Product Description

The Tornado 'BD 17/6' Auto Scrubber comes with a 17 inch brush and is powered by a 24V battery, giving this machine the versatility and maneuverability that you want in an auto scrubber. It works great on small-to-medium sized spaces and can fit into hard-to-clean areas where the traditional mop and bucket are usually used. An integrated parabolic squeegee system hugs the pad and immediately sucks up the solution into the 6 gallon recovering tank. This squeegee assembly is also designed to rotate left and right 180 degrees to allow for recovery in all directions.

To add to the BD 17/6’s efficiency, maintenance-free batteries provide convenient long run-times. Not only that, but now you don’t have to plug and unplug your machines, saving you the and time hassling around with the cord. It also eliminates the danger of trips and falls due to that cord. The ergonomic handle is adjustable and can be moved to the user’s height to stop operator fatigue and injuries. The brush deck and squeegee can be tilted up to swap out the brush. The tanks and batteries can also be accessed just by removing the recovery tanks. The included brush can be used for everyday scrubbing, but to add versatility to your machine, you may want to pickup a pad driver and a few 17" scrubbing and stripping pads.

Larger units, as well as cylindrical and other rotary scrubbers, can be found within our full line of Tornado® auto scrubbers if you really like the features of the Tornado brand.
