LG Straps Cordless Vacuum Cleaners on Back of Climber to Scale Skyscraper

LG CordZero canister vacuum cleaners are not just great for cleaning. MacGyver approves.

LG Electronics set up an incredible stunt this week. Professional rock climber Sierra Blair-Coyle climbed up the side of a 140-meter high-rise building with using two cordless canister vacuum cleaners.

The LG CordZero canister vacuum cleaners made the suction pads stick to the glass surface of the skyscraper. The LG CordZero has built-in lithium-ion batteries. 

Lugging two canister vacuums up a 33-story office tower, the premium cordless vacuum cleaners created enough suction to support Blair-Coyle’s weight while she carefully climbed toward the roof. Blair-Coyle completed the climb in less than 30 minutes, stopping only once for a fresh pair of vacuums, successfully pulling off the first stunt of its kind.

LG says that the smart Inverter Motor offers the most powerful performance in the cordless vacuum category, combining high efficiency with durability in a compact size. The Smart Inverter Motor is on average 28 percent smaller, 24 percent lighter and 13 percent more efficient than conventional vacuum motors. Powering the motor is the highly efficient PowerPack 80V lithium-ion battery, which provides up to 40 minutes of power in regular mode after only a four-hour charge. 40 minutes is enough to clean my house. To not have to deal with a power cable can actually save me a couple minutes.

“We hoped to draw attention to the innovative technologies that power the appliances we so often take for granted and this project succeeded in doing just that,” said Simon Jeon, senior vice president of washing machine business unit at the LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We wanted to demonstrate that today’s vacuum cleaners include sophisticated technologies that can undertake extraordinary challenges and thanks to Sierra, I think the message came through loud and clear.”
