Great Vacuum - pity about the batteries
Purchased two Backpac Vacs in Feb 2019 (2.5yrs ago).
This gave us 8 batteries, the first two batteries died after about 18months and another two batteries will only hold half charge so pretty much useless.
Battery warrantee is only 12months so I was told "bad luck" and they are very expensive to replace when compared to other brands.
To replace 4 batteries is not much cheaper than buying a complete new machine.
The actual machine works brilliantly if they could only sort out the Batteries.

Good vacuum but not happy with batteries
Hi using Pacvac 3 years, started battery one 18 months ago one set changed under warranty. But after 6 months same problem runtime.Batteries are expensive. Don’t know what to do .

Great for tiles and hard flooring.
I used this vacuum as a domestic cleaner daily and find it great on tiles and wood flooring, also good on most carpets but if you have pets or people with long hair the rollers get clogged very easily. Would be better if you could remove rollers to clean head. I also find the straps on harness twist continuously, but overall a good sturdy vacuum cleaner.
Purchased in July 2016 for $390.00.
batteries let vacuum down
the vacuum cleaner is great.
but i have nothing but trouble with the batteries not lasting any more than 12 months had first set replaced under warranty now they are not working. had to buy some more and they are very expensive not worth money. not buying any more will look for another brand next time.
All because of the batteries

Good but could do with fine tuning
Ok here we go, I am very pleased with my pacvac superpro 700 corded version but their are a few little niggles. Even though it is very light and comfortable to wear the straps tend to slip off and the carpet attachment feels slightly flimsy and not solid. Don’t let this put you off as I say I am pleased but comparing it to my Numatic ( the company that’s manufactures the Henry) rsv130 backpack vacuum is very solid and better suction, airflow being 48 litres per second compared to the pacvac being only 31 litres per second, my only niggle with ...the rsv130 has been the attachment on the top is a brittle sort of plastic which breaks quite easily and I have made my own modification but otherwise a superb machine all round , sorry pacvac this just needs a little tune up for a very solid machine which will sell a lot better, best regards to the pacvac team/engineers and everyone out there stay safe Mark from the U.K.

Lack of upright balance
Esthetics and functionality play important part when a device is put into real practice. In case of PACVAC BACKPACK VACUUM it looses its upright balance when 18-20 m electric extension cord is winded up and hang on the side of vacuums body. It simply falls over to its side.The problem with this vacuum's design is that the bottom part of the cleaner's body is of smaller diameter combined with two supporting legs (part of the frame) are soft plastic and not leveled / long enough to keep the vacuum cleaner in upright position. It is easy fix but...still such small details are forgotten. So we all hear about power of suction, accessories and other crap about a product , but does it really is put to the test by people who designing it? Think about it !!!!

Great machine. Would give 5* if all floor tools & brushes matched up to its performance.
Have owned this vacuum for 7years and it still serves me well on tiles, carpet & rugs.
However, I find the attachment accessories to not be of nearly the same standard as the machine:
The hard floor brush especially, is of extremely poor quality with the brushes continually just unravelling. After two replacements, I abandoned & found a far superior spring loaded articulating brush elsewhere.
The gulper floor tool does a general clean up, but does not agitate to remove dust or hair- have greatly modified my gulper with some small bottle brus...

Best back pack Vacuum by far
Purchased my PacVac in 2007 and has been a great unit to date.
Its been used hours on end, day after day for domestic, commercial and even builders cleaning and never had an issue.
I have used other brands and models but will chose my Superpro 700 over any of them.
13 years on, I have noticed the suction is a little weaker then it once was but it still does a fantastic job.
I would like to buy another Superpro 700 soon and retire my current unit to home use only and see how much more life i can get out of it when it will only be used 2-4 times per week.
Purchased in February 2007.
This is awesome. The best vac I've ever used or owned.
This is such a versatile vacuum works great on any flooring except wet ofcourse. Honestly the best vacuum I've used by far my entire 38years. I haven't bought a new vacuum in 4-5 years

Why Can't I give this thing 6 stars??
After my Dyson DC23 (decent machine I must say) died after about 8 years of service, I was needing a new vacuum. Not wanting to spend $1000 on another pull along Dyson that would snag on everything and take random right and left hand turns when pulled straight, or a stick vac with half the suction and bin capacity as the previous Dyson, I cam on to Product Review and started to do some research. After deciding on a VacPac 700 Pro asking myself why I didn't think of an industrial vacuum before, seeing as I've used them in previous lives (namely ...Nilfisk). The result? Effortless, commercial grade build quality, suction, filtration and noise levels. No more snagging on furniture or wall corners. No more doing half the house and having to unplug and plug the cord somewhere else. Just strap in, turn on and you're locked and loaded to cut your vacuuming chore in half the time. Absolutely love it!! No idea why people don't go and buy what the professional cleaners use. Superior product at half the cost of domestic bells and whistles that cost you a bomb.I certainly know I have! Keep it up PacVac. Keep it up!
Purchased in January 2019 at CCS.
Used pacvac for over 6 years and wouldn't try anything else there are no other vacuums that come close to the overall quality and price of these machines. Highly recommend, out of about 8 vacuumsowned I've only needed to take any in for fixing once. Very pleased with the customer service I was provided with. Thankyou Pacvac.

I like pacvac
Had 7 pacvacs in the last 6 years. Great vacuums, I have tested various other makes and models and always go back to pacvac. Highly recommended. Keep up the good work.
Purchased in April 2019 at the goods for $1,300.00.
Dirty indoor building site: 5 mins losses suction as bag clogs ie not true cyclone. Not good for heavy fine dusts, plaster dusts, wood dusts etc, a big ask I know. Other than that a well made unit, earplugs a necessity because of proximity of motor to ears. Good suction with clean filter bag (to begin with!)
Purchased in July 2019.
Needs more R&D
Have a few battery Pacvac Battery SuperPro 700, its all starting to crap out. I presume it more the battery unit then the vacuum motor. I have a few first gen battery vacuums and they work really good, the second gen not so good
Purchased in April 2019.
Can't fault it
I've owned the Pacvac for a couple of years now, and can't fault it. Powerful, comfortable, and most importantly easy to use and maintain. Doesn't get caught around corners or furniture, we only have a small 3 bedroom house (but have a large hairy dog) and I can do the whole house without having to unplug - the 15m chord is a huge benefit (provided you know how to coil it without kinking!). The bag system is cheap and simple and reliable, but the best part is that items inadvertently sucked up can be easily retrieved! I can't figure out why this style of vacuum cleaner isn't more popular for domestic (as opposed to commercial users - who mostly use this style) use. Good value too.
Questions & Answers
Our motor just stopped. We are considering buying a new motor, but is fitting it something we can do? Or will it involve wires?
Thank you for your enquiry.
Whilst our machines are designed to be easily maintained, replacing the motor would require a person such as an electrician or by one of our many service agents to ensure it is correctly fitted.
