(BOISE, ID.) ProTeam®, the company internationally recognized for innovative vacuum technology, has added a six amp-hour (6Ah) battery option for the GoFree® Flex Pro cordless backpack vacuum. The standard 12 amp-hour (12Ah) battery gives users approximately one hour of runtime with two and a half hours to fully charge. The 6Ah battery will offer a 30-minute runtime, ideal for detail cleaning or light duty, with one and a half hours to charge.

“Our goal is to make the gains of cordless efficiency available to the entire industry,” said ProTeam Director of Marketing Jacalyn High. “The latest field tests show productivity gains of 40 percent from using the GoFree Flex Pro in a cleaning system. By offering two battery options with different weights and runtimes, we hope to give cleaning pros more options to integrate cordless technology into their work.”

The GoFree Flex Pro improved upon its predecessor, the GoFree Pro, with a more efficient motor, reducing the weight of the unit by 14 percent. The 6Ah battery option will reduce the weight of the GoFree Flex Pro even further bringing it to 23 percent lighter than the original GoFree Pro. Both vacuums offer greater efficiency by setting cleaners free from the restriction of a cord.

“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.”

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.
