ProTeam® Super Coach Pro 6 Review: Best Commercial Backpack Vacuum Cleaner

Commercial backpack vacuums can increase worker productivity by as much as 230% when compared to upright vacuums.

They can be a time-saving and cost-saving addition to your facility. However, there are several different models, sizes, and manufacturers available. Choosing the best one for your business can be difficult.

To help you select the best commercial backpack vacuum for your facility, we narrowed down the options in a previous article. That list included the ProTeam® Super Coach Pro 6, 6 qt. Backpack Vacuum.

What makes the ProTeam® Super Coach Pro 6 Backpack Vacuum one of the best vacuums of 2021?

The ProTeam® Backpack Vac 6qt Supercoach Pro 6 offers exceptional maneuverability and efficiency. It is equipped with several features and weighs just 11.6 pounds to ensure maximum operator comfort and reduced fatigue.

Additionally, this backpack vacuum goes where the user goes, allowing the user to move more freely and quickly. Unlike with a canister or upright, the user doesn’t have to worry about pulling the vacuum into furniture and fixtures or bumping into objects.

Below, we’ll provide a comprehensive review of the features that make this one of the best commercial vacuums of 2021.

ProTeam ® Super Coach Pro 6 Backpack Vacuum

Cord Electric

This is the only cord electric backpack vacuum that made our list.Yellow Cord

Although cord electric backpacks are less productive than battery powered backpacks, they can provide continuous cleaning time as long as they are within reach of an outlet. Backpack vacuums are limited to their battery life.

This vacuum is equipped with a bright yellow 50-ft cord, so users and building occupants can easily see and avoid the cord to help mitigate the risk of tripping and falling.

Static Lift & Airflow

The ProTeam® Backpack Vac 6qt Supercoach Pro 6 offers the highest airflow on our list at 153 CFM and a static lift of 91 inches.

Static lift removes the soil from the surface and air flow helps the dirt and debris travel down the vacuum hose to the tank. Higher static lift and airflow will provide increased soil removal. Together, they work to remove soil from the surface.

Large Cleaning Capacity

This vacuum is able to hold up to 6 quarts of dirt and debris.

The larger the filter bag capacity the longer staff will be able to clean without having to empty the bag, ultimately increasing working efficiency and lowering labor costs.

FlexFit® Harness

The ProTeam® Super Coach Pro 6 is uniquely equipped with ProTeam’s FlexFit Harness. Unlike other backpack vacuum harnesses, this harness is extremely responsive to the motion of the user's shoulders, back and hips. It conforms to the user’s motion so that the user does not experience fatigue or pain from the backpack.

Additionally, the harness is specially woven to ensure that the user stays cool throughout the cleaning procedure. The open-weave harness allows heat generated from the user and the backpack to dissipate.

Triangular Shape

To ensure the backpack fits the shape of the user, the backpack is triangular. This helps the machine conform to the back of the user for improved comfort.ProTeam Super Coach Pro 6qt Backpack Vacuum

This feature also helps reduce accidental contact with walls and doorways, eliminating damage to the machine and furniture or fixtures.


Backpack vacuums allow the user to walk how they normally would. Meaning, they do not have to hunch over or perform repetitive arm and leg extensions like they would with an upright or canister vacuum.

With less fatigue, staff will be more productive.


Of the backpack vacuums that we reviewed, this is one of the lightest.

At just 11.6 pounds the user doesn’t have to be worried about fatigue from lifting and carrying the vacuum.

Additionally, this backpack has a backplate which helps ensure the weight of the backpack is evenly distributed across the user’s back and hips.

Four Level With HEPA Media Filtration

Four level filtration with HEPA is also a standard feature. The four levels of filtration include:

  1. Intercept Micro Filter
  2. Micro Cloth Filter
  3. Dome Filter
  4. Dual HEPA Filters

For this machine, High-Efficiency Particulate Air or HEPA media filters trap 99.63% of all airborne particles larger than .3-.5 microns. HEPA filters contain and do not recirculate small particles such as dust and dander that can cause health issues to your occupants.

CRI® Seal of Approval

This vacuum has been tested and approved by the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI).

To achieve CRI approval, vacuums are graded based on several factors including soil removal, dust containment and carpet appearance.

CRI approved vacuums can extend the life of carpets, improve indoor air quality and prevent a warranty rejection from a carpet manufacturer.

ProTeam Super Coach Pro 10 10 qt. Backpack Vacuum with Xover Multi-Surface Two-Piece Wand Tool Kit

Cleaning Tool Kit

Like other ProTeam backpack vacuums, this vacuum can be paired with a variety of cleaning tools.

Available options include the 14" Xover® multi-surface floor tool, telescoping wand, 5" upholstery tool, 3" dust brush and 17" crevice tool.

Cleaning tools can be important to boosting worker productivity. Each tool has a specific purpose and can be used to help staff work more easily and quickly in different cleaning applications.


Similar to the other backpack vacuums on our list, this vacuum comes with a 3 year warranty on parts and labor.

Additionally, there is a limited lifetime warranty on molded body parts.

Final Thoughts

User comfort is extremely important when using a backpack vacuum. The user has to hold the weight of the backpack for the duration of the cleaning procedure, which is oftentimes fatiguing.

However, with the ProTeam® Super Coach Pro 6, the backpack is uniquely shaped and positioned so that the user barely feels the 11.6 lb backpack. Further improving comfort, the harness ensures airflow to help the user stay cool during the full cleaning procedure.
