The Model 1050 continuous duty industrial vacuum boasts 100 percent more filter area for increased efficiency, a unique atmospheric blowback system that allows filter cleaning with power on, larger wheels to deliver superior maneuverability, and reduced noise levels. Due to the unit’s maneuverability and suction, it can also be used as a portable central vacuum system with one, two or three operators using local tubing networks in multiple areas, supporting a couple hundred feet of tubing. Because the unit is moved to debris it uses less energy than a central vacuum system that requires more hp to move material farther, and costs around half of what a central vacuum system cost. The new atmospheric blowback system is able to have the motor continue running while users change out filled drums or hoppers. The front wheel diameter has increased from 10 inches to 14 inches, and the single 8 inch caster on the rear has been replaced with a duel 8 inch swivel caster, making the unit more maneuverable for a single operator.
