Turbine Power for Extreme Lifting Force ---  Possibly the most powerful 120 volt 1-Motor Vacuum Cleaner in the World!  While being able to collect general debris and ultra fine dry powders, the HP1700 is specifically designed to vacuum heavy sludge, tons of dirt, rock, stone, shale, granite, etc. from 12" x 10' holes ~ continuously.

Filter System - AIRFlow HEPA Filtration ~ Expect to collect over 140 lbs. of concrete dust with little if any suction drop.  Turn the vacuum off then on again and the filter bag will release any caking by deflating and re-inflating itself.  Turn on the vacuum and suction power actually improves!  The 24 gallon collection tank will fill completely, to its inlet port with maybe a minimal drop in suction power.

Filter System includes:  HEPA Cartridge Filter, Clean Extreme Filter Collection Bags (3).  Any type of debris, from dry concrete powder to moist or oily debris to hot mastics --- everything is collected and contained within the Clean Extreme Filter Bag WITH minimal suction loss AND with everything completely contained within the Clean Extreme Filter Bag.  HD Clean Extreme Filter Bag removed from tank - holds 140lbs. of dry concrete dust - inside of the tank remains clean. ADDITIONAL BENEFITS INCLUDE:

  • Clean Extreme Filter Bag completely fills - to the inlet port on the tank ~ Providing long operating times without suction drop
  • The outside of the filter bag stays clean
  • The inside of the tank stays clean
  • The HEPA Cartridge Filter stays clean (expect to replace it in two or three years)
  • Removal, handling & disposal of the completely contained debris is clean, easy and without a mess.

The HP1700 is our most powerful "lift" capacity vacuum for extracting extremely heavier weighted objects or debris - while still maintaining a compact and portable size.

Based on the design & field experiences of our DD2400 3-Motor Vacuums, the HP1700 boasts a turbine motor for even greater suction lift than the 3-stage motor that is used in the 12 gallon DD1500 1-Motor Model.  Included the Power Station (cylinder insert) and you'll increase the vacuum's overall suction performance, efficiency operation and collection yields.

Specifically designed for vacuuming heavier weighted debris such as Tons of Heavy Sludge, Rocks, Stone, Dirt and Granite from 12" x 10' hose continuously . . . Over 30 to 50 tons of earth are routinely removed from such sized holes for post hole drilling operations.  Gutter cleaning (using 100' hoses) and sludge and grease pits are other common applications.

And for vacuuming the finest of powders, like all Dust Director Vacuums the HP1700 includes AIRFlow HEPA Filtration so you can also use the same vacuum to extract volumes of dry powders without incurring suction drop.  Or use the same filter to collect any other type of debris, including sharp objects, moist debris, hot mastics, etc. - without incurring suction drop or without damaging or compromising the HEPA cartridge filter.

As efficient and as simple and versatile as the filtering system is, all filters - by their purpose - eventually get dirty.  But with the Extreme Power provided by the USA Designed 3-Stage 1700 Watt Turbine Motor, the collection tank will fill before suction drop occurs.



AIRFLOW HEPA FILTER SYSTEM - Background, Filter Information

Most people purchase a vacuum cleaner based on improvements or features of the vacuum cleaner.  The vacuum's cartridge filter alone, applied with a PTFE membrane, will increase the vacuum's performance by as much as 25 percent - thereby increasing production rates for your entire operational process.

AIRFlow HEPA Filtration - the Ultimate Filter System?  The AIRFlow HEPA Filter System includes a HEPA Efficiency Pleated Cartridge Filter and your choice to use the Clean Extreme Filter Collection Bags or the Self-Cleaning Flutter Filter:


With a Clean Extreme Filter Bag installed you can expect to collect large volumes of silica dust - to the tank's inlet port - without incurring suction drop or without the filter bag tearing or accidentally bursting inside the tank.

Improve Productivity.  How many times are you stopping to clean or maintain the vacuum's filter or having to empty the tank all too often?  With a Clean Extreme Filter Bag installed, suction power stops when dust begins to exit through the tank's 2" inlet port --- fine powders collected and contained within the Clean Extreme Filter Bag will not cause blinding (i.e. the powder will not cake the bag's lining, suction is not diminished.)

When vacuuming any type of power, for hours at a time and you happen to notice suction drop . . . With a Dust Director Vacuum you simply turn off the vacuum, doing so will cause the Clean Extreme Filter Bag to deflate;  when you turn the vacuum on the bag inflates and suction resumes 100% ~ Guaranteed.

Are you grinding dry and you come across wet concrete, stone or mortar?  No problem - Clean Extreme Filter Bags work even better when the surface is damp!

Besides maintaining suction and collecting large volumes of powder without suction drop, Clean Extreme Filter Bags also collect:  Moist debris, sharp objects and hot mastics ALL AT THE SAME TIME.  Additionally, when you remove the filter bag you'll notice that the inside that the inside of the tank, the outside of the bag and the HEPA cartridge filter are "clean":

Clean Extreme Filter Bags:  Collects anything - powders to sludge - they fill to capacity, powders do not blind suction, no accidental bursting or tearing inside the tank or while being handled during disposal, and everything stays clean ~ Guaranteed.

Extreme Filter Bags install into wet/dry vacuums with an inlet port - Tanks stay clean, cartridge filters stay clean - even after collecting 140 lbs. of dry concrete dust.

HEPA Cartridge Filter Stays Clean

Clean/Extreme Filter Bag:  Large collection yields, everything stays clean including cartridge filter, tank & the outside of the bag.

FLUTTER FILTER - Optional Filter.

