    Figure 15

    To move the i-mop® XL Plus from one location to another one in a building:

    1. Put the i-mop XL Plus in park position (refer to section 4.2).

    2. Hold the handle with one hand (Figure 15, pos 1).

    3. Walk slowly and pay extra attention if you pull the i-mop XL Plus over obstacles.

    4. To lift the i-mop XL Plus over obstacles, always use two hands.

    • Hold the handle with one hand.

    • Lift the scrub deck with the other hand.

  • Page 23:

    23

    6.2.2 At the job site

    1. Crouch down while holding the scrub deck

    firmly with one hand (Figure 16, pos 2).

    2.

    Push the handle forward with your other

    hand (

    Figure 16, pos 1).

    3.

    Bring the scrub deck slowly down to the

    floor.

    WARNING

    Never push down the scrub deck with your foot.

    Figure 16

  • Page 24:

    24

    Figure 17

    4. Stand behind the i-mop® XL Plus.

    5. Choose your cleaning mode via the main switch (Figure 17, pos 7). This will also turn on the i-

    mop XL Plus.

    • MODE 1: Brush + water/cleaning solution (Figure 17, pos 1).

    • MODE 2: Brush only (Figure 17, pos 2).

    • MODE 3: Brush + vacuum (Figure 17, pos 3).

    11. Releasing the trigger (Figure 17, pos 9) will immediately stop the i-mop XL Plus. The vacuum

    motor will stop after 3 seconds.

    TIP: Learn to swivel

    Operating the i-mop XL Plus is very intuitive and like steering a bicycle. The i-mop XL Plus is

    designed to move forward. To turn, stop walking and use your inside hand (the hand in the

    direction you want to go to) to turn the handle. The i-mop XL Plus can swivel 360 degrees

    making it possible to reverse direction.

  • Page 25:

    25

    WARNING
