Nilfisk SC401

The compact and highly maneuverable SC401 walk-behind scrubber dryer offers all the speed, accuracy and ease-of-use you need for better cleaning of floors. To make things complete this high-performance machine has an extremely low sound level to enable daytime cleaning – even in sound sensitive areas.

Designed and built with proven Nilfisk technology the SC401 will increase daily cleaning productivity in, e.g. offices, shops, hotels, schools, hospitals, work shops etc.. The high and consistent performance is ensured by the 43 cm scrub deck equipped with brush or pad. Thanks to the superior water pick-up provided by the curved squeegee system the floor is left completely dry – and you can keep up the good work for a long time: Up to 4 hours of continuous scrubbing and drying on a fully charged battery, and up to 100 minutes before the solution tank needs to be refilled.


Using the machine is simple and requires very little training. The 4 wheels make the SC401 easy to maneuver, and the OneTouch™ button activates all functions with one click. Furthermore, the cleaning settings can be changed on the fly thanks to the simple 3 buttons on the dashboard.

 The machine is offered in both battery and cable version. The battery version is available also with traction to maximize user’s ergonomics and comfort when using the machine
