making a old vax work much better
« on: June 09, 2016, 10:44:07 PM »
Hi there i have noticed that that all vax canister cleaners have rubbish dust bags they clog up really quick
and i would say they lose 100w suction but i remembered that numatic henrys   have fantastic bags

so this is what i came up with and now my old vax can keep its power much much longer

see pic

Inspired! A really good mod,  old vax bags seem so thick and restrictive!

Good job :thumbsup: Are you using a Vax 121? If so, good choice lol. Built like a tank and so need good bags too, you have modified it o be an excellent machine now well done ;)
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

yes I still use my old vax 121 and I replace the bag when it's just over half full so the motor never gets hot

and I use heap flow bags they are the best

A hepaflo bag could be jam packed and still suck! Still suck till the point comes where dirt starts collecting in the hose end

I would never fill the bag that much as that could shorten my vaxes life  and I will keep if for as long I can hopefully uptill I am in my 50s
