About the Challenger Low Moisture Oscillating Pad System

Challenger Systems is an oscillating pad machine best described as a random orbital machine. It features two movements, first a random orbit is created, allowing the pad to clean all sides of the carpet fibers while also utilizing a freewheeling revolution, similar to an orbital care polisher.

Challenger Systems uses a set of gliders to take some of the motor’s weight off of the carpet making it easier to handle. It also allows the motor to run cooler and longer. The two types of gliders used are a solid glider and a holy glider. The Holy Glider’s pile lifting ability gives this system its aggressive nature and its capability to quickly clean the nastiest carpet.

Randy in Sioux Falls, SD (September, 2013)  “I’ve been using the Challenger to clean commercial businesses for about 3 1/2 years. It works great and doesn’t leave carpets over-saturated.  It is effective on stubborn stains and easy to get up and down stairs.  I’ve had nothing but success with it.”  


 Oscillating Pad FAQ

The absorbency of  pads plus the orbital action of the counterbalance provides unsurpassed removal of soil and stains from carpets. The oscillating action cleans all sides of the fiber, lifting and separating the matted fibers to restore the full textured “new look” of the carpet. The combined oscillating and rotating cleaning action leaves the property owner delighted and satisfied.

The Challenger has proven its superiority over steam cleaning machines by saving carpets that other cleaners have given up on. When moisture is extracted with a steam cleaner, stains and soil are often retained in the base of the carpet. It gives a clean appearance initially, but the dirt wicks back to the surface as the carpet dries. The oscillating and rotating motions of the Challenger’s moistened terry cloth pad does not allow the dirt and stains to hide. The Challenger thoroughly cleans the carpet. The carpet dries in one hour and stays clean longer.
