Product Details



The key feature of the 5L capacity Advantage Turbo bagless cyclonic backpack vacuum cleaner is the air-driven turbo brush floor tool, which provides the highest dust removal per square meter of carpet of all the vacuum cleaners in the Rugged vacuum cleaner range. The Turbo brush grooms and agitates the carpet pile, removing embedded dust. It also removes hair and any loose carpet fiber at the carpet surface. The carpet vacuumed with the turbo brush will become aerated, healthier, fresh, and clean.

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, and Package

Advantage Turbo 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 suited to commercial use. The antimicrobial additives in the hose kill microbes trapped in the convolutions, providing odour control.
  • In addition to the Turbo Brush, the Advantage Turbo vacuum cleaner package contains a versatile, commercial, low-profile EZ2GO floor tool designed to remove bulky materials from 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 Turbo suits applications on diverse flooring, small light commercial applications, shops, offices, home cleaning, and apartments.

    Advantage Classic Bagless Back Pack Vacuum Cleaner
    When buying this vacuum I was concerned about the weight, 4.9kg. My wife previously used a Pullman that is 5.5 kg and the difference didn’t seem all that great.
    However, let me say that there is a world of difference, it is so much lighter. My wife is 42kg and she said that she hardly notices the weight.
    It also performs great.
    So if it is a lightweight vacuum that works then this is the one.

    Advantage Pro
    Brilliant product. I have two large dogs and the vacuum performed brilliantly. The nobility and portability was important as the house as many flights of stairs. The large collection tank is very useful. Quality made Australian product, highly recommend.

  3. joe

    good and tough

    bought x 3 vacuum cleaners and up until now very happy with the product and cannot fault the unit,

    So good I just bought a second one
    I have been in the cleaning business for 30 + years and just bought this vacuum cleaner for my own house. I have dogs that shed a lot and bring dirt into the house a lot. I used this vacuum cleaner and was amazed how much dirt and dog fur it got out of my carpets. I then used it in other locations and was so happy I just placed an order for a second one for my business. It’s the best vacuum cleaner I have ever used. It is easy to handle, light-weight, and comes with a lead long enough to get you anywhere in the house. I love that it is bag-less and I can see what’s in there and how much dust I am collecting. very satisfying. Also in my business and with the corona threat people don’t want me to use the same bag I used in another house so I just clean it all out after each house and voila a clean vacuum cleaner put’s people’s mind at ease. I can even spray a bit of disinfectant on the clean out wand and it’s doubly clean. The clean out wand is something else you don’t get from some of those other more well known brands. Often it is impossible to get their container clean because there is no space to get anything in there to wipe it clean. This one has a brilliant wand and it wipes it clean in a matter of seconds. The hose is also anti-bacterial so it won’t start smelling if you sucked up something nasty. The service is super fast. My vacuum cleaner arrived within 36 hours of ordering. I can highly recommend this product. It is comfortable to wear, too.

    Great Vacuum

    I would like to thank Tim for his kind and friendly service.

    I purchased 2 of the backpack vacuums on line in 2020 for Suprima Bakeries and have not been disappointed with there performance and the quality.

    Rugged delivery service was very quick.

  8. Danielle

    Love it!!
    Absolutely brilliant! So happy with this! I use it daily for the cleaning business, the suction is fantastic, it’s lightweight and so easy to clean. Never had any problems with it- just clean it out and run the air compressor over the filter and canister and you’ll never have any worries. Ten out of ten!!

  9. Terri Kahan

    Brilliant customer service
    So I ordered 4 dusting brushes but they weren’t the original oval ones as they couldn’t get a supply of the original oval ones I got sent square ones. They weren’t the easiest to use and kept leaving black marks on the wall if you got to close. I contacted Rugged just to ask if I could order the original oval dusting brushes and they were more than happy to help me out. I absolutely love the rugged industries vacuum cleaner and the accessories it’s an amazing piece of equipment that helps make my business run smoothly. I tell all my cleaner friend these vacuums are a must and they won’t regret there decision in purchasing one. Thank you guys this product is truely amazing.

    A superb Vacuum Cleaner!!!
    This has to be one of the best vacuum cleaners I have ever used in all of my cleaning life! I have never met such a fantastic Australian made product like from the Rugged Range. From my first use of this unit- I fell in love!! It is both practical, powerful and easy to use! Many beautiful features- I must say the long cable allows me to canvass much of the brotherhood without the annoyance of unplugging and plugging elsewhere to continue the cleaning.

    I award Rugged Vacuum Cleaners with a superb 5 STAR rating! This is one of the most best products on the market!! I am 100% over joyed!

    I also would like to award the staff, especially Timothy with a 5 STAR rating for his professional advice, his detailed knowledge and transparency. Honesty, care, reliability. I have never met such a warm-hearted fellow. He made my shopping experience joyful and helpful. Certainly, the best customer service!!

    I definitely recommend Rugged Vacuum cleaners and the staff at Rugged. You won’t find such helpful, and beautiful people that I have been blessed to meet.

    I bless that Rugged prosper fruitfully in the Lord and that the Good Lord bless them to continue with their fantastic cleaning products i.e their vacuum cleaners well into the future. My shopping experience was wonderful, I truly love my vacuum cleaners and I thank them wholeheartedly for everything.

    God always bless you! Amen

    We purchased this product as my sister and I started a cleaning business a few months back and needed to replace the old vacuum. This product is unbelievable! The amount of dust and grime it collected from deep inside the carpet was insane. Our clients carpets looked so good that they looked like they didn’t even need to be steam cleaned afterward. Super powerful and quality product. Customer service was fantastic also. They had called to ensure the product I ordered was fit for what I was using it for and also explained that frequent cleaning will help maintain the life and quality of the product. I clean it after every use and its as if its brand new each time. We will 100% be purchasing more of these as our business grows! We have even strongly recommended it to a bunch of our clients. Thank you Rugged Industries for making our job easier!
