Numatic TT4045 Scrubber Dryer
The Numatic TT4045 is one of the most popular scrubber dryer machines we sell and is arguably one of the most popular in the country. This machine is ideal for cleaning medium to large hard floor areas, most commonly purchased by schools, village halls, leisure centres and hospitals, anywhere with large halls or long corridors this machine is very well suited. It has a huge 20 meter power cable which is more than enough to allow you to clean these types of area. If you do not have access to regular plug sockets you can use this machine with an extension lead however we would recommend looking at the battery version of this machine which is called the TTB4045.
The TT4045 sits in the middle of Numatic’s Twintec range, boasting fantastic performance and results on a variety of hard floors. A sizable 40 litre capacity for clean water, and 40 litre tank for dirty water mean that you can clean a large area without having to fill or empty your tanks as often as you might with a smaller machine.
Despite the large capacity and 45cm cleaning width this is still a relatively compact machine standing 110cm high, 106.5cm long and if you include the squeegee blade at the back is 80.5cm wide. There are smaller machines in the range however for medium to large areas they would be inefficient having to change the water more often. There are also larger machines which obviously will service a larger area more easily however storage of the machine can them become an issue. We find that the TT4045 is the machine that best fits most environments.
You can use the Numatic TT4045 with a brush or a pad. It comes as standard with the Numatic medium duty scrubbing brush, this is perfectly adequate for most floor types, it is not aggressive and wont damage the floor. A more aggressive brush or pad may be proffered for floor types such as unsealed concrete or areas with heavy soillage to get the optimum out of the clean.
These machines are often used with a pad especially when cleaning indoor spaces where you want to use a scrubber dryer chemical with polish or maintainer in it. It is very easy to convert to using a pad, all you need is a base plate and a set of pads.
The TT4045 is incredibly easy to use, often people are concerned that it will be hard to move around, the reality is quite the contrary. This scrubber dryer does not have self-drive where by the machine pulls its self along, what it does have is a very clever balance setup so that when the brush at the front of the machine is turning it almost feels like it is floating allowing anyone to push the machine along with ease.
This scrubber dryer can be used on all hard floor types just be aware that wooden floors can be damaged if you clean them with water, if they are sealed and polished this will not be a problem.
The benefit of using a scrubber dryer on wood is that the water is on the floor for a very short period of time and dries it very quickly making this a safer method then wet moping. The other method would be to use a rotary machine which would use no water and may be preferable for polished high shine floors.
What is a Scrubber Dryer?
A scrubber dryer is a much more effective and efficient way to clean hard floors when compared to more traditional methods like wet moping and flat moping.
The machine quite simply puts a water and chemical mixture on to the floor (as you would with a mop and bucket), it will then use a pad or a brush to scrub the floor, braking up the dirt and mixing it in with the water.
As you move forward with the machine the squeegee blade located at the rear collects the dirty water allowing the vacuum to suck up and deposit into the dirty water tank leaving you with a clean floor.
Most scrubber dryers will leave the floor slightly damp however this will be dry within a matter of minutes, a mop and bucket will take far longer than this. Scrubber dryers are significantly quicker than moping, this will therefore save you time and money. They also benefit from giving you a much higher level of clean. With a mop and bucket as your water begins to get dirty you are affectively just moving the dirt around the floor, a scrubber dryer will only be putt clean water down and picking up the dirty through a separate system so the two never mix.
