HW-27 Typhoon Vs MW-1

HW-27 Typhoon Vs MW-1

Postby Redsfan2144 » Tue Aug 08, 2017 1:48 pm

I have the option to buy a used Typhoon for the same price as a MW-1 Cyclone. The smaller footprint of the Cyclone appeals to me, but other than the pump, what are other keys differences? More power in one? Stronger bearing? Does one flat out do a better job than the other? Thanks!

IMHO, the HW 27 has better everything over the MW-1. Assuming the HW-27 is in good condition, it's no contest

Well my main concern is the vacuum itself, the bearing, and the motor. From reading, it seemed like the MW-1 had all the same minus the pump and a simpler cabinet. My only gripe is how big the HW-27 is.

I am fairly sure that the MW-1 and the HW-27 do not employ the same motor and vacuum.
