Nilfisk launches the SC1500

The Nilfisk-Advance Group has announced the launch of its first stand on scrubber dryer, the Nilfisk SC1500. This new compact, high performing scrubber dryer is designed with simplicity in mind: simply step up, push the pedal and go. The new SC1500 has a 510mm cleaning path.

A standard 31kg of scrub pressure means the SC1500 performs like a much bigger machine yet with excellent manoeuvrability. A 3.5 hours battery run time and robust 44 litre solution/46 litre recovery tank capacities results in far more time spent on the floor. A wrap around squeegee design guarantees 100% water pick up.

A distinct feature of the SC1500 is an intuitive dashboard with LCD display that is easy to use and understand. A one touch function controls all scrubbing parameters - detergent strength, brush pressure, water flow and vacuum are all controlled with a single button.

Nilfisk's on board detergent system, Ecoflex, controls water consumption, detergent and energy usage matching the machine's performance to the level of clean required. The 'Green meets Clean' philosophy is very much in evidence with the SC1500, switching between water only cleaning to weak or high strength chemical power. Heavily soiled areas are catered for with an additional burst of power for extra performance before the machine switches back to eco-mode.

Michael Fenger, Nilfisk's general manager of global marketing and product management, said: “Our ambition with the Nilfisk SC1500 was to make the best stand-on scrubber dryer in the market place. We have focused on developing a high quality, reliable machine with increased productivity and superior cleaning performance. We feel that this best supports the needs of our customers in this demanding sector and we are delighted with the result.”
