Advance SC6500 Rider Scrubber Offers Unsurpassed Agility

Advance’s newest scrubbing powerhouse, the SC6500, delivers effortless control and efficient, sustainable scrubbing in a compact package. The tight turning radius, simple operation and up to 48-inch clean path deliver effective, single-pass cleaning to demanding environments such as warehouses, manufacturing plants, athletic facilities, universities and more.

Efficient, single-pass cleaning.

The SC6500 boasts high-capacity, 70-gallon solution and recovery tanks and the tightest aisle turn radius in its class, helping you to maximize scrubbing time and get the job done faster. With its high power scrub deck driven by dual 1.5hp motors, a single pass is all you need to achieve an amazingly clean floor. 

Heavy-duty durable construction.

Specifically engineered for the most severe industrial applications, the SC6500 packs an array of features that extend its service life and minimize downtime. The maintenance-free AC brushless propulsion drive delivers a quiet yet powerful and precise performance. Combined with an industrial bumper, frame-mounted deflectors and a tubular, steel construction, the SC6500 is as tough as they come and built to last.

Versatile operation.

The SC6500 delivers the highest level of clean no matter what the job or who is behind the wheel. Heavy-duty adjustable Linatex™ side squeegees apply downward pressure leaving floors clean, dry and safe. Even rough floors are no match for the SC6500. The optional dual vac system is designed to enhance water pickup on uneven and porous floors, even at high speeds. The available EcoFlex™ System cleans smartly and more sustainably with customizable settings that allow the operator to effortlessly switch between chemical-free, water-only cleaning and varying degrees of detergent use. 

The flexibility of the SC6500 doesn’t stop there—an offset scrub deck effectively cleans hard-to-reach edges and the Clear-View adjustable tilt steering column provides an ergonomic ride for virtually any operator. The SC6500 easily adapts to just about any conditions you throw at it, ensuring improved cleaning productivity for facility maintenance crews on a wide variety of challenging floors.

Nilfisk-Advance Changes Corporate Name, Brand to Nilfisk

Nilfisk-Advance, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of professional cleaning equipment, today announced that it has changed its corporate name and brand to Nilfisk. The change is designed to create a stronger alignment with the company’s global product brands while increasing brand awareness for Nilfisk customers.

“In changing our name, we are reducing complexity in our branding and simplifying our overall brand hierarchy to make it easier to understand for our end-customers and dealers across the world,” said Jonas Persson, president and CEO of the Nilfisk Group.

According to Jeff Barna, senior general manager and president of Nilfisk-Americas, removing Advance from the corporate name and brand in no way diminishes the importance of the Advance product brand. “We will continue to leverage the strong heritage and history of the Advance, Clarke, and Viper brands as we market and sell them throughout the Americas,” he said. “This new corporate identity provides an exciting opportunity to support Nilfisk’s future market strategy and further position the company as a global market leader.”

Barna added that the change does not impact the company’s current product brands or brand names, nor the company’s go-to-market approach with dealers and end-users.

A new Nilfisk corporate visual identity will be unveiled in April; over the course of the year, Nilfisk will update websites, marketing materials, back office systems, legal conditions, etc. to reflect the change.

Nilfisk is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of professional cleaning equipment with around 5,500 employees and an annual turnover of EUR 918M. Based on a century of cleaning expertise, we develop and manufacture high quality products that represent the latest technology and innovation and offer the broadest product portfolio in the industry. Nilfisk has sales companies in 45 countries around the world and with an additional strong distributor network Nilfisk markets and sells its products in more than 100 countries worldwide. Nilfisk is a part of the NKT Group.
