ASC is the leading provider of public transport and railway station cleaning equipment across Australia and New Zealand.
Whether your business requires ride-on scrubber machines or walk-behind sweepers, ASC is on hand to help advise a suitable product to match your needs.
Our most popular product? The ASC Eureka M1 sweeper.
With minimal maintenance costs and downtime, the walk-behind sweeper is used by a whole host of industries.
Designed to tackle medium-sized areas, the innovative machine has a sweeping path of 780mm and boasts a working capacity close to 3.510 sq/m/h.
We recently recommended the industrial cleaner to one of our clients, V/Line Rail Maintenance. The company was struggling to keep its workshops clean from dust build-up with regular repair and maintenance work taking place.
So we suggested that the business invests in the ASC M1 sweeper, a heavy-duty cleaning device built to pick up dirt and dust with ease.
Not only does V/Line Rail Maintenance agree that the machine is effective but it’s also virtually maintenance-free.
Another popular choice is the ASC Eureka M6 sweeper. Spot on Marine, a boat lifting and hardstand storage facility based in Darwin, was looking for an industrial cleaner which could tackle its large space.
With their services including steel fabricating, abrasive blasting and travel lift – we recommended that they try the ASC Eureka M6 sweeper.
Not only has the investment reduced manual cleaning time by an impressive 93% but the space is now immaculate.
