School Floor Polishing with a Taski Ergodisc in Wales

It was with great pleasure that we recently attended the John Beddoes Campus of Newtown High School in Wales to demonstrate a Taski Ergodisc 17” floor polisher. We were there at the request of the school who were looking for a new machine to replace their Taski Ranger 15” floor polisher which had given them 20-years of service. In fact, the old machine had been used on a daily basis during term times to polish the non-slip assembly hall vinyl floor; I don’t think anyone could complain at that and what a testament to reliability of Taski machinery.

Newtown High School, Presteigne

Newtown High School has a history going back to 1565 when it was founded by John Beddoes, a wealthy wool manufacturer. He provided for the establishment of a “free grammar school to bring up the youth …. in virtue, discipline and learning“, and this remains as the ethos of the school today.

The school was to be maintained from the rents of local properties and this legacy continued until April 2014 when the John Beddoes School closed but immediately reopened as second campus of Newtown High School.

John Beddoes endowed the school with the rent from Bell Meadow to pay the bell ringer. He stipulated that should the curfew cease to be rung then the school should be closed, and the financial endowment revert to his heirs. With financial help from the composer and musician Mike Oldfield (of Tubular Bells fame), the tradition continues today on the John Beddoes Campus, where the original bell hangs in the reception area of the school.

The Taski Ergodisc machine demonstrated at the school was actually a reconditioned machine which we were happy to supply with a 12 months parts and labour warranty. New machines are available in various models however the equivalent of the reconditioned 17” machine would be the Taski Ergodisc 400 which has the same working width and speed.

Specifications Include:

Working Width 43cm
Speed 400 rpm
Weight 343kg
Motor Height 38cm
Nominal Consumption 1100W
Cable Length 15m
Noise Level 57 dB(A)

The Taski Ergodisc 17” high speed single disc rotary machine offers safety, simplicity and versatility. It’s especially suited for spray cleaning and buffing and an ideal choice for their floor.

The demonstration went very well, and their cleaner commented on how quiet, easy to operate and user friendly the machine was. Convinced this was the ideal machine for the task they made the purchase there and then and so we left the machine with them.
