Sebo Disco Floor Polisher Review

Review of Sebo Disco Floor Polisher

The Sebo Disco Floor Polisher is a polisher head that attaches to a Sebo canister vacuum – the only models it works with are the Sebo Felix, the Airbelt K3, or the Airbelt C3.1. The Disco uses Ultra High Speed (UHS) technology to polish floors and the suction of the vacuum sucks away the fine dust created by the polishing action.

The Disco has a machine width of 13 inches, and a working width of about 12 inches. It comes with 4 different floor pads, for use on different flooring types. The pads are color coded so that the operator chooses the right pad for the right floor.

The Sebo Disco is priced from about $369, and is available in a variety of colors. (*note: the appropriate vacuum that the Disco attaches to is sold separately!) The Disco weighs about 8.5 lbs. It is backed by a 1 year limited warranty.

Sebo Disco Floor Polisher Features:

  • Agile and easy to operate
  • Automatic height positioning of the maintenance pad
  • High gloss shine
  • Attaches to a vacuum

Agile and Easy to Operation:

The Sebo Disco is agile and easy to operate, is about the width of a vacuum, and can get it spaces similar to where a vacuum can reach. It is much smaller than other industrial sized floor polishers. The Disco is constructed with bumpers to protect furniture, walls, or other obstructions, and has 3 rubber coated castor wheels to protect the flooring surface. Also contributing to the Disco’s agility is the swivel neck which is flexible and highly maneuverable.

Automatic Height Positioning:

The Sebo Disco Floor Polisher has a feature which allows it to automatically detect changes in the height of the flooring, and adjust the floor pad accordingly. The rotation of the floor pad is also continually monitored for the best adjustment depending on the floor type.

High Gloss Shine:

The high shine that the Sebo Disco produces requires no water, chemicals, or polishing sands. The results are due to the Disco’s unique pad system. There are 4 different color coded pads which each have a specific purpose. The red pad removes deep scratches and smooths the floor surface. Next, a yellow pad is used. This further prepares the surface. The last step in the process is to use the green pad on the floor, which creates the high shine. The blue pad is used to maintain soft floor coatings such as wax on hard surface floors.

Also contributing to the high gloss shine is the Ultra-High-Speed technology. The Disco’s pads revolve at a whooping 2000 revolutions per minute.

Attaches to a Sebo Vacuum:

The fact that the Sebo Disco attaches to the vacuum makes it a serious cleaning tool. While the Disco’s pads rotate and shine, fine dust particles are picked up by the vacuum, instead of being dispersed into the air. The Disco has a safety feature, where if there is a blockage in suction, or a disc obstruction, the machine will automatically shut off.

Sebo Disco Floor Polisher Recommendations:

If you already own a Sebo vacuum, the Disco complements your vacuum by turning it into a commercial quality polisher for hard floor surfaces. The obvious drawback is, if you don’t already own the vacuum, you’d have to purchase it as well. If you aren’t in the market for a vacuum, the Disco wouldn’t even be an item to consider.

The Disco is not recommended for the following flooring types:

  • Glazed, ceramic, and porcelain tiles
  • Porous tiles. Examples are slate and terracotta
  • Cushioned vinyl, linoleum, laminate or any other flooring type which is not well bonded to the sub floor
  • Any floor with textured or uneven surfaces
  • Tile floor with raised edges
  • Floors with maintenance free coatings
  • Any floor where a glossy finish is not desired

If in doubt, check with the flooring manufacture.
