Holds Synthetic pads securely in position with plastic barbs.
The key to ordering a pad driver is the block diameter relative to the machine size. A pad driver is specified at 1" smaller than the machine. To measure your machine, tip the machine back, expose the bottom of the chassis and measure the inside diameter. Remember, most floor machines are listed by their cleaning path, and not the physical dimensions of the pad driver, chassis or deck.
When ordering a pad driver from Pullman-Holt, order the same size pad driver as your machine. We have already sized the block of the pad driver correctly to account for the 1" difference so it fits entirely within the chassis. If you do not know the size of your floor machine, measure the inside diameter of the chassis as explained above and add 2". This is the size pad driver you want to order. You can order floor pads that are 1" to 2" larger than the pad driver and they will still work effectively with your floor machine.
What is the difference between drive brush & pad driver?
The drive brush has trimmed nylon bristles designed to hold a floor pad to the floor. The pad driver functions similar to Velcro, plastic barbs are used to the secure pads to the driver block, which is attached to the floor machineâs base. Drive brushes are recognized for removing vibration and wobble. Some pad drivers allow the securing of the pad via a center locking device or nut. Caution: Do not use a drive brush without a pad, and do not store a floor machine with the drive brush attached.
The only time a pad driver is preferred over a drive brush, is with higher speed (RPM) machines, such as the 20â 1.5hp Dual Speed or Burnisher. (All drivers and/or brushes measure 2â smaller in diameter to the machine used on.)
