Farm size vacuum cleaner
"You get all this and more in our new Big Brute vacuum cleaner," says Michael Williams, manufacturer. "Farmers who've seen it work tell us it's exactly what they've wanted in a farm-size vacuum cleaner. It's the first of its kind and the best-selling new model we've ever introduced."
The basic "wet and dry" Big Brute comes with 50 ft. of kink-proof 2.5 in. dia. hose (an extra 50 ft. can be added, if required). It will suck up water at the rate of 1 gallon per second, and dry material at the rate of up to 3 tons per hour. Available ma "dry material only" model, it comes with a 3 ft. long steel scraper tool for sucking materials from inaccessible areas.
The Big Brute has its own built-in wheel-barrow- style transport with 8 in. dia. wheels. It's equipped with 3 independent 1000 watt electric motors and a 50-gal. collection drum. One person working alone can easily empty the drum in a matter of seconds and cart the machine from job to job, Williams points out. "It's especially popular for fast cleaning of grain bins, water and debris-logged grain unloading pits, and grain drills."
The basic Big Brute sells for about $1,000 in England.
