The versatile scrubber.
The control panel is simple and intuitive to use. Your screen displays the status of the battery, scrub brush and squeegee. You can release your disk brush from the scrub deck, turn on ECO mode and go in reverse with the press of a button. The knob located below the screen is to allow the operator to pick the speed at which the machine moves.
Raise and lower the squeegee with a simple pull of the adjustable handle on the back of the scrubber. When you lower the squeegee, the vacuum will start immediately. The combination of the squeegee and vacuum will dry the floor as you go.
Scrub Deck Control
As with the squeegee, you can easily raise and lower the scrub deck with the push of the foot pedal located at the back of the scrubber. A brush icon will appear on the control panel screen when the brush head is down and in the scrubbing position. The flow of water and solution will begin once you press the handle to start moving forward.
Intuitive Touch Points
Squeegee Vacuum Nozzle
If the squeegee isn’t drying like you expect it to, there’s a good chance you’ve got something clogging the vacuum hose. The bright yellow color indicates it is one of the first places to check in case of a clog. To avoid clogs, be sure to pre-sweep the area of larger debris prior to using your 500SS.
Solution Tank Filter
Another touch point to check on your 500SS is the solution tank filter. It is located at the base of the squeegee deck on the underside of the machine and is bright yellow in color. Be sure to remove and rinse the filter after each use to avoid potential clogs.
As a safety feature, the 500SS has a big red emergency shutdown button. Suppose you accidentally run over a rope while scrubbing and you’re like “Oh no!”. Well, fret not. Just bop the big red button to instantly turn off the machine.
Getting Ready to Clean
Water Fill Hose
Your HammerHead scrubber can be filled with clean, cold water in two ways: with a hose or bucket through the opening at the top of the gray solution tank or by attaching the water fill hose to a nearby faucet (pictured above).
After filling the solution tank with water, add cleaning chemical solutions to get your cleanest floors. The solution tank cover doubles as a measuring container to help you add the properly diluted amount of cleaning solution.
Adjust Solution Flow
Depending on the type of flooring you are cleaning (sealed vs. non-sealed), how dirty they are and how quickly you are moving, you can adjust the amount of solution you dispense. At the rear of the scrubber you will find the command knob that you can raise and lower depending on how much solution flow you want. Raise to reduce solution flow and lower to increase.
Getting Rid of the Mess
When the recovery tank becomes full, the float will protect the vacuum motor by shutting off its air intake. The cylindrical design of this scrubber’s float means that it’s not susceptible to the common failures of other scrubber tank float designs.
Recovery Tank Drainage Hose
Easily drain the recovery tank of dirty solution.
Empty the Debris Hopper
The cylindrical scrub deck will pick up small pieces of debris and sweep it into the debris hopper. Periodically check and clean out the hopper by unlatching the side panel and sliding it out the side. Simply empty contents, rinse with water and slide back into place.
Rinse Out Recovery Tank
Once you’ve drained the recovery tank, it is best practice to take a moment to rinse out the recovery tank of any excess dirt.
Remove Tank Cover
After rinsing out your recovery tank, leave the tank cover off while it dries. This will help prevent the tank from producing a bad odor over long-term use.
The most important last step is to charge your scrubber for the next use. The on-board charging station allows you to easily plug into any nearby outlet.
