Driving forward with new ride-on scrubber drier
07 September 2015
The new TASKI swingo 2100μicro (micro) scrubber drier from Diversey Care, a division of Sealed Air, is an ultra-compact ride-on that is said to deliver the productivity of a ride-on floorcare machine in settings where pedestrian equipment is traditionally used.
Dr Ilham Kadri, president of Diversey Care, explains: "This innovative scrubber drier marks a turning point in our strategy to develop machines that are so productive they greatly reduce the total cost of ownership. Building service contractors and in-house teams in retail, healthcare, food service, hospitality, transport and education can all benefit from this performance boost.”
Innovations on the new machine include a special offset feature to clean right up against walls. This allows the machine to clean to the floor edge in a single pass. There is no need for secondary cleaning.
Another innovation is the use of reliable low-energy LED lighting that allows the machine to work for longer without drawing excessive battery charge. This is suitable for low ambient lighting applications, but more generally promotes machine visibility to raise awareness and improve safety.
A special 'active sitting' driving positon helps support the operator in an ideal posture and reduces fatigue while allowing easy access. Machine speed is automatically reduced when turning to promote stability. The design offers full-width protection for the operator to reduce the risk of injuries.
The machine supports extensive customisation to enable intelligent total cleaning solutions matched to any application requirement. In addition to a number of machine-specific options, any tool or accessory from the extensive TASKI trolley range can be specified. Operators can configure their machines to work autonomously on routine or bespoke applications without users wasting time locating and retrieving items.
The large tank, efficient scrubber mechanism, advanced cleaning solution control and energy management ensure the machine can cover areas, to 5000m2, and work autonomously for longer between refills and recharges. Downtime is minimised so that the machine spends more time on productive work.
The ultra-compact design and tricycle-style configuration promotes manoeuvrability and agility in confined and congested areas. With its 55cm working width, 138cm overall length and less-than-180cm turning circle the scrubber drier can operate productively and safely between obstacles, pass through normal doors and be transported in standard lifts.
