Prefilter Hepa Vacuum

Dustless Technologies offers a wet/dry vac with a dedicated HEPA filter (model 16006) to meet the requirements of the new EPA lead rule, says the manufacturer. The unit includes an inexpensive disposable "micro-prefilter" ($11) that is easily replaced to extend the life of the more expensive HEPA filter ($150). An optional beater-bar attachment for dislodging ground-in dust and dirt is available.
