Dirty, Soiled Carpets Transformed to Immaculately Clean in the Quickest Time Possible

The Rabbit 8 is the FASTEST, most powerful carpet cleaning machine on the market. It allows you to immaculately clean a large area of dirty, soiled carpet (i.e., a nightclub or hotel carpet after a messy late night party) and do so in HALF the time it takes with any other carpet cleaning machine. So, when you clean a carpet with a Rabbit-8 you’re going to feel a renewed sense of pride in a cleaning job well done. Plus, you’ll be earning your cleaning contract fee in a fraction of the time it would normally take.

Leading Institutions That Select Centaur Machines

Versatile and a Time Saver

“I’ve been using Centaur floor machines for 15 years with great success. Attachments like the water tank and the 40lb weight makes the machine’s versatility quite impressive. The baseboard attachment (Scrub Jay) is phenomenal. As you know wax and liquids get splashed on the baseboards throughout the year and it is very time consuming to remove them by hand, but with this attachment, all that is required is to apply baseboard cleaner and go.”

—Dustin Chang, FCH Maintenance

Frequently Asked Questions

Can the Rabbit-8 work on hard surface flooring too?

Yes, the Rabbit-8 can be used for floor cleaning simply by changing the driver. However, we do not recommend using the Rabbit-8 on wood flooring as there will be a lot of torque on the handle which can strain your wrist.

How do I empty my tank?

At the back of the tank, there is a shut-off valve and a drain plug. Use the shut-off valve to ensure that no liquid pours out even if you pull the handles. Use the drain plug to quickly and efficiently empty the water tank.

What is the purpose of the LED lighting on the Rabbit-8L?

With our new high-power waterproof LED lighting you can clean your carpets when there is no to minimal lighting. The system will also allow you to see the divots in the surface to help you get an even finish and clean.
