scarifier drumScarifiers, also known as surface planers or milling machines, cut or scar the surface of concrete with the use of cutting tools that rotate around a drum.

Scarifiers remove concrete faster and more aggressively than grinders due to the pummeling action of the cutting wheels that rotate at very high speeds. The cutters chip away at the concrete leaving rough surface profiles for various purposes. Cutting depths are adjustable on most machines, with some models achieving up to 1/4 inch of material removal in just one pass.

The cutting wheels or flails are mounted on shafts on a removable drum. The number of cutter shafts per drum varies by model, but generally machines with more shafts can hold more cutters per loading for increased scarifying action and faster production rates.
