of stairs.


The Rabbit-3 Does the Job of 5 Machines

The Rabbit-3 replaces the job of 5 machines saving you upfront costs, storage, ongoing repairs and maintenance costs associated with having more equipment.

PLUS the Rabbit-3 will last you 30+ years compared to the lifespan of other machines.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of floor surfaces can I work on using the Rabbit-3?

The Rabbit-3 is a multi-purpose daily floor maintainer that is designed to work on any hard surface flooring.

The Rabbit-3 is ideal for polishing floors, stripping wax of floors, diamond polishing, scrubbing floors, high-speed buffing as well as light stone grinding.

With the Scrub Jay baseboard attachment, you can also use the Rabbit-3 to deep clean and strip wax off baseboards.

What’s the benefit of having 2-speeds on the Rabbit-3?

Most floor maintenance jobs will be performed at the lower 200 rpm. This will be your primary speed for light diamond grinding/polishing, baseboard cleaning, wax stripping and floor scrubbing.

The higher 300 rpm allows you to use the Rabbit-3 for high-speed buffing and polishing replacing the need to invest in a separate buffing machine.

How does the SplashGuard work?

Lowering the SplashGuard to the floor will encapsulate the drive head and contains the spray caused by the rotating machine. This will prevent wax and stripping chemicals from being sprayed/splattered on walls, baseboards and other nearby objects. This helps to significantly reduce your cleaning time. You won’t have to “tape/mask off” all the baseboards and nearby surfaces before you start working, or clean all the surfaces after you use the Rabbit-3 for stripping floors. The SplashGuard is chemical resistant and non-marking. Centaur also makes a 13″ SplashGuard.

How does downsizing the Rabbit-3 help me?

The Rabbit-3 utilizes 18″ drive plates that allow you to work on large areas quickly and effectively.

However the 18″ cleaning path isn’t ideal or even practical when you get to tighter areas – such as working in small closets, bathroom stalls, and smaller office spaces?

By removing the SplashGuard, the Rabbit-3 will downsize to just 13″, allowing you to work in these smaller areas without you needing a separate smaller machine to work with.

What does it mean when the red light appears on top of the motor?

This light indicates that the carbon brushes in the motor need to be changed.

Think of it like an oil change indicator in your vehicle. Give Centaur a call or contact your local distributor to order a set of four replacement carbon brushes and you’ll be good to go for another 10 years.

How much does the Rabbit-3 weigh?

The Rabbit-3 weighs in at just 76 lbs or 34.5 kg without the detachable power cable.

What size floor pads can I use on the Rabbit-3?

With the SplashGuard on the machine, The Rabbit-3 is designed for using 18″ floor pads. When you remove the SplashGuard and downsize the machine, you can use a 13″ pad/block for those hard to reach areas.

When do I need an onboard water tank?

Most floor cleaning & restoration jobs are done using water.

Having a 4-gallon deluxe water tank on the Rabbit-3 takes away the extra work of having to carry and work with buckets. The convenient actuator handle on the water tank allows you to easily control waterflow at your fingertips.

This increases your productivity and reduces fatigue during a job.

The water tank is also a requirement for baseboard cleaning.

Leading Institutions That Select Centaur Floor 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
