NEXT-LEVEL CLEANING PRODUCTIVITY
A new standard of clean
When you cease traditional and manual mopping and begin using an i-mop, you choose to dramatically improve cleaning results whilst also saving time and money. The i-mop solves the problems of traditional floor cleaning systems by combining the flexibility of a mop with the power and speed of industrial scrubber dryers.
Fast tank refills
Fill, refill and empty the machine easily. The removable tanks and inbuilt filling hose allow you to refill at any water source without returning to a dedicated chemical station. Switch between chemicals in a matter of seconds by clicking on a different solution tank. With an in-built eco water saving mode, you will be surprised how little water and chemical the i-mop uses.
TIGHT AREA CLEANING
Low deck profile
The ultra-low profile 7cm deck on the i-mop xl allows you to clean floors around and underneath objects that you could previously only mop. With 350rpm brushes and 22kg of scrubbing pressure, the cleaning power of the i-mop produces excellent results. Cleaning up to 1800sqm per hour, the i-mop xl cleans floors faster and with better results than traditional wet mopping.
THE WORKHORSE IN THE WORKFORCE
Quick exchange i-power battery
With 2 sets of batteries, your i-mop will never need to take a nap. The i-mop xl runs on easily changed i-power batteries, with an optional second set of batteries giving it the ability to run 24/7 with a single machine. Try that with a traditional battery scrubber. Learn more about i-power.
Brush & Pad options
Choose from a wide range of pads and brushes to get the best result on your floor. The i-mop pads come in a variety of textures easily recognized by their colours. Different pads are available for daily or intensive periodical deep cleaning. The brushes range from soft to aggressive bristles and can even be used outside or on extremely dirty floors. Due to OHS obligations there has been an increase in the installation of non-slip floors in aged care, healthcare and many public facilities across Australia and New Zealand. While these floors improve safety standards and reduce slip risk, they can present a significant challenge to keep clean as traditional and microfibre mopping methods may be ineffective. The i-mop with the range of pad and brush options has dramatically improved cleaning results in many facilities.
Compact mopping design
A typical battery scrubber dryer of the same scrub width (46cm) would weigh 100kg, compared to the i-mop xl at 22kg. The compact design of the i-mop allows you to easily store it in a cupboard anywhere. The durable transport wheels make travelling from building to building a breeze, and the i-mop XL will fit in a standard vehicle for transport between sites. The i-mop xl is ready to clean wherever you need it.
The i-mop Basic, Plus & Pro: What's the Difference?
The original i-mop XL floor scrubber boasted a 46 cm scrubbing width, lithium-ion batteries, twin 350 rpm scrubbing brushes, linatex squeegees, interchangeable tanks, intuitive user interface and more. Since 2015, a host of upgrades and new features were added to the i-mop XL walk behind scrubber and its larger sibling, the 62 cm i-mop XXL. These upgrades included colour coding options, brush and pad options for different floors, smarter battery management systems, various battery and charger options and a range of other i-mop accessories.
In 2020, i-team launched the largest group of upgrades to the i-mop yet, launching three variants of the i-mop XL & XXL floor scrubbers. Enter the Basic, Plus and Pro!
So what’s the difference between i-mop Basic, Plus and Pro?
Essentially, the ‘old’ i-mop XL/XXL floor scrubber version (i.e. 2019 i-mop) has become what i-team now call the Basic model. However, the Basic model has received a raft of critical upgrades. The below table shows a summary of the new 2020 i-mop scrubber features, along with additional features of the Plus & Pro.
Let’s break down these features one by one, starting with those on the i-mop XL/XXL Basic:
Battery safeguard Through experience with thousands of i-mop users, we learned that operators often forget to turn their i-mop scrubber off after use. This meant the machine was still switched on and draining battery power while in storage, which over time may cause the i-mop battery voltage to drop too low to be recognised by the charger. (Note: This can be fixed; however it required a technician to revive the i-mop i-power batteries) The new battery safeguard on the i-mop floor scrubber disconnects the i-power batteries power when the machine is in the park or transport position – even with the machine left on. Only when you lower the i-mop brush deck will the battery power kick in. This ensures optimal battery life, along with maximum machine uptime.
Control panel The upgraded control panel on the i-mop XL and XXL walk behind floor scrubbers has a lower inlay and added rubber bump protection. These features are designed to protect the control panel from accidental damage and make it easier to work with.
Splash guards Splash guards have been standard on the i-mop floor scrubber for some time. However we have introduced a new, improved version which is made of flexible PVC. This PVC is a sturdy material that is wear-resistant; yet has enough flexibility to absorb the movement of brushes or pads on the machine without being dislodged. The new splash guards also do not collect dirt - an issue with brush bristle-type splash guards.
Float ball system To protect the vacuum motor from accidental water ingress, we have added a float ball system to the recovery tank on the i-mop. The float ball will rise with the water level. Suppose the water is reaching a level where it could go through to the i-mop vacuum motor. In that case, the float will block the vacuum inlet, minimising the risk of any water passage to the motor. Note: This float ball system can be retrofitted to earlier models of the i-mop XL and XXL autoscrubbers.
Now for the additional features on the i-mop XL/XXL Plus model:
Electronic switch The electronic switch on the i-mop Plus & Pro models is an additional safeguard to prevent water from entering the vacuum motor. When the machine’s handle is lowered to 32 degrees from the floor, the i-mop will shut down as this is an angle that risks water getting to the vacuum motors. The electronic switch supplements the protective action of the Float Ball System.
Timer display The i-mop Plus & Pro models' user interface incorporates an hour meter that shows the total hours of machine operation. This is particularly useful for maintenance purposes, allowing you to keep track of when your machine may require servicing. It also enables accurate records when leasing or hiring out the i-mop.
And the i-mop XL Pro:
Deck coating The top-of-the-range i-mop XL Pro battery floor scrubber incorporates all the i-mop Basic and Plus features, plus a heavy-duty black coating on the machine's deck. This black deck on the i-mop XL Pro scrubber makes the model easily recognisable. The coating helps protect the deck from corrosion in harsh environments, especially those with high chlorine levels such as around pools or in hospital theatre cleaning, or salty environments such as beachside areas.
