Appropriate Sander?

Is there any reason that this machine would not be appropriate to use for refinishing my hardwoods? Powr-Flite Internet Store - Commercial Cleaning Equipment - Floor Machines

No floor expert...but I don't think that would give a very good job. From my 20+ years in the military (and we used very similar machines all the time) you could wind up with gouges when changing direction. Maybe in the hands of an expert it might work, but when they talk about sanding and grinding..I think they are probably talking about concrete floors.

Normally a drum type sander is used..or for lighter finish removal a large (similar to what you linked to) random orbital or vibratory sander.
