Stealth 20 Update News Cover Photo

New Improvements to Stealth ™ 20

We have made some exciting new improvements to the Betco® Stealth ASD20 walk-behind automatic scrubber. We’ve listened to your feedback and made innovative changes to make your floor care experience easier and better than ever— at no added cost!

A completely revised squeegee assembly and 4-sided blades provide for higher usage and a more powerful clean. Improved ergonomic features like the clam shell-style handlebar means easier maneuverability. Under the handlebar, operators can now find a quick and easy access point to machine components for maintenance.

Adding two casters at the rear of the Stealth ASD20, instead of just one, has improved the stability of the machine two-fold without compromising handling or performance.

An all new updated three lug pad driver provides a firm lock that is easy to remove when you need to. The new auto-release mechanism, located on the dashboard, now makes pad storage, cleaning and replacement as easy as the touch of a button.

A more sophisticated battery discharge indicator now reads battery voltage and provides more programming features for easier use and monitoring.

Increased endurance of your machine is important to us. An all-new cast aluminum deck provides superior durability and ensures your machine will withstand the test of time.

Trying to save on energy costs? The all-new Eco Mode saves on energy and provides quiet performance. Eco Mode will empower you by allowing for Stealth Day Cleaning.

Sanibet Burgundy Tip Blog

Sanibet … Pass Along The Savings

The Sanibet ™ Multi-Range Sanitizer high flow dilution is now 1:512 which equates to 200 ppm quat. Previously, an external metering tip was needed to achieve this dilution which required periodic replacement to maintain performance. Although there will be an increase in case price,  end use cost for high flow applications will decrease by 43%!  In addition, no maintenance will be required to replace metering tips, insuring worry-free operation.  The new inserts are now Red (previously Tan). Over the next 6 months you will notice a paper insert inside each case of product denoting the change. Log in to Customer Central or contact Customer Service @ 888-462-3826 for updated pricing.

We Are Moving

Betco will be moving our world headquarters and manufacturing facilities from Toledo to Bowling Green, Ohio. This move will occur mid to late 2015 after the completion of additional manufacturing and warehousing space to the existing Bowling Green building. Once completed, the total building will encompass around 500,000 square feet.

“This move is necessary to support our growing business. The new facility will utilize the latest manufacturing technologies to assure the best quality, innovation and efficiency.   Having all of our teammates in one location will be a tremendous boost for our culture of cooperation”, said Paul Betz, CEO.

“We ultimately selected the Bowling Green area based on its availability to meet our needs for a quality manufacturing and office space, quick access to major highways and local amenities attractive to our team members. As we continue to grow, this state of the art facility should act as another factor to attract talent and bring jobs to Northwest Ohio”, said Brad Betz, Senior Vice President.
