Equipped to operate with power tools, this device seduces by its regular aspiration, efficient and without dust discharges.

Construction vacuum cleaner


Main advantage of this vacuum cleaner: it is equipped with an unclogging system ("Autoclean") that cleans the filter every 10 seconds. Three types of apparatus are proposed, corresponding to the categories of quantity of dust per volume of air classified according to the "limit value of occupational exposure" (OEL): degree of harmfulness low (Low or L), medium (Medium or M ) and high (High or H). The vacuum cleaner tested is intended for conventional construction sites such as the removal of plaster or tile adhesive (class L). The range also includes a device suitable for mineral and wood dust (class M), and a vacuum cleaner dedicated to hazardous dust, asbestos type (class H).

Getting started

Three control buttons activate the start, the suction flow and the automatic cleaning of the filter. The built-in socket is for connecting a power tool. For optimum performance - and clean air - it is recommended to always use the unit with a filter bag (rubble). For the aspiration of liquids, the tank must be empty (without bag).

In use

The compact shape of the device gives it good stability. It's easy to handle thanks to its large rear wheels, small front swivel wheels and large retractable handle. Every 10 seconds, a dry tap indicates the start of the unclogging system. The suction vacuum is high and steady. Small rubble, metal residues, sawdust, plaster dust... are swallowed effortlessly. During suction, no backflow of dust or rejection of particles. But it is essential to use a dust bag (41 € for 5) for the device to filter effectively... In suction mode of liquid, two dry sensors automatically stop the engine when the tank is full.
