Fein 9-77-25 Turbo III 15-Gallon 1.5-Horsepower Wet/Dry Vacuum with Auto-Start

Whether you’re a contractor or just have a small home shop, clean-up is one of the most important parts of the job. Sawdust is a carcinogen and a fire hazard, and you need to keep it out of your work area and especially your home. You could settle for the bare minimum and get a dry vac and run around your shop cleaning up every ten minutes, but it sure would be nice to get one that works as a dust collector and a wet/dry vac too. And if you’ve got a small home shop, why not find one that’s quiet enough to use inside the house as well?

Clean Up With the Ridgid WD1450 Wet Dry Vacuum

If you’re in the market for a wet dry vac for your garage or shop, you should think about what else you can use the machine for. Lots of people get wet dry vacs in emergency flooding situations or for home construction, but when that job’s done, what else can the machine do? There are so many wet dry vacs on the market, and they all do pretty much the same thing from a simple vacuuming perspective, but they also have such a variety of other functions, it’s really worth your time checking out the extras for each one of them.

Maybe your shop vac is too heavy to lug around, or maybe it’s too loud to use all day. Maybe you don’t even have a shop vac yet. There’s a good selection of small-capacity, high-utility shop vacs on the market, and sorting them all out can be a pain, especially when they’re still selling old models when new models are available.

The Bissell Garage Pro –  Wall Mounted, Compact Size, and Strong  Suction

If you’ve got a basement full of water or a medium-sized shop that you work in regularly, you need a big wet/dry vac with a large capacity, specialty filters, and a whole lot of power. But that’s a waste of a machine if you just want to do light cleaning in your garage or basement, or you need to clean out your car. (more…)

I don’t typically think of ‘handheld’ when I think of wet/dry vacs – but hey, why not? Wet/dry vacs are really convenient for cleaning up spills, and as long as the spill doesn’t involve your entire basement, a handheld is much easier than dragging out the shop vac. Another place for spills where a slim profile and light weight makes life easier is in the car. You can use your shop vac for that too, but that’s a lot of hose to wrangle, especially for just a little café latte or a spilt bag of potato chips on the floor. (more…)

The Hoover L2310 Garage Utility Vacuum – A Good Value Dry Garage Vacuum

In this economy, dropping $50 on an auto detail job seems a little extravagant. At the same time, now’s the time to really think about car maintenance to try to retain the value as long as possible. So why not save some of that maintenance money and put it into your own car care tools? You can do it yourself much more often and cheaper than the pros, and you can use the tools for a host of other purposes too.

Shop vacs used to be big, noisy things that you could only use in a shop, and only with hearing protection. Dragging a wet/dry shop vac into the house was a last resort. Nowadays people are using wet/dry vacs for just about everything. Anything that your grandmother would pull out the mop or broom for, we’re just dragging out the wet/dry vac. (more…)
