Tornado introduces the SWB 26/8 walk-behind battery-powered sweeper that sweeps hard surface floors and cleans carpets. This machine moves effortlessly from carpets to hard-surface floors — no time wasted changing tools, brooms or equipment. With a 26-inch-wide cleaning path, use it in place of a wide-area vacuum cleaner. Quiet, making it perfect for day cleaning situations, it picks up debris large and small. Further, with "overthrow" sweeping technology, the machine''s hopper easily collects debris such as dry leaves and packaging materials.
