 Factors: Labor Savings, Machine Emissions, Electricity Usage and Purchase Price

 MONTGOMERYVILLE, PA, USA – Aztec announced today that it considers its Aztec LowRider Propane Burnishers “Greener” than battery burnishers. In concluding this, Aztec considered the following facts:

Battery Burnishers:

  • Cost twice the price of Propane Burnishers
  • Work at half the speed of Propane Burnishers (ISSA 540 Cleaning Times)
  • Have half the head pressure
  • Are twice as heavy to move around as Propane Burnishers
  • Have very limited run time, then need to be charged overnight
  • Are virtually impossible to move if the battery dies so the trans-axle won’t function
  • Have large batteries that fill landfills with lead and other heavy metals
  • Use grid electricity generated 90% from burning coal
  • Vent fumes from acid batteries when charging

Propane Burnishers:

  • Cost half as much as Battery Burnishers
  • Work at twice the speed of Battery Burnishers (ISSA 540 Cleaning Times)
  • Have twice the head pressure of battery burnishers
  • Weigh half as much as Battery Burnishers
  • Have unlimited run time with quick-change tanks
  • Can be easily moved with or without power to system
  • Use clean-burning Liquid Propane Gas (LPG)
  • Have Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approval as clean
  • Have EPA approval as a “Green” power source
  • Can increase a facility’s LEED score by adding credits when using IAQ dust control system

If the sole purpose of a floor burnisher is to shine floor finish as quickly and inexpensively as possible, the choice is clear.  Propane-powered burnishers are more productive, less expensive and less environmentally hazardous than battery burnishers.

In addition to the above, the new Aztec Low Rider burnishers have the additional features and options:

Standard Equipment

  • Premium Quality Catalytic Mufflers
  • Low Oil Auto Shut-Down
  • Patented LPG carburetor
  • LPG Safely Lock-Out

Optional Equipment

  • Available in 21″, 24″ and 27″
  • Dust Control is GS-42 LEED compliant
  • Electronic Emission Shut Down
  • BlueSky Electronic Fuel Feedback Configuration
  • Centrifugal or Electric Clutch
  • Safety Kill Switch
  • COMING SOON: Spray Buff Upgrade (retrofit kits available!)
