Replace AV550 Unit with Newer Vacuum
Hello: Our house came with an AirVac AV550 (or 220, hard to read the label); i recently purchased an AirVac Deluxe kit from you guys to use with the CV. Now I am thinking of replacing this old unit because (1) it is noisy, (2) there seems to be no exhaust tube, so the fine dust is probably being vented into the garage, and (3) i am not sure if this CV is powereful enough.
Qustions I have is, (1) do i have to buy an AirVac replacement because I already purchased the AirVac Delux attachment kit, (2) what is the corresponding AirVac new model to replace my old AV550, (3) i am reading multiple reviews about type of CVs, tornado, bag, bagless, etc., what in your opinion is the best option (I can add a vent to funnel the dust outside the garage if needed). Thx
Your vacuum can be replaced and used with all the existing pipe, wire, hose and tools you have. Today's basic vacuums are 50% more powerful than the 550. We suggest the M85 Flo-Master or S44 SilentMaster. Our opinion is a top emptying vacuum with a disposable bag is best. The trash compacts at the bottom of the bag instead of swireling around and embedding itself on a permanent filter or screen. The suggested vacuums are sold by dealers near you that you can find on our dealer locator.
