Carpet Concepts LLC., designed the Carpet Badger with the everyday installer in mind. Our engineers teamed up with a group of installers to design a machine to fullfill their needs. The installers all agreed that several factors were lacking. The main factors were: Portability, efficiency, weight and size, and maintenance. Portability: Unlike other machines in the industry, the Carpet Badger is easy to load and transport. Weight and size: Other carpet puller machines are big, cumbersome and weigh a ton. The Carpet Badger weighs about the same as a bucket of glue (65 lbs) and is only 16" x 28". This makes it much easier to load on a truck, wheel through doorways, and carry up a flight of stairs. Efficiency: The Carpet Badger pulls twice as fast then any other carpet puller on the market. (33ft/min minimum) Most installers agreed that other machines did the job intended, but were too slow. Installers are very pleased with the speed compared to other machines. Maintenance: This was a big factor for us! Installers are tired of paying for expensive replacement parts. The Carpet Badger uses ordinary tack strip for the gripping teeth on the pull plate and base plates. Other machines use expensive aftermarket pulling teeth that can break or become damaged. The low cost of tack strip eliminates EVER having to buy expensive teeth or pins again. It also makes on job site repairs possible, so you can keep working and not lose any time or money. That, along with the restrictor plate, ensures the carpet will hold, and not just grab. Teeth are easy to replace with supplies you already have.
"I was skeptical at first. I had a big tear out job and wasn't looking forward to it. Man was the glue TOUGH! I told my local supply house about it and they recommended the Carpet Badger. I couldn't wrap my head around how this thing could work for me. BOY was I wrong! This thing is awesome. It was fast and rugged. I smoked through 300 yards of tough commercial glue down like nobodys business. The funny thing is, I can't even imagine doing another tough glue down job without this. I'll never fight a strip of carpet again. Yeah Buddy! Thanks!"
"Wow, what a great machine. I no longer dread the "crazy tough" glue down tear outs.
"I've had the Carpet Badger for a year and have pulled over 7000 yards of carpet with no problems. I love this machine. If you pull carpet, you need this machine."
