Available in South Africa from October 2022, the Hako Scrubmaster B400 RH vacuum sweeper and scrubber-drier combi machine is set to deliver new levels of cleaning efficiency and economy in large industrial buildings and exhibition halls, or in airports and indoor parking facilities.

The biggest in its class, the 3-disc-brush Scrubmaster B400 RH has a scrubbing width of 155 cm. It offers a high area performance of up to 14 000m2/h and 400 litres tank capacity, and provides up to six hours of uninterrupted cleaning.

Cleaning efficiency is further enhanced by hydraulic operation of the 150-litre dirt hopper, which enables the automated dumping of dirt into waste containers at heights of up to 165 cm (called “high dump”). The dumping and disposal process has two clear advantages. It saves time, and the machine operator does not come into contact with the collected dirt.

The Scrubmaster B400 RH features Hako’s innovative side broom jacket DustStop. In combination with the machine’s dust suction system, DustStop ensures low-dust sweeping and reduces dust and fine particulate pollution in the working environment.

Optional extras include safety features such as an overhead guard, driver assistance systems, an on-board high-pressure cleaner for cleaning in the smallest of corners, an on-board dosing system, and X-AC front and rear drive for improved traction against inclines.

The B400 RH is a compact, manoeuvrable machine, and the ergonomic, back-friendly operator environment and intuitive operation guarantee hours of fatigue-free working.

At the other end of the scale, Hako dealer BHBW is simultaneously launching the smallest Hako scrubber-drier yet into the local market. Ideal for cleaning confined areas, the Scrubmaster B8 walk-behind is extremely manoeuvrable thanks to its ultra-compact dimensions and foldable handle bar. Fitted with squeegee brushes at both the back and the front, it cleans in both forward and reverse mode. The Scrubmaster B8 is powered by a lithium-ion battery which delivers up to two hours of operation. An additional battery pack is available.

To ensure maximum availability and minimum downtime of these and other Hako machines, BHBW has an extensive service infrastructure in place, which includes a 24/7 call centre, trained technicians countrywide, and high levels of parts availability.

Both machines can be seen at Cleantex Africa 2022 at the Gallagher Convention Centre from 12 to 14 October 2022.
