Ideal for classrooms, office cubicles, churches and other congested areas. Features sturdy cast-aluminum construction that has stood up to the toughest professional use for the past 50 years. Does not include hose or tools.


  • The "Pig" is easier to use and reduces operator fatigue; the 4 lb wand is less than half the weight per stroke of even the smallest upright.
  • Creating a powerful 117 cfm suction stream, it uses an oversized, heavy-duty cast-aluminum fan to produce 95% more suction than the average single motor upright.
  • Because of its maneuverability around furniture, it saves time and effort associated with moving furniture.
  • Litter is trapped in the M-1's exclusive "scrap trap" before it can reach the fan. It will gobble up coins, paper clips, nuts and bolts better than any upright.
  • Minimizes downtime - No belt changes, ever; and more durable moving parts.
  • The top-fill filter bag holds up to 5 times more than a standard upright. That keeps it on the job longer. And the zipper opening makes it easy to empty.
  • Built smart with a motor that lasts up to 24 times longer than ordinary upright motors and has fewer parts to replace.
  • Lightweight wands and tools clean in even the tightest areas; uprights can't even come close.
  • Moves safely over the 'electric spaghetti' in and around desks and offices; there's no danger of damage from entangling cables and cords around a beater bar.
  • Bearings mounted in separate steel housing for longer bearing life.
  • Carbon brushes last up to 2500 hours and are easily changed on location.
  • Cord attached to frame to prevent pullout.
  • Sleeve-type rear wheels for effortless transport.
  • On/off switch securely mounted on machine frame.
  • Swivel casters for easy maneuverability.
  • Heat-treated, cast aluminum fan hood resists sand abrasion for longer life.
