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...

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!

Questions & Answers
Can I wash the filter BASKET in the Pacvac?. It’s dirty and I’ve tried blowing out the dust but still dirty.
Hi Beaming L,
Thank you for your question, it’s great to see as keeping a clean dust bag (and filter) enhances the longevity of your machine and ensures optimal airflow/suction.
We provide a spare dust bag in the box when you purchase your vacuum to provide convenient cleaning, so in effect you can give the dirty dust bag a good shake out and then vacuum it clean, with the spare dust bag in place.
Alternatively, you can wash these reusable SMS dust bags, however you must ensure you are very thorough in washing as any dust / dirt left to dry after washing may clog the pores of the bag, not allowing the air to pass through effectively. It’s equally important that the dust bag is thoroughly dry before putting it back into the machine.
If you have been using the same reusable dust bag for some time, we do recommend replacing them with new ones if it appears the worst for wear.
If you are located within Australia, you can purchase a replacement dust bag through our online store via this link https://shop.pacvac.com/au/reusable-sms-cone-dust-bag-5l-grey , or from one of our stockists.
For more safety and maintenance tips on Pacvac machines, you can visit the Pacvac Academy at https://academy.pacvac.com/ where we provide short to the point video tutorials on your vacuum cleaner.
I hope this is helpful to you, please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any further questions about our product/s.
Hope you have a great day!
Unit has always worked very well, but for some reason our Pacvac superpro has lost its suction. The motor sounds like it is working fine, we have cleaned the dust bag and filter and have also checked for pipe blockages. Any ideas as to what the problem might be!
Thank you for your enquiry, we’re thrilled you love our Superpro 700!
There could potentially be a blockage in the bent end handle piece, which we have a simple trick to check.
Remove the handle piece from the hose, and drop a 10 cent coin down one end.
If the coin doesn't come out of the other end there's a blockage, if it does then there may be another issue.
If this is the case could you please advise your location so we could connect you with your closest service outlet?
Please don't hesitate to reach out directly to us if you need any further help!
Just bought the superpro pacvac 700 battery for $1490
The suction was a big different compared with the electric cable pacvac
My question is those 2 vaccums are produced same amount of power suction?
Please help thanks
Thank you for your enquiry!
Using a corded Pacvac machine will give a more powerful suction of 38 litres per second at 240v, which is why it’s ideal for deep cleaning.
Our battery machines like the Superpro run on 36v with suction of 33 litres per second, making them perfect maintenance units, where you get a quick, hassle free clean without any cords and having to locate power.
I hope this answers your question, if there’s anything further I can do to help please let me know!
Can cloth dust bags be washed and if so what do you recommend is the best process?
You can certainly wash the vacuum bags!
Place into a delicates bag inside out after emptying and beating out the fine dust.
Pop into the washing machine and run on a hand wash cycle using your regular detergent (40°C MAX).
This can also be done with the HEPA filter. I do this weekly
