Viper VE 17P Floor Buffer Repaired for Coventry Flooring Company

A specialist flooring company based in Coventry, called us recently to ask if we could repair their Viper VE 17P Floor Buffer. It seems a member of staff had broken a lever on the handle of their floor buffer that they used for polishing floors and being a flooring company they needed the machine back in operation quickly.  We already had the required part in stock and with Coventry being only an hour away from our service center we were able to schedule in a visit by one our engineers that afternoon.  We have numerous customers in the West Midlands which has a long industrial heritage due to the discovery of coal in the Black Country and was very active during the industrial revolution.

Replacing a Broken Viper VE 17P Handle

The flooring company has a showroom to display the different flooring materials they sell and of course the showroom flooring had to be kept looking clean and polished in order to give customers a good impression! For this purpose, the customer owned a Viper VE 17P Floor Polisher.

As the customer had reported on the phone, the problem with the machine was nothing mechanical, but stemmed from accidental user damage, as a member of staff had broken the lever on the handle which switched the power on. As our engineer knew what the issue was in advance, he was well prepared, and as such, had all the necessary parts on the van with him to make the repair on-site.

He was therefore able to fit the lever that afternoon and tested the machine to make sure all was working. It was working properly once again with no issues and our engineer could leave satisfied knowing he solved another customer’s problem.
