starts from 100, which indicates the 100% of the total charge and decreases from 10 to 10. When the
charge level reaches 20%, the display starts blinking,
so you are about the end of working.
GB
HOUR METER
The machine is equipped with an hour meter located
on the same display (1) of the battery charge level
indicator. Pressing the button (2), the first data indicates the working hours and after a few seconds the
working minutes are shown.
SQUEEGEE ASSEMBLY

part of the squeegee (2) inside the slots present on
the support.
2. To block the squeegee tighten the stud bolts (3).
3. Insert the squeegee hose (4) into its coupling, respecting its position as indicated in the figure.
ATTENTION:
After a few seconds of the indication 10% and after
this, the blinking of the four lines, all the functions
stop automatically. With the remaining charge it is
anyhow possible to finish the drying operation before proceeding to the recharge.
ADJUSTMENT OF THE SQUEEGEE
In order to have a perfect drying result through the
squeegee, the rear rubber must have the lower bending uniformly adjusted in all its length. For the adjustment, it is necessary to put oneself in working
condition and therefore the suction motor has to be
switched on and the brushes have to function together with the detergent solution.
The lower part of the rubber is too much bent
Take off the pressure rotating the wing nut (5) counterclockwise.
The lower part of the rubber is not much bent
Increase the pressure rotating the wing nut (5)
clockwise. Check that the wheels which adjust the
height do not rest on the floor, in this case adjust
them as indicated in paragraph "Height adjustment".
The bending is not uniform
Adjust the squeegee inclination rotating counterclockwise the wing nut (6) to increase the bending in
the central part, or clockwise to increase the bending
on the extremities.
Height adjustment
Once that the pressure and inclination of the squeegee have been adjusted, it is necessary to fix this optimum condition making touch slightly the wheels
onto the floor. Rotate clockwise the registers (7) to
lower the wheels or counterclockwise to raise them.
Both wheels must be adjusted in the same measure.
To act upon the register (7) loosen at the same time
the two milled ring nuts, adjust the height acting on
the upper one and then fix the adjustment screwing
and blocking the lower one.
8
ATTENTION:
Every type of floor requires a specific adjustment.
For example, concrete floors (where the friction results to be high) need little pressure, while smooth
floors (ceramics) need higher pressure.
If the cleaning operations are made always on the
same type of floor, the adjustment can change only
in function of the rubber wear.
ADJUSTMENT SIDE RUBBERS
To adjust the side rubbers, it is necessary to act upon
the knob (1). Screwing down, more pressure is given
and unscrewing, pressure is being taken off. The reason of the adjustment is to obtain an uniform rubber
bending.
NOTE: If the rubber should lower in the rear part, it
is necessary to restore the correct bending by acting
upon the screw (2).

WORKING IN MANUAL MODE
The manual model is useful when, in special cases, it
is necessary to carry out separately only the washing
with the brushes or only the drying of the floor.
ATTENTION:
The washing and drying functions, when they are
not carried out simultaneously, represent an improper use of the machine (see under paragraph
“GENERAL RULES OF SECURITY”). If they are carried out separately, it is necessary to forbid the
working areas to the passage of non-authorized
personnel and to signal the areas of moist floors
with suitable signs.

