Electric Groover Comparison and Evolution
We are all certainly grateful for the advancements the electric groover has brought us as installers but it was only the beginning. After years of research and development - push groovers such as the Master Turbo Groover and the Marmo Groovers have picked up where the electric groover left off in terms of design. How have they done this?
Ease of use
With great power comes a need for great precision. While the electric groover forces you to be extra careful to prevent a disaster on the job. Turbo's Master Turbo Groover and Marmo Groovers are far more forgiving and easier to use. As seen in the video, lay the tool flat on the ground, adjust the blade to the depth you need, and simply push. As long as the tool is flat, you can groove as fast as you can crawl. No worries about going too fast or jumping off the seam or going too slow. Go at your speed and the tool will do the rest and groove at the best angel every time.
Shapes and designsThe electric groover can only groove in straight lines. This forces the installer to use a hand groover whenever they're tasked with shapes or designs in a project. But why invest so much money in a groover if you can't use it for such a crucial task? Turbo Groovers can groove shapes, serpentine, designs, etc. with ease. The video above has a couple of examples.
No electricityNo electricity means no long electrical cord taking up space while you're working. You don't have to worry about where to plug the groover in or whether there's a power source near you. It also means that you're not using an overwhelming amount of power towards grooving. Turbo strongly believes that using that much power to cut a seam is unnecessary when the groover is designed properly.
Light weightYou can see the difference in the video. The Master Turbo Groover easily fits in any tool box and you can carry it around in your tool pouch for ease of use. Hard to say the same for the Electric Groover.
Wall to wallThe ability to groove wall to wall without any extra tools is a huge difference. The electric groover forces you to finish the grooves near walls with a hand groover. The Turbo Groovers can groove from wall to wall with absolutely no problems. It's specifically built to avoid having to use another tool to finish the grooving process.
WarrantyFinally, all of the Turbo tools have a Lifetime Warranty which insures that you won't have to make yearly investments on the same tool. This is the only warranty of its kind in the industry.
