Scrubber Driers

Hello all you lovely people out there!!!

I was wondering what scrubber driers you all have as I am looking at getting one for my 3 halls? I have been currently using a buffing machine with a red pad on and my wet pick up machine. I love doing the job but it takes all afternoon to do and I do it 3 days a week. I was asked by my HT how can I reduce the time and I mentioned the scrubber driers and she said to put in a bid to get one, so I am interested in thte different types etc.

Re: Scrubber Driers

I use this Numatic.... https://www.equip4work.co.uk/numatic-tw ... gL0AvD_BwE

itll cost ya in the region of £2,000 and my hall floor which is roughly 330m squared. It takes roughly between 30mins -1hr but is dry almost instantly... id be lost without it if I'm honest

Re: Scrubber Driers

Same as Gazza I've got the Numatic but mine is corded, think my hall is about 600 square feet and it takes about an hour to get the machine set up, clean the floor, empty, clean and put the machine away, the biggest advantage is having a dry floor straight away, you'd struggle to get that doing it by mop and it would take hours.

Re: Scrubber Driers

Numatic TT4055, it's an older model I think but easy to use. It is a slightly larger machine. Repairs are straight forward, I'm awaiting a new solenoid. You will save loads of time.

Re: Scrubber Driers

We use a Scrubex 3:28

Very light and rechargeable. It will do our 2 halls, 10x14 and 10x10 on one charge although you will need to empty and refill the water twice.

Very good, easy to use.

Re: Scrubber Driers

Bought a cordless Numatic a few years ago, second hand on Ebay for £300. Worked it hard for eight years, never a problem. Don't be put off by used models if budget is tight.

Absolutely get one, they'll save the school money cos you will do 3 halls effortlessly and quickly.
