                                      Free yourself from the constraints of
                                      using cables with the Victor V-9B Battery
                                      vacuum. Quiet, powerful, robust and easy
                                      to manoeuvre, the V-9B is the choice for
                                      daytime vacuuming.



The unit comes complete with two battery packs means that the only time you need to
stop cleaning is to change battery packs.

                        Victor’s Fast Charge Technology means that a battery pack
                        can be charged from empty in the same time as a charged
                        pack in use runs out of power (20 mins approx.). All you need
                        to do is swap the battery packs and you are ready to go again.
                        Virtually continuous cleaning is available using the V-9B.

tool. Optional accessories include the Victor 7-litre tank, scrubbing and polishing
brushes. A pad drive is included wth the machine.

The handle can be folded over for storage. The battery can be removed
and replaced quickly to give an extended run time. The battery provided

whilst using another.

are no power sockets available.

Tub Vacuums
                                 V-9




The Victor V-9 has been developed for the
commercial marketplace, from exceeding
HEPA filtration standard IEC60312, right
down to the five castors that provide ease of
movement.


One of the very best ways of creating an indoor airborne health hazard is to suck all the
bacteria, fungal spores, dust mite faecal particles, and any other particulate allergens
out of the floor covering and then blow them liberally into the surrounding air where
they travel easily from room to room contaminating the whole building.

What is IEC60312?

IEC60312 is the only international standard available for the measurement of air
filtration efficiency of vacuum cleaners for household and similar use.
The test is performed with the complete vacuum cleaner mounted inside a sealed test
rig specified by the standard. The cleaner inlet is dosed with measured amounts of
standard dust. Particles in the discharge air are then counted into six separate size
bands down to 0.3 microns. The test approximates to actual use conditions and the
results are standardised as a single percentage efficiency figure enabling the direct
comparison of one vacuum cleaner with another.

To meet the ‘HEPA’ standard of filtration the unit must remove particles larger than 0.3
Microns in diameter with more than 99.97% efficiency (i.e., fewer than 300 particles per
million of 0.3 Micron size should penetrate).

The Victor V9 HEPA 9 litre tub vacuum, in tests, achieves an efficiency of 99.9965% -
passing only 35 particles per million which is 8 times better than the standard allows.

Powerful suction and proven effective filtration make the Victor V-9 one of the most
productive tub vacuum cleaners available.

Mains Scrubber Driers
                                           V-SD40




                                       The SD40 provides 35 kg of down force
                                       delivering a very heavy duty scrubbing
                                       action that will remove the toughest of dirt
                                       from the most demanding of floors.



The simple to use pictorial control panel makes operating the SD40 and training a new
operator quick and easy. All the functions can be controlled independently allowing
greater flexibility in your cleaning routine to maximise results. A pre-scrub can be
carried out by activating only the solution and the brush giving the chemical increased
reaction time before picking up the solution and dirt during regular passes with the
vacuum running.

                              V-SD15




The SD-15 is an effective hard floor
maintenance machine. Designed for
the regular scrubbing and drying of any
type of hard floor surface leaving floors
exceptionally clean and dry.

This 15 litre capacity scrubber drier can be operated either working forwards or
backwards due to the squeegee’s located either side of the brush. The brush itself is
fully floating so it can adapt to uneven floors giving them an even clean.

Furthermore, the SD-15 cleans right up to the edge of any floor due to its extended
brush. The brush can also be easily removed for cleaning or changing to one of the
others available for use on a different floor type.

The brush, vacuum and solution spray functions can all be
individually controlled allowing the operator to tailor the clean to
the floor requirement. For example on a particularly dirty floor you
may utilise the brush and spray functions to carry out a pre-scrub,
agitating the cleaning solution on the floor giving the chemical
maximum contact time for a more heavy duty clean.

Applications

Scrubbing and drying of hard floors.

Advantages

Cleans up to the edge.
Independently controlled functions.
Cleans moving backwards or forwards.
