Without cable just as powerful as a mains-powered vacuum cleaner: New cordless vacuum cleaner from Metabo
- High degree of health protection in dust class M
- Powerful like a mains-powered vacuum cleaner
- "CordlessControl" system for automatic vacuum cleaner operation - can be used across manufacturers
Nürtingen, October 2020: A clean working environment is indispensable for health protection, a powerful vacuum cleaner for professionals in the wood or building trade is therefore essential. With the new cordless vacuum cleaner from Metabo, tradesmen now have a vacuum cleaner that allows them to work without a cable to get in the way and still not have to compromise on suction power. „Thanks to powerful Brushless motor, you will not notice any difference to standard mains-powered vacuum cleaners", says Metabo product manager Sebastian Koch. The cordless vacuum cleaner ASR 36-18 BL 25 M SC is classified as dust class M and provides first-rate suction power. It holds back 99.9 percent of the dust generated. "Professionals who are exposed for example to quartz dust are ideally protected with our vacuum cleaner." The new machine can be operated with two 18 volt battery packs or one 36 volt battery pack.
A clean solution: inside and outside the machine
The new vacuum cleaner has three different levels with which the suction power can be regulated depending on the application. "For example, if the professional uses a cordless orbital sander that generates less dust, he can reduce the suction power accordingly and thus increase the battery pack runtime. In this way, he can work longer and make full use of the battery pack`s energy", explains Koch. A particularly large amount of fine dust is generated for example when sanding wood or plaster filler. The filter of the vacuum cleaner gets clogged with dust during longer applications. "We also have a solution for this: the semi-automatic filter cleaning. The technology is already in use in mains-powered vacuum cleaners, now we have developed it further for cordless vacuum cleaners", explains Sebastian. "The filter cleans itself automatically during breaks. Obviously, cleaning can also be started manually by operating a switch."
Extraction with start/stop automatic mechanism
The new cordless vacuum cleaner also offers a special new feature: The "CordlessControl" system. It takes over the automatic start and stop of the vacuum cleaner. Thanks to an intelligent transmitter-receiver system, the cordless tool is connected wirelessly with the vacuum cleaner. The receiver is installed directly in the vacuum cleaner, the receiver is attached to the suction hose. A vibration sensor installed in the transmitter detects when the machine is switched on or off. If the vibration in the machine is not strong enough, the transmitter can be attached directly to the device using the multi tape included in the scope of delivery. "For example, if the user starts operating his cordless tool, the vacuum cleaner starts automatically in parallel. Thanks to this innovative solution, the user is very well protected from dust", says Koch.
For manual cleaning, the user must only press the remote control button on the transmitter which is positioned directly in the front on the sleeve. This is particularly practical for classic floor cleaning applications. Very often, professionals switch the vacuum cleaner on and off by hand. We would like to make it as easy as possible for the user, across all applications.
The great advantage of the system: CordlessControl combines cordless tools of all manufacturers with the cordless vacuum cleaner and thus permits professional users a high flexibility. This makes the system an optimal addition to the cross-manufacturer battery pack system CAS (Cordless Alliance System). Within this alliance, more than 160 machines and devices from currently 17 manufacturers are compatible and can be combined at random with one battery pack.