ADJUSTMENT OF THE BRUSHES PRESSURE
Both in automatic as in manual mode it is possible
through the selector (4) to adjust the brushes pressure on the floor in eight established levels. During
the operation, we can visualize on the display (1) the
value in percentage of the electric absorption of the
brushes motor by pressing the button (3).
WORKING ADJUSTMENTS
Both in automatic as in manual mode, during the
first metres check:
1. that the adjustment of the detergent solution
flow is sufficient to wet the floor uniformly avoiding
the leakage of detergent from the splash guards (see
under paragraph “FLOW ADJUSTMENT OF THE DETERGENT SOLUTION”).
2. that the squeegee adjustment guarantees a perfect drying result (see under paragraph “ADJUSTMENT OF THE SQUEEGEE”).
3. that the brushes pressure permits an efficient
washing action in function of the dirt and the speed
(see under paragraph “ADJUSTMENT OF THE BRUSHES PRESSURE”).
SIDE BRUSH
The machine is equipped with a side brush that permits to clean near the right side borders.
FLOW ADJUSTMENT OF THE DETERGENT SOLUTION
To adjust the detergent solution quantity that flows
down onto the brushes it is necessary to act upon
the solution valve knob (10) placed on the upper
part of the side instrument board, rotating counterclockwise to increase it and clockwise to reduce it up
to closure of the flow.
The side brush has an independent water flow adjustment, with a solution valve (11) placed under the
frame near the brush itself.
Please remember that the side brush does not have a
scrubbing function but simply moves the dirt towards the center of the machine.
ATTENTION:
In order not to overload the brushes motor, it is convenient to reduce the brushes pressure going from
smooth floors to rough ones (ex. concrete).
The presence on the display (1) of a blinking warning
from P2 to P8 indicates that the pressure level set
determines an overload of the brushes motor. It is
therefore necessary to reduce the pressure up to the
level where the blinking warning stops.
ELECTRIC PROTECTION
The machine is equipped with an electronic system
of protection for all components that carry out
functions of power or control. This device blocks the
defective component and indicates on the display (1)
the corresponding alarm from ”AL01” to “AL20”.
The last two figures indicate the number of the
alarm code.
ATTENTION:
To restore the functioning of the component,
turn off and on again the machine acting upon
the key switch. If the problem persists, please
contact the authorized technical assistance.
The function is activated acting upon the switch (13)
both in manual as in automatic mode. The signal
lamp (25) indicates that the side brush is active and
in working position.
OVERFLOW DEVICE
In order to avoid serious damages to the suction motors, the machine is equipped with a float that intervenes when the recovery tank is full, closing the suc-
12
GB
tion, the switching on of the signal lamp (20) for the
signalling of the full recovery tank and consequently
to the drying stop.
When this happens, it is necessary to empty the recovery tank (see under paragraph “RECOVERY TANK
EMPTYING AND CLEANING”).
STOP OF THE MACHINE AFTER
CLEANING OPERATION
IN AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL WORKING MODE:
1. A the end of the washing cycle put the selector
(12) into the central position (BREAK WASHING). In
this way automatically the brushes lift, the solenoid
valve shuts down and it is possible to finish the drying operation.
2. When the accelerator pedal is released for more
than 3 seconds, the squeegee raises itself and the
suction switches off automatically.
3. After three seconds, the accelerator can be
pressed again, if a machine's transfer has to be made
(the transfer can be carried out also if the pedal is
never lifted, in this case the squeegee gets lifted and
the suction stop automatically after 15 seconds).
4. Turn the switch key counterclockwise to switch
off the machine.
5. Insert the parking brake (see under paragraph
“EMERGENCY-PARKING BRAKE”).

RECOMMENDED BRUSHES
Brushes must be chosen depending on type of floor and dirt to be removed.
The employed material and the bristles diameter are the elements that distinguish different types of brushes.
MATERIAL
CHARACTERISTICS
PPL (Polypropylene)
Good wear resistance. Maintains characteristics with hot water up to 60°C. It is not hygroscopic.
NYLON
Excellent wear resistance, even with hot water over 60°C. It is hygroscopic. It looses its physical characteristics over the time.
TYNEX
Nylon bristles with grains of abrasive material. Use with caution in order not to mark the floor or ruin the polishing.
BRISTLES THICKNESS
Thicker bristles are more rigid and must be used on smooth floor or floor with small joints. On irregular floors with deep joints or
relieves, it is recommended to use softer bristles which penetrate more easily and deeper. Please be aware that when brush bristles
are worn out and therefore too small, they become rigid and unable to penetrate and clean deeper. This may also happen with
thicker bristles creating brush vibration.
