The objective of this manual is to ensure that the machine is operated correctly and performs the service which we offer to our
customers. Therefore, we advise you to follow the instructions it contains scrupulously since the manufacturer accepts no
responsibility for damage to persons, or things, or damage to the machine if the machine is not operated the way described in this
manual or if the maintenance and safety instructions are not fully complied with.
The indications provided in this manual do not replace the safety instructions and technical data for installation
and operation directly applied on the product, nor do they replace the safety standards current in the country of installation
and the rules dictated by normal common sense.
The operator or maintenance worker must advise a person in authority of any faults or deterioration which could
affect the original safety of the machine.

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.
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 10 gallons (38 liters). Always use the products and the dilution quantities recommended by the seller. Never use foamy
detergents. Use defoamer if excess foam develops.
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 pressing pedal M3. 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.
Battery installation and charging: The batteries are supplied separately and must be inserted in the special compartment provided under the lid. Apply a layer of vaseline to the
terminals and connect in series as shown on page 11. Make
sure that the terminals are correctly tightened. The battery
charger must be installed in the place set aside for charging the
machine. The charger is provided with a cable for connection
to the mains, normally 120v/60HZ. Check that the voltage corresponds to the voltage indicated on the battery charger.
To charge the batteries, connect the connector of the machine
batteries M5 to the connector of the battery charger. The
battery charger will automatically regulate the voltage to the
batteries and will switch itself off when the batteries have been
fully charged.
CAUTION: A) Make sure key switch is turned “OFF” and battery
connector is unplugged from machine before performing any
maintenance procedures. B) Battery acid can cause burns. When
working on or around batteries, wear protective clothing and safety
glasses. Remove metal jewelry. Do not lay tools or metal objects on
top of batteries. C) Charging batteries generate explosive gases.

The area to be scrubbed: Debris and grit must be swept up
before starting the scrubbing operation to avoid vacuum line
blockage and to permit the detergent to perform efficiently.
Brush/pad install: The PAS20BA features hands free brush
installation.
To install a brush on the PAS20BA, simply leave the brush on
the floor under the front of the machine.
• Turn the switch M7 and the handle M10.
• Release the pedal M9.
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.
If the brush does not hook up immediately, make small side
movements with the auto scrubber until the brush is installed.
Starting up and operation: Disconnect the batteries from the
battery charger and connect to the machine.
Then:
• Turn master switch M6 to position 1 and press
switches M7 and M8.
• Lower the brush by pressing pedal M9.
• Lower the squeegee by pressing pedal M3.
• Set the detergent solution supply to minimum by
adjusting knob M12.
• Finally, adjust the correct supply of the detergent
as a function of the amount of dirt and speed of
advance by means of lever M12
To replace a worn brush or pad:
• With the machine on and the brush in the upper
position, press the pedal M9 to lift the brush.
• Release the handle M10 and the brush will release
and drop to the floor.
The machine is supplied with a pad driver. Brushes in carbide
grit, 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.

CAUTION! Make sure all caution, warning and
instructional decals are in place and legible.
Replace damaged or missing labels.
This auto scrubber has been designed to the strictest safety standards but the user must still use the machine with
care and caution.
Here are a few rules which must be respected:
• Never leave the machine unattended, particularly when
there are children around
• Always switch off the machine when filling the solution
tank
• Never attempt to make emergency repairs or use
non-original spare parts.
• Check the wear and deterioration of the materials at
intervals and ask the sales representative for assistance.
• Do not smoke or expose open flames or sparks in the
vicinity of the batteries (portable grinders, welders, etc.)
• Do not take current from the batteries using ad hoc clips
or other forms of temporary connections.
• Do not rest metal tools or instruments on the batteries
because the electrolyte liquid is corrosive.
Squeegee: Every week, check the blades of the squeegee and
wash them carefully. Then adjust them in the correct working
position (see above). If drying is not perfect even after the unit
has been cleaned, replace any blades which are excessively worn.
Tighten fasteners from the center to the outside only. If the
squeegee does not pick up enough water or streaks, lift and wipe
off the blades.
Water collection tank: This tank should be cleaned every week.
Lift the lid and remove the funnel M1 of the solution tank.
Remove the strap M5 and lift the vacuum motor out of its seat.
Remove filter M14 and float cage from motor and thoroughly
clean with water 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. Place float cage back with open side facing
front of machine.
Batteries: Check the level of the electrolyte liquid by carefully
removing plugs from top of battery and top off with distilled water,
when the level drops below the plates of the battery. Keep the batteries clean and dry with antistatic cloths. When charging the batteries, remove the plugs of the batteries and lift the top flap of the
machine to allow the gas which is generated to escape. This gas
can cause explosions in closed environments and, therefore, it is advisable to carry out battery charging in well-ventilated
environments.
WARNING! Do not operate machine or charger in
areas where flammable liquids or gases are
present. Do not use or pick up flammable chemicals or liquids with this machine.
