New best-in-class UHS burnisher

Sparta, North Carolina- Amano Pioneer Eclipse, a worldwide provider of professional floor care solutions, announces the introduction of the PE440BU floor burnishers to their broad line of high performance battery and propane powered professional floor care machines. Available in three different widths – 21, 24 and 28 inches (51, 61, and 71 cm respectively) – the PE440BU is an Ultra High Speed (“UHS”) propane powered burnisher with a unique design that improves the machines form and function.

The most notable feature of the PE440BU is its wrap around engine filter and streamlined head cover. The head cover creates a more public friendly aesthetic while the wrap around engine filter reduces filter cleaning by more than 50%. The unit is powered by an 18HP Kawasaki propane engine modified with the APEC Proprietary Propane Power System (“3PS”). This system, unique to Amano Pioneer Eclipse, creates a burnisher that is 34 percent more fuel efficient and requires 40 percent fewer oil changes than any others in its class. An adjustable handle and soft tread wheels allow for a precise set up to maximize operator comfort and produce optimal results. All PE420BU machines exceed both EPA and CARB minimum requirements.

“The PE440BU replaces the SpeedStar™, a very popular burnisher used by customers around the world,” states Vic Thomas, Executive Director of Sales at Amano Pioneer Eclipse. “We upgraded the engine to add a bit more power and lowered the machines total operating costs.”

The maneuverable 21-inch machine produces up to 25,000 ft2 (2300 m2) of polished floors per hour while the larger 28-inch machine unit produces up to 34,000 ft2 (3160 m2). The PE440BU is produced with a 12 volt battery start, catalytic muffler, handle bail clutch, wrap around steel skirt, CentriVac™ dust control system and SafeSense™ emissions monitoring system. Like other burnishers produced by Amano Pioneer Eclipse, the PE420BU comes with the RokBak™ feature that allows the machine to tilt backward to ninety degrees for fast and easy pad changes. The machine is backed by a one-year limited warranty and a two-year engine warranty.

“You won’t find this many standard features on any other burnisher on the market today,” says Brian Strickland, Vice President of Product Development at Amano Pioneer Eclipse. “Customers looking for a robust burnisher with all the bells and whistles will find the PE440BU really hits the mark.”

The PE440BU 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.
