IDENTIFICATION DATA
For technical assistance or to request replacement parts, always
give the model, the version and serial number written on the serial
number plate.
TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
The Genie XS is a scrubbing machine that is able to clean a wide
range of flooring and dirt types by means of the mechanical action
of the discoidal brush and the chemical action of a water-detergent
solution. As it advances, it also collects the dirt that has been
removed and the detergent solution that has not been absorbed by
the floor. The appliance must only be used for this purpose.
INTENDED USE
This scrubbing machine was designed and built for the cleaning
(scrubbing and drying) of smooth, compact flooring in the
commercial, residential and industrial sectors by a qualified operator
in proven safety conditions. The scrubbing machine is not suitable
for cleaning rugs or carpets. The appliance is only suitable for use in
indoor - or at least covered - areas.
ATTENTION: The appliance is not suitable for use in the rain,
or under jets of water.
IT IS FORBIDDEN to use the appliance for picking up dangerous
dusts or inflammable liquids in places with an explosive atmosphere. In
addition, it is not suitable as a means of transport for people or objects.
SAFETY
Operator cooperation is paramount for accident prevention. No
accident prevention programme can be effective without the full
co-operation of the operator who is directly responsible for machine
operation. The majority of occupational accidents that happen both
in the workplace or whilst moving are caused by failure to respect
the most basic safety rules. An attentive, careful operator is most
effective guarantee against accidents and is fundamental in order to
implement any prevention programme.
SERIAL NUMBER PLATE
The serial number plate is located on the inside of the appliance in
the front end of the frame, indicating its general characteristics (in
particular, the serial number). The serial number is a very important
piece of information and should always be provided together with any
request for assistance or when purchasing spare parts.

SELECTION AND USE OF THE BRUSH
POLYPROPYLENE BRUSH (PPL)
Used on all types of floors. Good resistance to wear and tear, and hot water (no greater than 50°C.). The polypropylene brush is nonhygroscopic and therefore retains its characteristics even when working in wet conditions.
THICKNESS OF THE BRISTLES
Thicker bristles are more rigid and are therefore used on smooth floors or floors with small joints.
On uneven floors or those with deep joints, it is advisable to use softer bristles which can enter the gaps more easily.
Remember that when the bristles are worn and therefore too short, they will become rigid and are no longer able to penetrate and clean deep
down. In this case, like with overlarge bristles, the brush tends to jump.
PAD HOLDER
The pad holder is recommended for cleaning shiny surfaces.
There are two types of pad holder:
The traditional pad holder is fitted with a series of anchor points that allow the abrasive floor pad to be held and dragged while working.
the CENTRE LOCK type pad holder not only has anchor points, but also a snap-type central locking system in plastic that allows the abrasive
floor pad to be perfectly centred and held without any risk of it becoming detached. This type of pad holder is recommended above all for
machines with more than one brush, where the centring of the abrasive discs is difficult.
