Nilfisk-Advance, the global leader in professional cleaning equipment, has introduced a walk-behind carpet cleaner that can be quickly converted into a scrubber/dryer for hard floor surfaces.

Designated the AX 651 multi EDS, this unit is designed to save investment costs and to increase productivity for cleaning contractors, and for facilities with both carpeted and hard flooring to be cleaned. To change from one mode to the other takes less than 30 seconds, and does not require the use of any tools whatsoever.

With its low noise levels of just 66 dB(A) whilst scrubbing and 69 dB(A) whilst extracting, the Nilfisk AX 651 multi EDS is suitable for daytime cleaning, even in noise-sensitive areas. EDS signifies that the unit is fitted as standard with Nilfisk’s unique EDS-ECO Dosage system. This ensures that the precise amount of detergent is used, thereby avoiding waste and ensuring optimal cleaning performance. The system delivers the detergent directly to the scrub-deck, thereby saving water and eliminating the need for regular tank cleaning.

A Nilfisk-Advance spokesperson commented: “The introduction of this addition to our product portfolio is again the result of the company’s policy of maintaining close dialogue with cleaning professionals. This unit will save the user time and money, and is another step towards our goal of lowering the total costs of cleaning.”

Nilfisk-Advance, the global leader in professional cleaning equipment, celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2006, and is a member of the Danish NKT Group, listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. The company has sales offices in 35 countries and including distributors Nilfisk-Advance is represented in more than 100 countries world-wide.
