Plymouth, MN—May 15, 2013—Clarke announces the new Vantage 17 compact autoscrubber® for small-area cleaning applications. With a highly maneuverable design and wide 17-inch scrub path, the Vantage 17 provides a reliable, cost-efficient cleaning alternative to labor-intensive mops and buckets and high-priced, large automatic scrubbers.
The Vantage 17 maximizes cleaning productivity with a unique center-pivot squeegee system. Employing a gas spring for optimal blade pressure, the squeegee system can effectively pick up solution in both forward and reverse in just one pass—leaving the floors clean, dry and ready for foot traffic faster than alternative solutions. Equipped with a large 8.2-gallon solution tank and 7.7-gallon recovery tank, the Vantage 17 can operate for up to two hours on a single tank.
“The Vantage 17 combines ease-of-use with one-touch controls and enhanced productivity to deliver the highest scrubbing performance for small-area cleaning applications,” said Brian Dodd, Product Manger, Nilfisk-Advance. “In place of costly, labor-intensive procedures, the Vantage 17 provides a quality cleaning solution that maximizes our customers’ bottom line.”
To satisfy green cleaning initiatives, the Vantage 17 operates at a low sound level of only 67 dB A to meet LEED-EB and GS-42 noise standards. This also enables daytime cleaning or cleaning of noise-sensitive areas. For enhanced sustainability, the Vantage 17 is available with maintenance-free gel batteries and an onboard charger to eliminate spills and noxious gas emissions associated with wet-acid batteries.
The Vantage 17 is ideal for a wide range of applications, including but not limited to schools and universities, hospitals and healthcare facilities, grocery, retail outlets, convenience stores and restaurants.
