Tennant T300e/T300 (03- 2015)

OPERATION

HOW THE MACHINE WORKS

Conventional scrubbing:

When using the conventional scrubbing mode, water and detergent mixture from the solution tank flows to the floor and the rotating brush(es)/pad(s) scrub the floor clean. As the machine moves forward, the squeegee with vacuum suction picks up the dirty solution from the floor into the recovery tank.

ec-H2O NanoClean Technology (option):

When using the ec-H2O NanoClean technology, normal water passes through a module where it is electrically converted into a cleaning solution. The electrically converted water attacks the dirt, allowing the machine to easily scrub away the suspended soil. The converted water then returns to normal water in the recovery tank.

BRUSH AND PAD INFORMATION

For best cleaning results use the appropriate brush or pad for your cleaning application. Listed below are brushes and pads and the applications for which each is best suited.

NOTE: The amount and type of soilage play an important role in determining the type of brush or pad to use. Contact a Tennant representative for specific recommendations.

Soft nylon bristle scrub brush (White) -

Recommended for cleaning coated floors without removing finish. Cleans without scuffing.

Polypropylene bristle scrub brush (Black) -

This general purpose polypropylene bristle scrub brush is used for scrubbing lightly compacted soilage. This brush works well for maintaining concrete, wood and grouted tile floors.

Super abrasive bristle scrub brush (Gray) -

Nylon fiber impregnated with abrasive grit to remove stains and soilage. Strong action on any surface.

Performs well on buildup, grease, or tire marks.

Polishing pad (White) -

Used to maintain highly polished or burnished floors.

Buffing pad (Red) - Used for light duty scrubbing without removing floor finish.

Scrubbing pad (Blue) - Used for medium to heavy-duty scrubbing. Removes dirt, spills, and scuffs and leaves surface clean ready for recoating.

Stripping pad (Brown) - Used for stripping of floor finish to prepare the floor for recoating.

Heavy duty stripping pad (Black) - Used for aggressive stripping of heavy finishes/sealers, or very heavy duty scrubbing.

Surface preparation pad (Maroon) - Used for very aggressive chemical free removal of floor finish to prepare the floor for re-coating

The lifetime of the batteries depends on their proper maintenance. To get the most life from the batteries;

S

Do not charge the batteries more than once a day and only after running the machine for a minimum of

15 minutes.

S

Do not leave the batteries partially discharged for long period of time.

S

Only charge the batteries in a well-ventilated area to prevent gas build up. Charge batteries in areas with ambient temperatures 27_C or less.

S

Allow the charger to complete charging the batteries before re-using the machine.

S

Maintain the proper electrolyte levels of flooded (wet) batteries by checking levels weekly.

Your machine is equipped with either flooded (wet) lead-acid or maintenance-free batteries supplied by

Tennant.

FOR SAFETY: When servicing machine, keep all metal objects off batteries. Avoid contact with battery acid.

MAINTENANCE-FREE BATTERIES

Maintenance-free (Sealed AGM) batteries do not require watering. Cleaning and other routine maintenance is still required.

FLOODED (WET) LEAD-ACID BATTERIES

The flooded (wet) lead-acid batteries require routine watering as described below. Check the battery electrolyte level weekly.

The electrolyte level should be slightly above the battery plates as shown before charging (Figure 108).

Add distilled water if low. DO NOT OVERFILL. The electrolyte will expand and may overflow when charging. After charging, distilled water can be added up to about 3 mm below the sight tubes.

ATTENTION: The following instructions are intended for supervisor use only. Remove pages from manual if necessary.

SUPERVISOR CONTROLS

The supervisor controls feature allows a supervisor to program the machine’s scrubbing settings for operator use. The lockout functionality will prevent the operator from changing or saving the Zone Settings.

The supervisor controls feature will lower machine variability for consistent, repeatable cleaning results, machine quality assurance regardless of user experience, and reduce user training requirements.

NOTE: The T300e model is not equipped with the supervisor controls feature.

T300 MODEL WITH MEMBRANE CONTROL PANEL

The machine has three supervisor control modes of operation to choose from:

Unlocked Mode 1: Operator has full control of all scrubbing parameters with the ability to save Zone

Settings. The Unlocked Mode 1 is the factory default setting.

Lockout Mode 2: Zone Settings are configured and locked by supervisor. Operator has control to reconfigure the zone settings, but are not able to save them.

Lockout Mode 3: Zone Settings are configured and locked by supervisor. Operator is restricted to only use the Zone Settings configured by supervisor.

To enter the supervisor controls mode follow the instructions below:

1. Park the machine on a level surface and turn the key to off ( O ) position.

2. Press and hold the Down Pressure button while turning the key on. Release button when the far right battery discharge indicator LED turns on

(Figure 132).

SUPERVISOR CONTROLS

Hold down the Zone Setting button until it blinks three times to save the preferred supervisor control mode (Figure 133). In this example, Lockout mode

3 was selected.

4. If Lockout mode 2 or 3 was selected, press the

Solution Flow button. This will allow you to configure the Zone Settings for the selected supervisor control mode (Figure 134).

FIG. 134

5. Configure the following Zone Settings for zone 1.

After the Zone Settings are configured, press and hold the zone button until it blinks three times to save Zone Setting. Repeat process for other zones.

Zone Settings:

- Down pressure rate

- Solution flow rate

- Quiet-Mode on or off (option)

- ec-H2O mode on or off (option)

- Maximum scrubbing speed (drive model)

To adjust the maximum scrub speed, press the circled button to cycle through the five speed selections as described below (Figure 135).

The speed selection is displayed by the battery discharge indicator LED’s. The red LED represents the lowest speed. The far right green LED represents the highest speed (Figure 135).

SUPERVISOR CONTROLS

T300 MODEL WITH PRO-PANEL CONTROLS

There are two types of user modes that will interface with the operator home screen:

Operator Mode - Capable of machine operation with permissions and restrictions controlled by the supervisor.

Supervisor Mode - Capable of machine operation with full use of all controls, along with configuring permissions and restrictions for the operator mode.

A new machine from the factory will automatically start up in the supervisor mode with a preassigned default supervisor profile. The machine’s factory-assigned supervisor login number is “1234”. This login number is not required until it’s enabled. The default supervisor profile name and login number can be changed as described in this section. If the new assigned supervisor mode login number is forgotten, use the recovery login code 836626826.

To enter the supervisor controls follow the instructions below:

1. Park the machine on a level surface and turn the key to the on ( I ) position. The home screen will display at start up (Figure 136). This is the factory default screen at start up.

NOTE: If a login screen appears at start up. Enter the factory-assigned supervisor login number or your saved personalized supervisor login number to access the operator home screen.
