The M40 power unit uses a 120 volt motor with two 5.7" diameter fans in an efficient flow-through configuration. The M40's motor provides a maximum 128 inches of lift and 120 cubic feet per minute of airflow totaling 560 Max Airwatts. The high power compact performance canister measures just 22.5" tall and 12" in diameter and can be installed in smaller space than most any other central vacuum in it's class. The M40's flow-through configuration does not require cooling space around the vacuum body as some other units might, and along with the filtered working airflow the M40 also vents all carbon generated by the motor with the systems exhaust flow. This clean-space design allows you to locate the M40 in a clean space within your home, such as a mud room or utility closet. The MVAC M40's compact size and clean running design allows for many unique mounting possibilities.
The M40, like all Optimum Series MVAC units, employs the exclusive AntiVibraSon noise dampening system. Thanks to it's compact size and clean space mounting the M40 is often mounted nearer to the living area than conventional central vacuum which are often installed in the garage or basement. Lower noise is an important factor for all cental vacuum power units and perhaps even more so with the M40. The M40 is among the most quiet in the Optimum line with a noise level rating of only 55dBa. Compared to other brands of central vacuum not using the AntiVibraSon noise isolation system which often generate 70dBa or more (every increase of 3 dBa is a perceived doubling of the noise level) and the impressive performance of MVAC products become clear to anyone using the vacuum system.
Innovative and unique to MVAC, the AntiVibraSon system on each of our Optimum models eliminates vibrations with specially engineered components and state of the art soundproofing, reducing operating sound levels to a minimum. Not a single component or a single function, but a complete system wide approach to noise reduction in every part of the MVAC design and construction. A Smart vacuum comes from smart design, and MVAC is leading the industry in innovative products and manufacturing.
M40's Disposable Bag Collection System
The M40 uses a top filling disposable collection bag to hold all of the vacuumed debris for disposal when full. The collection bag is accessed from the top of the vacuum by removing the lid which conveniently does not require any latches, snaps or fasteners. The lid is fitted into place with a gasket and is held in place during use by suction.
The M40 can be vented to the outside or vented at the unit providing for unlimited mounting locations. Thanks to the clean maintenance of a disposable bag collection system the MVAC M40 can even be mounted in an interior closet if no garage or basement is available or if you simply wish to make accessing your power unit more convenient. Along with disposing of all the vacuumed dirt, dust, debris, allergens, fleas, flea eggs and dust mites the M40 also allow you to quickly dispose of all the odors trapped within the collected debris - a highly coveted feature for those of us with inside pets.
With allergens and dust trapped within the disposable collection container the M40 power unit is the ideal design for those owner/operators with allergies. The dustless maintenance of a disposable bag unit means no puff back from dumping a bagless models collection bin full of dust and dirt into a garbage can which can send millions of ultra fine particles into the air where they may float around for hours aggravating allergies or triggering an asthmatic reaction. Along with it's compact design the bagged collection system of the M40 power unit is convenient and easy to use.
The MVAC Optimum Series uses all steel construction for unparalleled durability and sturdiness. Along with providing a solid mounting platform for the power unit the all steel housing also reduces sound and vibration more than it's plastic body counterparts. The MVAC steel body is protected with a beautiful and durable powder coat paint system inside and out. A powder paint is electrostatically applied to the steel body and thermohardened into place for a durable permanent finish.
Each MVAC Optimum series includes a steel mounting bracket for connection to the wall. While the M40 compact top fill unit includes a left side intake and left side exhaust, the Hybrid bottom fill units including the M70, M90 & M110 use bidirectional intake and right side exhaust.

Best suited for homes up to 3,500* sqft in size using 2 - 5 inlet valves with a maximum tube run of 125 ft including the exhaust system. While best suited for smaller homes, condo's, apartment and speciality applications including large RV's and boats, these recommendations are approximate and for reference only and not intended as a strict guide. For more information please contact Vacdepot for assistance.
* Manufacturers Maximum Square Footage rating. This is a theoretical maximum application size provided by the manufacturer. In real world applications you multiply your actual square footage by 1.75 or 2.0 to apply against the Mfg Max SQFT rating. For example if your homes cleaning square footage (all areas covered by the cleaning hose) is 3200sqft you would look for a manufacturers suggested maximum rating of 5600 - 6400 sqft.
