NEW SCRUBBER DRIER IS BIGGER, BETTER & FASTER ON LARGER FLOORS
The new TASKI swingo 4000 scrubber drier from Diversey is a high performance battery powered ride-on floor care machine designed for cleaning large areas quickly and efficiently. It is ideal for round-the-clock cleaning in retail, transport, healthcare or any other application with expansive open spaces. This is the largest TASKI by Diversey scrubber drier and, like all models in the range, it offers a number of performance, productivity and sustainability benefits.
"The TASKI swingo 4000 delivers a new level of superior floor cleaning performance and is the only machine on the market to combine a wide working width and large tank size with the outer dimensions of a more compact unit,” says Marco Verdonkschot, General Manager at TASKI. “The unique and patented all-wheel steering makes the machine extremely agile and increases its manoeuvrability even in congested areas. With these and an array of other innovations the TASKI swingo 4000 is designed to increase overall productivity and reduce overall cleaning costs."
The scrubber drier’s wide working width of 850mm and fast cleaning speed of 7.5Km/h combine to promote productivity and help operators to achieve significant time savings over otherwise comparable machines. Up to 6375m2 of floor can be cleaned every hour with more area covered during each pass of the machine. The large 200 litre capacity tank further promotes productivity because it reduces the number and frequency of time-consuming filling stops. This means that operators can clean bigger floors better and faster than in the past.
The unique, patented all-wheel steering makes the machine very agile with excellent manoeuvrability in congested areas. An extremely low noise level and a special ECO mode with additional noise reduction makes the machine ideal for daytime cleaning in sound-sensitive areas. The ergonomic design with low operator access, an adjustable seat with high seatback and a new accelerator pedal promotes safe operation and comfort. A good all-round view of the machine and working area and an excellent squeegee deflection allow the operator to clean close along walls and around obstacles.
The machine is designed for excellent cleaning and perfect drying results. Its innovative, new and patented W-shaped squeegee follows the floor profile and removes more than 99 per cent of water in curves, while turning and even on difficult floors such as tiles with deep grouts or surfaces that are uneven or structured. Special squeegee blades and a direct suction line allow pick-up of small debris without clogging. The proven three-wheel layout helps to ensure the squeegee remains in contact with the floor at all times without any adjustment. The result is a clean and dry floor which can be walked on almost immediately, ideal for daytime cleaning and other applications where public access needs to be maintained. Keeping the floor clean and dry in this way reduces the risk of slips, one of the biggest causes of accidents in the workplace and public areas.
The new scrubber drier saves up to 50 per cent of cleaning solution compared to comparable conventional machines because of its patented Cleaning Solution Dosing (CSD) system. This automatically adjusts the amount of solution being used to match the machine’s speed. No puddles are left on the floor even when slowing down to turn corners. Further sustainability benefits and cost savings are made if the machine is equipped with the TASKI by Diversey JFit dilution control system. This accurately delivers cleaning product direct to the pipes supplying the scrubber mechanism. Consistent solution is ensured for optimum cleaning performance. There is no need to prepare solution before starting work, or to rinse the tank afterwards, which eliminates product wastage and saves time before and after the shift.
The use of advanced materials and long life components promotes machine uptime while minimising service and repair costs. The newly-designed squeegee and brush coupling/uncoupling simplifies machine preparation and maintenance. These components can also be removed without touching the brushes and pads which enhances operator safety, especially in applications where broken glass or other sharp items can be collected by them during cleaning. Routine and daily tasks are simplified by a number of features also found on other TASKI machines. For example, all parts needing frequent maintenance checks, such as squeegee, brushes and filters, are coloured yellow for easy identification and simpler operator training, and can be removed without tools.
Operator convenience and productivity is enhanced with an innovative Start/Stop function. This allows all machine settings including solution flow level, brush pressure and ECO mode to be stored at the push of a button at the end of a cleaning operation. These saved settings are automatically used when the machine is restarted so that cleaning can commence immediately.
