Attix 33-21 InfiniClean™ Vacuum with Autostart & HEPA
(Freight!) - the
Attix 33 (8 gallon) and Attix 44 (11 gallon) vacuums could
possibly be the most significant vacuums to come out of
Nilfisk/Alto's "blue line" since the introduction of
the Attix 8 & 12 back in 2005. That's a bit of a bold
assumption, especially considering I haven't had a chance to test
one yet. Initial impressions are very positive.
Notable Design Changes and Upgrades
a. New InfiniClean (IC)
filter cleaning system. Engineered to work without filter
bags. The InfiniClean filter system can be disabled on the
autostart (33-21 and 44-21) models, important when
working at lower suction levels or in quiet environments.
This prevents the machine from ramping up motor speed during
the filter cleaning cycle (every 15-20 seconds).
b. Washable PTFE filter that
can be changed by lifting the rear hatch door on the vacuum.
No need to remove the heavy motor head assembly. The PTFE
filters are non-stick and easier to clean than the previous
PET fleece filters.
c. New motor has serviceable
brushes (like the old Type M motors)
d. A fleece filter is
available for motor cooling when used in high dust work
environments. Bypass air is filtered to prevent dust from
contaminating and compromising the motor or electronics
e. Exhaust air adapter
available as an inexpensive option to direct air outside the
work zone (through one of the stock hoses). Great for working
in clean areas and auto detailing shops.
f. Improved chassis. Rugged
double wall canister with larger rear wheels and new locking
(steel) front casters.
g. Improved air flow
compared to previous models.
h. Flat top design for
improved tool storage. Optional mounting kit for Sortimo
L-Boxx or Tanos Systainer storage boxes.
i. Lower center of gravity
compared to previous models. Less top heavy means less chance
of tipping. The new machines both measure 15.2" wide by
22.2" long. The Attix 33 models are 20.5" tall and
the Attix 44 models 23.8" tall.
j. Available as a true HEPA
vacuum (great value when ordered new as a HEPA model). Non
HEPA models can be upgraded....more costly.
k. Available 3-stage
filtration for additional safety when working with hazardous
dust.....main PTFE filter, HEPA filter and fleece filter bag.
Impressive for a machine at this price point.
l. Common consumables -
despite the 3 gallon difference in capacity between the 33
and 44, both machines use the same filters and bags. This is
a convenience if you own and have to stock parts for both
The Attix 33 IC HEPA is the
Basic IC model with the addition of the HEPA filter element and
HEPA filter cover kit. The HEPA version is only $60 extra than
the non-HEPA model and the only one I am stocking. To add HEPA at
a later date will cost $155.00. This is nice improvement over the
previous Attix 30 XC HEPA and great for painters and contractors
working working with lead paint or other nasty materials and HEPA
filtration and tool triggered autostart for their saws or
