PAD DRIVER 101

 

  ABOUT PAD DRIVERS  

A pad driver secures to a floor scrubber or floor machine and is what the floor pad attaches to.

 

The floor pad is what makes contact with the floor and performs the scrubbing and cleaning, not the pad driver

 

IMPORTANT: Never use a pad driver without a pad.


  RISERS  

 

Pad drivers can come with a riser or without a riser.  A riser simply gives additional clearance under a floor machine or scrubber.

This additional clearance allows you to use a larger size pad driver and pad (ie: a wider cleaning path and therefore more coverage which equals time savings).

  EXAMPLE  

If you are using a 17" floor machine you need to choose between:

 

  • A pad driver without a riser - Select a driver that is smaller than 17" since the 17" pad driver won't fit within the 17" floor machine diameter. 

    • WE RECOMMEND: Choose a pad driver without a riser that is 2" smaller than your floor machine diameter. So a 17" floor machine would use a 15" pad driver without a riser and 15"  or 16" floor pads.
       
  • A pad driver with a riser - The riser will provide the clearance needed from under the scrubber or floor machine allowing you to put a 17" pad driver on a 17" machine.
