The first Hybrid combination sweeper-scrubber, the Nilfisk CS7000, is being acclaimed for its ecological credentials.

The unit is available in three models: LPG-Hybrid, Diesel-Hybrid & ePower Battery and was designed to reduce the cost of operation, labour & maintenance, whilst effectively increasing fuel economy and runtime efficiency.

The CS7000 utilises state of the art electric drive technology enabling reduced emissions with the LPG and Diesel models and emission free indoor operation with the E Power technology on the battery models. The electric Hybrid technology means that the engine drives a large alternator to generate electricity and a 36 volt battery pack provides energy storage. This Hybrid system provides for a fuel saving of up to 30%.

Another innovative feature is the elimination of large hydraulic reservoirs, filters and oil coolers as well as 98% of leak prone hydraulic hoses, pumps, motors and valves. The hydraulic functions are replaced by intelligently controlled electric drives resulting in fewer components and decreased maintenance costs.

In comparison to hydraulic systems the hybrid technology allows for smaller more compact equipment and lower fuel consumption. Together with the option of the Nilfisk Ecoflex system the CS7000 range provides a formidable ecological solution efficient in industrial cleaning.

On the operational front dedicated sweeping and scrubbing functions ensure that debris remains dry without introducing scrub solution or water into the debris hopper.

Optional extras include water heating up to 55 degrees and a 150 bar high pressure washer function.
