roller without sweeper function is available. Furthermore,
two different fresh water settings increase the cleaning performance.
Due to its dimensions of 63 x 42.5 x 48 centimeters (with folded-up
handle) and thanks to its low noise level of 66 decibels, the machine
can even be used in clinics during the day. The handle features a
display and touch sensors for easy one-touch-operation. Fresh and
wastewater tanks with a capacity of six liters each ensure up to 40
minutes of cleaning at one time. The tank-in-tank system facilitates
draining and filling.
Sweepers for year-round use
Whether it’s snow, freshly cut grass, wet leaves or fine pollen – the
Toro walk-behind Power Broom sweeper cleans paths, lawns and
premises at any time of the year.
One of the special features of the machine – that has a Kohler
(5.2 kW/7 hp) and working width of 91 centimeters – is a
brush diameter of 64 centimeters, which allows a slower
frequency with a lower speed. The motor is less subject to
stress, which reduces wear. A heavy-duty frame developed for Toro
snow blowers in the Power Max series ensures stability.
The machine is easy to operate and maneuver. Six forward and two
reverse speeds provide additional flexibility. With a short press of
the lever, the sweeper can be swiveled both left and right, even
while driving. The wheels can be jointly or individually disengaged.
This allows the machine to be turned, reset and controlled even in
very small spaces.

Thanks to the swivel angle of the brush unit – 20 degrees to the
left and right – snow or leaves can be conveniently removed from
a path. The brush unit can be precisely adjusted. This guarantees
that sensitive surfaces are protected when crossing them, and that
the brush unit maintains the optimal distance to the ground. Brush
units for use on lawns are optionally available. The machine can
also clean artificial turf.
Bucket with clever features
Vikan has expanded its range of buckets to include a 12-liter bucket.
According to the manufacturer, it offers a number of features that
improve hygiene and practicality as well as simplify storage and
handling. The snap-on lid, for example, ensures more safety; the
sloping back wall ensures faster stirring, mixing and emptying, and
a drain prevents water from collecting in the bucket during storage.
The bucket is available in nine colors for hygiene-compliant use.
