Productivity and Ergonomics
This innovative yet user-friendly product is lightweight fixing the common problem of limited mobility in an upright vacuum. With difficulty reaching behind, around and under furniture, a cordless backpack is just what customers needed. The Super Coach Pro series includes a maneuverable wand and floor kit, making those tiny creases easier to reach. You’re cleaning up to 3x faster compared to a traditional upright and increasing efficiency by 30%. You’re not only reducing the repetitive back and forth strains on your body, but less stress is caused because larger muscle groups are being used. To be exact, there is 20% less pressure on the body compared to a standard harness.

Indoor air quality
Seeing that the average American spends roughly 90% of their time indoors, it’s important that vacuuming keeps the air clean and you healthy. Proteam’s Super Coach Pro series contain a HEPA filter, which is at least 99.97% effective in filtering particles 0.3 microns or larger. Completely cleaning carpets and hard surfaces, not just moving the dust to a different location. Total, this four-level filtration system includes:
1. Intercept Micro Filter – which is reusable is some units
2. Micro Cloth Filter – Captures any dust that may have escaped passed the first filter.
3. Dome Filter – A plastic cage with a foam filter. Protects the motor.
4. HEPA Filter – Reduces emissions and captures any dust from motor.
What are the most important points from this?
- The air stays cleaner, leaving no microscopic particles or carbon dust behind.
- It’s lightweight and innovative design is comfortable to use.
- The product pays for itself within a few uses.
