Pulse-Bac has introduced another new concept to the world of dust collection with their new line of HPLM (High Performance Low Mass) vacuums. HPLM vacuums are designed to have the highest power to weight ratio available. This new line of vacuums delivers very high suction while working on a lightweight platform that is designed to be easily transported. The 3690, the first unit to be released in the line, delivers 690 CFM with 110 inches of H2O lift and weighs in at only 208 pounds. By comparison that’s about 70 percent lighter than most vacuums with similar suction power. The unique design utilizes a high strength framework of steel tubing to lighten the load, with a 3-motor power plant that produces the big performance numbers the unit touts.
The light weight and high CFM make the HPLM units compelling, but in addition to performance, they also have features to make dust collection easier. One of these useful features is a wireless remote. The 3690 is built on a larger version of the popular Revolution 360 bagger frame, allowing it to easily fit through a 36-inch doorway. The new standing dump valve uses the same Easy Empty system found on the 1000 Series Pulse-Bac bagger, but as an added bonus this one can also use the Longo-Pac endless bagging system. Plus like all Pulse-Bac vacuums the HPLM line uses the patented Pulse-Bac self-cleaning technology that redefined the standard for jobsite dust collection a decade ago.
