number plate.
TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
The FIMOP is a scrubbing machine that cleans a wide range of
flooring and dirt types by means of the mechanical action of the
discoidal brush and the chemical action of a water-detergent
solution. As it advances, it collects the dirt that has been removed
and the detergent solution that has not been absorbed by the floor.
The appliance must only be used for this purpose.
INTENDED USE
This scrubbing machine was designed and built for the cleaning
(scrubbing and drying) of smooth, compact flooring in the commercial,
residential and industrial sectors by a qualified operator in proven
safety conditions. The scrubbing machine is not suitable for cleaning
rugs or carpets. The appliance is only suitable for use in indoor - or at
least covered - areas.
ATTENTION: The appliance is not suitable for use in the rain,
or under jets of water.
IT IS FORBIDDEN to use the appliance for picking up dangerous
dusts or inflammable liquids in places with an explosive atmosphere. In
addition, it is not suitable as a means of transport for people or objects.
SAFETY
Operator cooperation is paramount for accident prevention. No
accident prevention programme can be effective without the full
co-operation of the operator who is directly responsible for machine
operation. The majority of occupational accidents that happen both
in the workplace or whilst moving are caused by failure to respect
the most basic safety rules. An attentive, careful operator is most
effective guarantee against accidents and is fundamental in order to
implement any prevention programme.
SERIAL NUMBER PLATE
The serial number plate is located inside the device on the underside
of the front housing, indicating its general characteristics (in
particular, the serial number). The serial number is a very important
piece of information and should always be provided together with any
request for assistance or when purchasing spare parts.
