New TASKI swingo 2100μicro Drives Productivity Forwards
Macro Floorcare In A Micro Format
The new TASKI swingo 2100μicro (micro) scrubber drier from Diversey Care, a division of Sealed Air, is a revolutionary ultra-compact ride-on that delivers the productivity of a ride-on floorcare machine in settings where pedestrian equipment is traditionally used. Its class-leading performance is up to 22 per cent better than comparable models.
“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,” says Dr Ilham Kadri, President of Diversey Care. “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 unique offset feature to clean right up against walls. This capability is unavailable on any other ride-on and allows the machine to clean to the floor edge in a single pass. There is no need for unproductive 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 ideal for low ambient lighting applications but more generally promotes machine visibility to raise awareness and improve safety.
A unique “active sitting” driving positon supports the operator in the ideal posture and reduces fatigue while allowing easy access for maximum productivity. 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 larger areas, up 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 it can operate productively and safely between obstacles, pass through normal doors and be transported in standard lifts.
