Be careful when you "think" you are buying a refurbished scrubber drier or sweeper...

Here is a brief guide to refurbished machines, what you need to know and what you should be looking for!
The term "refurb" is too often, too loosely used and to be honest there are a lot of sub-standard machines being sold in the market place and a lot of mis-leading information being put forward when it comes to the sale of scrubber dryers and sweepers. Working in your best interests we set you the challenge when looking at other supplier's machines to ask the question:

"What are they able to confirm IN WRITING has been refurbished or replaced on their machine."


If they are not prepared to put this down in writing and they can't offer anything to substantiate that the machine has been refurbished then it is not a refurb.

We stand by the information we provide SMS customers are welcome to question us on any of the details we provide and also see the machines in action. Our definition of refurbishment is that the six main items on a machine MINIMUM should either be replaced or overhauled as follows:

  • New Battery Pack is a must
  • Drive/Drive Wheel Assembly
  • Scrub Deck
  • Lifting Gear Actuators (scrub deck/suction bar)
  • Mechanicals inc wheel bearings/steering etc.
  • Electrics
As you will see below, each of our refurbished machines have an itemised list of what has been replaced and given a realistic grading, all of which we are happy to confirm in writing. All batteries in our refurbished machines are brand new with warranty (unless otherwise specified).
