Sometimes change is good, sometimes it isn’t. In 2005 the SS5 came out, what is the SS5 you say? The predecessor to the SS500 of course!
Nobles had made what I believe is one of the most solid pieces of equipment I have ever seen- a workhorse.
Just the same as the Black and Decker Drill designed in the 1930’s, Nobles hit the mark. A tank on wheels that cleans floors as effectively as any piece of cleaning equipment ever has. When the marketing team at Tennant Company announced that they were going to hand us a new, better version of this workhorse… You can understand why we were nervous.
The SS500 is all that it could be and more.
• Fewer parts.
• Universality -A lot of the parts are used to make other models in the line.
• A battery refill system that automatically refills wet acid batteries safely and constantly.
• A shorter turning radius and almost perfect division of weight full and empty.
