(BOISE, IDAHO) ProTeam®, the company that created the original and Next Generation backpack vacuums, added a 16-gallon medium-duty wet/dry their popular line of ProGuard® vacuums. The ProGuard 16 MD is ideal for situations where a squeegee is not needed, but compact storage and ProTeam performance are paramount.

“Through listening to our users, we discovered a gap in our wet/dry offerings,” said ProTeam President and CEO Matt Wood. “Our new 16-gallon wet/dry has the capacity and mobility to handle large cleanup, but its compact design and removable handle allow for storage in small spaces.”

Recommended for education, healthcare, hospitality, and foodservice environments, the ProGuard 16 MD tackles emergency spills and daily messes with a powerful 2-stage motor. Quick cleanup is crucial to improving safety and preventing facility damage, so the ProGuard 16 MD has large non-marking wheels, a push handle, and sturdy construction to maneuver obstacles with ease.

Attachments are close at hand in the quick release accessory storage bag that hangs from the removable handle. The 10-foot tug-a-long hose securely locks to the vacuum and will not detach during use. Qwik-lock wet filter maximizes tank capacity, extending the time between tank drains. Liquid and debris is easy to remove through a built in drain at the lowest point of the tank.

In applications ranging from retail to manufacturing to jobsite maintenance, the ProGuard 16 MD quickly removes water to prevent damage and minimize slip and fall risks. Contact a ProTeam rep for a demo today. Find your rep on www.pro-team.com.
