If you are looking for a heavy-duty, Wet/Dry Commercial canister vacuum. Centaur SL-8 is a wet and dry vacuum cleaner with a 20 litre (5 gallons) capacity, perfect for vacuuming commercial carpets, bare floors and liquid, water or any wet application. The SL-8 is ideal for tough jobs at janitorial or cleaning companies, government buildings, hotels, restaurants and hospitals. The SL-8 has a long cord at the 36-foot cord and is made of heavy polyethylene, while the top is chrome-plated steel. That standard took kit included with the SL-8 gets a long 10 ft hose that has a 1.5" diameter, an S wand, a combo tool and a squeegee. The machine body is made of heavy polyethylene, while the top is chrome-plated steel. SL-8 vacuum cleaners are built to withstand the most rigorous use. Machines made 40 years ago are still in use. 1) Auxiliary Power Brush Receptacle Connect a Wessel-Werk power brush (sold separately) to the auxiliary power plug provided on the SL-6 and SL-8, and you can now use a power brush to deep clean carpets. 2) Steel Intake System Most other vacs use plastic for connecting the hose into the vacuum which often fails and breaks with time as you drag your vacuum by pulling on the hose. Centaur on the other hand uses a steel intake system for maximum strength and durability so you won’t have to worry about the hose/vacuum connection breaking or failing. 3) 1.5 inch Intake Ideal for picking up larger debris and objects during vacuuming. 4) Double Action Metal Latches Latches are needed to open and close the vacuum when accessing the filters or emptying the contents. The metal latches Centaur uses to provide additional strength and durability, so the latches last a lifetime and don’t fail on you (even if the vacuum were to ever roll down a flight of stairs). 5) Double Ball Bearings Casters Gives you the full range of motion with ease, even when rolling it on the carpet. And we can claim they are the absolute best in the industry.
