Commercial Vacuum Buying Advice Original Message Nov 12, 2012 2:08 pm
Hi, I am in charge of maintenance at a fraternity and am looking to buy vacuums to replace the old ones. Currently we have two Aerus Electrolux commercial vacuums which have worked pretty well, though they are now hanging on to their last threads of life. I'm looking to buy similar replacements, but I wanted to see if anyone knew of other brands/models that would work well. We use the vacuums a decent amount and they need to be able to take abuse (such as vacuuming up screws and banging into walls) and preferably have a wider head. Price isn't too much of an issue - I am more concerned with getting a quality product that will last a long time. Any comments/tips/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The Aerus Commercial Upright is a very good unit. They keep improving brushrolls and suction motors. They are very sturdy and easy to maintain. I have many customers that keep coming back because of the way they hold up. Many of the commercials that I have seen from competition don't change what they sell. They just go old school. With the carpets that have changed thru the years Vacuums change.Procare
for commercial use i would recommend the pro care 15 commercial vacuum. It's a heavy duty two motor machine that used to be manufactured by electrolux. It's a sturdy build and is fairly quite while running. Also the bag change is very simple and it has a fully automatic carpet height adjustment. The pro care also comes with a built in "performance indicator", alerting you of a full filter, jammed brush roll, air flow restriction, and things like that. It is a very solid vacuum made for commercial use.
