Sanitaire's SC9050B Commercial Upright Vacuum Makes Light Work Of Heavy-Duty Cleaning
Charlotte, N.C. - Sanitaire introduces the optimized SC9050B Lightweight Commercial Upright vacuum designed to handle the demanding commercial cleaning environment with ease. Built for hotels, schools, hospitals and office buildings, the SC9050B features a more durable design in a lightweight, easy-to-maneuver frame.
“Professional cleaners require vacuums that offer superior strength and maximum performance day in and day out,” said David Parkes, general manager of the Sanitaire Brand. “The SC9050B is a lightweight vacuum designed, engineered and built to last, resulting in a lower cost of ownership. We want our customers to focus on cleaning – not fixing or, worse, replacing – an essential tool for their business.”
The vacuum frame is made of magnesium, a resilient metal that is 75 percent lighter than steel and 33 percent lighter than aluminum. Magnesium offers dimensional stability, strength and anti-corrosion properties for a lightweight but powerful combination.
In addition, a new detent assembly allows users to place their foot on the vacuum hood and release the vacuum from the upright position without use of the foot pedal. Ribs on the bag support were extended to strengthen the design of the vacuum and increase suction power.
“The SC9050B combines a sleek design and tough frame with the advanced filtration and cleaning performance that all Sanitaire products offer,” added Parkes. “It’s an ideal choice for commercial cleaners, especially those in the hospitality industry, who need a streamlined, durable tool that’s easy to transport from room to room.”
Knowing that commercial cleaners need tools that are easy to maintain, the SC9050B features a quick change power cord and belt that can be changed without using any tools, and many of its parts, including the motor, brushroll and belt, are interchangeable with other Sanitaire models. A dual-zipper, easy-access bag brings convenience to daily maintenance.
Users also will appreciate a unique plug that accepts a lighter, 18 gauge 2 wire cord. A damaged cord can be replaced easily and quickly by simply popping the plug onto a new cord.
Sanitaire’s SC9050B earned the Carpet & Rug Institute (CRI) Seal of Approval and has passed stringent testing for soil removal, dust containment and carpet appearance retention.
The SC9050B Lightweight Upright is available nationwide June 25 and will retail for $275. For additional information, visit www.sanitairevac.com.
