The T681 is a small ride-on scrubber that’s maneuverable for its size but has larger solution and recovery tanks than our existing models, allowing the machine to be more productive by cleaning more square footage in less time. The T681 features intuitive controls that allow for easy operation in medium to large spaces such as retail stores, hospitals and schools. The T981 is a ride-on scrubber that’s easy to operate and maintain, helping customers meet facilities’ cleaning performance needs with easy-to-choose pre-set programs. The T981 is well suited for cleaning light-to-medium dirt in large spaces such as retail, logistics and light industrial applications.

“What these new scrubbers really offer are more choices for the right job,” said Pat Schottler, Vice President, Global Marketing at Tennant Company. “Customers today are looking for the right combination of equipment for their facility—and the ideal mix includes size, application, maneuverability and budget. The T681 and T981 are great options for customers who want the known value of the Tennant experience and are looking for high-quality equipment with simple yet effective scrubber technology—all at a competitive price.”

Key benefits and features of the T681 include easy-to-use controls for easy operation and maintenance for quicker operator training and preventative maintenance; a more consistent and effective clean for enhanced facility image—accomplished through the combination of a three-stage vacuum motor, adjustable down pressure and automated brush leveling system; increased productivity due to large volume solution/recovery tanks that allow for continuous cleaning; and an integrated chemical dosing system that helps the machine use the correct amount of chemical, leading to a better clean and eliminating over- or under-scrubbing.

The T981 boasts benefits and features including easy-to-use controls for easy operation and maintenance for quicker operator training and preventative maintenance; reduced cleaning costs from the use of large solution and recovery tanks, which enable the machine to clean longer without interruptions to dump or fill tanks; the option of either a disk or a cylindrical scrub deck, allowing for the right solution for a given cleaning environment; versatile cleaning area reach—climbing ramps graded up to 16%—for consistent cleaning throughout a facility; and exceptional water pickup to promote a more effective clean while leaving behind safer, drier floors.

Order dates vary by model, with shipments slated for late spring to early summer. To learn more about Tennant Company’s line of ride-on scrubbers, please visit tennantco.com.
