Back pack vacuums

Anyone have one? Recommendations? I am going to use it to final clean after the drywall finishers are done just ahead of the painters. I need to do the bottoms of the walls and all the electric outlets. I want something that will last and can be used with disposable bags. Unless there is a better system I don't know about.

Here is what I am looking at.
Rubbermaid Commercial 9VBH10 10 Quart HEPA Backpack Vacuum Cleaner, 8A Power, 11-1/2" Depth x 13" Width x 27-19/32" Height

Or this one maybe....
Hoover® Vacuum Cleaners; Shoulder Vac Pro Commercial Backpack Cleaning System


Sorry I am not able to use links yet.


If you know of something better please let me know.

I am disappointed there has been no response to my post but I guess I can't say I am surprised. I have been at this awhile now and have yet to see anyone using a backpack vacuum on a job site.

I can always flip a coin I suppose.

I wish I had some advice for you, I have been debating over a backpack vacuum for quite a while. Still can't decide though.

I bought the Hoover HOV C2401-010 Shoulder Vac Pro Commercial Back Pack.

I looked all over and I got the best price here.

marbeck.com/hoover-hov-c2401-010-shoulder-vac-pro-commercial-back-pack-with-tools-and-attachments/

It fills up faster then I would like but you could suck start a Harley with it I think.


I found it to be a great supplement for my large floor model shop vac but not a replacement. It is much faster to use on stairs and trim. Normal dust use would be different I am sure but I am dealing with drywall dust. So your experience might differ.

The best in my opinion is the Tornado Pac-Vac System, They come in 6 & 10 quart sizes. I can say from personal experience that they work great, use disposable bags and are constructed well. I got mine at Facility Solutions Group the website is facilitysi .com. Can't post links yet sorry. Best price around and the staff is very knowledgeable about their products. The harness on the Pac-Vac is made by Deuter, the company that makes legit hiking packs and gear harnesses. If your still looking, Check them out for sure.

Besides Hoover and Tornado, are there any other good brands which produce backpack vacuum cleaners?

I have a Perfect Backpack HEPA vac and just bought a Proteam Super Coach backpack both are 6qt.
perfect model the button lock on the wands have broken 2x so have to buy new wands or a wand with a button lock. I do like the fact that I'm not stuck with just the Perfect Brand of vacuum bags, oreck bags fit also. The unit is quiet and has good suction. The on/off switch velcros to the harness and falls off easily.
The Proteam model. it has several nice features such as a cord loop to hold the cord near the on/off switch. The harness system seems to be more comfortable than the Perfect. The bags are a triangle shape so probably stuck with Proteam bags. The unit seems a little noisier than the Perfect. The wands use a nut type of connector rather than the button lock used by Perfect. Amazon has/had the Proteam on sale.

Try to make an costs analisys on both continental versions

Why don't you try to search on Amazon or Ebay an european HEPA vacuum cleaner. I tried both continental HEPA backpack vacuum cleaner and the european equipment is more efficient on business cots. I don't give names but you can try german's products.

backpacks I like the Proteam Super Coach 6 qt. I have Windsor & Sebo upright vacuums, like the Sebo which seems to be a knock off or copy of the Windsor. Brad

We use and are mostly satisfied with the Proteam Super Coach backpack vacuum cleaner. We're also looking for a handheld for larger areas, but haven't found the perfect one yet.

Just bought a Super Coach 6 made by proteam. The unit has some extra features such as a cord holder by the housing. It seems to be pretty quiet and the cord that comes with it seems to be a lot better than the cord that came with my Perfect backpack.
The only negatives I think of the bags are a triangle shape so finding knock off's is harder and the filters seem to be unique to the unit.

I bought 2 back pack vacuums thinking they would be better and easier, I don't recommend buying one as they are really expensive and they break down easily, Also they don't pick up as well as commercial vacuums. I recommend investing your money in a shop vac and a commercial vacuum trust me.

I love mine except for how fast it fills. What brand did you get?

I use windsor,they aren't cheap but I still have everyone of them that I bought.

I have replaced some of the brush rollers and a few hoses,also a few cords (employees run over then...grrrr)
However I have not had to replace a single fan or motor and these things are 15-20 years old or more.

In the early days (35 years ago) I bought the cheapest vacs I could get my hands on as I didn't want to spend $500-$800
for a vacuum,but they pay for themselves in savings of time and money.

Having a vac break down when you are on a job is no laughing matter.You are stuck with running to the store and buying one to get the job completed.

If you can only squeeze out the money for one...do it! and then add as you can. Good equipment is worth the $$$'s
