These 17 inch Jumbo steel wool floor pads are the premium solution for floor care and maintenance. The pads fit on any of our 17" low-speed buffers or 17" dual-speed buffers. Jumbo steel wool pads are thick and fluffy, promoting high absorbency and minimal clogging. They are designed for maximum surface contact even at the toughest angles. Being hand-wrapped, they are constructed to eliminate scratching because there are no welds, wire stays, or stitches.
These pads are perfect for cleaning, dry scrubbing, polishing, or finishing almost any type of floor and can be shaken out to be used again and again. The weight of the floor machine keeps the steel wool pad secure once it is attached underneath. If you are looking for an even tougher pad that is more compact and less prone to tear, shred, or fray, check out our 17" Textsteel pads.
