Floor Scrubber Battery Charging
Floor Scrubbers should be plugged in at all times when not in use. Floor Scrubbers that are not plugged in can self- discharge over time and kill your battery pack. Batteries should be charged after each use – no matter how short of a time. When plugging the charger into the floor scrubber make sure you verify that the ammeter needle moves to the right of the meter window, if there is one on the charger. This confirms there is power to the floor scrubber and the charger is working. Allow the charger to complete the charge process by letting the charging system turn off on its own. Short charging will promote unbalanced batteries and costly battery replacement. Lead acid batteries do not develop a memory and do not need to be fully discharged before recharging. Check water level monthly for every battery and every cell. Note that the cells within a battery are totally separate cavities, so filling one cell does not fill the adjacent cells.
USE DISTILLED WATER ONLY. DO NOT USE TAP WATER.
Watering should be performed after fully charging the battery.
Floor Scrubber Battery Operation and Cleaning
Poor periodic maintenance can contribute to battery discharge. Poor battery cable contact due to improper torque can create reduced run times. Battery cables should be torqued to 110 inch pounds. This should be checked periodically. Corroded terminals will lead to improper connections. Use battery corrosion spray periodically or use baking soda/water mix to clean corrosion from terminals.
