The Aggresor PU298 Performer Plus central vacuum brings together many of the great qualities of Electrolux large body central vacuums in one model. Great performance with a 2-stage Domel bypass motor, sophisticated control system with built in motor protection and slow-start feature, durable cold form steel chassis with powder coat paint, and easy maintenance with latched lightweight collection bin for bagless collection. The Aggressor Performer Plus can be fitted to all existing systems with adaptable left or right side intake connection which makes the PU298 great for both new construction systems and as a replacement for old power units. With the 640 Airwatt suction motor the Aggresor PU298 is rated for application up to a manufacturers suggested 10,000 square feet or an actual home size of 4900 square feet single level, 6600 sqft in multi-level where the longest tube run plus the length of any exhaust would be less than 220ft.
The Aggresor power units are manufactured by Electrolux for the Aggresor brand in a private label. These units are built the same as other Electrolux central vacuums and are very similar to the BEAM model 298C. The Aggresor brand PU298 includes an excellent mix of features including a Triumph HEPA filter media, built-in utility inlet, Sound-Off exhaust muffler, all steel frame with poly collection bin and bi-directional intake. The PU298 vacuums use the Domel all metal bypass dual stage suction motor. The bypass suction motor produces a maximum 640 airwatts of cleaning performance. The Domel suction motor has dual 7.2” fan stages and can produce a maximum 126 CFM of airflow and 137 inches of static lift.
The suction motor and all vacuum operations are controlled by a solid state ECS (Electrolux Control System) module. The low-volt control system is universal and works with all central vacuum wall inlets. Wires are connected with easy speaker style connection that does not require special wire terminals or connectors. An external override power switch is positioned at the top of the vacuum canister which allows you to switch on the suction motor for use with the built-in utility inlet.
Power is supplied to the system with a detachable 6ft power cord, included with the vacuum cleaner. The PU298 plugs in to a standard 120 volt electric outlet. The outlet should be wired on a standard 20 amp circuit breaker. A dedicated circuit is best as the PU298 requires 15 amps which would limit other uses for the circuit when the vacuum is running.
The PU298 has three intake openings on the steel canister body. Two tubing intake ports are available for connection, one on the left side or one on the right side of the unit. If you need to move the tube intake connection from one side to the other you simply twist the connectors which unscrews from the vacuum body. Twist the block-off plate from the other side and swap the two. The adjustable intake makes installation easier and allows you to match an old system if you are using the PU298 to replace or upgrade an existing unit. The third intake is a manual utility port on the front of the vacuum. The utility port allows you to connect a low-volt or universal central vacuum hose directly to the vacuum for cleaning in the same area as the vacuum. The utility port is a great way to vacuum in a garage or basement using a vacuum hose to quickly clean the car, workbench or just clean lint from the clothes dryer. The tube intake port, utility hose port and the block off plate can all be moved into any position with a simple twist off. As long as all three ports are fitted with a connector or block-off plate, you can attach the connectors in any configuration you desire.
The PU298 power unit comes standard as a permanent filter bagless collection system. The PU298 uses Electrolux's exclusive Triumph© HEPA media permanent filter. The filter is self maintaining, never needs replacement - lasting the life of the machine. The center weighted cone shaped filter hangs down in the center of the vacuum body. Each time the vacuum is turned on or off the filter moves up and down, flexing as it changes shape which sheds debris off the filter and into the collection bin. The 7 gallon collection bin holds a large amount of debris and requires emptying only every 2 - 3 months for most homes. Permanent filter units like the PU298 also provide excellent motor protection as only filtered clean airflow is sent through the motors impeller system. The Triumph© HEPA filter media retains 99% of sub-micron sized particles which not only protects the suction motor but also allows venting of the power unit inside the garage or basement without the worry of fine dust escaping from the unit. Maintenance of the system involves unlatching the collection bin and dumping out the debris into a garbage bag. A fill level window on the collection bin allows you to see how much debris is inside the vacuum without taking off the bucket.
