Nilfisk-Advance has listened to its customers’ requirements and is introducing a no-frills compact, ride-on sweeper built to provide reliable, high-quality sweeping efficiency.

The SR 1100S is available in both petrol and battery-driven versions, making it suitable for indoor or outdoor operation. It has superb manoeuvrability with a tight turning radius, so it is ideal for cleaning in narrow aisles and other congested areas.

To ensure robust and reliable performance, the sweeper has a solid metal-traction motor support and broom-motor circuit breakers. The simple yet strong construction is achieved by using polyethylene on a steel frame body.

The company believes there will be a strong demand from contract cleaners and small to medium-sized industrial companies, hotels, supermarkets, education establishments and anywhere there is a requirement to regularly maintain a clean, dust-free area at the rate of up to 7,00m² per hour. The SR 1100S is also suitable for indoor carpet sweeping.

With a main filter area of 5m² and hopper capacity of 70L, the SR 1100S will collect a large amount of debris without creating dust. An optional remote on-board vacuum system is available for customers wanting to collect debris from tight corners and above floor level.

The battery version has a standard running time of four hours, but with the optional battery tray this can be extended to six. The working width with side brushes is 900mm; this increases to 1,100mm on the left-hand-side brush model.
