Introductory comment
GENIE B is a floor scrubbing machine which, via the
mechanical action of the rotating brush and the chemical
action of a water/detergent solution, can clean any type of
flooring. As it advances, it also collects the dirt removed and
the detergent solution not absorbed by the floor.
The machine must be used only for this purpose. Even
the best machines will only work well if used correctly and
kept in good working order. We therefore suggest you read
this instruction booklet carefully and read it again whenever
difficulties arise while using the machine. If necessary,
remember that our assistance service (organised in
collaboration with our dealers) is always available for advice
or direct intervention.
Intended use
The scrubbing machine is designed exclusively for the
professional cleaning of surfaces and floors in industrial,
commercial and public environments. The machine is only
suitable for use in closed (or at least covered) places.
The machine is not suitable for use in the rain, or under
water jets. It is FORBIDDEN to use the machine in places
with a potentially explosive atmosphere, for picking up
dangerous dusts or inflammable liquids. In addition, it is not
suitable as a means of transport for people or objects.

CHOOSING AND USING THE BRUSHES
POLYPROPYLENE BRUSH (PPL)
Used on all types of floors. Good resistance to wear and tear, and hot water (no greater than 60°C). The Polypropylene brush is
non-hygroscopic and therefore retains its characteristics even when working in wet conditions.
PAD HOLDER
The pad holder is recommended for cleaning shiny surfaces.
There are two types of pad holders of the CENTER LOCK type, equipped with a snap-type central locking system in plastic that
allows the abrasive floor pads to be perfectly centred and held without any risk of them becoming detached:
1. fitted with a series of anchor points that allow the abrasive floor pad to be held and dragged while working
2. fitted with a series of groups of bristles that allow the abrasive floor pad to be held and dragged while working
