Portability and Versatility

Our Opinion

The VacMaster VP321 commercial packaging machine is capable of handling the heavy use associated with large scale food processing and restaurants. It does it while costing hundreds of dollars less than most of its competition. It is constructed of heavy-duty stainless steel and features a powerful 1.5 HP oil vacuum pump. It does, however, weigh nearly double what it’s competitors weigh, but as long as you have a place to put it, that should not be much of an issue.
