Advance SC6000 Rider Scrubber Pros & Cons

Pros: The durable SC6000 autoscrubber offers a low cost of ownership and up to 4.5 hours runtime (30% longer than comparable models). SmartFlow™ technology dispenses solution based on speed and reduces water and chemical use up to 50%. The intermittent solution off control minimizes water use in tight turns, and the EcoFlex system allows for intermittent, aggressive cleaning. 

Cons:  The SC6000 isn't designed to pickup objects larger than a soda can. It's best for medium or light debris.

Hands-on with the Advance SC6000 floor scrubber:  The machine feels very sturdy. When you stand on this machine, it feels solid where others are wobbly. First-time users will find the SC6000 very easy to to use, and supervisors like the ability to track impacts and idle time. Removing and replacing the cylindrical brushes or disc pads is very easy,  and the squeegee is equally simple to remove and install. Lastly, this machine offers excellent visibility.

Summary: The Advance SC6000 is one of the best mid-size ride-on scrubber dryers on the market. It's ease of use and low cost of ownership make it a popular choice for buyers and operators. A fully-protected scrub deck, side-skirts and rollers protect the machine and your facility from damage.
