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.
Really good unit
Sturdy, comfortable, efficient Industrial unit with HEPA filter. Spare parts (bags and filters) easy to get and inexpensive. Great if you want to do the whole house in one go. No nonsense and no frilly bits, just good clean(ing) operation. Would recommend to anyone, can even make vacuuming the car a lot easier!
I like this vac very much.
I use this vac daily and it is the easiest so far. We have a country house with hard floors and 4 wood fires. This machine is simple and uncomplicated. As powerful as a Kirby or Dyson. I find it quick and ergonomic. Comfortable to wear on your back once it is on there. Light in your hand. Easy to use. Powerful suction and easy and light floor head - great around/under furniture. Quite inexpensive (I paid $278 for mine). Easy to service yourself - 5 mins tops. It is simple. I love the long cord that reaches the whole house. I have used this commercially and domestically and it makes light work of cleaning. If you have stairs it is perfect. I have used many top brands which have been great but they all are heavier and have short cords and I don't like pull alongs or uprights any more. This straps on your back, light in the hand and off you go. It is easy to empty the dirt bag and clean the filters.
For the commercial work on carpet I also have the powerhead that kind of drives itself. Heavy duty. Simple to use. I paid extra for this - can't remember how much but it was worth it. I use it on my rugs at home.
For storage, I put coat hooks into the back of my cupboard and I hang it up out of the way. I look after the cord by hanging over the vac using long draping loops because I don't want to put kinks into the cord.
I like this above the following brands which I have had. Vax (loved it had it for 17 years but too short cord and pull along annoying around furniture up/down stairs). Shark (too complicated and heavy - sent it back within 30 days). Kirby very well made (way too heavy & expensive). Electrolux (didn't last long broke down). Dyson both pull along and stick (great but again pull along and annoying & the stick batteries not enough to do my house annoying having to have recharging areas) .
Suction is great. Floor tool has goblin head which is very handy for doing corners, as long as I keep it clean. Very easy to manoeuvre around the house and cord is great and doesn't kink. I use replaceable paper bags inside the cloth bag and haven't needed to wash the cloth bag ever. Very easy to wear, has two sets of straps, one for waits and one for chest, only don't bend down too far as it may move up and above your head. Great storage and hasn't let me down in over 5 years of use. Note: don't use in wet areas as you may damage the motor!
Still too heavy
I find backpacks are still made too heavy. All the technology we have and they can't make them more ergonomical. Other than that its a very good vac. Packs up nicely to transport, sucks up continuously very well no matter how full it is. The straps are very comfortable on your back but again it would be great 1.5 kg lighter.
My kids love this machine
We have lots of carpet and floor. I've spent years cajoling the five kids into vacuuming various areas - carrots and sticks. We have had drag-behind and upright cleaners galore. Then two years ago, the cleaner at my work said to try PacVac Superpro (which he was using). I love it - watched the whole video about how to use it, fishtail method etc. Made the kids watch it to. They all wanted to try it and ever since, two of them happily vacuum regularly. As do I. Much easier than drag behinds. Only problem now is we can't find the floor attachment and pipe, somehow we have lost them. So currently not so much fun. But a minor problem - overall it's been great.
THE BEST Vacuum Cleaner
We have had this vacuum for 3 years now and we are very happy it. We only use it in our small house (carpet and lino) but it has strong suction and we find the back pac vacuum versions so easy to use. This one is very comfortable. It's easy to clean, and easy to order replacement bags cheaply online. When it comes to vacuuming (Ugh), why would anyone try to save money on something that doesn't work well? This Superpro is well worth the extra money, even for home use. It makes vacuuming as good as doing the vacuuming ever can be.
We now have three of these
We now have three units. As a small commercial cleaning business with our main focus around office blocks and very busy restaurants -- these units are simply the most reliable -- they are in use every day for a minimum of 10 hours each and they just continue going. Spares are freely available and does not break the bank. The motor just goes and goes. Get the by-pass motor unit for occasional moist floors such a restaurants. Highly recommended and we will simply not buy anything else -- ever.
Simply the best vacuum i have ever used.
I have owned for a year now and I can say that this is the best vacuum I have ever used. WARNING do not waste your money on a Dyson, you will regret it. It's quiet and super powerful. I have accidentally sucked up large pieces of clothing off the floor! When the kids hear it turn on, they scatter to pick up all their toys off the ground, as they know of the supreme toy eating power this instrument yields. It just works! What more can I say? Buy one right now! Buy one for every family member you know! If you can afford to, buy some for other people who are trapped in thinking that their Miele or Dyson is superior! We need a cleaning cultural revolution! Hazaar!
I have used many vacuums, but Pacvac is the only one which stand out from other, it is because it does job so easy. the quality is great. Easy to change bags. i am using this vacuum almost every day. if i could not found Pacvac, i fill like job going to be hard for me.
This product is excellent. Hands free to pickup with one hand and suck up with another. Best Vacuum I've ever had and I've had them all. I slap it on my back starting from one corner upstairs and keep on going downstairs. Suction is sooooo goood you have to let a bit of air in for carpets. Extremely happy :) Best wedding gift ever!
