When choosing a floor cleaning machine for home, domestic or light commercial use then an NLL machine such as the NLL332 and NLL415 are ideal. These machines are super compact and lightweight, yet they are also great at scrubbing and polishing.
If your primary objective of floor cleaning is a machine that is good at scrubbing and stripping then a slower machine will be far superior at this application. A machine with a brush speed of around 150RPM will be ideal. The most popular among our customers is the HFM1515.
When looking for a machine that can do both polishing and scrubbing a brush speed of around 230 RPM is ideal. This will allow for buffing, stripping and scrubbing to all be carried out with one machine. A great example of a machine from this range is the NPR1523.
If you require a floor cleaning machine that will only be used for polishing then a higher speed is required. For tasks like this a machine of around 300RPM and higher is ideal. This will allow the machine to carry out polishing tasks at a much faster rate than slower floor cleaning machines. A great example of a 300RPM machine is the HFM1530G .
When choosing a machine it is worth considering whether or not you require brushes or pads, as the associated drive board or brush is nearly always cheaper if purchased with the machine as part of a package.
