New KS300 professional vacuum cleaner from Rupes

Co Cavan-based Abcon Industrial Products has added to its Rupes range with the addition of the new Rupes KS300 Professional Vacuum Cleaner.

Anthony Doherty, sales manager of Abcon Industrial Products said: “This is a seriously impressive bit of kit.

“As health and safety in the workplace is ever more important, this new cleaner from Rupes will be a great addition to bodyshops and other workshops in Ireland.”

Dust extractors collect dust as it is made, in an effort to prevent particles from lingering in the air and being inhaled by operators.

They also have the added benefit of preventing dust from landing on unwanted surfaces, such as a freshly painted vehicle, saving precious time cleaning and removing the dust.

However, not all dust extraction systems are made equal. Rupes, founded in 1947, is renowned for making globally recognised professional tools to an excellent standard.

The family-owned company says it remains committed to research and development, aimed at constantly improving the performance of each product.

At the core of all of its activities is the design and manufacture of products, which are in total compliance with health and safety regulations and offer enhanced operator comfort.

The KS300 has an integrated workstation which guarantees high filtration efficiency with five square metres filtering surface and three filtering steps, according to Rupes.

It is compact, easily maneuverable and can support two operators simultaneously, thanks to the innovative dual motor technology which features two 1200W motors.

These motors can work alternately or together, and a single motor can support up to two tools at the same time. The unit includes two electric plugs and two pneumatic plugs, both with an autostart system. It also has an interlocking toolbox system and high intensity soundproofing material.

“We like to offer solutions as well as products to our customers and this new kit will definitely tick both of those boxes for us,” Doherty added.
