New Tennant S10 Battery Powered Walk-Behind Sweeper

Press release date: Oct 15, 2007

Offers Reliable Industrial-Strength Performance Even in Tight Spaces

MINNEAPOLIS-(October 15, 2007)-Tennant Company (NYSE: TNC), a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing solutions that create a cleaner, safer world, today introduces its S10 Battery-Powered Industrial Walk-Behind Sweeper. The S10 meets a long-standing need in the industrial marketplace for a small, maneuverable yet durable sweeper that stands up to even the harshest of environments.

"Tennant is known for building reliable and durable industrial rider machines that offer superior cleaning performance. The S10 is built on that heritage but comes in a smaller, more maneuverable package to meet the cleaning needs-whether in tight areas or moderate-sized open areas-that arise in any number of heavy and light industrial facilities, including large industrial manufacturing plants, distribution warehouses, automotive service centers, and more," said Michael Larsen, product manager with Tennant Company.

The S10 includes a number of industry-leading innovations and attributes that provide specific customer benefits, such as: o superior sweeping performance with a 34-inch cleaning path and direct throw technology to remove heavy dust, sand, and light debris; o robust construction inside and out-including an automatic filter shaker, a wrap-around bumper with rounded corners, sealed bearings, and an all-steel frame, hopper and bumper-that extend the life of the machine to help reduce the total cost of ownership; o the largest hopper capacity of any industrial walk-behind scrubber-2.8 cubic feet-to improve productivity; o battery-powered, quiet, fume-free operation to improve indoor air quality and allow for anytime cleaning; o superior dust filtration that filters dust to three microns and an automatic timed filter shaker that keeps the filter clean to improve indoor air quality; and o an ergonomic adjustable handle to improve operator comfort.

"There has long been a need in both heavy and light industrial facilities for a durable industrial-strength sweeper that can clean both tight and open spaces," said Larsen. "Only the S10 fills that need while also improving safety, productivity, and the bottom line."
