Propane Floor Burnishing
& Buffing Machine Maintenance
Floor Buffing Pad Maintenance
After buffing is complete, remove the floor-buffing pad
from the machine. Gently wash either by hand or in the delicate
cycle of a washing machine and then hang to dry. Washing
in a regular cycle or drying in a machine can damage the
floor pad and result in a high rate of unnecessary replacement.
Do not leave a pad on the machine or the next floor buffing
will not result in clean floors. Finally, when necessary,
replace the floor buffing pad.
Storage and Care for Floor Machines’
Propane tanks for the floor buffing machine may be over-filled
to unsafe levels. If propane tanks are overfilled, operators
should vent by using a screw driver in a well-ventilated
area that is away from all sources of heat or open flame.
Propane escapes as a white mist and should be allowed to
escape until the escaping gas turns clear.
When tanks are not in use during floor burnishing or buffing,
they should be removed from the inside of the building.
Store tanks in a secure area that is well ventilated and
not near any sources of heat or open flame such as heater
rooms, boilers, or gas-fired water heaters. In addition,
ensure that any other objects that are in storage with the
tanks are not likely to fall and cause damage to tanks’
Engine Maintenance Meter
The engine maintenance meter helps prevent mechanical malfunction
and increase fuel economy and engine life. Aztec implements
the maintenance meter in the Reliant Buffer and Burnisher
to ensure that operators can easily use preventative maintenance.
The engine maintenance meter has many functions:
