The Big Vac
Tough on dirt but easy on you.

The Clean Team has gone through quite a few vacuums since 1979, and we've tried every major brand. The ideal vacuum--just like the Big Vac-- should:

  • Be the canister type for home cleaning
  • Have 75 inches or more of "water lift" (a measure of suction power)
  • Be comfortable to hold and use
  • Have an on/off switch that's easy to reach (preferably with your foot)
  • Be able to vacuum under most furniture
  • Not tip over when yanked by the hose
  • Have a hose that never twists during use
  • Have a handle for easy lifting
  • Be light enough to spare your back
  • Have a paper dust bag that's large enough to last for weeks, plus a pleated filter that traps particles down to 0.5 micron

The Big Vac offers:
  • 91 inches of water lift
  • Very quiet operation: 65 dB(A), good for home cleaning
  • 0.5-micron exhaust filtration
  • 6-foot hose
  • Powerful, high-suction turbo head with beater bar
  • A second dual-action attachment that moves easily from hard floors to rugs and carpets
  • Rugged, high-impact housing
  • Light weight (only 13-1/2 lb.) and ease of maneuvering
  • 920 watts, 8 amps
  • Large rear wheels and low center of gravity prevent tipping
  • Compact size: 15" x 12" x 12"
  • Complete set of attachments, 3 vacuum bags, and exhaust filter
  • Long 32-foot cord

HEPA Filter

A true H.E.P.A. (high-efficiency particulate air) filter will capture 99.97% of particles larger than 0.3 microns. (10 microns is as small as someone with good vision can see.) H.E.P.A. filters were originally developed to trap radioactive dust in atomic power plants, and they have since been put to use in removing microscopic asbestos particles from the air. Especially for those who are made miserable by allergies or sensitivity to dust, this vacuum will provide real relief. Your doctor may want you to take additional steps, but this filter is a great start.
