The key feature of the 5L capacity Advantage MegaPro bagless cyclonic backpack vacuum cleaner is the 38cm wide Mega Gulper Pro floor tool. Vacuuming with the Mega Pro is 30% faster because the floor tool provides extra coverage. It has the highest dirt pickup rate (g/hr) of all the floor tools in the Advantage vacuum range. The Mega Pro Gulper floor tool is suitable for removing large bulky materials on carpet and hard floors.

Motor Performance and Blockage Protection

Bagless multi-cyclone technology and a powerful 1450W high-efficiency vacuum motor minimize losses associated with clogging filter bags and weaker motors, providing lasting top-cleaning performance.

The vacuum motor uses single turbine blades in a flow-through configuration to deliver high-efficiency performance. High efficiency means reduced heat emission from the motor, and high airflow is essential for good vacuum cleaning.

The vacuum uses a thermal switch to protect the engine from overheating during blockages or clogged filters. Thermal protection ensures safety and reliability even in the most challenging applications.

Ergonomics, Frame, and Harness

The frame construction uses lightweight impact-grade plastics. The padding has endurance sweat guard tough fabric covering, resilient foam padding, loop over-frame contoured, wide, comfort shoulder pads, vertical and laterally adjustable sternum strap, Hook and Loop zip-up back pad, and extra wide double stretch elastic hook and loop waist padding with onboard tool holders. Fitting of all replacement padding is tools-free.

Features and Benefits: Filters, Vacuum Hose, Rods, Tools, Power Outlets and Package

Advantage MegaPro has many quality items,

  • The quick exchange cord restraint reduces cord stretch.
  • The Inner bin and bin lid use impact-grade plastics with antimicrobial additives to arrest microbe propagation.
  • Bin emptying is just a press of a button and is very simple.
  • The HEPA Motor filter minimizes dust emissions, providing clean, healthy exhaust air.
  • The electrochemical etching process for manufacturing the stainless Mesh Filter produces a burr-free surface for easy cleaning. Wipe clean the filter surface with the microfibre duster provided.
  • Stainless steel rods are light and provide corrosion protection when in storage with cleaning chemicals.
  • The vacuum cleaner has a smooth bore hose to promote airflow. The thick wall provides “crush-proof” properties suites commercial use. The antimicrobial additives in the hose kill microbes trapped in the convolutions, providing odor control.
  • The 38cm wide MegaPro Floor Tool is a versatile commercial low-profile tool that removes bulky materials on carpet and hard floors.
  • The 36cm wide Hard Floor Tool suits tiled and timber floors. It sweeps while vacuuming, and the brush bristles remove dust from tile grout lines and floor surfaces.
  • The swivel neck Dusting Brush is also helpful in vacuuming cornices, wall corners, and horizontal and vertical surfaces.
  • The slotted Crevice Tool is ideal for vacuuming hard-to-reach spaces, preventing front-on-nozzle blockage.
  • The Upholstery Tool suits vacuuming fabric sofa lounges or narrow spaces.
  • The package includes 10 Motor Filters that can be maintained by rinsing.

General Applications

Advantage Mega Pro is suitable for vacuuming medium-sized light commercial premises, domestic premises, shops, offices, home cleaning, apartments, hotels, motels, strata cleaning, child care centers, and corporate areas.

    Advantage review
    OMG I love this vacuum it’s so easy to use and easy to empty. I clean commercial sites plus homes and this vacuum does the job. The delivery was extremely fast . Thank you Thibor

  4. Amanda

    Great vacuum cleaner
    I purchased the Rugged backpack vacuum cleaner to replace my Pullman drum vacuum which died and was ridiculously expensive to repair. The backpack cyclone option is so easy to use and empty. The extra long electrical cable makes it great to work in large areas. I clean big homes and have the vacuum in use for up to 2 to 2.5 hours at a time. I love that I can get around with ease in any home and transporting from my car to the job it’s always on my back…..too easy! Incredible value for your money.

  5. Leigh

    Great Value For Money
    Great light machine, handy for both large open and call centre environments in commercial setting. Our unit is used to clean 2000m3 every second night. Older filters get about 3-4 uses when washed out but be prepared to change filters regularly to maintain power and suction. Easy to clean and if looked after maintains suction and power. Company have been great to deal with and consumables and parts are easy to order and arrive in a timely manner.

  6. Isobel Knight

    Love ,love this vacuum cleaner
    What can I say I just Love this vacuum cleaner it is so quiet, light weight, easy to clean, NO more dirty bags to deal with,it has the most comfortable harness where you can attach all your tools.
    You can have as a right handed vacuum or a left handed vacuum by turning the barrel around to suite your needs, also their customer services is very helpful with any problems you have.
    As a cleaner in a very busy Kindergarten I would recommend this vacuum cleaner.

