 ProTeam & Electrolux USA Team Up on the ProForce Upright 

ProTeam & Electrolux USA Team Up on the ProForce Upright

Few marriages could be deemed more unusual than that of ProTeam, the innovative backpack vacuum manufacturer, and Electrolux, now known as Aerus, the legendary vacuum cleaner and floor care products maker whose name has been synonymous with quality for over seven decades.

ProTeam and Aerus formed an alliance in 2001 to produce the ProForce Line of commercial-quality upright vacuums, a move that provides vacuum dealers a powerful synergy of quality and manufacturing experience that will translate into more sales.

Powerful Partnerships:
115 Years Of Experience
“We are pleased to be in a partnership with Aerus to develop a full national product line for vacuum dealers,” said Larry Shideler, chairman and CEO of ProTeam. “Our first effort together — the development of the line of ProForce upright vacuum cleaners — carries the mark of quality and value of both organizations.”

“We believe that an industry leader such as ProTeam will further Aerus’ goal
to continue delivering quality brand names at tremendous value for customers,” said Joseph P. Urso, Chairman and CEO of Aerus LLC. “This venture joins together two companies known for responding to customer needs in innovative ways.”

In partnership with Aerus, ProTeam culminates more than 115 years of
vacuum manufacturing experience to bring customers the finest uprights
available with numerous state-of-the-art features to ensure peak performance and convenience.

Shideler added, “For example, in tests conducted at an independent testing lab, the ProTeam ProForce upright vacuum surpassed the soil removal of the leading two-motor commercial upright vacuum.”

The ProForce Advantage
The ProForce 140, 140X and 140XP are high performance dual-motor
vacuums with a 16-inch cleaning path. The ProForce 140 provides 86 CFM
and 67 inches of static lift. The ProForce 140X and 140XP both provide 95
CFM and 73 inches of static lift.

The ProForce 140, 140X and 140XP vacuums feature:

  • Ergonomically designed handle for greater operator comfort
  • Geared, non-slip low-wear timing belt for consistent RPM, extended belt life and reduced downtime
  • Floating power head that adjusts automatically for different surfaces
  • Precision wooden brush dowel that helps eliminate static buildup/discharge
  • Chevron brush design that collects/directs dirt into the airflow for one-pass cleaning
  • 1.5 inch diameter duct hose for increased airflow and reduced clogging
  • Four-ply (“Germgrabber”™) filter for capturing most common particles and microscopic organisms for better indoor air quality
  • Ribbed filter compartment that creates cyclonic airflow in filter bag,
    increasing filter effectiveness
  • Self-sealing filter bag for a dust-free change
  • Filter bag lockout that prevents operation of vacuum without filter in place
  • Intake filter for extra protection of the motor
  • After filter for better filtration efficiency and less noise
  • Low four-inch profile and L-shaped design for vacuuming under and around furniture
  • Carry handle for transporting up and down steps
  • Easy-to-reach three-position switch
  • Five-year warranty.


  • The ProForce 140XP features onboard tools, including a telescoping
    lightweight metal wand with stretch hose and 2-in-1 upholstery/dust brush and narrow space/crevice tool. An optional tool kit can be attached to the 140 and 140X.
  • The ProForce 140X and 140XP have an Electronic System Performance indicator that alerts the operator to a full filter bag, airflow restriction or jammed brush roll
  • The ProForce 140 weighs 15 lbs, the 140X weighs 15.8 lbs and the ProForce 140XP weighs 18.4 lbs.

A Fine Line –
Home, Professional, And Commercial
“ProTeam’s new identity as ‘The Vacuum Company’ demonstrates our strong commitment to produce a comprehensive line of commercial-quality vacuum cleaners for every need,” said Shideler. “ProTeam’s expansion plans include producing a full and growing line of high-end vacuums, including backpacks, hip-style, canister and upright vacuums.”

“The ProForce is another great addition to ProTeam’s lineup,” said Lynn
Fehrer, vacuum shop coordinator for ProTeam. “Vacuum dealers now have a complete selection of ProTeam products to offer residential customers.”

Other recent additions to the Home Professional Line include the Sierra backpack vacuum, the Alpine hip-style machine, and the Wombat hp canister.

In addition, ProTeam recently added to its commercial line the Hummer XL
and Li’l Hummer II backpack vacuums, and the Wombat cm canister. The
ProClean hip-style machine, and the award-winning ProVac backpack vacuum for restaurants, have been available since 1997, Fehrer added.
