There are just too many surfaces you can clean effectively using the Rubbermaid Commercial Executive Series Backpack Vacuum Cleaner, 8-Amp, 6-quart right there after unpacking it. Like its name suggests, the vacuum cleaner comes with a backpack which facilitates what most reviewers have described as a hands free cleaning experience. You might want to note that the package is commercial grade but is actually being adopted more for domestic cleaning applications due to its agility and ease of operation. Below are brief insights into features which attract most attention and hence lure homeowners as well those haunted by office space cleaning woes into adopting it.
To start with, this cleaner was designed specifically for commercial spaces. Like it is obvious, the manufacture had to reduce its operational noise to low levels. Apparently, they achieved this feat noting that most of those who have had a hands-on couldn’t help but note that the cleaner’s levels of noise are so low that they won’t disrupt an accountant’s concentration. 66 dBA is perfect; managers won’t have to worry over the productivity of their workforces.
Apart from making it noiseless, another feat the manufacturer wanted to achieve was make the cleaner’s backpack bearable. Of course this was so that the package could be marketable as one which lets you maneuver around obstacles and logically, work on large spaces in less time. To achieve it, they seemingly went over their design options several times and settled on one which would spawn the lightest backpack.
The first feature which aids versatility is the cleaner’s flexible hose which is easily bent to reach tight spaces. The real deal is however in the cleaner’s tools. On delivery, you get a crevice tool, a floor tool, a dusting brush, aluminum wands and the crucial upholstery tool.
The Rubbermaid does not come with a battery which means its sucks power directly from an outlet while in operation. Most people have the perception that corded operation is inconveniencing but remember this is a commercial vacuum which is not only supposed to be agile but also light. From the manufacturer’s standpoint corded operation is not a
compromise but rather, a clever design which allows the cleaner to do what its owners love it for.
Still dwelling on the cord, it is 40 feet long and features hard-mounted cord restraint for durability which would otherwise be compromised by repeated strains.
– Quiet but powerful operation
– Lightweight and highly optimized for mobility citing the swivel hose which allows users to maneuver around obstacles
– Cleans a wide range of services from upholstery to hard floors
– Great ergonomics which befits people who intend to use it for long periods of time
– Some reviews lament that although the backpack is light and bearable; it is a bit large and takes too much storage space. Not a problem though if you have a focus on functionality.
Meager but notable features
For comfort, the backpack has adjustable straps which prevent it from moving on your back to maintain a balanced weight. Additionally, it has what the manufacturer calls an innovative frame design which is specifically meant to keep motor heat away from your body while operating it. If you are so serious about hygiene, this is probably your best bet considering that its sealed vacuum bags deter dust and allergens from escaping into the air after being collected.
