Firefighting Equipment:

Information about our range of PPV’s
Super vac PPV’s are powered with either electric or petrol motors, and are available in 16, 18, 20 & 24 inch versions.


Step brake positively locks both wheels into position for uneven and rough terrain.

Full roll cage frame design (all working components are inside the roll cage frame). Hammer Tone Powder coat finish for durability. Protects the unit from the rigours of fire-ground abuse, especially the fan shroud. The fan shroud plays an essential role in maintaining the all important quality of the air- stream. A dented or damaged shroud results in air-stream turbulence negatively affecting the efficiency of the fan.

Precision spun steel shroud for maximum air movement and durability.

Heavy guage steel grill for added safety. Baked-on powder coat paint for a long lasting finish.

The heart of these units is the cast aluminium seven airfoil blade. Custom designed for maximum air flow and exclusively cast at Super Vac’s in-house foundry. Can withstand higher ambient heat. Gets you closer to the action for longer – more efficient ventilation.

Shroud tilt mechanism inside the frame adjustable to four angle positions:(20°, 10°, 0° and -10°)

Optional light kit

Direct drive with less parts and better balance. Improved reliability. Less maintenance.

Solid cushion tyres. No more maintenance or flat tyres. Rear positioned wheels allow the fan to easily negotiate stairs, curbs, hoses and other obstacles while reducing the chance of damage to the fan shroud. When repositioning the fan during a structure fire, with a Super Vac, you don’t have to turn your back on the fire and obstruct the air stream.

Accessory Options: Easily convert your Super Vac PPV into a High Expansion Foam Generator. Simply fit HEFG attachment to any Super Vac PPV.

Collapsible handle for easy stowage.
