tennant barbera launches new floor scrubbers, t290, t390 and t581

Cleaning has never been more important, and Tennant is making it easier than ever. Three new mechanized floor scrubbers make cleaning faster, more efficient and safer than ever before. These three new scrubbers address the need for competitively-priced, high-quality cleaning machines.

How to Choose the Right Floor Scrubber

The type of scrubber will depend on your facility's size and how you plan to use the machine. A few things to consider when selecting your floor scrubber include:

  • Facility size and usage. How large is the space to be cleaned and what time of day will it be cleaned? 
  • Cleaning environment. How much traffic is in the area? Is it high traffic or low-to-medium traffic?
  • Specific challenges. Is there equipment or other considerations in the environment that would make cleaning more difficult?

Armed with this information, you can decide which of our new models will serve your needs the best. 

"Our customers are committed to maintaining the health and safety of their facilities and enhancing their properties’ image—all while facing pressure to reduce the cost of cleaning,” said David Strohsack, Vice President of Global Marketing for Tennant Company. “We developed these new commercial scrubbers with those challenges in mind. The result is a set of core solutions that can enhance the image of our customers’ facilities, prioritizes health and safety, and simplifies maintenance and operation – at a competitive price."

Tennant's new micro scrubbers are prepared to meet the cleaning challenges of most facilities. From schools to hospitals to retail and public institutions, our floor scrubbers are well-equipped to meet your needs.
