  • Product Overview

    The Minuteman X-829 Vacuum is built for insulation and abatement contractors and other professionals who clean up mold, lead, and asbestos. It’s also widely used in industries where cleanup of hexavalent chromium is needed, such as stainless steel manufacturing and welding. This vacuum consists of a durable polyethylene collection tank and sealed 5-stage ULPA filtration to exceed government requirements for particle control. It is available as a Dry or Wet/Dry model.

    Reliable Performance

    Big on performance, the Minuteman X829 Vacuum Cleaner exceeds government and military standards on particle control by 2.5 times. This means that the vacuum cleaner captures smaller particles than other competitive ULPA filter models. The X-829 series vacuum is equipped with a ULPA filter that is 99.999% efficient at 0.12 microns. Minuteman vacuum filters are more resistant to puncturing, tears, leaks, abrasions, and damage from moisture, so you and your environment stay protected from hazardous materials. The Wet/Dry Vacuum consists of a 4-stage filtration process, and the Dry-Only Vacuum has 5-stage filtration.

    This abatement vacuum is typically used in first response, municipal, education, environmental, military, nuclear, ship-building, stainless steel manufacturing, and welding applications.

    Patented Microswitch for Safety

    The Minuteman X-829's ULPA filter features a patented safety interlock system with a unique microswitch. Mounted internally, the ULPA filter protects both the operator and the motor from contamination and prevents damage to the filter while the machine is being transported. During operation, if the ULPA filter is not properly aligned and in place, the vacuum will not start, protecting both the operator and the environment. This tiny microswitch only activates when this alignment is achieved.

    Maximum Suction Power

    Many Minuteman vacuums are unique because they feature patented self-sealing intakes that ensure a positive vacuum seal while still allowing hoses to swivel for maximum cleaning convenience. The sure-grip quick release mechanism makes it easy to connect and remove hoses. For flexibility, the intake accommodates 1 1/4-inch and 1 1/2-inch hoses, making it adaptable to virtually any application. The Dry-Only model has a 105-inch waterlift and 110 cubic feet per minute (CFM) for strong suctioning power.

    Patented Leak-Proof Adapter

    Similar to the Minuteman X829 Dry Vacuum, the X-829 Wet/Dry Vacuum also features a polyethylene adapter. This UniAdapter quickly attaches to the machine, forming a leakproof seal with the vacuum tank below. The patented UniAdapter is rotational-molded for rugged durability, so it won't dent, corrode, or rust. The UniAdapter fits existing polyethylene, steel, and stainless steel ULPA models to convert them for wet/dry cleaning. The one-piece design makes wet recovery safer and easier.

    Top-Filling Design Doubles Cleaning Capacity

    In addition to increasing safety, the UniAdapter also boosts the X-829's cleaning efficiency. Its top-filling design more than doubles the vacuum's cleaning capacity to accommodate large disposable 6-mil plastic bags, making emptying less frequent, more convenient, and safer. All X-829 cloth filters are 100% polyester, non-woven, and are "dimpled" to provide 50% more filtration a standard, smooth bag.

    Additional Features

    • Convenient Hose Connections—The sure-grip quick release function makes it easy to connect hoses. The intake is compatible with both 1.25-inch and 1.5-inch hoses.
    • Disposable Bags—With the Dry Only model, debris is vacuumed directly into a collector bag that is ready for disposal at a hazardous materials facility.
    • Low Noise—Noise is minimized to 72 decibels by the polypropylene lid assembly. 
    • Long Power Cord—A 50-foot power cord creates a large cleaning radius. 


    The Minuteman X-829 Vacuum is used in the cleanup of lead, mold, asbestos, hexavalent chromium, and other hazardous materials.

    What Customers Love

    • Durable Construction—The polyethylene tank, crush-proof hose, and other parts are built for years of steady and reliable service
    • Strong Filtration—The 5-stage ULPA filtration process is EPA and OSHA-certified to clean up toxic materials.
    • Maximum Suction—With a suctioning power of a 110 CFM, this vacuum cleans expediently.

    Things to Consider

    • Tool Kit Sold Separately—A required tool kit must be purchased separately in order to use this vacuum properly. Select either the Wet-Dry Tool Kit or Dry-Only Kit based on your cleaning needs.
