Early accolade for sweeper
07 October 2015
The latest addition to Hako's line-up of sweepers has marked its UK debut by receiving a prestigious European accolade.
The Citymaster 1600, seen at the RWM Exhibition (15-17 September, NEC, Birmingham), has been certified and recommended by Germany's Aktion Gesunder Rücken (Campaign for Healthy Backs) and the Association of German Back Therapy Centres.
The state-of-the-art sweeper impressed the highly respected organisations with its ergonomic design that provides maximum comfort and support for operators.
Sylvie Giangolini, Hako sales director, explained: "All our products are designed and built with the operator's safety and comfort in mind, as we understand that keeping them comfortable is a key factor in improving productivity.
"Reducing the risk of back problems also means that less working days are lost through ill health, further reducing costs to the employer – not to mention the very real suffering of the employee."
She added: "In the case of the Citymaster 1600, operators benefit from a full suspension chassis, a range of seating options, spacious cabin, excellent visibility and an innovative, integrated control panel."
