Original Press Release:

New Line of World-Class Automatic Scrubbers Introduced

Chicago, IL-February 18, 2008-Tornado® introduces a new family of high-performance, world-class automatic floor scrubbers.

The family of machines includes both walk-behinds as well as ride-ons. Additionally, the machines are available in standard rotary disk format as well as cylindrical brush, a newer technology that uses counter-rotating brushes instead of pads.

The machines have cleaning paths that range from 18- to 33-inches with 11 to 30 gallon tanks. Designed and engineered for every user, the machines are made of rotomold polyethylene and were put through a battery of field tests before introduction-assuring their durability, performance, ergonomics, and ease of use.

"We also put a great deal of emphasis on environmental issues," says Jolynn Kennedy, marketing manager for Tornado. "For example, with the cylindrical models, which uses brushes instead of pads, the brushes last up to 100 times longer, helping to protect natural resources and reduce environmental waste."

Users also appreciate that they have 4 to 6 times the floor contact pressure of conventional rotary floor machines. Another popular feature is the machines' square base design, which allows for enhanced edge cleaning.

Kennedy adds that the machines were designed with patented soundproofing systems. "The sound of the machines has been rated at just 67 decibels, about the sound of soft conversation," she says.

The machines were on display at the recent ISSA/INTERCLEAN(TM) tradeshow in Orlando and have now been shipped to Tornado distributors throughout the country.
