  • Product Overview

    Designed with comfort and ease-of-use in mind, the Nilfisk GD10 Back Vacuum – popularly nicknamed a “backuum” – is a powerful vacuuming system equipped with a variety of features for fast and effective cleaning. This vacuum cleaner replaces the previous Nilfisk Backuum, model #01796934. The Nilfisk Advance GD10 boasts an upstream HEPA filter that safely traps 99.97% of hazardous dust and other particulates as small as 0.3 microns. Its unique, ergonomic design, lighter weight, and comfortable carrying harness maximize mobility and make it easier to clean confined or cluttered areas. Use it to clean cinemas, theaters, transit vehicles, hotels, offices, and households.

    Overall, the Nilfisk GD 10 Back Vacuum with HEPA filter has more than twice the particle capacity, features a more ergonomic design, and performs better than the first-generation Nilfisk Back Vacuum. With its advanced filtration system and upgraded features, the GD10 can boost your cleaning productivity by up to 30% when compared to traditional upright vacuums.

    Robust, 4-Stage Filtration System

    The Nilfisk GD10 Back Vacuum is equipped with a robust, 4-stage filtration system that helps protect both the vacuum cleaner itself as well as your environment. Filters include:

    • Pre-Filter – The Nilfisk Advance GD10 pre-filter is the first point of filtration for incoming air. This filter helps remove larger particles and prolong the life of the remaining filters.
    • Main Filter – The sack-style main filter is efficient in removing 98.2% of particles and helps protect and prolong the life of the advanced HEPA filter and heavy-duty vacuum motor.
    • HEPA Filter – The upstream HEPA, or High Efficiency Particulate Air, filter is efficient in removing 99.97% of particles sized 0.3 microns and larger. For optimal performance, you should replace this filter every 6 months or more, depending on usage.
    • Exhaust Filter – This filter cleans the air exhausted from the motor, preventing harmful particles from being released back into your environment.

    In addition, the Nilfisk GD10 features a quick-sealing dust bag that can be removed and sealed quickly to prevent harmful debris and allergen particles from escaping. This further protects your indoor environment and air quality.

    Ergonomic Design for Operator Comfort

    With adjustable shoulder straps and a comfortable tool storage waistband, the Nilfisk Backpack Vacuum Cleaner increases your comfort and productivity with each task. For safety, the vacuum's hot exhaust air is blown upward in order to keep heat away from the operator. Additionally, the canister-style GD10 delivers quieter operation than comparable vacuum cleaners.

    Included Accessories

    The Nilfisk GD 10 includes a variety of accessories to increase cleaning effectiveness and efficiency. These include:

    • Combination Floor Nozzle – The floor nozzle features a manual on/off brush control for cleaning bare floors (brush off) and carpeting (brush on).
    • Round Dust Brush – Dust and clean furnishings and other small items using the round dust brush attachment.
    • Crevice Cone – Clean tight spaces such as those in furniture, radiators, corners, and joints with the crevice tool.
    • Telescopic Wand – The telescoping wand extends cleaning reach with the touch of a button.
    • Replacement Dust Bags – A 5-pack of replacement dustbags (part # 1471097500) is included in the vacuum package.

    EPA RRP-Compliant

    If you are a contractor, the Nilfisk GD 10 Backpack Vacuum can help you comply with the EPA's Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting rule. In addition to using a HEPA filter, this vacuum can accommodate a turbo floor nozzle with beater bar to improve lead dust removal on carpeting. The Nilfisk Turbo Floor Nozzle – Part # 56649625 (sold separately) works to dislodge heavy lead particulates that may have accumulated in carpet fibers overtime. Using a HEPA vacuum like the GD10 equipped with a floor nozzle that features a beater bar when cleaning carpeting is required to remain EPA RRP-compliant.

      Comments about Nilfisk Advance Nilfisk GD10 Backpack Vacuum Cleaner:

      I remember the good ole days when Nilfisk had one of the best motors in the vacuum history the GA and the GS series. then came the GM series with the throw a way motor. has a high pitch whine to it and at a 1000 watts has less airflow than the 700 watt beauty. This vacuum is not as good as my stainless steel lightweight GS powered portable. Good for plastic and I do love the grey look to it. but not as pretty as stainless and or as long lasting. time for Advance to give up Nilfisk and let them go back to their roots. which was the best motor in the vac world.

      Comments about Nilfisk Advance Nilfisk GD10 Backpack Vacuum Cleaner:

      This vacuum is extremely lightweight and straps in nicely on my back. It is very manuverable without anything getting in the way. The accessories are also very light. It is very convenient with great flexibility in the adjustable length of the hose and accessories. It easily reaches all areas underneath even large furniture such as a bed, made easier by the swiveling head of the floor attachment. We even received an extra accessory, the motorized floor attachment, which we had not expected. The length of the cord is astonishing, allowing me to clean an entire floor of the house without moving the plug and goes up and down the stairs without any trouble whatsoever. The cord is very thick, high quality. This vacuum really makes regular residential vacuum cleaners look like garbage. I also think it is really pretty, especially compared to residential vacuums which tend to be large, unwieldy, and underpowered. My husband and I are in the midst of a large and messy house remodel, and our little GD10 Back has done a wonderful job of cleaning up after all the dust from wood, brick, plaster, and whatever else has been tossed around in our house. The only thing that I would recommend is the addition of an optional carrying handle for those rare times when one just wants to move the vacuum without slinging it. Other than that, this is a perfect vacuum for me. I am entirely pleased and would recommend this vacuum to anyone, especially those with medium to large houses. Thank you Nilfisk for such an amazing little, but powerful vacuum cleaner!

      Nilfisk GD10 Back Vacuum

      Comments about Nilfisk Advance Nilfisk GD10 Backpack Vacuum Cleaner:

      I have been a Nilfisk vacuum owner for 20 years and could never find another brand that worked as well; I ordered the back-strap model for ease of moving through my home without having to drag a cannister with me. I have a 2-story home and being able to travel throughout most of the house with the vacuum strapped to my back is wonderful. It is not that heavy but it did take just a little bit of time getting used the the vacuum on my back. Once I did, I really began to appreciate the ease of use.
