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 !!!!
Purchased in July 2016 for $450.00.
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.
Questions & Answers
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?
How do you remove the hose from the pacvac glide 300 as there is no suction so might also need to know how to remove something that is stuck in there ?
Thank you for your enquiry.
We have two types of hose for the Glide 300, depending on the age of your machine, it should either unscrew or push in and turn to the left to remove.
The best way to check for a blockage is to disconnect the parts and drop a coin through. Please see the link below which will take you to a video that demonstrates this process for you.
To optimise the suction of the machine, it is important that you maintain it by cleaning the filter and changing the dust bags regularly, etc. For your convenience, here is a link to a video that demonstrates the key steps that you need to undertake to maintain your machine.
I hope that helps with your enquiry, but please don’t forget that we are always here to help, so please reach out to us at any time and we’ll happily assist you.
