Power-Vac Model Selection

Power-Vac Model Selection
Select the Right Model for the Job

If you are in a property management company, janitorial service, construction / contractor business, maintenance group, government agency or own your own business, your search for a commercial / industrial grade vacuum is over! But you must be wondering which model and accessories?

Depending on your needs, you can select the model that best fits your cleaning application(s) along with various options to aid in your cleaning. Start your selection with four of the key considerations:

  1. What type of material needs to be picked up?
  2. What type of surface is being cleaned?
  3. What is the size of the area being cleaned?
  4. What is the vacuuming environment?
What Material needs to be Picked Up?
Flat Stock
Paper Cups
Plastic Bottles up to 2 Liters 
Pallet Wood Slivers
Leaves & Grass Clippings**
Metal Filings
Metal Strap Pieces
Shop Litter
Wrapping Cellophane
Straw / Hay
Foam Packing
Food/Snack Containers
Saw Dust
 Nails, Bolts, Nuts**
Dried, Caked Debris

* Not an all inclusive list; however, if you have any questions, contact us.
** Best used on hard surfaces. Not as effective on turf surface unless using the Leaf Blower Accessory but not suggested for vacuuming leaves and debris on turf.
*** Common industrial size hardware found in buildings, plants, etc.

If you answered no to any of these QUESTIONS, is the material fine dust and litter? Are you looking for dust free vacuuming? Then visit our Power Sweep product line.* Not an all inclusive list; however, if you have any questions, contact us.
If you answered yes to any of the above materials, then answer the following questions:

What is the surface being cleaned?
Hard Surfaces such as concrete, asphalt, tile, wood, marble, vinyl, etc. This is not an all inclusive list; therefore, if you have any questions, contact us.
What is the size of the area being cleaned?

10,000 sq. ft. up to 100,000 sq. ft.. If you have any questions regarding coverage area, contact us.

If you answered no to this range, and the area is less than 10,000 sg. ft., then see our Other Similar and Supplemental Products.

Otherwise then the Power Vacuum is the vacuum for you! Now let’s figure out your engine type.

What is the Vacuuming Environment?
  • Outdoors – Gasoline, Propane Electric or Lithium-Ion Powered
  • Indoors – Electric or Lithium-Ion Powered
  • Well Vented Indoors – Propane, Electric or Lithium-Ion Powered

After considering the engine, now pick the right size. Visit the individual Power Vac pages to see more about for each engine
type and review other considerations: Gasoline, Propane, Electric, and Lithium-Ion or visit the Power Vac Product Line Description Page.
