Combining speed and power with a longer lasting battery charge, you get arguably the fastest, most efficient and cost-effective battery operated floor removal machine on the market today.

So what makes the Hybrid so special?


  • The Hybrid Optimum Bronco’s overall length is only 56 inches which makes it easy to maneuver and fit in an elevator. Many of the competitor’s machines are longer making them difficult to fit in an elevator.

  • Travel speed is over 225 ft. per minute significantly outpacing most machines on the market

  • Burly and powerful motor: 11.3 hp continuous and 22.6 hp peak. 

  • The Hybrid Optimum Bronco weighs only 2,100 lbs, lighter than most battery powered machines on the market today

  • Warranty is 1 year parts/labor and 2 year on batteries (no labor after 1 year on batteries).

  • Has a 420 amp hour battery pack, This allows the Bronco to run faster and operate more efficiently than most other machines on the market. While some machines may advertise that they have a longer run time, this gain is often offset by lower speed and productivity. You have to be on the machine longer to get the same amount of work done!

  • The Bronco Hybrid has a proprietary battery balancing system that, when charging, diverts power evenly to all four battery banks and, if necessary, gives a bank more charge power to bring it even with the other banks.  This is very important for prolonging battery life.

  • The Optimum can charge while operating.  This “hybrid” feature reduces the battery consumption by up to 50% to extend the battery run time on the job.

  • The Optimum’s Low Battery Alarm System will sound an alarm when the battery pack drops below the safe level.  After two minutes, if the pack is not charged, the system will actually turn off the machine to prevent damage from excessive discharge.  This can be overridden by turning the key on and off to get to an area to plug in for charging.

  • With the Optimum’s patented Power Glide suspension system, the frame is articulated rather than wiggling the blade to keep the blade flat to the floor.  This is much more efficient and makes for a faster, smoother ride when removing flooring.


  • Competitive strippers use gear pumps for their hydraulics. The Bronco uses hydrostatic pumps for its hydraulics.


Gear pumps run at full power all the time.  That means a pump that produces 9 gallons/min. at 3000 psi when running is always delivering 9 gallons/min. at 3000 psi. 

The Broncos hydrostatic pumps use only the oil flow and pressure that is required to do the work.


To reduce speed, you must shear the oil flow (divert the unused oil back to the reservoir).  This is done with servos/proportion valves.  In order to get reasonable operating power and control, the speed must be slowed down.

The Bronco’s hydraulic circuit is a closed loop circuit which means that the only oil that is returned to the oil reservoir is the blow-by from the pistons. There are no servos or proportion valves in the Bronco’s system.  The pumps are operated mechanically.


The diverted oil contains wasted energy in the form of heat which must be evacuated and which raises the ambient temperature of the work environment. 

Hydrostatic pumps run at much lower pressures which is a better use of energy and safer to operate. And the Bronco’s hydrostatic pumps have a positive auto-neutral return system that immediately returns the controls to neutral when released.  The neutral return is quick and accurate with no coasting. The machine comes to a quick, positive stop every time.


Gear pump driven equipment operates in a herky-jerky fashion.  When trying to move with precision, there is no initial response on the controls, and then suddenly the machine lurches forward.  This erratic cadence puts walls and molding at risk. 

The Bronco’s controls in tight areas is very precise.  The controls are responsive even when moving inch by inch such as when boarding an elevator.

It just wasn't enough being the fastest, most maneuverable, ride-on floor stripper on the market. Taylor Tools has made several changes to this latest generation of the propane powered ride-on stripper making it more durable and easier to maintain than ever before.  


  • External Oil Check and Dipstick Access Port: The dip stick has been conveniently relocated to allow the operator to easily check the oil level and top off if necessary.  

  • Externally Mounted Air Filter: The air filter, which ensures optimum motor performance, has also been externally relocated. Now you can access and change the filter without even opening the machine.  

  • Easily Accessible Battery and Jump Contacts: The battery has been relocated to the top of the oil tank and now includes a set of quick contacts in case you need to charge or jump start the Bronco. This feature is particularly useful if the machine has been stored for a long period of time.

The Propane Bronco from Taylor Tools includes the  Hydraulically Controlled Blade Holder.
With the 260P HL, there is no bleed-down while you’re on the job or even overnight. The blade stays where you put it.

Strip up to 15,000 sq. ft. per day.

260P.45.00 Dust Shroud.png

Designed for use on the the Bronco 2-transportation wheel Propane Ride-on Floor Stripper, this new product helps to reduce airborne dust when used in conjunction with commercial-grade, high-CFM HEPA filter vacuums (such as the Taylor EDC.290 or EDC.400). 


The dust shroud nozzle (which accommodates 2" diameter vacuum hose) and shroud housing are highly resilient yet adjustable and flexible enough to minimize the chance of damage from debris. The shroud's low profile design allows for an unobstructed view while operating the Bronco. 

#462.G2 Walk Behind Stripper
Yes, we found a way to improve on the most reliable, best known and used floor stripper on the market! The #462.G2 replaces the #462 Stripper in the Taylor Tools line. This new machine includes a push plate on the handle bars and a kick plate on the back of the frame to allow additional drive force, a new front end weight design, bigger and more rugged frame and the option to use an auxiliary weight. Even better news…the price of the #462.G2 is the SAME as the original #462! While the original #462 will no longer be available, you will still be able buy parts for it.

464R self propelled walk behind floor stripper


The #464 Self-Propelled Stripper, already the best stripper on the market, is now the #464R and it’s now even better.

The #464R now has a quick reverse control lever to be used at the end of a cut or to reposition the machine. Built around the trouble-free, quiet Model #462 heavy duty stripper design - also, still available for sale - this incredibly powerful #464R machine can quickly and efficiently tackle the most difficult removal jobs - with little or no strain on the operator.


Powerful - One motor drives the machine with 185 lbs. of thrust while a second motor provides the blade action. The operator steers the machine with little or no elbow grease required.


Fast- In field tests, the #464R removed Collins & Aikman Power Bond glue down carpet at the rate of more than 27 lineal feet per minute (6" wide strips).


Versatile - Removes direct glue down carpet, resilient sheet goods, vinyl tile and other difficult floor accumulations.


Economical - The #464R Self-Propelled Stripper is far less expensive than other self-propelled strippers.


Efficient - Gets down to and through the adhesive.


Quiet - The #464R incorporates the #462 blade action which means a quiet operation.
