What are the machines that vacuum out attic insulation called?

I set one up for a remodel contractor I worked for about 10 years ago, he needed it often; http://www.harborfreight.com/1-hp-mi...tor-94029.html hooked it up with the cloth bag above a standard plastic garbage bag (contractor size) with quick connects/pipe stand so person below could compact the f.g. occasionally. 100' of 4" flex hose and adapter/8' extension pipe nozzle (local contractor supply store). Then Sears came out with the portable leaf vacuum/blower...



If any ads are present below my answer or words underlined/colored, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed/linked to, they are there without my consent.
WELCOME to the forums, if I forgot to say it!

I've got one of those blowers and I wouldn't say it's got enough power to pull from too long of a hose. But then I was using it to handle woodworking debris not fiberglass.
