Troubleshooting: Does the scrubber squeegee need to be adjusted?
The purpose of the squeegee on a floor scrubber is to collect and guide the water to the scrubber’s vacuum to be collected after scrubbing. If your scrubber is leaving a trail of water behind, or if it is wearing out too quickly or creating too much suction (evidenced by a trumpeting sound), it may need to be adjusted.
How to adjust the squeegee:
These instructions are specifically based on the Factory Cat Mag-HD. Other scrubbers may differ somewhat, but will still follow the same basic methods.
For additional adjustments, loosen the nuts pictured here on the squeegee suspension. Then, rotate the bolt in either direction to raise or lower the squeegee height as necessary. Tighten the nuts when your adjustments are complete.
If you’re still having problems…
• Make sure your squeegee blades are cleaned of dirt.
• Check if the squeegee or vacuum system is clogged.
• Check if squeegee blades are worn out.
• Make sure adjustment areas are tightened.
• Check if the squeegee suspension system is bent, missing parts, or otherwise damaged.
• Remember that sharp turns and very rough floors may leave water behind, even when your scrubber is adjusted properly.
