Product Details

Don’t let the compact size fool you! The Clarke FM40 is a beast when it comes to orbital floor buffers. The machine comes standard with a heavy duty 1.5 horsepower motor, 160 pounds of down pressure and a 3,540 RPM pad driver. The floor buffer weighs 98 pounds by itself, but also comes with 3 weights weighing 21 pounds each. This gives you a full 161 pounds of down pressure for maximum scrubbing and stripping effectiveness.

When using the Clarke FM40, you'll find that you are getting cleaner floors with fewer passes and less strain on the operator. A more efficient is a win-win for all involved. With a standardized 14 inch x 20 inch pad deck, the versatile FM40 is an ideal replacement for a variety of other equipment, too. In addition to scrubbing small, hard-to-reach areas where using a large auto scrubber doesn’t make sense, the FM40 also supplements Clarke® Boost® machines to perform chemical-free floor finish removal.

When paired with the appropriate pads, the FM40 floor machine can even be used to clean grout in bathrooms, prep gym floors for recoats, bonnet clean carpet, and burnish terrazzo, marble, and concrete.

Deluxe Version

Baseboard cleaning

Now you can clean baseboards without having to purchase a separate machine, or worse, getting down on your hands and knees to scrub. That’s because the FM40 LX comes standard with an innovative baseboard cleaner attachment. This simple device easily attaches to the front of the machine to provide a convenient alternative for cleaning baseboards.


Switchable Modes

Easily switch between operating modes with the wheels up or on the floor. When the wheels are up, the FM40 LX provides the high fully directional maneuverability of traditional floor machines. When the wheels are down, it delivers high productivity forward-and-backward motion like a burnisher—with control so balanced that it enables single-handed operation and no fatigue.


Full Modularity for Easy Transport

The FM40 LX easily disassembles without tools to maximize the convenience of transportation. Each of its modular attachment components is painted bright yellow for easy identification. This allows BSCs and other operators who frequently lift and transport their equipment between job sites to separate it into easily manageable pieces.



  • Seamless chrome-plated handle tube resists rust and increased durability.
  • Operates in any direction very easily because there is no side torque.
  • Low noise levels allow for cleaning in the most noise-sensitive areas.
  • Totally enclosed, fan-cooled, motor for protection against overheating.
  • Heavy cast iron main frame supplies weight for aggressive cleaning.
  • Comes with a 3 year warranty on parts, 2 years on labor & 180 days for travel.
