In February, ProTeam attended the 2017 VDTA Convention and Show in Las Vegas to demo innovative products for vacuum dealers. The VDTA-SDTA is the association for independent floor care, sewing machine and quilt shop retailers. At the show, ProTeam Senior Regional Sales Manager Rich Stanley noted that the ProVac FS 6 backpack vacuum with Power Nozzle and the ProForce 1500XP upright vacuum drew the most interest from show attendees.
“Vacuum dealers need high-quality units that are both reliable and easy to repair and maintain,” said Stanley. “Both the ProVac and the ProForce excel in that area.”
The ProForce upright provides exceptional cleaning in a high-filtration upright to improve reach, durability, and soil removal. This top-of-the-line commercial vacuum is equipped with premium on-board tools and a HEPA media filter that captures many allergens and asthma triggers.
“Many visitors to the ProTeam booth had been using the ProForce 1500XP upright for years with great results,” said Stanley.
Stanley also demoed the ProVac FS 6 backpack vacuum with Power Nozzle. It marries the power and mobility of a backpack vacuum with the agitation of a brush roll. The unit was recently upgraded with a new FlexFit Articulating Harness with increased back and shoulder padding.
“People were impressed by the harness improvements and surprised by how comfortable the unit is when it is fit properly,” said Stanley.
“I spoke to a couple people who weren’t comfortable using a backpack before but changed their minds after they tried the new harness.”
The ProVac FS 6 cleans two to three times faster than an upright vacuum and is 43% more efficient at removing soil than an upright. In addition, a backpack vacuum has only 2 moving parts, the switch and the motor, reducing the need for maintenance and repairs.
