The versatile scrubber.

HammerHead 500SS Floor Scrubber

Controlled Cleaning

500SS Scrubber Control Panel Showing Active Brush and Squeegee

Control Panel

The control panel is simple and intuitive. The screen shows the operator the current status of the battery, scrub brush, and squeegee. Icons will display on-screen to indicate whether the scrub brush, squeegee, or both are active. In other words, you’ll know at a glance whether you’re scrubbing and drying, scrubbing only, or drying only.

500SS Scrubber - Handle for raising or lowering squeegee

Squeegee Control

Raise or lower the squeegee with a simple pull of the adjustment handle on the back of the scrubber. Put the squeegee down to dry the floor as you go.

500SS Scrubber - Brush Head Control Pedal

Scrub Deck Control

Similarly, you can easily raise or lower the brush head with the push of a conveniently placed foot pedal. A brush icon will appear on the control panel screen when the brush head is down in scrubbing position.

Intuitive Touch Points

500SS Scrubber Squeegee Nozzle Touch Point

Squeegee Vacuum Nozzle

If the squeegee isn’t drying like you expect it to, there’s a good chance you’ve got a large piece of debris clogging the vacuum hose. The bright yellow nozzle indicates the first place to check in case of a clog. (Avoid clogs by clearing your path of large debris before scrubbing.)

500SS Scrubber Solution Tank Filter

Solution Tank Filter

Another point of interest. You won’t have any trouble finding the solution tank filter on the underside of the machine with its bright yellow coloring.

500SS Scrubber Emergency Shut Off Button Safety Feature

Emergency Shutoff

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

500SS Water Filler Hose

Water Filler Hose

Optionally, connect the attached filler hose to a water faucet to fill the solution tank with clean water. Of course, you can also just use a bucket or your own hose to fill up with water.

Solution Tank Cover is a Chemical Dilution Measurement Container

Add Solution

After filling with water, add cleaning chemical solution to the recommended dilution. The solution tank cover doubles as a measuring container!

500SS Scrubber Chemical Solution Flow Adjustment

Adjust Solution Flow

Push in the conveniently located tap command knob to get your chemical cleaning solution flowing for scrubbing. Or, pull it back up when you’re done to stop dispensing the cleaning solution.

Getting Rid of the Mess

500SS Recovery Tank Float

Recovery Tank

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.

HammerHead 500 Series - Recovery Tank Drainage Hose

Recovery Tank Drainage Hose

Easily drain the recovery tank by removing the attached hose and emptying it at your dedicated maintenance area.

500SS Scrubber Debris Hopper Sliding Out

Empty the Debris Hopper

The cylindrical brush is also able to pick up small debris, so don’t forget to periodically empty the debris hopper. Remove it by sliding it out to the side, then dump it and rinse it with water.
