What are my options for a power unit upgrade?
Oftentimes a customer will call us with a power unit that is no longer under the original owners lifetime warranty. They want to know how much a new motor costs versus a new power unit. Sometimes they want to know what their options are for a more powerful machine or they wish to have a different style of filtration.
Replacing a motor is often close to half the cost of a new power unit. Considerable performance upgrades are available with a new power unit. Many of the newer units are much quieter than those from decades ago.
As to the issue of the replacement for a different filtration method, we see that most people selected a disposable bag system to replace their older true cyclonic systems. This is due to a lot of people not keeping the guard screen clear on the true cyclonic machine or they just don’t want to deal with the mess of a dirt bucket that has years worth of dirt and dust in it.
If you are interested in an upgrade for your power unit, just give us a call and we can discuss your options. We keep all the power units in stock and can usually do your install same day.
