Did you check 3 year warranty TMF vac?

You can get these for like 399 from a good Jan sand supplier

Ok, so most of you have no knowledge of a good UPRIGHT vacuum. Anyone here knowledgeable about UPRIGHT vacuums?
You're already using it lol. Stick to the sanitare. Its easily rebuilt and very tough. Just change out the impellers every now and then. They do wear down and they "hopsesly loosis suc-sin" as dyson says with an accent.

You can possibly do better!? I can't say how you spend your loot or where.

I ordered two 122483-00 vac motors a week ago from kleenrite and still don't have even a tracking number for it... but I order things months ahead of when I need them. Service after the sale would mean a lot to me if I was a start up vs. typically having 4 back up new and prematurely replaced parts on hand.

My TMF shipments so far are amazingly fast and up to the minute tracking.

I’d personally only buy a proteam used for the prices they are asking. Why not just buy a Windsor, Sebo, or other genuine dual motor vac. Windsor dual motor vacs can be had for much less then $500

Nah not taking about the online guys. I’m talking about local distributors like we have Kelsan here in town, then there’s dade paper, Home Depot pro services is now nation wide they have good pricing and good customer service. Usually like to deal with a local salesman so if something messes up you can talk to someone in town about it.

Not knocking TMF at all their products are great just pointing out a high price on a vacuum. Our local carpet cleaning distributor has that vacuum
For the same price as TMF. I’ve told them their price is high too.

I like my Koblenz Endurance. Simple, hard working, no filters to clean or change, and you can get bags that are their own hepa filter. Worst hell I ever put one through was sucking up about 80 pounds of drywall dust. Would never do again but it handled it like a champ.

I believe that they price match, so that might be a good thing if it was going to have to be shipped anyway.

I see a common theme with the 2 threads you posted: you ask a question and members reply but instead of appreciating the replies you are not happy.
My advice is to stop asking questions and use the search feature.

You cannot have a janitorial vacuum without a wand. Pro team or Windsor are by far your best vacuumes for janitorial. No question. They are tough enough for employees and work very well. Large bags, long cords, easy parts to replace..
In short, canister vacuum hijack. Are you using power head with yours?

Plastic satisfaction....It's a dirt grabber, literally. In commercial setting, you'll need 5 of them in one year, that's the downside, I guess .

Durable. We used this originally with Host. From then on it is used primarily for vacuuming before and after installation. I am not nice to this vacuum. I suck up not only the piles of carpet fibers. But also the chunks of carpet with backing still attached. I suck up drywall chunks, pad chunks, staples, saw dust, pieces of wood... unless you use it as a hammer it should hold up to anything. Including hanging it out a hotel window by its cord so it will untangle itself :D i did thst when i was about 14 years old on commercial job. Might be why the cord hook is missing idk. This vacuum is older then some of the people on this forum and still ticking. I honestly hate this vacuum. But it has proven itself in the durability department.

My parents Mountain summer cabin, I just looked up and saw this vacuum. I love my parents but they are as cheap as it gets and I’d rather never use the same tools.

Pro team upright 1500xp.

Fwiw that commercial sanitaire and the red dirt devil, also kirby were all beat by a $80 bissell clean view in my sode by side testing. Clean view had more suction and pulled significantly more fine dust.

Still i prefer proteam over all of them, kirbys are good but too heavy and no hose

Sebos are nice.

We have tons of pack packs and they have their place , but our main work horse is the new style Windsor Versematic 18". If you are doing large commercial offices it is what we like best, has a wand the is very easy to pull and use and is quiet , powerful, easy change brushes and paper bags, they are expensive no doubt about that but time is money , we have about 200 or the older blue Windsors and I am slowly replacing them with the new grey ones, at almost $800 a machine it is an expensive task but worth it for the quality job they produce. In my 47 year of doing this I like this one best.

Personally I really have never had any problems with
emerson/ PROTEAM Vacuums. ProGen is the newest and they work Very, Very well

Sorry...Their back pack vacuums are awesome too!

Did anyone had Shark Rotator True-Pet Vacuum? It comes up with washable filters, it's bagless and can clean all floor types. Well, I'm one of those who love to collect all of them. It is a corded upright vacuum that is basically used for heavy cleaning. Shark Rotator True-Pet Vacuum also comes with an LED light near the nozzle and the handle to guide your cleaning if its dark.
