The Rugged Advantage bagless backpack vacuum cleaner is fitted with a powerful high suction vacuum motor that delivers exceptional cleaning.

The vacuum uses multi-cyclone filtration technology to provide consistent vacuuming
performance. The HEPA Motor Filter provides filtration efficiencies to that of a surgical mask.

The machine is premium quality, light weight, commercial construction and uses impact grade antibacterial plastics to resist dust adhesion, aid cleaning maintenance and prevent bacteria propagation.

Advantage is fitted with endurance sweat guarded tough nylon fabric covering, resilient foam padding, loop over frame contoured shoulder pads, hook and loop fastened back pad, and extra wide double stretch elastic hook and loop waist padding for added comfort, and tools free replacement.

The smart quick exchange cord restraint, reduces cord stretch.

The “crush proof”, smooth bore, antibacterial hose promotes air flow and eliminates smelly bacteria growth in the hose corrugations. The stainless-steel rods, resist corrosion and are lighter to use.

Advantage Turbo is supplied with a full complement of tools. The EZ2GO general purpose floor tool, is suitable for removal of large bulky materials on both carpet and hard floor. The TK 284 Turbo Brush floor tool grooms and agitates the carpet pile, removing dust deep in the carpet pile, and hair from the carpet surface. The 36cm wide hard floor tool is suitable for both tiled and timber floors. The tool provides a sweep action while vacuuming, and the brush bristles enables dust removal from tile grout lines.

Emptying the dust bin is a press of a button. Maintenance of Mesh Filter, is by wiping using the micro fibre duster. Motor filter maintenance is by tapping out loose dust, then rinsing for full refurbishment.

Advantage Turbo package suits applications with diverse range of floors, small light commercial applications, Shops, Offices, Home Cleaning, Apartments, Hotels, Motels, Strata Cleaning, Child Care centres, and domestic premises.

The Max level is marked below the perforated Mesh Filter in the back ground which forms the air path to the internal cyclones that provide fine dust filtration. The Mesh Filter must be kept clean at all times to ensure sufficient airflow for cyclonic filtration.
