When you’re in the market for a floor scrubber machine, one of the first questions you might ask is:
“Do I need a ride-on scrubber or a walk-behind machine?”
Once you know the answer, you can narrow down your options to a smaller set of machines that are ideal for your needs.
So, we’ve put together a set of handy pros and cons lists to help you figure out what features are a priority for your cleaning needs, and what kind of machine is best for you.
Walk-behind scrubbers are scrubbing machines that require the operator to walk behind them as they clean - a bit like a push mower. But unlike push mowers, the operator doesn’t need to use much physical energy to push the machine - they only need to walk behind and guide it.
Ride-on scrubbers come with a comfortable operator seat and steering wheel to direct the machine. They’re larger, more powerful machines than walk-behind scrubbers.
Stand-on scrubbers offer an in-between solution - they’re great for larger spaces but take up less space than a ride-on machine. Plus, it’s easier to see the floor area in front of the machine as you clean (compared to both walk-behind and ride-on scrubbers). The main downside is they’re less comfortable to use for longer periods of time.
It depends on a few key factors - how much time you have to clean, the amount and type of floor you have installed, your overall floor plan, your available storage space, and the overall investment.
