  • Product Overview

    Compact, portable, and powerful—the Nilfisk GM80 Industrial Vacuum helps rid your environment of hazardous dust and debris while protecting the quality and health of your indoor air. Designed for industrial use, lead abatement, and contamination control, both the Nilfisk GM 80 and GM80i vacuums feature a large 3.25-gallon total tank capacity and accommodate Nilfisk's 2.25-gallon dry collection dust bags. Multi-stage HEPA filtration, a compact design, and a heavy-duty trolley make both vacuums ideal for fast, effective, and extremely mobile vacuuming in industrial environments.

    Four-Stage Filtration

    When you're vacuuming a sensitive environment, the last thing you want is to risk releasing harmful airborne particles and pollutants back into your environment through the system's exhaust. That's why the Nilfisk GM80 Vacuum is equipped with a robust, four-stage filtration system to ensure that your vacuum's exhaust—and your environment—remain clean. This four-stage system includes:

    • Filtering Dust Bag – Nilfisk synthetic dust bags collect most of the large dust particles and debris you encounter for simple disposal. Smaller particles, such as fine dust and allergens, move through the dust bag to be caught by the remaining filters.
    • Main Filter – This oversized filter maintains a steady, even airflow to prolong the life of the remaining filters and to ensure optimal vacuum and filtration performance. The filter retains 99.8% of particles as small as 0.3 microns and should be replaced when you notice a loss of suction.
    • Micro-Filter – Both the Nilfisk GM80 and Nilfisk GM80i vacuums feature optional polyester micro-filters designed to protect the vacuum motor and filter out microscopic particles, such as bacteria. This filter is efficient in retaining 99.5% of particles greater than 0.2 microns in size and should be replaced when you notice a discoloration of the material.
    • HEPA Filter – As the final and most effective stage of filtration, the GM-80's HEPA filter captures 99.97% of particles sized down to 0.3 microns, which often include the most toxic and hazardous dusts in your environment. Each Nilfisk HEPA filter is individually tested to meet these efficiency specifications. Typically, the HEPA filter should be replaced with every fourth change of the micro-filter.

    Both the GM80 and GM80i vacuums can be upgraded to use an ULPA, or Ultra Low Penetration Air, filter. The tightly woven ULPA filter (sold separately) can filter 99.999% of particles as small as 0.12 microns in size and lasts approximately 1,000 hours, depending on use. This filter is especially beneficial for maintaining a clean, contaminant-free environment in cleanrooms and other sensitive spaces.

    Nilfisk GM 80 Vacuum vs. Nilfisk GM80i Vacuum

    The Nilfisk GM80i differs from the standard Nilfisk GM80 platform because of its heavier-duty accessories and attachments. Mounted on a fixed trolley for extreme portability (the standard GM80 has a detachable trolley), the GM80i goes where you need it to during any given cleaning task. The GM80i platform also swaps out the GM80's 6.5-foot plastic hose for a 6.5-foot neoprene hose that adds durability. Additionally, with its standard curved steel suction tool, the Nilfisk GM80i provides more cleaning reach and suction power in smaller spaces, such as corners and crevices. Please note that the included vacuum attachments vary for each model package:

    2 straight steel wands

    3-inch round dust brush

    Additional Features

    Both the Nilfisk Advance GM80 and GM80i Industrial Vacuums include a number of features to ensure reliable and effective vacuuming for years to come.

    • Thermal Motor Protection – Each vacuum features a motor thermal protection device that prevents overheating whether it's caused by a failure to properly maintain filters or an accidental blockage in a nozzle or hose.
    • Ball-Joint Attachment Couplings – Nilfisk vacuum attachments feature ball-joint couplings that allow 360 degrees of movement without damaging the hose or creating knots that reduce suction.
    • Interference-Suppressed Motor – These Nilfisk industrial vacuums have interference-suppressed motors that will not interfere with sensitive electronic equipment.
    • Large Carrying Handle – Easily tote the vacuum from space to space using the large, stable carrying handle.
    • 5 Dust Bags Included – A pack of five 2.25-gallon dust bags is included with each vacuum package.

    EPA RRP-Compliant

    If you are a contractor, the Nilfisk GM80 and GM80i Vacuums can help you comply with the EPA's Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting rule. In addition to using a HEPA filter, these vacuums 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 GM 80 equipped with a floor nozzle that features a beater bar when cleaning carpeting is required to remain EPA RRP-compliant.

    Operates Remarkably

    By Paul Condon

    from USA

    Comments about Nilfisk Advance Nilfisk GM-80 Vacuum (Industrial):

    We have purchased multiple GM80 vacuums for our manufacturing facility and they operate remarkably. Sometimes we run them 16 hours a day for a month straight and they keep on sucking. The noise level produced is very minimal, sometimes you have to touch the vacuum to feel if it is on or off, it is SO quiet.
