General description
This machine is a scrubber drier for sweeping, washing and drying flat, horizontal, smooth or moderately rough, even and obstacle
free floors in civil and industrial premises.
The scrubber drier spreads a solution of water and detergent in the correct concentration on the floor and then scrubs it to remove
the dirt. By carefully choosing the detergent and brushes (or abrasive disks) from the wide range of accessories available, the
machine can be adapted to a wide range of combinations of types of floor and dirt.
A suction system incorporated in the machine dries the floor after washing by means of the low pressure generated in the dirty
water tank by the suction motor. The squeegee connected to the tank collects the dirty water.

Batteries: Preparation
DANGER:
During battery installation and any type of battery maintenance, the operator must be provided with the necessary
personal protection devices (gloves, goggles overalls, etc.) to limit the risk of injury. Keep clear of naked flames, avoid
short circuiting the battery poles, avoid sparks and do not smoke.
Batteries are normally supplied filled with acid and ready for use. If the batteries are dry, proceed as follows before installing them
in the machine.Remove the caps and fill all elements with sulphuric acid solution specific for batteries until the plates are entirely
covered (this requires at least a couple of passes for each element). Leave the batteries stand for 4-5 hours to allow air bubbles to
come to the surface and the plates to absorb the electrolyte.
Make sure the level of electrolyte is still above the plates and if necessary top up with sulphuric acid solution. Close the caps.
Install the batteries in the machine (following the procedure described below). Charge the batteries before starting up the machine
for the first time. Follow the instructions in the “Battery maintenance and charging” section.
Batteries: installation and connection
DANGER:
Check that all switches on the control panel are in the “0” (off) position. Make sure you connect the terminals
marked with a “+” to the positive poles of the battery.Do not check the battery charge by sparking. Meticulously
follow the instructions given below as short circuiting the batteries could cause them to explode.
Place the batteries in the battery compartment, orienting them as shown in the drawings (figs. 2 and 3). On machines fitted with
two batteries, place the polystyrene spacers supplied between the compartment and the batteries, see the drawing (fig. 3) Referring
to the cable layout shown in the above diagram, connect the battery cables and bridge terminals to the battery poles. Arrange the
cables as shown in the diagram, tighten the terminals on the poles and coat with Vaseline. Lower the tank into the working position.
When using the machine, follow the instructions below.
WARNING:
Never allow the batteries to become excessively flat as this could damage them irreparably.
Batteries: removal
DANGER:
When removing the batteries, the operator must be equipped with suitable personal protection devices (gloves,
goggles, overalls, safety shoes, etc.) to reduce the risk of injury. Make sure the switches on the control panel ar
in the “0” position (off) and the machine is turned off. Keep away from naked flames, do not short circuit the

Disconnect the battery cables and bridge terminals from the battery poles.
If necessary, remove the devices fixing the battery to the base of the machine.
Lift the batteries from the compartment using suitable lifting equipment.
Choosing a battery charger
DANGER:
Use CE-marked battery chargers that comply with the relevant product standards (EN60335-2-29), featuring double or
reinforced insulation between input and output, and a SELV output circuit.
ENGLISH
Make sure the battery charger is compatible with the batteries to be charged. Tubular lead batteries: an automatic charger is
recommended. Consult the battery charger manufacturer and manual to confirm the choice. Gel batteries: use a charger specific
for this type of battery.
Preparing the battery charger
If you wish to use a battery charger not provided with the machine, you must fit it with the connector supplied with the machine.
The connector supplied for the external battery charger is suitable for cables with a minimum crosssection of 16 mm2. Proceed as
follows to fit the connector: Remove about 13 mm of protective sheath from the red and black cables of the battery charger. Insert
the wires into the connector contacts and squeeze them forcefully with suitable pliers. Respect the polarity (red wire + black wire –)
when inserting the wires into the connector.
Squeegee Installation and Adjustments
Switch the machine on, lower the squeegee by pressing the suction motor button. Place the squeegee in the slots
provided on the support (fig. 4), then tighten the fastening knobs and insert the suction hose.
Squeegee adjustment
The squeegee blades scrape the film of water and detergent from the floor and prepare the way for perfect drying. With time, the
constant rubbing makes the edge of the blade in contact with the floor rounded and cracked, reducing the drying efficiency and
requiring it to be replaced. The state of wear should be checked frequently.
For perfect drying, the squeegee must be adjusted in such a way that the edge of the rear blade bends during operation by about
45° with respect to the floor at every point. The angle of the blades can be adjusted using the screw (fig. 5, ref. 1), while the height
of the squeegee from the floor can be adjusted by changing the height of the two wheels (fig. 6).
