This vacuum cleaner delivers up to 105 cu. ft. per minute (CFM) of air flow and up to 98" of water lift, which is a measure of suction (the higher the lift, the greater the suction). A five-layer filter helps trap dust particles. A dial can be used to adjust the height of the cleaning head to any of four positions to suit the carpet or flooring. A brush roll sensor detects blockages and shuts off the motor automatically to help prevent damage to the vacuum cleaner. Lights indicate when the disposable vacuum bag needs to be replaced or a clog needs to be cleared. A detachable 40' power cord allows the user to vacuum areas without having to change outlets.

This product is suitable for use with Rubbermaid Commercial 9VMHBA12 disposable vacuum bags and a Rubbermaid Commercial 9VMHHP HEPA filter kit (each sold separately).Vacuum cleaners have electric motors that generate suction to remove dust, dirt, and debris from floors and other surfaces. The dirt is collected in a dust bag (either disposable or reusable), a cyclone, or another chamber for disposal. Intake and exhaust air is usually filtered to keep dust particles from clogging the motor or being released back into the air. HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) and ULPA (Ultra Low Penetration Air) filters are used for applications that require the filtration of very fine particles. Vacuum cleaners are available in a variety of styles, including upright vacuums, canister vacuums, backpack vacuums, and wet and dry vacuums. Vacuum cleaners may have residential, commercial, or industrial applications.Rubbermaid manufactures cleaning, organizing, and material handling products for commercial, medical, and industrial applications.
