Vacuum cleaners

From: Misa Tamura <mtamura<-at->

I am currently looking for a vacuum cleaner which withstands long
hours of use to clean large objects such as canoes and boats. The
specifications required are: variable speed control, HEPA filter as
well as the motor powerful enough to carry out up to 8 hours of
vacuuming a day. Those are a little far-fetched for a normal museum
vac to achieve.  We looked into Nilfisk GM 80. However,
unfortunately Nilfisk UK does not offer GM 80 with variable speed
control.  Nilfisk IVB 3 H&M were suggested as an alternative. We are
not very familiar with this product, therefore, could anyone who is
familiar with IVB 3 H and/or M please share your experience in using

I'll also be grateful if you suggest another vac available in the UK
which meets the specs listed above.
