Husky Storm Central Vacuum any good @ Costco?

I did a search on rfd but nothing came up... Oddly enough even google search for reviews didn't bring up anything either. I need a central vac for my new house and most people here seem to like Cana-vac. My home is 2500sq not including the basement of course, and based on some comments I should be looking for a central vac with at least 700 airwatts.

Husky-Storm Central Vac @ costco has really good reviews and due to costco's return policy I'm leaning towards this one plus its priced at $750. Install Kit is another $85.00

If anyone has purchased this or knows about it I would love to hear your thoughts.

Just keep in mind that Airwatts doesn't mean a lot and completely falls apart when the machine is under load.. meaning actually trying to suck something through the hose.

We bought this vacuum in October for our home (new construction). It is a fantastic Vaccum. Great suction, tools and not very loud. I use it a couple times a week (2 small kids). We have a 2400 sq. ft home and it works great. Husky is made by Nuera Air (same company as Duovac). They are made is canada and have great customer service. You would not be disappointed with this vacuum.

I emailed Neura about the specs on this vacuum as I am currently looking to replace our central vacuum. I've looked at the Beam 275A, CanaVac 399LS and this one. Both Beam and CanaVac uses a tangential bypass motor, whereas the Husky Storm uses a flow-through. Based on the research I did regarding motors, flow-through motors are not as long lasting as bypass. This vacuum is specifically designed for Costco.ca; price wise this isn't bad but I would probably pick the CanaVac 399LS over this one. The CanaVac has lower air wattage (this is a marketing strategy and has absolutely no meaning) but the suction is as powerful as the Husky. Better warranty on the body from CanaVac too.

How much did you pay for the CanaVac?

Haven't bought the vacuum yet. I was using this website https://www.the-vacmaster.ca/cana-vac-3 ... cuum-unit/ as the basis for my pricing. It's $500 for just the unit itself, another ~200 for the accessories.

The two packaged deals I'm looking at is the Package B for $700 and package C for $750. Have to check out the powerhead in a store before I decide.

Package B (https://www.the-vacmaster.ca/central-va ... package-b/)
Power Plus Electric Package
30' OR 35' crushproof, 3-way switch electric hose
Powerhead with light
2 sets of metal telescopic wands
4 piece deluxe tool set
Hose hanger
1 year warranty

Package C (https://www.the-vacmaster.ca/central-va ... package-c/)
German Electric Hose Package
30' OR 35' Crushproof Electric Hose with 3-Way Switch
German Wessel-Werk Powerhead with light
5-Level Height Adjustment
Cogged Belt with Protector
Stainless Steel -Telescopic Wand with Quick Release
Stainless Steel Telescopic Wand for Tools
Deluxe Tool Set
Hose Hanger
3 Year Warranty

EDIT:Just bought the Package C for $750 +Tax, came out to $847. Decided to switch to the 35 foot hose which was another $28 (tax included). Free shipping like they advertised on the website. There store is in Markham, I live in Mississauga.

How about the Electrolux at Costco? Any good? I know it claims to handle a house of 7000 square feet but what can they really handle. House is around 4000 square feet with basement.

If you mean this one: http://www.costco.ca/Electrolux-Central ... 07076.html , then the answer is that it is very good. I can only comment on how it works in a 2300 sqft house, but assuming that it is enough power it has been a great vacuum so far. The cleaning performance is great, but the most impressive thing is how quiet it is. The vacuum unit itself is so quiet that the rush of air into the end of the hose/attachment is louder than the unit in the garage.

I will second this, the house we moved into had central vac but no attachments......figured for the cost of buying attachments separately we might as well get a brand new unit................we bought the electrolux at costco (got it for $100 off too!), and it works great so far

How big is your house? Curious to see how the power is.

Some reason the link doesn't work for the $100 off one. :(

I bought a Husky Central Vac from a local dealer 10 years ago and it's worked perfectly ever since. However, I think manufacturer has moved offshore since then and the current units might not be exactly the same.

But, if it's Costco I would not worry. They stand behind their products better than most retailers.
