I bought a hand vac last summer for the purpose of cleaning out sliding tracks but never used it until the last couple of weeks. I’ve got to admit that I love the results and the customers are incredibly impressed.
The next step is to add this into the price.

I have a ProTeam Super CoachVac Backpack (first purchased for whole-house CCU floor cleaning) that I have used for CCU windows where indoor ladder work was required for high windows with ledges – for safety (hands-free climbing) reasons.
But, I would find it too unwieldy for standard track cleaning use.
I noticed this after the fact. It’s one of those words that I always have to double check. Unfortunately, the spell check here only seems to work in the [B]post[/B] section but not in the [B]subject[/B] section.
I use a blue “giant tooth brush” with black bristles and a Pro team Quartervac backpack vac. I have both hands free to work and climbing ladders to reach uppers is no problem…It impresses people when I bring it into the house because most customers have never seen one
It was the only model they were making back in the early 90’s when I bought it. I have replaced the fan motor twice and the top piece once when I cracked it by carrying by the hose nipple…and I replaced the original hose with a longer piece I bought at a local vac shop. The only issue I have had with the tailvac is the cylinder is small and I got debris “blow thru” and I thought the fan motor was too small. However, in all fairness, I haven’t used one in several years and have not looked at the newer models, so my issues could already be resolved
