*Note-This machine is sold under many names including Windsor saber blade 16, Bona Scrubber, Karcher BR40, and Tornado BR16. They are ALL the same machine. The only difference is the color of the tanks, wheels, etc.

The factory-installed brushes are on the soft side. We recommend purchasing the red brushes under the “parts” tab, for general cleaning of Wood, Laminate, VCT, LVP, etc. For tile and grout, the orange brushes are recommended.

This is BY FAR our best selling floor scrubber. We work on all types, and I can say without a doubt this is the best value for the money.

Refurbished-Typically our refurbished tornado/karcher machines include-new squeegees assemblies, new brushes, new fresh water and waste tank, and any other parts that need to be repaired. Refurbished machines will need to ship on a pallet, so shipping is usually a bit more expensive vs the shipping cost on a new machine (new machines come factory boxed/crated and are easily shipped ground)

The BR 16/3 puts the power of automatic scrubbing in a compact package ready for virtually any hard floor surface. This corded electric unit operates in forward and reverse with a 16” scrubbing path at 1,100 RPMs. Cleaning approximately 4,306 square feet per hour, your small and congested spaces are clean, dry, healthy, and ready for use in no time.

We will do our very best to beat any advertised pricing or quoted pricing. The customer must be willing to provide a link or quote for us to match or beat.

4 reviews for Tornado BR 16/3 Automatic Cylindrical Floor Scrubber

  1. Mike pollock

    This is a great machine. It makes cleaning wood floors very easy. Very easy to operate And clean. Outcleans the dirt dragon hands down. I Recommend getting an additional tank with it since it does tend to fillup a Bit Quickly. Very happy to have this in the arsenal

  2. Matt Mueller

    I was going back and forth between a couple different auto scrubbers to clean Hardwood floors. After deciding on the Tornado BR16 From SouthEast Cleaning Equipment i Couldn’t be happier, i use It almost daily for cleaning Floors and doing wax removals. Highly Recommend this Machine.

  3. Dave Whiting

    We jumped on this machine the moment it was available and couldn’t be happier. The two cylindrical brushes give a much better cleaning than any other floor scrubber that we tried. This will outperform them all. We highly recommend the Tornado BR16.

  4. Michael Zachery

    After only Two Jobs, its was paid For. It’s made Now tens of thousands of dollars. Other machines Didn’t cut it. I can Attest that Morgan Runs an honest business after many high dollar purchases.
