Used three versionsI have been using Ghibli T1 vacuums for over ten years.
I am a commercial and residential cleaner.
I have used all three versions.
The Ghibli has the strongest suction out of all available commercial backpack vacuums.
It has a huge motor vehicle type air filter under the bag.
Regardless what anyone says, you need to use disposable bags within the cloth bag liner.
This vacuum apparantly has a “Hepa Filter”, (whatever that means)
I have noticed that after vacuuming a large house with many dog hairs, that the smell radiates from the air blo... Read morew. I’m not sure if other vacuums do this. The motor appears to be very good quality, and again, it creates extremely strong suction. I use my vacuum on large pharmacy floors. Offices. Private homes. I suck up bits of cardboard, larger chunks of items like polystearene, sand, twigs and leaves. It goes the distance without any hesitation whatsoever. It comes with a lightweight but strong aluminum road. I have dropped mine a few times from a distance and bits of plastic have broken. (To be expected). The actual vacuum does not have any real way to hold it besides a cloth handle located on the harness. If it was carried using this, the harness would give way fairly quick due to the vacuum weight plus chord. It comes with all floor tools and usual other tools. The machine does feel heavy. I would love a cordless one but no doubt the batteries don’t last and would be expensive so a chord it has to be. All in all, I would recommend the Ghibli to any commercial cleaner. It will go the distance and the suction is super strong. Please note: I have attached a photo of my vacuum in the boot of my vehicle. For verified purchase, unfortunately the original receipt is stored away in the appropriate financial year tax folder.
Love it!This is a great machine! I got the new Ghibli T1v3 and I'm really happy with it. It's very powerful and comfortable to wear. I chose the clear lid option so it was easier to see when the bag was getting full, which has been very handy to say the least.
Commercial Vacuum it isnt!We purchased the Ghibli Backpac Vacuum from Freshway Cleaning Chemicals Supplies in May 2016, it is used once a week to clean a small office. The hose near the handle split last month after 4 months of use. It is only plastic but the split now makes the vacuum unusable. When I contacted Freshway Cleaning they said the hose was not covered by the 1 year warranty only the motor was. They were aware that similar splits had occurred to other customers but said Ghibli would not cover it. I expressed my dis satisfaction that a hose could split a... Read morefter 10 uses but it fell on deaf ears. I was told I could purchase a new plastic hose for $50 but I am assuming that the next one would probably split after a few uses also. Would NOT recommend this product, complete rubbish - $400 down the drain for a "commercial" vacuum.
strong vacuum power but bad total structuregood :
strong suction power
weight is ok
bag volume is ok
* nothing available to hang up the vacuum
* All straps are easy to break of the belts, stitching is bad, fabric is not strong enough and wear out very fast, not really strong enough fabric for commercial use. I had to change all the belts and straps after six months of use.
* the lid fasteners don't really click on well. the lid hooks on the lid break of by even looking at them.
* The vacuum bag also had to be replaced after six months. Just normal daily use.
would I buy it again, NO
I was trying these machines because they have the strongest suction, but Hako or Numatic are a lot better....
Perfect!I bought the Ghibli T1 Backpack Vacuum Cleaner , its usually used for commercial use but i wanted a lightweight one for my home which has alot of stairs. The Backpack style makes its easy to use . I was also happy i got the vacuum on special, all in all i would recommend vacuumparts.com.au to anyone!
Easy and great service, very happy with the vacuum purchased

It sounds like dust may have been drawn into the motor and it over heated.
I’m not to cluey on its mechanics, so definitely recommend that you contact CLEANSTAR.
