The Nilco SE 1237 is a bigger seller than the SE 1227 partly because of it's extra capacity (which is 13 litres clean and 12 litres dirty), but also because of it's powerful 1000 watt suction motor. The extra capacity means that this carpet shampooer will spend less time being emptied and more time doing the cleaning instead. The Nilco SE 1237 Carpet Cleaner has a wide cleaning path of 30 cms but it may be worth considering the SE 1437 Carpet Cleaner which can clean a 46cm wide path if you frequently have to clean much larger areas. Optional accessories include a special brush for scrubbing hard floors and an upholstery kit. Instructions for use are printed on the side of the Nilco SE 1237 Carpet Cleaning machine for those that don't want to bother with the manual and want to get straight on with the cleaning!
The Nilco SE1237 has attachments to clean hard floors, difficult floors and upholstery too. Therefore you can use one machine to improve the cleaning efficiency in multiple areas of your establishment.
Although the use of a recognised Defoamer product is mentioned in all the service manuals issued with new machines the End User will hardly ever read this part and therefore will not use the product.
The emphasis placed on a recognised Defoamer product cannot be stressed enough.
Use of Defoamer in the recovery tank of a machine will, in most cases prevent excess water damage to vacuum motors due to dirty water ingestion. This is caused by the fact that foam is lighter than water and will not close the vacuum shut off ball cage assembly. This, in turn will lead to the foam being ingested into the vacuum motors.
In addition to this, it is also important to your keep clean water reservoir separate from waste water and to this end we also recommend the use of different coloured buckets such as the red and white Prochem CN3503 buckets shown at the bottom of the page, the red being used solely for waste water and the white just for clean.
Any vacuum motor returned for repair or warranty claim that shows any sign of dirty water ingestion will not be replaced since the Terms & Conditions of Warranty have not been adhered to.
