ROKAMAT Grinding Machines – Chameleon (2000)

Light Weight Universal Machine. Grinding, smoothing, cleaning, polishing, stripping wallpaper- all with one machine

  • Tool rpm: 150-570
  • Power Consumption: 1.000W


The Chameleon is the all-rounder amongst the Rokamat Machines – and at the same time easy and comfortable to use.

It also uses the well-proven Rokamat drive concept with a motor mounted on a waist belt, and power transmission via a flexible drive shaft. The handpiece of the versatile sanding machine with two contra-rotating tool discs weighs just 2.4 kg. This ensures smooth running and at the same time offers a large supporting and sanding area for plane surfaces. Like its name, given from the animal kingdom, the Chameleon perfectly adapts to all backgrounds.

A major advantage of the machine is the extensive range of accessories with which the Chameleon can be fitted . This allows you to master almost any sanding job without difficulty – and even clean concrete boarding. The fields of application are… sanding thermal insulation boards, rubbing up sanding final coats, smoothing base coats, scratching  plasters, flattening wet concrete, and even stripping wallpaper. All this can be done by this unique machine which was also used in Berlin during the construction of the Holocaust Memorial between 2003 and 2005.The Rokamat Chameleon is known as one of the best and quickest wallpaper strippers on the market.  It offers a lightweight product with smooth operation thanks to its contra-rotating  discs and evenness due to the large operating surface. No longer will wallpaper removal be a tedious and time-consuming job.
