Another call we received over the Christmas holidays was a call from a fashion retail store regarding the malfunction of their Karcher BR40/25 scrubber drier. The store was located in Birmingham, West Midlands. Birmingham is the second largest city in the United Kingdom and known as the “Workshop of the World” for its history of cutting edge development in the sciences and industry. Incidentally Birmingham also has a rich artistic culture, ranging from literature, (the home of J.R.R Tolkein, author of The Lord of the Rings) to music, as it is the origin of Heavy Metal, owing to the influence of bands such as Black Sabbath, and Napalm Death.
Getting back to the story, the owner of the independent fashion store contacted us to say the brushes on his floor cleaning machine were not rotating when the machine was powered on. He had bought his machine from another supplier but could not get any assistance from them as they were closed throughout the Christmas period. He had found our number by using the Google search engine. We were only too happy to help out as we offer repairs and servicing nationwide, to all users of floor cleaning machines no matter where they were original purchased.
Assessing the Karcher BR40/25 Scrubber Drier
As well as the need to keep the store presentable the manager was concerned with clothing falling on the floor and so it was very important that the floors were kept as clean as possible. The sales were on, the weather was wet with occasional snow and so their Karcher BR40/25 was getting a lot of use.
An inspection of the machine revealed that the drive belt had snapped. Hence, there was nothing to turn the brushes which was causing the problem the retailer was experiencing. Like a fan belt on a car they do need replacing on a regular basis on they will break with wear. On this occasion, all that was needed to get the machine operational again was for our engineer to replace the belt, and the machine was up and running in no time.

The customer was satisfied with the results and the machine is once again running at its peak. Aside from repairing the machine, the engineer offered in depth advice about the future maintenance of the machine, demonstrating the most effective way to keep the machine running cleanly and efficiently. Advice on preventative maintenance and proper care of the machines is something that is always offered to customers. We also have Karcher BR40/25 Parts available for the machine and can replace the Karcher BR40/25 Manual if you need one.
