How about the vacuum motor, you ask? Prepare for amazement.

As a result of meticulous engineering, our vacuum motors are individually balanced. Therefore, each component is fine-tuned and harmonized, akin to a high-performance engine running effortlessly at high RPMs. Because this electro-mechanical marvel spins at an incredible 30,000 RPM,  it an unparalleled force to be reckoned with. And guess what? It’s as quiet as a whisper. Thanks to our expertly designed two-stage tapered fan, smooth-running double ball bearings, and improved sound quality, this system operates with astonishing silence.

But that’s not all. Because of outstanding engineering, this high RPM unit, paired with a highly efficient cooling system and an impressive 43% overall efficiency, draws a mere 14 amps at full load. In other words, it’s a technical masterpiece that redefines what a vacuum system can do. Get ready to experience the Ferrari of vacuums.

What about lifetime of this engineering marvel?

The vacuum motor is rated at 1500 hours.  This compares to the 200 hour life of a standard shop vacuum you will see at your common hardware stores.  If you run this vacuum 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, this vacuum will continue to operate for over a year and a half.   This compares to a Ridgid vacuum rated for 200 hours or just 5 weeks.   That is why we built into this vacuum an hour meter so you can see how long this beast runs.