Flutter Filter Basket - Constantly shakes, beats & flutters, prevents filter blinding without electronic pulsing.The Flutter Filter is a self-cleaning drop-in filter that may be used instead of the Clean Extreme Filter Collection Bag.  As soon as the vacuum is turned on the tightly weaved "but loose fitting" Flutter Filter beings to flutter and shake, using the air speed and turbulence inside the collection tank to create its motion.

Constantly and naturally in motion, dry debris and roughly 50% of the powders are kept from blinding the surface of the Flutter Filter and causing suction drop.  

Like a Clean Extreme Filter Collection Bag, any accumulation or blinding on the surface of the Flutter Filter is naturally released when the vacuum is turned off and on:  When the vacuum is on the Flutter Filter raises, when the vacuum is turned on the filter drops . . . effectively releasing any caking.

Additionally, to help prevent blinding while the vacuum is on, a floating filter cage inside the Flutter Filter swings freely and loosely as it shakes and knocks itself about using the air speed and turbulence inside the collection tank

When you're on a job site it's nice to have options . . . with a Dust Director® Industrial Vacuum Cleaner you're able to use either the Clean Extreme Filter Bags or the Flutter Filter.

Clean/Extreme Filter Collection Bag.  HD, cloth filter bag installs into any W/D vacuum, maintains suction performance, collect dry, wet, sharp debris.The Clean Extreme Filter Bags are the absolute best filter system on the market for collecting "large volumes" of silica dust while maintaining maximum suction performance and for keeping everything clean inside the tank and even during removing and handling ~ everything is kept clean and there isn't a mess.

But the Flutter Filter works impressively as well, reduces or eliminates the cost of replacement filter bags, uses no electronics to shake or pulse itself clean and it is completely re-useable and washable.

Flutter Filter - Specifications, Additional Features:

  • High Efficiency Filter Media, 96.5 @ 0.3 microns

  • Dry powders do not impregnate the material like commonly used "felt" filters

  • Keeps the vacuum's HEPA Cartridge Filter from caking.  While it may become dusty it will not cake.

  • Durable - Completely Washable

  • Versatile - Collects dry or wet debris without compromising its effectiveness.




Poured in place urethane gasket, beneath the head of a Dust Director Vacuum.Lighted on/off Motor Switches.  HD, industrial, water resistant - Completely weatherproofed "on/off" switches.

Urethane Motor Head Gasket.  Beneath the motor head of every Dust Director® Vacuum is a poured-in-place urethane gasket that is used to ensure a positive airtight seal between the motor head and its tank.  Commonly used shop vacuums and even higher priced vacuums will use foam or nothing at all.

The urethane gasket ensures against dust leakage into your work area and prevents even the slightest loss of vacuum which would naturally reduce suction power.  Many wonder how the suction of a Dust Director Vacuum seems so much more powerful than other brands, one of the reasons is the urethane gasket.



POWER STATION - For Increase Productivity, Performance & Collection Yields - - -  To be able to work 33% longer . . .  

--  Add a Power Station to a Dust Director Vacuum  --


IMPORTANT:  When extracting heavy debris, the Power Station is required for the successful operation of the HP1700;  as is the Flutter Filter (above).

Power Stations. Maybe the most important wet/dry vacuum accessory in the industry!

PS-300 Power Station, for use with any 1, 2 or 3-Motor Dust Director VacuumsA Power Station is simply an cylinder or an extension tank that you insert between the collection tank and motor head.  Installed, collection yields, productivity and suction performance all improve 33%!



Bottom third of the Motor Heads and the HEPA Cartridge Filter consume 33% space in the collection tanks.How Does It Work?  While the AIRFlow HEPA Filter System in a Dust Director® Vacuum enables you to completely fill the collection tank (to its inlet port) without incurring suction drop, when you install a Power Station, 1/3 of the motor head and 100% of the cartridge filter are now removed from the collection tank.

Benefits of Using a Power Station with a Dust Director Vacuum.  With 1/3 of the motor head and 100% of the cartridge filter removed from the collection tank, you achieve the following benefits:

  • Power Station installed on a 1-Motor Dust Director Vacuum.Cartridge Filters Last 20 Times Longer ~ Maybe Indefinitely.  With the HEPA cartridge filter now in its own air space, completely removed from inside the collection tank - away from direct contamination of the incoming debris, the filter stays clean.

    This is especially important when vacuuming damaging adhesives and mastics, which have always been a problem with filters in vacuum cleaners.

    With the HEPA Cartridge Filter in its own protected airspace, away from direct debris contamination, the cartridge filter is simply able to breath or work easier - it will not become suffocated from the collection bag as the bag would otherwise wrap itself around the filter as it too continues to fill ~ without suction drop!

  • 33% Increase in Collection Yields.  With more room in the collection tank, the filter bag is now able to collect 33% more dust - without blinding or accidentally tearing or bursting while the vacuum is operating.

  • 33% Increase in Productivity.  By being able to collect 33% more, you're now able to work longer (i.e. you will not be stopping as often to change the filter bag or empty the tank.)

  • 33% Decrease in Filter Bag Cost.  By being able to collect 33% more - in the same filter bag - filter bag consumption drops 33%!

Power Station installed on a 3-Motor Dust Director Vacuum.


Bonuses of Using a Power Station:  Motor life and motor performance improve - - -  The motors simple operate more efficiently as they are not being overworked.  Hence, they do not overheat and thus they'll last longer.

And with the cartridge filter out-of-the-way, and operating cleaning (its stays close to looking new), the vacuum's powerful suction power is maintained - naturally, without using electronics to shake, pulse or clean the filter.


When Do You Use a Power Station?  Any time you want to increase collection yields, productivity, vacuum performance AND reduce filter bag consumption - All by 33%.  But on smaller projects, you may not want or feel the need to use the Power Station.  And on those occasions and you're still able to collect 140 pounds of dry powder and debris in the Clean Extreme Filter Bags ~ Without Suction Drop.
