Pedestrian vs Ride-on Floor Scrubber

If you are thinking of hiring or purchasing an industrial floor scrubber machine, one of the first considerations you will make is what model you require to get the job done efficiently.

At SRS Cleaning Equipment, we boast a wide range of floor scrubbers for hire or purchase, depending on your business requirements. 

We offer pedestrian and ride-on floor scrubber models that provide optimum cleaning results, however it really just depends on your business which type of scrubber you require.

If you are unsure which model is best suited for your industrial space, let us introduce you to both varieties of floor scrubber to help you make the right decision for you and your business.

Advantages of a ride on scrubber

There are many advantages that a ride on scrubber can have on industrial business floors.

The biggest advantage of a ride on floor scrubber is the speed and efficiency that it provides. If you are the owner of a huge warehouse with lots of open floor space, a ride on model is guaranteed to get the job done much faster than a walk-behind model.

Ride on floor scrubbers are a fantastic investment because they save so much time. Getting the job done faster will save your business money overall because staff can spend less time cleaning and more time on other business tasks. Despite a ride on floor scrubber initially costing more, over time it will save money on cleaning costs and improve productivity overall.

Typically, ride on scrubbers have the ability to more easily navigate wider paths and are extremely manoeuvrable for the operator. If you have large industrial spaces that require cleaning on a regular basis, consider hiring or purchasing a ride on scrubber.

Advantages of a pedestrian scrubber

On the other hand, walk behind floor scrubbers offer many advantages of their own.

Walk behind scrubbers are people-powered, which means there are no running costs required, unlike the ride on models. Pedestrian floor scrubbers generally tend to be smaller in size than ride on options, which makes them ideal for spaces that are more restricted. For spaces where a ride on model is too large, the pedestrian alternative is much more practical.

There are also a wide variety of accessories available for pedestrian floor scrubbers, which makes them a suitable choice for a huge range of floor types. Walk behind scrubbers can be used indoors as well as on driveways and footpaths, so they are highly versatile and durable.

Another desirable advantage of a walk behind floor scrubber is the reduced noise, which causes less disturbance to day to day operations. A pedestrian model also costs less than a ride on industrial cleaning machine, so if your budget is less then you will receive fantastic value for money from a walk behind scrubber.
