On consignment of the machine
Serial number plate
When the machine is delivered to the customer, an immediate check
must be performed to ensure all the material mentioned in the shipping
documents has been received, in addition to verifying that the machine
has not been damaged during transportation. If this is the case, the
carrier must ascertain the extent of the damage at once, informing our
customer service office. It is only by prompt action of this type that the
missing material can be obtained, and compensation for damage
successfully claimed.
Introductory comment
SMG is a floor scrubbing machine which, by means of 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 any
removed dirt as well as the detergent solution not absorbed by the floor.
The machine must only be used 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 customer assistance service (organised in
collaboration with our dealers) is always available for advice or direct
intervention.
Intended use
The scrubbing machine is exclusively designed 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 for picking up dangerous dusts or
inflammable liquids within places with a potentially explosive atmosphere.
In addition, it is not suitable as a means of transport for people or objects.

may not function properly (i.e. they may not conduct water to the squeegee correctly). The height of the
splash guard rubbers must therefore be adjusted. This operation can be done with the brush head body in
the work position, proceeding as follows:
1. Check that the parking brake is engaged, and if not, engage it
2. Check that the electrical system connector is disconnected from the battery connector, and if not,
disconnect it
3. Check the main switch is on “0” (turn it to this position if necessary)
4. Turn the knobs (1) on the brush head body in a clockwise or anticlockwise direction
ATTENTION: When the knobs (1) are rotated in a clockwise direction, the side
splash guards move away from the floor, while if the knobs (1) are rotated in a
anticlockwise direction, the side splash guards move towards the floor.

During working operation, the side splash guard rubber is slightly tilted outwards (by about 5mm) in a
uniform way for its whole length.
48. CLEANING THE DETERGENT SOLUTION SUPPLY PIPE
If the detergent solution supply pipe on the brush head unit is obstructed by dirt, it will not distribute the
detergent solution uniformly on the floor. This will prevent the machine from functioning properly. To clean
the basin proceed as follows:
1. Check that the brush head body is in the work position, otherwise turn the I-DRIVE selector to the
"Scrubbing" position so that the brush head lowers
2. Ensure that the electrical system connector is disconnected from the battery connector
3. Make sure that the main switch is in the "0" position, if not turn the key a quarter turn to the left
4. Check that the parking brake is engaged, otherwise engage it using the pedal (1)

Check the squeegee is clean
Check the squeegee settings (see “MACHINE PREPARATION”)
Clean the entire vacuum unit (see “WEEKLY MAINTENANCE”)
Replace the rubbers, if worn
52. THE MACHINE DOES NOT CLEAN WELL
1. Check the state of wear and tear of the brushes and, if necessary, replace them. The brushes should
be changed when the bristles are about 15mm long. To replace them, see “REPLACING THE
BRUSHES”, or “DISASSEMBLING THE BRUSHES” and “ASSEMBLING THE BRUSHES”. Working
with over-worn brushes may cause damage to the floor.
2. Use a different kind of brush to the one fitted as standard. For cleaning floors where the dirt is
particularly resistant, we recommend the use of special brushes supplied upon request and according
to needs (see “CHOOSING AND USING THE BRUSHES”).
53. EXCESSIVE FOAM PRODUCTION
Check that a low foam detergent has been used. If necessary, add a small quantity of antifoam liquid to the
recovery tank.
Remember that, when the floor is not very dirty, more foam is generated. In this case the detergent solution
should be more diluted.
54. THE VACUUM CLEANER DOES NOT FUNCTION
1. Check whether the recovery tank is full and, if necessary, empty it
2. Check the float on the vacuum cap (see also “CLEANING THE RECOVERY TANK” in the paragraph
“DAILY MAINTENANCE”)
55. THE BRUSH MOTOR DOES NOT WORK
ATTENTION To avoid damaging the floor, the motor only starts up when the machine is moved forwards

TROUBLESHOOTING
56. ELECTRIC FUSES AND THERMAL CUT-OUTS
The machine is fitted with the following electrical protection systems:
Power fuses arranged in the electrical box, to protect against short-circuiting.
thermal trip units arranged on the outside of the handlebars, to protect the following motors:
1. 25 A trip unit for left vacuum motor
2. 25 A trip unit for right vacuum motor
In the event of malfunctioning, check a thermal cut-out has not intervened. If the motor overheats, its
thermal cut-out intervenes to block the electricity supply. Wait a few minutes until it has cooled down, then
press the specific trip unit button to reactivate the power supply and motor operation. If the problem
persists, contact the specialist technical assistance centre.
57. THE AUTOMATIC WATER/DETERGENT DOSING SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK
The automatic water/detergent dosing system has been designed with criteria of extreme sturdiness and
reliability, but there is a special by-pass system that allows you to use the machine even if the system is
out-of-use.
To by-pass the automatic water/detergent dosing system, you must rotate the tap lever (1) on the front of the
machine in an anti-clockwise direction; in this way you can go on working even with the system out-of-use.
Remember, however, to put not only water in the solution tank, but the right quantities of both water and
detergent. With the dosing system out-of-use, the water flow is regulated via the tap on the steering column.
Contact an Authorised FIMAP Retailer to have the system repaired.

58. ALARMS
The machine is fitted with a flashing warning light (1) for diagnosing faults in the traction motor control
system. Each sequence (number of consecutive flashes) indicates a particular type of fault. When flashing
begins (with an accompanying working fault), you should contact the technical assistance centre,
specifying the number of flashes.

CHOOSING AND USING THE BRUSHES
POLYPROPYLENE BRUSH (PPL)
Used on all types of floor, it has good resistance to wear and tear and hot water (no greater than 60°C). PPL is non-hygroscopic and therefore retains its
characteristics even when working in wet conditions.
NYLON BRUSH
Used on all types of floors. Excellent resistance to wear and tear, and hot water (even over 60°C). The nylon is hygroscopic and so tends to lose its
characteristics over time when working in wet conditions.
ABRASIVE BRUSH
The bristles of this type of brush are charged with highly aggressive abrasives. It is used to clean very dirty floors. To avoid floor damage, work only with the
pressure strictly necessary.
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, also
because, like with over-large bristles, the brush tends to jump.
PAD HOLDER
The pad holder is recommended for cleaning shiny surfaces.
There are two types of pad holder:
1. 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.
2. The CENTER 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 holder is especially suitable for machines with several
brushes, where the centring of the abrasive floor pads is difficult.
