Nilfisk IVB5M Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner Replaced By Attix 44 Infiniclean

SKU 302001892NAK

Nilfisk IVB5 M Wet and Dry Industrial Vacuum Cleaner

Replaced By The Nilfisk 40 litre TYPE M HS42 L40 MC here

Andy says the Wet and Dry IVB5 M is perfect for users who need big capacity and features that focus on efficiency. This is our most silent vacuum ever, with superior suction performance, durable plastic container, automatic filter cleaning, anti-static capability and more.

The 45 litre container found on the IVB5 M allows you to work a long time without emptying the container. If your vacuum cleaning tasks are 'high volume', such as being used as a dust extractor this is a perfect match for your task.

Operating costs are minimized with the washable PET Fleece filter elements, and the low working noise level lets you work when others are nearby without disturbing them.

Automatic On/Off operation is great for people who use the machine with electric hand tools because starting or stopping the tool starts and stops the vacuum as well.

An accessory Airbox is available which performs the same function when using pneumatic tools.


  • Industrial specifications, robust construction, and powerful define the IVB5 M.
  • XtremeClean. Fully automatic filter cleaning system (on many models) takes care of filter cleaning tasks in just a few seconds without interrupting your work.
  • Washable PET fleece filter for high efficiency and low maintenance costs.
  • SilentPower. High performance that is seen, but not heard.
  • 45 litre tough plastic container and a filter bag for the ultimate in effective filtration and working efficiency.

The Vacuum Doctor’s Personal Thoughts.

An eyeful is better than an earful!! So view the video on the Nilfisk-Alto Attix Xtream vacuum system.

We also sell the Nilfisk-ALTO XTREME 560-21 XC version as well, and the Nilfisk-ALTO XTREME 761-21XC

The IVB 5 by Nilfisk-ADVANCE (See PDF). This is a quiet 57 dB(A) 70 litre heavy duty commercial vacuum cleaner with a 1500 Watt motor giving an airflow of 60 litre/sec at a vacuum of 23 kPa.

With its large rear wheels and front lockable castors, it's very maneuverable. It has a 7.5m cable, and for your protection it comes with a 12 month warranty covering faulty manufacture and workmanship. It is best supplied with a stainless steel tubed, trade and industrial hose and nozzle kit. Replacement filters are also affordable enough to have a couple which can be rotated each job, vacuumed, washed and dried enabling them to last a long time, and they are easily fitted by the operators.

This machine differs from its competitors by being fitted with an automatic filter cleaning mechanism which works fantastically well as demonstrated by the video above. In the video, a WHOLE 25 Kg. bag of cement is vacuumed up and the machine doesn't lose suction whatsoever. Then when the bag is emptied, the machine is opened showing it full of the cement powder. The machine automatically blows back through the filter every 30 seconds keeping it clean and retaining highest efficiency.

I've actually carried out a similar job where I sucked up 50 litres of powder-coating paint out of a machine in one hit. The clean side of the filter was as clean as a whistle afterwards, and there was no loss of suction at all during the task.



But firstly let the semi "automatic" filter cleaning mechanism go through several 20 second cycles, by starting the machine with your hand blocking off the hose inlet. This will make it "WHOOMP" loudly twice, and blow the dust from the pleats of the filters. If this hasn't been done whilst it's been used, just shallow pulses, with not much 'WHOOMP" the dust will have become packed tightly into the pleats.

When these come to the workshop, with reports of poor suction, that's what we do first, and most of the time great suction returns after half a dozen twenty second cycles.


DO NOT bash these filters on walls or the ground, the pleats will distort, and possibly split and dirt will be drawn into the motor compartment.


When removing the filters from the motorhead, keep the filter downwards, and pull the cartridge down, so dust falls away from the entrance to the motor, and doesn't contaminate inside the motor head.
