How to Buy
Save money, time and water with genuine TennantTrue scrubbing brushes, designed specifically for your Tennant machines.
Long-life disk and cylindrical TennantTrue brushes feature unobstructed solution and drain holes for optimal cleaning performance. Tennant’s disk and cylindrical brushes provide fill bristle patterns that are optimal length for any floor surface while the appropriate bristle stiffness delivers effective scrubbing performance.
New features make Insta-Fit™ brush and pad driver adapters efficient to install for all levels of expertise. Learn more about selecting the right brush for your application.
Slip, trip, and fall accidents are often caused by oily or slippery floors and debris. These are the leading cause of workers compensation claims with costs exceeding $60 billion per year.* Using brushes specifically designed for Tennant equipment helps reduce the risks associated with these hazards. Minimize your risk by using genuine TennantTrue brushes.

At Tennant, brush development is an integral part of new machine development. Brush characteristics are identified and tested with the machine's down pressure, brush speed, and water flow to help ensure the brush operates optimally with the machine design.
TennantTrue brushes are designed to fit your Tennant, Nobles, and Green Machines cleaning equipment and deliver optimal cleaning performance. The correct fit helps reduce machine downtime and service calls.
Learn what to look for to identify quality in brushes
With genuine TennantTrue brushes, cleaning solution flows through holes in the machine drive plug and brush drive adaptor, then moves across the working face of the brush. When solution holes are obstructed, a significant amount of cleaning solution by-passes the brush – resulting in poor cleaning performance, wasted cleaning solution, and additional labor costs. Brushes not designed for Tennant machines waste water, cleaning solution, and hinder your operator's performance. TOP
TennantTrue brushes include drain holes to help clear the drive plug of debris. Will-fit brushes without drain holes allow grit and grime to collect in between the drive plug and brush adaptor. This can accelerate wear and damage to the drive plug over the life of the brush. TOP
Tennant designs and manufactures each brush for a precision fit to the machine. Will-fit brushes not designed specifically for Tennant machines result in a wrong fit for a specific machine or application. This can cause brush-to-brush interference or leave unclean floor spaces.
Will-fit brush filaments are set at an angle to the cleaning surface. As the bristles wear, debris is often left on the floor between the brush cleaning paths. Tennant brushes are set nearly perpendicular to the cleaning surface to help extend brush life and minimize re-cleaning. TOP
TennantTrue brush tubes are manufactured to the industry's tightest standards for straightness, roundness, wall thickness, and fit. These characteristics ensure smooth operation of the brush and prevent excessive wear and strain on the various machine components. Because the spline is extruded throughout the entire brush tube length this helps ensure balance to the brush resulting in consistent cleaning performance. TOP
The spline on each TennantTrue brush tube is extruded as part of the brush manufacturing process to ensure the best fit on Tennant machines. Will-fit brushes require adapters with screws that can negatively affect brush installation and performance. TOP
TennantTrue brushes provide a maximum bristle length for the longest possible wear. Will-fit brushes that require an adaptor add weight to the overall brush and can compromise bristle length by up to 40 percent *. TOP
*Based on scrub brush when worn to ¾ inch bristle length
Tennant specifies a pull test measurement for bristle tufts to ensure they are securely anchored to the brush. Brush bristles work best and longest when they are anchored securely. Will-fit brushes often have poorly secured bristle tufts that can fall out or be pulled out when going over grates or other rough surfaces. TOP
Tennant's patented sand wedge design contains the same amount of bristle material as high density brushes with distinctive gaps that perform a digging action. This design is most effective for heavy concentrations of sand and other fine materials found in foundries, bakeries, and cement plants. TOP
Side brushes have a round, flared design that reach into corners and around edges, pulling debris in front of the sweeper for pick-up by the main brush. Tennant specifies the flare angle that provides maximum reach without compromising stiffness. Will-fit brushes often use lower grade filament materials, causing bristles to deform and cleaning performance to decline after just a few uses. TOP
TennantTrue parts offer the right brush for every application.

Tennant sweeping brushes are built to last. Made with premium, heavy-duty raw materials and a unique spline drive system, these brushes transfer power efficiently from hub to brush for superior performance and long service life.

Long-life disk and cylindrical brushes feature plastic backings and brush tubes to protect against warping and splitting. Drain holes on disk brushes help flush water and grit from high-wear areas to protect the machine’s drive plug and ensure optimum brush speeds
With TenanntTrue Cylindrical and Disk brushes you get full-fill bristle patterns that are trimmed to optimal length for floor surface coverage. The appropriate bristle stiffness delivers effective scrubbing performance.
*When your floors are coated with Tennant Coatings contact Tennant Customer Service to determine best brush for your cleaning application. **Consult your sports floor manufacturer for recommended cleaning processes. These recommendations are provided as general guidelines for most conditions. Consult your Tennant Sales or Service Representative if an on-site appraisal is required.
