Viper AS710R Maintenance

Despite being robust and heavy-duty, the Viper AS710R is still liable to fall victim to certain faults if it is not maintained regularly – as with all cleaning machines. Our engineers regularly stress the importance of preventative maintenance as well as annual servicing, to ensure safety and performance. Recurring issues that can happen if the machine is not properly maintained are:

  • Blocked filters
  • Scale build-up in water tanks
  • Greasing
  • Connections
  • Battery maintenance

These issues can all be resolved, as mentioned above, with regular maintenance, but also, are easily resolved by our engineers. Spare parts are readily available and under-the-hood access to the machine is easily achieved due to the Viper’s design. Recently, we had a call from a customer who was experiencing a number of the issues listed. The filter had become blocked, the suction rubbers damaged and the floor pads had been overused. All of these issues were solved by our engineer, but may have been avoided altogether if proper maintenance of the machine was adhered to.
