ways accurate and to the correct specification for superior cleaning performance with no wastage. There is no need to prepare solution before starting work, or to rinse the tank af- terwards, which eliminates product wastage and saves time before and after the shift. Pouches containing different prod- ucts for a range of applications and floor types can be swapped easily. These remain safely sealed when not mounted in the machine and can be reused whenever re- quired. This promotes safety when handling, eliminates product wastage and improves productivity by eliminating time spent preparing solutions during or prior to work. The use of advanced materials and long life components

promotes machine uptime while minimising service and re- pair costs. The newly-designed squeegee and brush cou- pling/uncoupling simplifies machine preparation and maintenance. These components can also be removed with- out touching the brushes and pads which enhances operator safety, especially in applications where broken glass or other sharp items could be collected. Routine and daily tasks are simplified by a number of features also found on other Taski machines. For example, all parts needing frequent mainte- nance checks, such as squeegee, brushes and filters, are coloured yellow for easy identification and simpler operator training, and can be removed without tools. Operator convenience and productivity is enhanced with a

start/stop function. This allows all machine settings includ- ing solution flow level, brush pressure and Eco mode to be stored at the push of a button at the end of a cleaning opera- tion. These saved settings are automatically used when the machine is restarted so that cleaning can commence imme- diately. The Taski swingo 5000 is available with a number of battery

options. Depending on battery choice and the type of applica- tion, the machine can operate for up to six hours between recharges, enough for a full working day. An on-board charger incorporates a management system which monitors the charging process. During machine operations it also pre- vents deep discharge which could potentially damage the battery or limit its working life.

The POD - reduce paper consumption by up to 20%

Kennedy has introduced the Paper POD, a mechanical auto-cut paper towel dis- penser that can assist in re- ducing paper consumption by up to 20%* thanks to its reserve system. The POD is a mechanical

auto-cut paper towel dis- penser that provides single use paper portions for hy- gienic hand drying and, with its compact size, contempo- rary design and translucent blue cover, the unit inte- grates with the rest of Kennedy`s washroom dis- penser range. Thanks to the reserve sys-

tem, with its built-in patented stub roll loading mechanism, a new roll can be loaded into the dispenser before the previous roll has

been fully used. When the stub roll has been fully used the mechanism transfers to the new full size roll. The re- serve system prevents the paper from running out at the end of the roll, and en- sures that no unused paper remains on the stub roll. The POD has been de-

signed to accommodate a large variety of paper rolls - various roll lengths, diame- ters, widths, and paper thickness, 1-ply or 2-ply. This flexibility is what makes the POD a suitable choice for non proprietary auto-cut paper dispensers. For cus- tomers who prefer to source paper rolls together with the dispenser, Kennedy can offer a standard 2-ply 110 metre paper roll. For large customers who

may require a proprietary so- lution compatible with their specific paper roll only, Kennedy`s in house team of designers and engineers are happy to offer tailor-made product adaptations. www.kennedy-
