KM90/60R Adv: enhanced sweeping power and performance

Kärcher has announced a facelift to its popular compact ride-on sweeper, the KM 90/60 R. The new KM90/60 R Advmodel features several upgrades to further in- crease convenience, performance and serviceability. Themost noticeable differ- ence on the outside is the new cover that allows cleaning tools likemops, brooms and litter pickers to be carried on board, but it is under the skin wheremost of the improvements lie. The petrol version now features a Sub-

aru Robin engine with 9hp (up from 6.6hp), an automatic choke, and run time of up to six hours on a single tank. All models fea- ture Kärcher’s automatic filter cleaning system, Tact, which enables a small, flat- pleated filter to be used instead of the usual large cylindrical filter. This makes servicing easier and improves dust control even further. Kärcher’s professional productmanager,

Jeff Hilton, said: “The original 90/60 was launched in 2008 andmarked a step- change in our compact ride-on sweepers range. Since then we’ve listened carefully to customer feedback around the world and are confident that the Adv version will fully address these customer requirements. The Advmodel also shows how we can incorpo- rate crossover technology into ourma- chines. The Tact automatic filter clean systemis a Kärcher development that we first used on our vacuumcleaners. This is the first sweeper in the world to include such a system. And with petrol, LPG and battery power options, we have the right machine for any application.”

All-in-one effective cleaning solution

The XR Scrubber Sweeper fromFactoryCat is designed for cleaning paved pedestrian areas in and around public buildings and in city centres. Factory Cat XR Rider Scrubbermachines have a powerful drivemotor that can climb steep ramps and come standard with heavy duty tyres. Features of the drive systeminclude an automatic parking brake and the ability to reduce transport speed while scrubbing or reversing tomaintain the life of the squeegee. The XR has large cylindrical brushes, powered by industrialmotors, that can sweep and scrub in a single pass, with side brooms to sweep into the edges. The optional trailer-mounted cold water pressure

washer - powered by a Honda petrol engine - can be easily attached to the XR, using the 270ltr water tank as a bowser. The XRT pressure washer will run for over 20minutes on a tank full, allowing the operator to undertake small pressure washing tasks without running hose pipes and power leads. The XR can then be used to collect any excess

water generated, either through the standard squeegee or a factory fitted wander hose. For a free demonstration call 01794 521443 or visit
