Brush Guide - Tips for selecting the right brush for your floor machine

1) Auto Scrubbers

Auto scrubber brushes have special brand/model specific connectors.
It is important that you match your brush to your machine.
i.e. Viper machines need a Viper brand brush.

2) Low Speed Buffers (175)

Low speed buffers (175 rpm) fit most brushes because the clutch plate is more universal.

If you did not purchase your machine from CleanFreak.com, we recommend you call us at 888-722-5508 to ensure compatibility with your buffer.

Carpet Brushes

Low speed carpet brushes have stiff outer and soft inner bristles. It is important that you flag it (run on a hard surface like concrete) to get burs off and break in the brush. This prevents damage to your carpet.

Make sure to remove the plastic glide in center on larger sizes prior to breaking in.
