Ensure that the battery pack contained within the scrubber dryer is sufficiently powerful to last at least for the duration of a cleaning session.

The battery packs are chargeable, and obviously larger machines will require more battery usage, so the importance of the battery power should be at the top of your list of criteria.



While a lot of scrubber dryers are quite bulky machines, some are larger than others and as such they might be less agile than their smaller counterparts. If you work in a building that has narrow, winding corridors or small rooms that you need to clean, a smaller, more agile scrubber dryer is the right choice for you.

Walk-behind scrubber dryers tend to be more compact than ride-on scrubber dryers, so if you are willing to sacrifice the convenience of a ride-on scrubber dryer, there is a wide range of walk-behind versions that can more than match your needs.



One of the main features that an ideal scrubber dryer should have is the inclusion of an efficient brush. The brush system is vital to lifting dirt and dust from the floor, so without it the effectiveness of your scrubber dryer will be considerably hampered.

More recent developments mean that a lot of machines have self-levelling brushes, to help cope with the uneven floors in many industrial and commercial environments.



A sizeable storage tank for water and cleaning solution is a must. The tank on any scrubber dryer you buy should be large enough to last for the duration of your cleaning session.

It can be very inconvenient to have to refill your storage tank mid-way through a clean.



There will inevitably be some bumps and scrapes when you are cleaning, particularly if you are in tight spaces.

Ensure that the body of your scrubber dryer is strong and resilient in order to protect the inner workings from the aforementioned knocks and bumps.



Here at Alpha Power Cleaners, you can rest assured that all the aforementioned criteria are met by our wide range of scrubber dryers. Whether you want a walk-behind or ride-on scrubber dryer, our catalogue of machines from the world’s leading manufacturers has everything you need.
