Orbital floor machines are quickly becoming one of the most popular new machines for janitorial and custodial professionals. With so many of these new products on the market, how can you decide which one is best for you? This guide will help you make the most informed purchasing decision possible.
Weight Equals Performance
Weight makes all the difference when it comes to orbital floor machines. Machines with the greatest head pressure prove to be the most efficient and effective for any surface prep or cleaning task. Your floors will strip faster, screen better, and scrub more effectively with a heavier machine. A 150 pound machine will perform better than a 100 pound machine and a 200 pound machine will perform better than a 150 pound machine. When choosing an orbital machine always look for a model that weighs more than 200 pounds. Of course, be sure that the machine has removable weights so that the machine can be made lighter if needed for transport purposes.
