coolvac12 copyIf you are a contractor that gets an occasional insulation removal job, this machine is perfect! With good production and an excellent price point, this insulation vacuum will give your business the flexibility to take on retrofit and insurance jobs.

I bought my first Insulation Blower Machine CM1500 from Barry. Barry was very professional and responsive to my phone calls also he helped me to choose right machine with asking me all the question. As I grew my business, I needed an Insulation vacuum machine, and needless to say who do I buy from is Barry! Again he was very helpful with all questions and concern and choosing right machine. I say if you need any insulation Barry is the guy you want talk to. Shawn Ashraf, The Attic Pros

We were extracting insulation from a building. My daughter was in the attic. We heard a loud bang at the vacuum. She had sucked up a half a brick and it shot right through the machine. We inspected the vacuum and we were surprised that there was no damage. This machine has more power than we ever expected! Matt Harvey, Port Huron, Michigan


  • A A generous, 6 inch opening and turbo-blades combine for high volume production that matches blowers with more horsepower.
  • C Forward Curve 3/16 inch turbo blade increases vacuum power substantially and moves product along with minimal clogging. Made of Hardox steel (3 times the abrasion resistance as normal steel)
  • inside-isolatedB A 1/4″ Hardox steel strip lines the chamber to protect it from wear. Nails debris and abrasive fiber like rockwool and fiberglass will destroy the chamber housing over time. (We no longer offer the replaceable strips as the Hardox makes them unncessary)

  • 18 inch dia. abrasion resistant fan blade, 3/16 thick blades w/ solid robotic welds, dynamic computer balanced, turbo-sonic FC fan blade.
  • 6 inlet and outlet for high production. (Optional deluxe electric start & hour meter.)
  • Weight 190 lbs. Dimensions 32 long x 26 wide x 37 high.

The CoolVac11 has now replaced the CoolVac12. This video is a walk around of the older machine. There is no performance difference. The older machine had a LTE engine which sometimes made it difficult to find service. The 11hp Briggs/Stratton is a great performer.