A perfect Vacuum cleaner for professional cleaner..
The amazing vacuum cleaner I have seen in last two years of my cleaning experience. The suction is amazing easy to operate even under bed, sofa as well..It is suitable for any type of floors and just because of this vacuum cleaner, I got some cleaning jobs and regular clients.
9 moths the dead and handle-stick break and more
I got mine via ebay March 2016, then 4 months ago i needed to buy a new head part (floor part) as the wheels werent rolling and breaking. the handle part was also breaking from wear and tear so fast. At 4 month old the new parts are even worse agin. and my hose is also snapped in a part. The cord get knotted every time i try to roll it up. and has also 2 parts of that breaking too. Basically need new vacuum.. the parts be too expensive every 6 months to replace.... sad, as it is a comfy back pack but the quality of hose and floor part is terrible...
VACPAC YOUR THE GREATEST
VACPAC are the very best vacuum cleaner I've ever had the pleasure of using, they are comfortable on you back and have extremely powerful suction. I used one for mainly commercial use, without any real problems for eighteen (18) years. And would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a hard working vacuum.
Happy Wife, Happy Life!!!
We have had this vacuum for nearly 1 Year now. I will be the first to admin that my wife does all the vacuuming in our house. She used this model vacuum when working for a short time as a school cleaner and loved it. It is not too heavy and the padding on the back and shoulder straps are really good. My wife finds it so easy to clean the house with this on her back compared to dragging a vacuum cleaner from room to room. I have only used it a few times but the suction is great.
Superpro 700 Duo...Wow factor!....compared to other vacuums I have owned.
This is a review for a duo model (ability to suck up some moisture without damaging the machine). First use today. Wow was the first word that came out of my mouth after 15 seconds and still the same 30mins later! The suction was amazing compared to any other unit I have owned - including ones with turbo heads to get the extra suction. I used it on carpet and tiles in a 230m sq house. It runs rings around my 5 year old Miele drag-around vac that cost more than this. Backpack set up is far superior than dragging the Miele around the floors. It was not heavy to walk around with. (I am 167 and 59kgs). Extra long cord is a bonus. Downside for me was where the accessories are stored on the side of the hip wrap towards the back.....when I was putting the unit on my back they kept popping out. I can live with that tho' as the performance and otherwise ease of use compensates. It is as loud as my old expensive Miele vac which is not overly loud. Extremely easy to manouver around and under furniture. Good suction into corners and along skirting boards. My only criticism/suggestion is that the accessories storage is more towards the front rather than at the back so I can reach them more easily and they don't pop out when I am slinging the unit onto my back.
We're so glad we bought this
We were utterly sick of pull behind cannister vacuum cleaners at home. One day I was watching a cleaner vacuum out a restaurant and he used a backpack vacuum. It looked effortless. We ended up buying the Pacvac based on reviews we have read.
For domestic use, these things are brilliant. With its extra long chord, and the fact that you don't have to stop every 10 seconds to pull the canister unit along, or move it around chairs, we can do the whole house in half the time it took with our old vac. No kidding - half the time. Also, you're not damaging your precious furniture. The unit itself is easy to put on and isn't excessively heavy. Suction is very strong and the suction hose and accessories have lasted well without any breakages after over a year of use. Emptying the bag is simple and we get about 4 uses before we have to change the paper bag and dozens of uses before we have to clean the felt bag. Bags are not expensive. We have no real complaints other than it's difficult to vacuum the car with one of these.
We both highly recommend this unit. You won't be sorry, especially if you have lots of furniture in your place that you have to manoeuvre around.
2nd Pacvac in as many years
I am a cleaner and run my own business, the vac gets a pretty hard work out averaging 3-5 hours per day but nevertheless I would expect it to last longer than this. I purchased the Superpro 700 in January this year, today it simply stopped working! I find it to be very loud, I actually use earmuffs as it so loud as well as being quite heavy. Overall I am not very happy with it and will be looking at another brand to replace this one.
One of the best machines for commerical or household use
I have used my Pacvac in a commercial environment for around 3 years and I've only had to replace the hose and foot recently. The machine is a very comfortable fit with the belts that go around your waist assisting in supporting your back. Because you are carrying the machine on your back, you can complete the job a lot quicker than a cumbersome floor machine that you need to pull constantly. I use a 20 metre extension on mine which covers a large house, even going upstairs to vacuum top floor when plugged in downstairs. My motor is still going okay and I do have wear and tear on the shoulder straps, but this is to be expected (they are well made with thick pads when new). I use a lot of different machines in my business and the Pacvac is one of my favourite vacuums for use at home or in a commercial environment!
only lasted 2 years and 10 months
I purchased two of these for a small cleaning business that i run. They get used 30 minutes a day 364 days a year. Even though I thought they were a good machine i would expect the motor not to die within 9 months of the warranty running out.Belts on the harness also wore quickly
