The main differences of a floor polisher and a floor burnisher are:
|Floor Polisher||Floor Burnisher|
|Are Low Speed||Are High Speed|
|Operate in a side to side motion||Drive Straight|
|Used to strip, clean, buff or scrub floor||Used to Burnish (High Shine) a floor|
Floor polishers are versatile floor cleaning machines that operate by using rotating brushes or pads to scrub, polish or buff a floor to maintain its appearance. There are a range of alternative attachments for different floor surfaces, so they are quite a versatile cleaning machine.
Floor Burnishers polish the floors at a high rate of speed to produce maximum shine.
In general, both burnishing and polishing result in a smooth shine. However, while the two are often used interchangeably, burnishing often refers to a mechanical process, using a mechanical burnisher. Polishing is a more general term and can refer to polishing by hand or by machine.
