The Rugged Advantage bagless backpack is fitted with a powerful high suction vacuum motor that delivers exceptional cleaning, removing the finest dust and dirt from carpet and hard floors.
The vacuum uses patented swirl tube multi-cyclone technology to provide consistent vacuuming performance by reducing clogging; then with the addition of the EPA/HEPA Motor Filter, filtration is further improved, reducing emission to suite those with allergies.
The machine is premium quality, light weight, commercial construction and uses impact grade antibacterial plastics that resist dust adhesion, aid cleaning maintenance and prevents bacteria propagation.
The Advantage Turbo includes the Wessel-Werk TK284 turbo brush in the package. A turbo brush uses air from the vacuum motor, to provide brush agitation for more effective and efficient removal of dust, hair and fibre from carpet, without additional effort by the operator. Customized for high agitation the turbo brush grooms the carpet pile and provides dust removal from deep within the carpet pile, to provide a clean healthy carpet. The brush roller on the brush self-adjusts to small variations in carpet pile and bristle wear, enabling the tool to transition from carpet to hard floor without adjustment. Note: The turbo brush should not be used on wooden floors.
Advantage Turbo is also supplied with the highly versatile EZ2GO floor tool, which enables vacuuming under low profiles such as kick boards. It is particularly useful for the removal of large bulky materials, dust from carpet, and hard floors. The EZ2GO tool suits general purpose applications where daily vacuuming is provided and dirt build up in carpet is low.

CORRECT USE AND MAINTENANCE
1. Do not fill past the MAX level marked on the bin. 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.
2. Clean the Mesh Filter using the duster provided each time you empty the bin. Refer to the video.
3. The Motor Filter is located under the Bin. Remove Motor Filter cover to access. Clean the Motor Filter by rinsing both sides until the rinse water is clear in colour.
Re-use the filter when it is completely dry.
4. Please read the Instruction Manual supplied with the machine.
