WINDSOR AUTO SCRUBBERS


Windsor Chariot Iscrub Auto Scrubber

If you are looking for a good auto scrubber the three main features to look for are innovation, power, and maneuverability. Windsor for equipment is one off the oldest floor equipment manufacturers in the United States. They're innovation in design rises above and beyond any other company that produces cleaning equipment, the chariot Iscrub 20 is no exception. Its design moves forward to reflect an auto scrubber that bridges the gap between conventional walk behind machines and larger ride on units. It accomplishes this by integrating a platform the user stands on while operating the unit. To address the normal power issues such as scrub speed and runtime the chariot boosts its power with a 36 Volt electrical system that powers the drive mechanism, recovery system, and brush system. No other floor equipment manufacturer comes close to the unique features that this machine has. By designing the Windsor chariot with a small footprint the unit is extremely maneuverable and is perfect for cleaning smaller areas.

The key strengths of the Windsor are found in its drive system, recovery system and scrubbing system. The drive system on the chariot relies on a large gear drive motor and chain drive unit. Most auto scrubbers in this class rely on a belt drive or direct drive transaxle that leads to premature motor burnout resulting in hefty repair costs. Windsor skirts around this problem by integrating gears to cut down on motor wear. The recovery system on the chariot is used to recover dirty water once the floor has been scrubbed. On most auto scrubbers the recovery system consists of a squeegee that trails behind the unit and is connected to the vacuum system. The problem with a trailing squeegee is that it can get caught in doorways and on shelving causing the user to waste valuable time remounting the squeegee. Windsor combats this by integrating the squeegee system underneath the scrubber so that it cannot get caught up and slow cleaning process. The squeegee is neatly tucked underneath the machine behind a scrubbing unit which cuts down on over splash from the squeegee edges in tuen making the floor cleaner. This design is so innovative that no other manufacturer has anything like it. The key to cleaner floors is to have a good scrubbing system on the machine. The Windsor chariot accomplishes this by giving the user a choice of either a scrubbing brush or Pad driver so that floor pads mat be used. This gives the machine increased versatility to be used on many types of flooring. Scrubbing brushes are an excellent choice when cleaning tile floors because of their ability to scrub into grub lines. Floor pads are great for cleaning vinyl tile or smooth flooring and can be changed quickly when the pad gets old. Windsor seems to have thought the cleaning process through completely when it comes to this machine.

Another key feature to look for when purchasing an auto scrubber is how it uses the cleaning solution to clean the floor. The chariot utilizes a unique system called aqua-mizer technology which Chambers the cleaning solution in the brush system in turn using 50% less cleaning solution. For a commercial cleaning company this can lower costs and increase cleaning effectiveness at the same time. If the unit needs to be serviced at any time the upper tank and back of unit fold down giving easy access to the battery compartment. This can cut down on high repair costs by eliminating the need to disassemble the machine to work on affected areas. Using the machine is easy, the user panel is clearly defined as to what switches and knobs control various parts of the machine. A first-time user can easily hop on the machine and be trained within 10 minutes. This can also cut down on extensive labor costs when it comes to training. The average lifespan on this unit is about 10 to 15 years.  In the span of its lifetime some parts may need to be replaced.  Windsor recommends that only OEM Windsor parts be used on the machine in the repair process.  Windsor parts can be purchased for any Windsor floor equipment dealer.

Overall there is nothing like the Windsor chariot in its class. The machine is unique in every way and it is evident that Windsor has obviously listened to their clients and designed a machine that eliminates common auto scrubber problems. At only 209 pounds without batteries the chariot can be easily moved from jobsite to jobsite with the use of a truck and lift gate. This makes the unit perfect for the smaller commercial cleaner to clean small areas in multiple buildings. The Windsor is also perfect for LEED certified green buildings within overall decibel rating of 66.9 decibels.

Windsor Saber Compact 16

There many different types of auto scrubbers, walk behind auto scrubbers are used for cleaning small areas and ride on auto scrubbers are used for cleaning larger areas. The most sought-after auto scrubbers are smaller units that can easily be transported from one location to another. Smaller units cost less to repair and can maneuver easily in tight spaces. Most commercial cleaners use smaller scrubbers when cleaning multiple locations because of the ease of transportation. Their two main brush types on these types of auto scrubbers. The first type of brush system is a cylindrical brush that rotates just like the beater bar on a vacuum cleaner. This type of auto scrubber is great for cleaning ceramic tile floors because of its ability to scrub into grout lines, giving the floor overall cleaner appearance. More commonly known are disc type auto scrubbers which are more prevalent in smaller cleaning companies. The drawback to disc scrubbers is their inability to clean uneven floors. The saber compact auto scrubber by Windsor overcomes this obstacle by offering both cylindrical and disc cleaning systems.

The Windsor saber compact 16 unit is run-of-the-mill when it comes to its competition. Like most other auto scrubbers it utilizes a front brush system with trailing dirty water recovery system. The front brush system can either be purchased with a cylindrical brush or rotating disc.  When purchasing one of these units is important to know what type of floor or surface it will be used on. Unfortunately the system is not interchangeable within one unit. Both systems feature the same recovery system utilizing a half horsepower vacuum motor which is attached to a trailing 30 inch squeegee. The water recovery system has ample power to dry the floor as it cleans and is able to maneuver in and out of tight places. The disc system relies on a cord which draws its power from an electrical outlet. The drawback to corded machines is the inability to clean large areas without re-plugging in the cord. For smaller companies on a budget a corded unit is perfect because there is no need to replace batteries when they wear out. The cylindrical model is battery powered and runs on a 24 Volt system. For a machine of this size this is ample power to clean at least 17,000 ft. before recharging.

The disc scrubber is perfect for all types of flooring including vinyl tile, Terrazo, marble and rubber floors. These types of floors are usually very even and smooth and are perfect for floor pad cleaning. Floor pads are used in conjunction with the disc system which make it versatile to the type of job it needs to perform. In general, the darker the floor pad the more aggressive it will be at scrubbing the floor. Lighter colored floor pads can be used for gentle scrubbing and removing light soil. The brush motor on the saber disc unit relies on a 1.6 hp power plant that turns the disc scrub the floor. This motor is larger than most in its class and will last longer then smaller brush motors in comparable units. The electrical system on the disc unit runs on 125 Volt giving it consistent power at all times. The unit comes with a curved squeegee that traps water better than conventional straight squeegees eliminating splash and streaking once the floor has dried.

The cylindrical unit is perfect for tile and uneven floors. As this cylindrical brush rotates it digs deep into grout lines pulling dirt up and out so that the squeegee can recover the soiled water. The cylindrical brush will also float over uneven floors giving a uniform scrub with no dull spots after the floor dries. The disc unit relies on a .5 hp 24 Volt brush system powered by two 12 Volt  batteries. This machine can clean up to 17,000 ft. on a single charge and is perfect for long hallways and extended areas. The machines weighs just over 120 pounds without batteries making it extremely portable for multiple site cleaning. There is an assortment of brushes that can be purchased for the machine including a high low brush which is used for grout lines, a medium brush for general cleaning and a hard brush for cleaning concrete and other unfinished surfaces.

Both these machines are perfect for a smaller commercial cleaning company. Both units are equipped with a 6 gallon solution and 6 gallon recovery tank which should be more than suffice for smaller areas. The machine is easy to control and easy to maneuver around objects and can clean in tight areas. The best thing about the Windsor saber is that the controls are manual with no extra frills that can be costly to replace when they wear out. Overall this unit is low maintenance and is perfect for the money conscious user on a tight budget.
