New Affordable High Performance Burnishers From Amano Pioneer Eclipse

SPARTA, NC--(Marketwire - March 17, 2011) - Amano Pioneer Eclipse, a worldwide provider of professional floor care solutions, announced the introduction of two new machines to their broad line of high performance battery and propane powered scrubbers, burnishers and stripping machines. The PE400BU Ultra High Speed (UHS) burnishers are designed to give floor care professionals the performance features of higher priced units in one durable, affordable package.

The 28-inch (71 cm) machine maximizes floor coverage while the 21-inch (53 cm) machine improves maneuverability in tighter spaces. Both machines use an 18HP Kawasaki propane engine that is 34 percent more fuel efficient and requires 40 percent fewer oil changes than any other burnisher in its class. An adjustable handle and soft tread wheels allow for precise custom set up for operator comfort and optimal results. Both machines exceed both EPA and CARB minimum requirements.

"We are all living in a climate of tight budgets and reduced capital expenditures," states Vic Thomas, Executive Director of Sales at Amano Pioneer Eclipse. "Our customers have challenged us to manufacture a high production burnisher that produces great results, but with a price tag that won't eat up their budget. These two machines do that and more." 

The PE400BU is based on the Mean Machine™, a successful propane powered floor burnisher that has been a mainstay of Amano Pioneer Eclipse for the past decade. An aggressive cost saving exercise was conducted early in the year to accommodate the reduced budgets of current and future customers. "We looked at every angle to see where we could cut costs without cutting performance," says Derrick Hamm, director of Research and Development at Amano Pioneer Eclipse. "The result of this effort gave us two machines that are great performers, easy to maintain, very durable and easily affordable."

The engine on the 28-inch (71 cm) and 21-inch (53 cm) machines produces significant performance ratings with pad speeds of 1700 and 2000 RPM respectively. Both burnishers are designed with the Rok-Bak™ feature that allows the machine to safely tilt back on its handle without fouling the engine. This tilt back action fully exposes the under carriage and allows the operator to change pads easily without tools. Both machines are manufactured with American made aluminum castings and an AGM battery and support a variety of scrubbing and curing pads. 

As part of a full line of professional floor care solutions, the PE400BU will give flooring professionals the power and performance typically found in higher priced machines. Backed by a two-year engine warranty, these new burnishers are the latest development from Amano Pioneer Eclipse - a worldwide machine and chemical manufacturer that provides simple floor care solutions for almost every type of floor surface. For more information on the PE400BU or any of Amano Pioneer Eclipse professional floor care products, please visit www.pioneer-eclipse.com. In the US call 1-800-367-3550. For international inquires; 1-336-372-8080.