  7. Margy

    Simply the best!
    My family bought it as a gift for me…by far this is the best, I use it for our home, it picks up everything including all the cat hair and dust. We have wooden floors and carpet and it works brilliant on both. The sucction is amazing and the backpack style helps me to manage my bad back as Im not constantly bending over. The long cord, multiple heads, the numerous removable filters it comes with is bonus AND the approachable, communicable, thoughtful and helpful customer service has been the icing on the cake. Im over the moon with this product and highly recommend it to everyone for either home or work. Move over Dyson, there is a new kid on the block!!! Thank you Rugged Industries for a superior product.

    Advantage Classic Bagless Back Pack Vacuum Cleaner has a WOW factor
    Hi Team at Rugged Industries
    I would like to thank you so very much for the best back pack vacuum. We have been on the hunt to find new back pack vacuums for our housekeeping staff. I am so pleased that we found your bagless backpack vacuum. This vacuum certainly ticks all the boxes and has exceeded our expectations for our cleaning requirements. We can even go so far as to say this machine has the WOW factor. We cannot thank you enough for providing the perfect equipment for our housekeeping requirements for our holiday apartments. I strongly recommend this vacuum to anyone and that you will not have any regrets. Your support during and after our purchase process has also been above and beyond so thank you all so very much. regards Narelle.

  9. Terry Olden

    I Love it!
    I just wish to say that of all the companies I have ever used this one has been amazing, to say they went above and beyond is is an understatement!
    The initial advantage bagless I bought had some issues but with the new filtering system and motor it is awesome, the suction is super strong and emptying the container is easy and the cleaning wand gets anything left behind.
    I am now a very satisfied domestic cleaner and it serves me well, I love it!

  10. Richard

    Vacuuming now less of a chore
    For some time I have wanted an environmentally friendly bagless, backpack vacuum cleaner & I’m very happy with my new Rugged Advantage machine. It is light & the harness with its wide elastic Velcro waist strap is very comfortable. Suction is excellent & it is quiet. It is so much easier cleaning around furniture, ceilings & stairs, than with a drag-along machine. If people find the cord a bit long for domestic use, it can easily be exchanged for a shorter extension cord. Emptying & cleaning the canister is easy, but best done outside as it can naturally be a bit of a dusty process. The company have been very good to deal with & I’m happy to recommend this machine to other reluctant vacuumers!

  11. Mary PaunovicHappy customer

    Happy customer
    I would like to thank you for your great vacuum, I am not a big person and worried it would be too difficult for me to carry. I am so happy that it is not too heavy and is much easier than my previous traditional vacuums to operate. I love the long cord which enables me to go up and down my stairs easily. I also like the suction strength which works equally well, on my wooden and carpeted areas. Also happy that replacement parts are easily available and that the machine is made in Australia. Well done Rugged Industries on a great vacuum.

  12. Randy Lauderes

    easy to use and lighter than Backpack and pullman
    Jims Cleaning Franchisee are now on the way to order this amazing product .

  13. Ferdinand

    Makes my job easier
    I’m a commercial cleaner and using the Rugged Industries’s vacuum makes my job easier.
    Because their vacuum is very efficient, the suction is excellent, lightweight and I like the powerful turbine brush that gives a good finish on carpets.
    Highly recommended!

  14. Jessie

    The best vaccum
    Very much happy and satisfied with this product. Powerful enough to do the work and easy to use. No complications when it comes to use. Highly recommended! 5 star for this one!

  15. Jody

    I have been a commercial/industrial cleaner for 12 yrs. I have been self employed subcontractor for 9 of them. I have purchased and used various brands of backpack vacuums over the last 12yrs. I have been wanting a bagless vacuum for quite some time as I am over the cloth and disposable bags.

    So my Rugged – Advantage Ultimate Turbo Combo Bagless Back Pack Vacuum Cleaner has turned up on the 25 June, 2020 and i gave it a burl at home. Then off to work I went with it.

    Love the tool caddy idea. This is a fantastic way to keep all 3 tools in reach whilst vacuuming. And three different vacuum heads is great. The gulper (floor tool) will be mostly used. Although i may use the power head (turbine brush) on particular jobs sites for their carpets. Suction is great. It’s an even suction and doesn’t seem lessen when there is dust, paper etc in canister.

    The only thing I will fault is the backpack straps. They are not wide enough nor thick enough for support over the shoulders. Maybe this is something Rugged Industries can review.

    Otherwise I am extremely happy with this vacuum. So much so that I will definitely be purchasing a second vacuum cleaner. Something I have never done before as I have never been fully happy with previous purchases of other backpack products.

    I will definitely be recommending Rugged Industries vacuums to others.

    I have never left a review for any vacuums before so Rugged Industries well done!
