Dependable cleaning

To help improve safety and performance for facility managers, Tennant Australia & New Zealand has unveiled its newest brand of automatic scrubbers.

Since 1870, Tennant Company has worked to empower its customers to reduce their environmental impact and create a cleaner, safer and healthier world.

Its products have spanned equipment for cleaning and maintaining surfaces in industrial, commercial and outdoor environments; detergent-free cleaning technologies; and commercial floor coating systems for protecting and upgrading surfaces.

According to the organisation, Tennant Company’s extensive global field service network has seen it achieve sales of $1 billion in 2017, selling its products directly to 15 countries and through distributors in more than 100 countries. In Australia, Tennant Australia is bringing new products and technologies to the marketplace to help facility managers find better floor care solutions to their cleaning and operational challenges.

In August of this year, Tennant Australia & New Zealand announced the unveiling of its newest automatic scrubber line – the Tennant T600 and T600e workhorse.

Chad Angeli, General Manager, Tennant Australia and New Zealand, says the models were designed with the latest in cleaning technology to deliver a consistent, high-quality performance, while working even harder to meet the needs of today’s facility managers.

“The durable 5680/5700 line from Tennant has been providing customers from around the world with a unique value proposition for over 20 years. Its versatility has helped customers that span from large retail stores, to industrial manufacturing facilities,” Chad says.

“Now, the T600 workhorse takes what customers have always come to expect from the 5680/5700, but moves forward with a new design that makes it easier to use and a dependable cleaning result.”

In terms of versatility, the machine is able to clean a wide range of hard-floor surfaces with a choice of cleaning heads, including an orbital option. When compared to previous models, the large-scale 121-litre solution tank and 140-litre recovery tank allows users to scrub longer between empty and fill cycles. A variable speed control bail, propel toggle and speed setting are designed with operators in mind and all within reach for enhanced ease of use.

Easier maintenance is supported by the machine’s Smart-Fill automatic battery watering system (standard on T600/T600e), which offers a nearly maintenance-free battery watering system by removing the task of checking, opening and filling flooded batteries. It is also built to withstand the toughest environment with industrial-grade construction featuring corrosion-resistant scrub deck and rustproof polyethylene body and tanks and carries an exclusive 10-year warranty.

“For maintained safety, Tennant is the only company that has a listed Type EE battery-powered floor cleaning machine for use in a number of special hazardous environments,” Chad says.

The T600 and T600e replace Tennant’s current 5700/5680, which Chad says has been recognised for its durability, reliability and superior performance for more than a decade.

“Tennant ANZ is committed to bring more new products and technologies to the marketplace in the years ahead to help customers with solutions to their cleaning and operational challenges.”
