What type of brush should I choose?

Posted by Carlos Ramirez on

When selecting a brush for your scrubber machine, it is essential to know what type of brush you need. To make the right choice, it’s important to understand the differences between each type of brush you can find on Hi-Gear.com. Let me walk you through a few of the options available.


The first type of brush we have available are cylindrical brushes. These brushes are rod-shaped and turn in opposite directions to ensure a deep clean. Many machines often utilize two of these brushes in order to provide a more efficient cleaning experience. These brushes are ideal for cleaning floors that are uneven or rough and are often recommended for facilities that have a large amount of debris or dust buildup. 


Rotary brushes are often used in floor polishers. Due to the material make up, these have a longer lifespan than a basic cleaning pad, which reduces the frequency that maintenance is required, which can help save money in the long run. Logistically, these brushes revolve around an axis, which makes them ideal for covering large surface areas. Some examples of this type of brush are cup brushes and wheel brushes. 


Looking for a simple yet effective brush for your machine, look at the ring/wafer brushes. The wafer ring brushes are designed to sweep up dust and debris quickly. These brushes are made from either propylene monofilament or crimped steel wire, which creates durability and high performance. They are often used to clean up road debris. 


The last brush category we have available are segment brushes. Segment brushes are brushes that can be joined together to create a variety of lengths and selection preferences that may be desired. The flexibility of this option is one of the significant advantages of using this type of brush for your sweeper or scrubber. Pick the segmented brush that best fits your machine. 

The most important thing is making sure you have the right part in order to keep your machine up and running for longer. With the wide variety of brushes available, you can ensure that Hi-Gear® has the parts you are looking for.
