GENERAL OPERATION
120 Volt
60 Hz
Solution Tank: The solution tank is located under the lid, at
the front of the machine, with the filling-funnel M1 in an accessible position for easy re-filling.
WARNING: Always switch off and unplug the machine before
filling the solution tank.
Note: Always empty the dirty water collection tank, as described
in the next paragraph, before refilling the tank with the diluted
detergent solution. The solution tank has a maximum capacity
of 5.75 gallons (22 liters). Always use the products and the
dilution quantities recommended by the seller. Always use low
foam detergents. Use defoamer if excess foam develops.
Remove hose from vac intake and pick up defoamer directly
into the recovery tank.
Water collection tank: The dirty water collection tank should
be emptied, preferably each time after use, so that the dirt does
not settle there. To do this, remove the plug of the drain hose
M2, which is kept in position by a simple spring clip, and
empty dirty water into the proper drain conforming to local regulations.
Squeegee: The squeegee has the final task of completing the
drying of the floor and it is very important for it to be in the
correct position. Lower the squeegee to the working position
by depressing pedal M3 as shown. Adjust the position of the
squeegee by means of the knobs M4 so that the black rubber
bar is about 1⁄32" (the thickness of a business card) from
the floor. The squeegee behind this is in para rubber and must
press on the floor with a certain amount of force. After the
first few hours the squeegee adjusts itself to the correct angle and drying becomes even better. Squeegee
pressure is adjusted by knob M14.

GENERAL OPERATION
The area to be scrubbed: Debris and grit must be swept up
before starting the scubbing operation to avoid vacuum line blockage and to permit the detergent to perform efficiently.
• Lower the brush by pressing pedal M9.
• Lower the squeegee by depressing pedal M3.
• Set the detergent solution supply to minimum by
adjusting knob M12. Experience will help with the
selection of the correct solution amount. Moving outward
up and down as illustrated, allows cord to keep
off of dirty floor and from draging dirt into cleaned path.
• Finally, adjust the correct supply of detergent in proportion
to the amount of dirt and amount of speed of
advance by means of lever M12; this is a matter of
experience. At this point the machine is ready to carry
out the operations of scrubbing and drying at the same time.
Prior to startup and operation: Caution: A) Loose objects
on the floor can become dangerous projectiles if struck by the
high speed pad. Remove them before operating machine. B) Keep
machine moving to prevent damage to finish or floor.
C) These machines are designed for level floor operations only.
DO NOT OPERATE ON RAMPS OR INCLINES
unless adequate personnel are available for assistance.
Starting up and operation: Plug the machine into an outlet
position allowing operation by moving away from the outlet.
NOTE: The PAS16 is intended for use with 120V/60Hz cycle
grounded circuit. Extension cords are not recommended.
Then:
• Press switches M7 and M8.
Particularly dirty floors: Certain floors or areas may require
special attention and, in some cases, cleaning twice. Go over the
floor quickly the first time, with the squeegee raised and the brush
in the working position. In this way, the detergent solution is left
on the floor for a longer time and can dissolve the heavy dirt. The
second time, go over the floor more slowly with both the brush
and the squeegee lowered. Always apply and brush stripping solu-

GENERAL OPERATION

tion without squeegee and vacuum then return to area after a minimum of 5 minutes and remove the suspended dirt, finish and
solution.
Squeegee: Every week, check the blades of the squeegee and
wash them carefully. Then replace them in the correct working
position. If drying is not perfect even after the unit has been
cleaned, replace any blades which are excessively worn. If the
squeegee does not pick up enough water or streaks, lift and wipe
off the blades.
The pad driver or brush must be in good working condition
because it is the component which removes the dirt.
To remove the drive block, pad or brush:
• Fold the vinyl bumper over the left side of the
brush housing.
• Depress the brush pedal (M9) with your right hand
hold the brush position to allow free spinning by hand
of the driver or brush until the scissors style spring
lock can be squeezed with your left hand.
• Depress the brush pedal (M9) completely down
To replace the drive block, pad or brush:
• Hold the brush pedal (M9) down while centering
the brush or driver under coupling. While squeezing the
spring lock together lower the coupling into the driver or
brush center by allowing the brush pedal to raise.
Release the scissors spring lock
The machine is supplied with a pad driver. Brushes in tynex,
poly and steel are available on request, together with floor pads
recommended for use with the pad driver. Black for stripping,
green for deep scrub, blue for cleansing and red for light scrub.
Water collection tank: This tank should be cleaned every week.
Lift the lid and remove the panel or funnel M1 of the solution
tank. Remove the strap M13 and lift the vacuum motor out of its
seat. Thoroughly clean the filter and wash out the dirt deposited
in the tank with a jet of water, allowing it to drain out through hose
M2. If necessary, replace filter. Replace float cage with open side
facing front of scrubber.
