Sanitaire SC412B Backpack Vacuum

Sanitaire SC412B Commercial Vacuum

The Sanitaire SC412-B, also dubbed as the ‘commercial backpack’ vacuum cleaner, is designed for quick and light cleaning applications, most particularly in hard-to-reach areas. Although it is important for this model to be lightweight and handy, performance is still a tricky issue since it has to be able to get rid of all kinds of dirt and debris in just a short time. That’s why Sanitaire decided to pack a lot of punch into this unique offer.

But why is it called a ‘backpack’? Well, it’s simply because it comes with an ergonomically designed back harness that allows you to strap the vacuum to your back as you clean. The harness is not at all difficult or heavy to handle for anyone, even home users. As a very unique product, the SC412-B certainly has its own niche market. The Sanitaire Sc412 must be used with a disposable paper bag.

Sanitaire SC412B Overview
The SC412-B is a highly recommended and very unique vacuum cleaner configuration for those with very specific needs. Although built for lighter cleaning purposes, the flexibility that the backpack vacuum offers is yet unmatched.

Top Accessories
Its small size does not keep it from having a few extra surprises up its sleeve. The backpack vacuum also comes with:

  • 1 ½ inch cleaning accessory
  • Adjustable ‘S’ wand
  • Carpet nozzle
  • Bare floor nozzle
  • Crevice nozzle
  • Dusting brush

Of all these features, the most unique is the S wand, which, instead of being straight, is actually in the shape of an ‘S’. The purpose of this wand is so that you can easily reach around and under your furniture while cleaning.

Benefits for the SC412B Commercial Vacuum

  • Despite its smaller size or configuration, the SC412-B commercial backpack is UL listed for commercial applications. But since it is very convenient to use, it is also great for use at home.
  • With the adjustable wand, the SC412-B can reach low, high, behind, and under furniture and other fixtures; it is great for meticulous users who really want to clear those corners and crevices of dust and debris. This commercial backpack vacuum offers so much flexibility that it’s a must-have especially if you are not willing to invest in a full-sized vacuum.
  • Optional Carpet Accessory for your Sanitaire SC412 --------------------------------------------->
  • Aside from being ergonomically designed, the SC412-B’s shoulder and waist straps are adjustable so you can clean comfortably.
  • The Sanitaire backpack vacuum is certified by the CRI Green Label, which awards a Seal of Approval to all models that meet its green criteria.
  • With a 71 dB noise level rating, the SC412-B whispers while it works.
  • Despite its size, the Sanitaire commercial backpack boasts of a full 1400-watt motor, which has even more power than many full-sized models.
  • Employing a 4-stage filtration system, the SC412-B can really help clear the air of dust and allergens.
  • The Carpet and Rug Institute seal of approval.
  • The backpack vacuum weighs only 11.5 lbs., which is to be expected from a model that’s positioned as an appliance that can be carried on one’s back. At this weight, the SC412-B is already easy enough to carry around.
  • Take note that the 50 foot power cord can be detached so you can move freely around.

Excellent product. After two years of commercial use, this backpack is still running strong. The only things I've had to replace are the pigtail and the switch, which went bad after about a year and a half. As long as you keep the filter bag and filters clean, and only let the bag fill about a quarter of the way, it maintains suction like the day of purchase.
