The CleanFreak Reliable 18E is an electric powered automatic floor scrubber, that comes with a single 18 inch nylon scrub brush. This unit is absolutely perfect for everyday scrubbing on tiled floors. You never have to worry about recharging this machine between scrubbings because all you have to do is plug it into a 110 volt electric outlet, fill with solution, and scrub!
The brush and pad driver are of the "Hands-Free" design, so the operator never has to touch the brush. Simply lay the brush/pad driver on the floor, maneuver the machine over it, and engage the brush drive apparatus. To remove, simply raise the scrub head, and spin the driver once to remove from the brush head. When it's time to transport this machine, simply detach the brush or pad driver and attach it to the side of the machine. You won't find another machine that is as dependable and feature-packed as this one is within this price range. You simply can't get a bigger bang for your buck!
Used to clean a hard semi rough surface. Does very good at cleaning and picking up dirt from the floors pits and rough surface.
Use this for convenience stores.
I use this in convenience stores and its great. You have to be mindful of the cord, but as far as getting into small spaces goes, its great.
Great compact scrubber.
This is great for smaller areas - you need access to outlets, but turns in tight spaces & is easy to manage.
Waste of money
I use the reliable 18e for scrubning hard floor surfaces. The design is great for size but mechanically it was very disappointing. The brush motor stopped operating immediately just after 90 days. I literally had the unit 4 months and had used it on about 4 jobs totaling about 6,000 sqft. I was basically told that I could not get any help other than than the info for a repair location. The location given was 2-3 hrs away. As a small business owner it is important that I have quality low maintenance equipment to provide the service my customrrs expect. Again, I am disappointed in the not only the equipment warranty, but also the workmanship of machine parts.
