(BOISE, IDAHO) ProTeam®, the company internationally recognized for innovative vacuum technology, introduces an upgrade in cordless efficiency, the lighter-weight GoFree® Flex Pro backpack vacuum with longer battery-life.

“In the coming years, the cleaning industry will continue to turn to cordless equipment to improve efficiency,” said ProTeam President and CEO Matt Wood. “We plan to be on the forefront, using the latest battery-powered technology to help our users save time and money.”

In field tests, ProTeam’s last cordless backpack, the GoFree Pro, saved one to 1.5 hours off a four-hour vacuuming shift. These efficiency gains were due to the freedom of being unrestricted by a cord and the elimination of cord management tasks. Offering the same cordless freedom, the GoFree Flex Pro is 14 percent lighter than its predecessor, improving user comfort. Due to a more efficient motor, its runtime is increased to approximately one hour.

“We want to make sure our GoFree Pro users benefit from the longer runtime and lighter weight of the GoFree Flex Pro, so we are also offering a motor upgrade,” said ProTeam Director of Marketing Jacalyn High. “With the more efficient motor, GoFree Pro users can improve their existing units.”

The FlexFit® articulating harness creates a secure, body-friendly fit, increasing range of motion and reducing fatigue. Four Level® Filtration w/HEPA captures 99.97 percent of particulates 0.3 microns or larger, including fine carbon dust from the motor, for improved IAQ.
