Life Span

Each used scrubber can have a different life span. There are a few components that go into life span. One factor is how old the equipment is when you purchase it. Another factor is scrubber type. A used walk-behind scrubber might last longer than a used ride-on scrubber. Some scrubber types were meant to be more durable than others. 

The most important factor is how well the previous owner maintained the equipment.

When browsing used floor scrubbers, make sure to ask your dealer: 

  • How old is this equipment?
  • What is the average life span of this model?
  • How well was this scrubber maintained?
  • What was this scrubber used for?

Asking these questions will give you a more accurate understanding of your equipment. You’ll get a better idea of what maintenance looks like and what ongoing costs will be. 

Maintenance and Parts Availability

A good way to prolong equipment life is through regular maintenance. Maintenance prevents costly repairs by dealing with issues as soon as they pop up. This ensures consistency while combating any equipment downtime. Thankfully, maintenance for used equipment is relatively simple.

Buy a used machine that's already been well-maintained to avoid unnecessary costs. If it's in fair condition and has been properly maintained, it'll be good as new. Continue to do regular maintenance to prevent bigger issues from occurring down the line.


It’s important to consider the size of your used equipment. If it’s too large, it won’t fit in your place of work. If your scrubber is too small, it could take too long to clean. 

Don’t overlook size when it comes to purchasing used equipment. Different used ride-on floor scrubber models, for instance, come in different sizes. Used walk-behind floor scrubbers are typically smaller. However, some used walk-behind floor scrubbers might not fit in your workspace. Keep individual models in mind. There’s no true industry standard.

Another important factor to account for is squeegee size. The squeegee is normally the widest point on a scrubber. Check the machine specifications for its size. If it’s too large, it might not be able to fit through your door. In this case, you can opt for an alternate squeegee kit that’s narrowed in size.
