Award-winning battery vacuum takes cordless cleaning further
The commercial cleaning sector's first cordless upright vacuum returned to Interclean with a new feature for clients seeking the ultimate in daytime cleaning freedom. Gliding smoothly between carpets and hard floors and no need to plug and unplug, the Valet Battery Upright made the daily vacuuming routine easier than ever.
The next generation battery upright, the VBUII, will be available later this year and boasts a removable battery, allowing the operator to quickly double its running time of more than 50 minutes.
Light yet powerful, this cordless vacuum is ideal for quiet and unobtrusive cleaning around obstacles and occupants, without the hassle and risk of a trailing cable. Weighing just 5kg, the VBUII can easily be carried from one vacuuming task to the next.
But this is a robust machine designed to produce excellent cleaning results.
The 43.8V lithium ion battery delivers 312W of vacuum motor power and a 3,000rpm brush speed. Filtration performance is similarly high thanks to its HEPA 13 media bag.
A squeegee improves the pick-up of grit and fine abrasive particles on hard floors, while the cleaning head adjusts automatically between surfaces. The VBUII also has an edge cleaning feature to boost efficiency further, and maintains full suction when laid flat to clean under furniture.
Operators will also find the machine easy to use, due not least to the comfortable hand grip. A battery level indicator ensures the user knows when their machine will need re-charging - or a quick battery swop.
