Backpack Vacuum Cleaners


backpack vacuum

Backpack vacuums are modified canister vacuums custom designed to sit comfortably on the back of a user. Backpack vacuums are typically fitted with shoulder and waist straps to hold the vacuum securely in place enabling maximum mobility and ease of use. The motor is located in the bottom of the unit for a low center of gravity ensuring good balance and stability for the operator. As backpack vacuums are fitted closely to the body the units are equipped with sound dampening and cooling components to ensure comfort and safety.

Goodway Backpack Vacuums

The Goodway backpack vacuum (BP-100) offers superior mobility in a comfortable, easy to carry package. It is ideal for cleaning congested areas, stairs, aisles, seats, shelving and other places where using upright or canister vacuums would be cumbersome. Unlike other backpack vacuum cleaners, this unit is ergonomically designed to curve with the operator's lower back, distributing the vacuum's weight over the hips and the shoulders for a comfortable fit.

Backpack Vacuum Design and Safety

Old backpack vacuum models were widely known to create strain on an operator’s back due to poor design, weak straps and machine weight. Today’s backpack vacuums are designed with comfort in mind. Goodway’s ergonomic backpack vacuums distribute the weight evenly against the hips and shoulders. The lightweight machine is easy to carry and is designed to conform to the operator’s lower back. Using a backpack vacuum is now an optimal and safe way to clean in a variety of applications

The Goodway backpack vacuum cleaner is constructed of high impact, body-durable molded plastic for reliability and long life. Our backpack vacuum uses a two-stage or by-pass motor. By-pass motors are constructed so that the impeller housing is sealed and isolated from the motor housing. The motor housing has its own cooling fan which draws clean outside air into the motor housing, preventing the possibility of dirt getting into the motor and reducing the life of backpack vacuum. Although by-pass motors are more expensive, they are also more reliable and longer lasting.

The Goodway backpack vacuum cleaner can serve all of your different commercial vacuum cleaning applications when you need the convenience of a backpack vacuum. Additionally, Goodway provides certified HEPA filtration for its BPV-100H backpack vacuum.
