The Sanitaire SC899E is a high quality, extra wide 16" upright which is designed for commercial cleaning. Its hood, base plate and complete handle are made from durable chrome plated steel. Even the handle release pedal and latching mechanism are made of hardened steel for extra long life. Its manufacturer is an industry leader, having successfully used Lexan for their upright bases, fans, and other parts requiring high impact resistance since the mid 1960s. Lexan is General Electric's registered trademark for a particular type of polycarbonate resin. It is an extremely tough and strong synthetic plastic with the ability to maintain its shape and size even under great stresses over a wide range of temperatures. This makes it ideal for the main base of the Sanitaire SC899E. It is light weight but extremely tough, being able to flex and handle high impacts without breaking.
Large amounts of air flow and rigorous carpet agitation powered by its 7.0 amp. (840 watts) high performance motor combine in the Sanitaire SC899E Commercial upright to deep-clean all types of carpeted floors. Featuring lifetime lubricated ball bearings and well constructed motor parts it will perform dependably for many years. The belt pulley is made with hardened steel to reduce wear even when cleaning sand and other abrasive substances. When it comes to cleaning carpeted floors, this upright will out perform most uprights, even those with higher amperage ratings.
The sturdy, well designed suction fan in the Sanitaire SC899E is one of the most efficient in the industry. The fan's extra large diameter and tall blades are designed to handle large volumes of air efficiently. This special fan, combined with the extra large air passages and extra large bag, produces an extremely high amount of air flow through the system for very effective cleaning. Being made with Lexan, it is extremely tough with the ability to maintain its shape and size even under great stresses over a wide range of temperatures. Its ability to flex with impact enables its blades to take direct hits from large debris with minimal risk of breaking.
The "Quick Kleen" transparent fan chamber lets you see when your vacuum cleaner fan chamber needs to be serviced. This enables restaurants and other food oriented users to easily remove residual food which adheres to the outer surfaces of the fan chamber.
The tempered extruded aluminum brush roll, named the "Vibra Groomer I", is one of the strongest in the industry. It has a contoured spiral design which enhances the agitation produced by the row of bristles plus a row of steel beater bars. The brush strips are replaceable, reducing the cost of replacing the complete brush roll. The brush roll revolves on two sealed precision ball bearings which are protected by metal thread guards for longer maintenance free operation. Except for the brush strips, the complete brush roll assembly is metal and should last the entire life of this heavy duty vacuum cleaner. For reduced vibration and extended life, its metal end caps are mounted in rubber when the roll is inserted into the Lexan base.
The center mounted air intake behind the brush roll flares out to the edges of the cleaning nozzle as it approaches the brush roll. This wide funnel shaped opening causes the air flow to be distributed quite evenly across the entire cleaning width for more efficient and uniform cleaning. This also creates a flat dirt collection area immediately behind the brush roll so dirt and grit are gathered and whisk away by the air flow before they can bounce back out of the nozzle. This substantially reduces the scatter effect which many uprights experience when picking up grit and small stones.
The Sanitaire SC899E comes equipped with a commercial shakeout cloth bag to enable lower operating costs. If you desire significantly lower dust emissions, upon request Ristenbatt Vacuum will switch to a commercial zippered Micron outer bag for use with their Premium paper bags. This Micron Filter System retains up to 99% of pollens, household dust mites and other allergens as small as 1 micron. Premium bags have the ability to filter out 10 times more of sub-micron size particles than ordinary vacuum cleaner bags. This filtration is accomplished with minimal loss of air flow.
The extra-long 50' power cord enables you to clean large areas without breaking your pace to change to a different electrical outlet. Its extra heavy construction with kinkless vinyl cover makes it a very durable power cord to match this durable commercial upright. A grounding wire and three prong plug are incorporated as well to meet safety requirements.
The Sanitaire SC899E has extra wide wheels which will roll easily over your carpeted floors while enabling this upright to be easily pivoted for excellent maneuverability around your furniture. Being made with tough vinyl using a reinforcing ribs design, they will perform without breaking for many years to come. All wheels are mounted on steel axles for reduced friction and extended life. The extra wide rear wheel base adds to the stability of this commercial upright.
Easily adjust the Sanitaire SC899E to match the exact height of your carpets with the front mounted six position height adjustment knob. This enables you to set it exactly as need for optimum cleaning and ease of use.
