Does anyone know anything about this machine? I believe it's distributed by Kent.

I picked up a used one a while ago for cleaning up after tenants. I could hardly find any information about it outside of the marketing copy from the vacuum store websites. From the looks of it, it's sold primarily for environmental cleanup; lead and asbestos dust removal, etc.

To that end, the UZ934H hepa model is advertised as having all sorts of certifications for its hepa filtering. It's completely sealed and has a large surface area hepa filter. The vacuum itself is not that powerful; it clocks in at 66 CFM and 91" water lift. Not that impressive, but is this vacuum more touted for its filtering than its raw power? Oddly enough, there is a non-hepa filtered version of this machine. It makes me wonder why anyone would choose it over a more powerful vacuum if not for the certified hepa filtration.

There is no power port for a power nozzle, only straight suction attachments and a turbo head.

does any one know anything about this machine? Given it's environmental cleanup pedigree, I'm tempted to reserve it for picking up mouse and rat poops from hard to access attics and crawl spaces, and any known situation where there's lead or asbestos dust, like cleaning around ancient central heaters in some of the older houses.

What do you think?

Hi sanifan,

Your cleaner also sells under the Nilfisk brand which has always supplied a line of very practical no-frills durable machines that are good around the house or in public venues. Nilfisk also makes other highly specialized vacuums.

I have owned two Nilfisks, the MS 80 and the 90. It wasn't about high power but that they got the job done. I bought an electrified hose and electric supply adapter for mine and was able to use a PN.

As well, in comparison to vacuums the same size, they were very good at air filtration plus there were options that upped their filtering even more.

Your cleaner uses a 10 liter disposable bag but I wanted to note that this model is not intended for hazardous material clean-up. I've inserted a link below you can get specs plus use the "downloads" tab to look at the machine's user guide.

This machine is....

sold through Jeff Campbell and the Clean Team's website as "The Big Vac"
Cannot imagine it would do much on plush wall-to-wall carpet.

@ tebor

Its quite good with a decent pn. we used them in office cleaning due to there large bag capacity and super quiet design. They also lasted a very long time and the models I had used a dommel double stage motor not the super high rpm single stage motors that most other machines in its price range used>

How do you...

add a P/N w/o a jack for it on the machine? Doesn't adding one void the warranty?

@Trebor . . .

The company often has kits for that purpose. My Nilfisks did not have PN jacks. Because the power cord was detachable on both cleaners you could first plug in a feed cord for the electrified hose and PN and then plug the main power cord into it.

It wasn't a fancy arrangement but worked well. The Eureka-clone PN that came with mine was a wonder unto itself though I also used a Lindhaus PN.

I'm glad you've had good luck with this machine. This vac is targeted to such a specialized market that it's hard to find any user reviews online. Thanks for your input.

Despite the low airflow specs, it looks like the UZ934 is a reliable, quiet, long lasting, good capacity, well filtered vac that performs well with a power nozzle and gets the job done. Sound like a keeper!

I'll look to see if it has a power jack. I assume that it did 't but I'll take a closer look. I like the form factor and the way it handles a lot. Now if only the hepa filter didn't cost over $80 to replace!

"Venson I still have my gs 80 what a machine , quiet and still sucks fairly well. the new versions have a powerful motor"

That's fantastic! My GS 80 was in great shape but I opted to do what I thought would be a good deed. A neighbor and friend of mine in New York owned the small laundromat just across the street from my apartment. He asked me where he could find a good vacuum because all the one's he'd bought and used broke down quickly.

A light should have switched on but I gave him the GS 80 stating quite clearly, "IF you take care of this machine it will last you a long time." In one ear and out the other. Even with my careful instruction as to its use and care it was near demolished in just a few months. My rule now is, ask me for anything -- including blood -- but don't ask for my vacuum cleaner.
