Client introduction

Tassone Orchards is based in the apple growing town of Kirup (Western Australia).

Rob and Julie Tassone are a big part of the local agricultural community where they grow the famous Pink Lady apples and pears.

The Challenge

Rob is great mates with Steve Atherton who live 30 minutes away. Steve purchased a ASC Eureka Mach 1 walk behind sweeper from ASC WA Area Manager Ross Sheehan at the end of 2020.

Rob was impressed with the sweepers ability to sweep up the farm debris and dust with no airborne dust discharge and a simple operating process.

Rob has a busy farm shed with tractors bringing fruit in from the orchards, so he needed a strong machine to sweep the foreign matter so that it did not get carried into the 4 large drive-in refrigerated cool rooms where the apples are stored for up to a year.

Rob also asked ASC’s Ross Sheehan if there was a chance to also demonstrate a floor scrubber as he spends 3 hours on a pressure washer cleaning the cool room concrete floors. This sprays dirty water all up the sides of the cool room and then they must wash it out across the shed floor to the outside drains.

The Solution:

Ross was able to demonstrate the ASC Eureka Mach 1 and two other floor scrubbers, the ASC Eureka E51 and the ex-fleet ASC Factory Cat Micro Mag.

Both the ASC Eureka M1 sweeper & 2 scrubbers were demonstrated inside the cool room.

Rob could instantly see the cleaning power of the heavy duty ASC machines.

The floor was left so clean it was amazing.

Using the ASC floor scrubber demonstrated to Steve Atherton that there was no excessive noise & no excessive water use required to clean his cool stores.

All the dirty water was contained in the scrubber’s tank.

The result

Rob and Steve had a quiet chat about 10 mins into the demonstration and returned to tell Ross that they would take both scrubbers, one each.

A great day in apple country, clean cool rooms and crunchy apples
