I have nothing down, I drive in and then use the dollies to move stuff around

just bare concrete? That’s kind of the route I’m planning on going.

I probably wouldn’t drive on it if it was less then a year old, but it was 16 years old when I bought the house .Barely leaves a scratch .

Swisstrax or one of the click together floors works well. I drive in and out with studs once in a while. Otherwise, wheels roll good too on it.

Looks good..does the water seep through or stay on top?

We use tractor supply mats in the studio. Drive in and out. Right now they are in store mode. Shop dollies and ez mover work on them even coming off mats. We did nothing to the floor.

If you're doing any kind of coating do a mousture test first. If you don't have a vapor barrier it will fail, period. Without a vapor barrier it fails from the bottom up, not the top down.

The XP was the most fun sled ever made - but I liked my XR more. The 850 takes it to a whole different level.

nothing is carbide proof. you could can only put stuff down that will get chewed up before the concrete gets scratched.

 The 1/2" rubber is-been down 17 years!

I really thought about rubber flooring but was worried about carbides biting in...how well do they glide across?

 Well enough-you can always put machine on dollies also-I just back in on rubber & drive out-get thick stuff & stays in place-thinner stuff has to be bolted down!

I have the solid in the most of the shop and the deep thru area in the wash bay. Works great.

And a roll of poly from the hardware store does not count. It breaks down after a while. The guy that did my floors told me that it only lasts a few years but it’s better than nothing.
