First CS7000 LEV arrives in Southampton

Wessex Cleaning Equipment, based in Southampton, has become the first Nilfisk distributor in the EU to purchase the award winning combination scrubber sweeper, the CS7000 LEV. The Nilfisk CS7000 LEV (LPG hybrid) is acclaimed for its ecological credentials and has been purchased by Wessex for its expanding hire fleet. The new machine replaces a Nilfisk CR1200 with the intention that customers will benefit substantially from the reduction in fuel costs.

The CS7000 LEV utilises state of the art electric drive technology which enables much reduced emissions. The electric hybrid technology means that the engine drives a large alternator to generate electricity and a 36 volt battery pack provides energy storage. This hybrid system results in 'best in class for fuel economy', providing a direct fuel saving of up to 30%.

A unique feature of the Nilfisk CS7000 is a new hot water scrubbing facility which delivers excellent cleaning performance. Water is heated up to 55 degrees and can be used with or without concentrated chemical as required. New productivity standards have also been set at 7756 actual square metres per hour.
