Hoover’s new line of upright commercial vacuums, the first to be introduced by the company in a number of years, features advanced technology to facilitate maintenance and maximize productivity.

Hoover now offers a new line of upright commercial vacuums, the first to be introduced by the company in a number of years. Called INSIGHT, the new line features advanced technology to facilitate maintenance and maximize productivity. The INSIGHT line consists of five models, two of which are now available.

“We monitored market trends and conducted extensive research among distributors, customers, end-users and competitors to deliver innovative features that address the unmet needs of the commercial market,” said Brad Nyholm, TTI Floor Care product manager commercial division. “Among the factors taken into account in developing the INSIGHT line were green initiatives established by LEEDS and CRI, high filtration requirements, noise levels, ease of maintenance, parts cost, productivity and reliability.”

            To address these factors, the following features are standard on all INSIGHT models: on-board diagnostics, HEPA filtration, auto-seal allergen bags, quick-change brush rolls, 50-ft. quick-change cords, patented WindTunnel™ technology, 13-in. and 15-in. cleaning paths and  tool-less assembly.

            The first two models, the CH50100 and CH50102, feature universal AC motors and LED on-board diagnostics to help users maximize the life of bags, filters and brush rolls for increased productivity and cost savings.  Both manual and auto height adjustment models are available.

Three additional models, available later in the year, will offer MagnaTorque™ brushless DC motors, the first to be offered by any manufacturer for commercial vacuums.  MagnaTorque motors provide more torque for increased power, greater efficiency, reliability and longer service life. They also offer a number of environmental benefits, including the elimination of carbon dust emissions for improved air quality and reduced noise levels.

In addition these models will offer on-board diagnostics, two of which will include an enhanced LCD diagnostic system known as Intelligent Design Technology (IDT), which communicates issues that may affect the performance of the vacuum and how to repair them.     TTI Floor Care conducted a brief field test to ensure the new vacuums can withstand the rigorous demands of commercial cleaning and to identify opportunities for improvement prior to launching them.
