Director Vacuums with AIRFlow
HEPA Self-Cleaning Filtration. Filter System
includes two filters (Clean Extreme Filter Bags & Flutter
Filter), it's your choice to use either one. Bags collect
ultra fine powders, even wet debris, without filter blinding (dry
powder accumulate in the tank to its inlet port without suction
drop). Flutter Filter eliminates using bags in the vacuum.
Shake Vacuums with Self-Engaged Self-Cleaning Filtration.
Large cartridge filters are protected from debris caking,
simply move the lever to completely & thoroughly clean the
filters and restore 100% suction power ~ within 5 seconds.
Shake Vacuums with Completely Automatic Self-Cleaning
Powerful soft-start (low amp draw) motors prevent circuit
breaker overloads. 30 second timer automatically operates /

you so much Ted. I took a lot of flak for spending
“that kind of money” on a vacuum; I cautioned them
back then that anything else would be a total waste of
money. But after a few days of use, it got quiet
around here . . .
we are almost two years later, the renovations of phase 1,
and simultaneous construction of a new building and R2D2
(as we have affectionately christened it) is the hero of
the job, outlasting three other “cheap” ($200)
knew I was right. Thanks for your help with that!

2-Motor vs. 1-Motor Vacuums (Benefits)
Bypass Motors. Motor
have been specifically selected to optimize the vacuum's
suction power within the power restrictions of our 110 volt
electrical system. Motors are designed to operate on
standard 15 or 20 amp residential circuits and small
generators of 3000 watts or less, with properly gauged
Flexible, Durable Vacuum Hoses.
1-1/2" x 12' hose for easy handling and
maneuvering - with a smooth bore interior for increased air
Inlet Tank Port. The
vacuums include a 1-1/2" hose but 2" hoses are
available and are recommended when longer hose lengths are
required, such as floor grinding or working overhead while the
vacuum remains on the ground.
purchase a 2 or 3-Motor Vacuum vs. using a 1-Motor?
Vacuums Literally Provide Twice the Suction Power . . .
simply by pressing an on/off switch.
If you put your hand at the end
of the hose, you'll feel a noticeable difference with 2 motors
Handle the Unexpected. Two motor power is your
lowest cost solution for handling those unique job site
situations which seem to always occur.
Wider Cuts on the Same Joint.
cutting concrete or mortar joints, you most effective dust
control will always be with one pass of the blade. When
wider cuts are required (having to make 2 or 3 passes on the
same joint), the 2nd motor's power absolutely will compensate
for dust that will escape when attempting to make additional
cuts on the same joint.
for Caked Filters. Extra
suction power always overcomes a caked filter . . . If
the vacuum's filter is dirty or caked, instead of taking the
time to disassemble the vacuum and clean the filter, often by
simply turning-on the motors you'll regain 100% suction power.
Hose Lengths. All
the Dust Director vacuums are equipped with a 2" hose
inlet on the tank. With the option of using a 2"
hose, you'll increase the vacuum's suction power 100%!
vs. H20 Rating.
vacuum's CFM & Static Water Lift (H²0) rating.
These are the true indicators of a vacuum's suction power - as
opposed to horsepower (HP) rating. When ideally matched,
CFM and H20 (water lift) are what creates the powerful suction
you need for extracting ultra-fine powders: CFM - is
"what you hear", H²0 - is "what you
Consider our 12,876 CFM Fan (24"), which has zero water
lift. Its powerful CFM rating is able to pull airborne
dust from a 30 x 50 x 8' room. With the H20 of a vacuum,
you're able to extract piles of concrete dust.
Personally, in 90% of the applications, it is a combination of
the two ratings that optimizes a vacuum's suction power.
Power Rating - Misleading Information.
wet/dry vacuums, claiming 6.0 to 8.0 HP is a very misleading
statement. Peak horsepower ratings are the
maximum output of a motor - as determined by laboratory
testing. Since a vacuum operating at peak horsepower is
outside the normal operating range of a motor, it is not a
true indicator of a vacuum's actual air power.
What matters is CFM and H20 - they are the true measurements
of how a vacuum harnesses its power.
