SUPERWINCH® – PUTNAM, CONN.
Superwinch designs and manufactures a broad range of winches, and the company’s 1,000 lb to 5,000 lb (454 kg-2,268 kg) capacity winches are found in diverse industries and applications worldwide. Superwinch combines first class design, quality, value and solid construction for safe, simple and reliable operation.
Superwinch needed a reliable, highly manoeuvrable scrubber-dryer that could easily navigate 7′ 3″ (221 cm)-wide warehouse aisles. Their previous scrubber left wet, slippery floors in its path, was difficult to maintain, and had to be backed out when pallets blocked the aisles.
The Tennant T16 battery-powered compact ride-on scrubber-dryer was selected because it works great in tight spaces, and is equipped with Tennant’s exclusive ec-H2O™ cleaning technology, the T16 scrubber-dryer cleans by electrically converting water into an innovative cleaning solution. This solution cleans effectively, saves money, improves safety, and reduces environmental impact compared to daily cleaning floor chemicals and methods.
"The T16 scrubber-dryer’s small turning radius is a godsend. Now, instead of backing out if an aisle is blocked by a pallet, I can spin right round," said Maintenance Manager Roman Giebultowski. Also, the Superwinch facility is ISO 14001-certified, so whatever scrubber-dryer they chose had to be environmentally safe. "And by not using three gallons of chemicals to clean the floors each week, we save approximately $2,000 to $3,000 a year."
PERFORMS GREAT, EASY TO MAINTAIN
He appreciates that the floor is dry and ready for employees to walk on as soon as it’s been cleaned. Giebultowski also likes the T16 scrubber-dryer’s easy-to-identify maintenance touch points. Servicing the T16 is easy, and replacing worn brushes or squeegee blades takes just a few minutes.
All the other scrubbers Giebultowski considered used cleaning chemicals, which would have required a discharge permit from the US Environmental Protection Agency. Or he could have pumped the chemical discharge into a tank and paid $1 per gallon, or $70 to $80 a week, to have it removed. The T16 with ec-H2O technology does not use any chemicals to clean, so Superwinch is able to save money while also reducing environmental impact.
"I love the T16 with ec-H2O," said Giebultowski. "The floors are clean and we don’t use any chemicals to clean them. It’s great."
