A Vacuum that Won’t Break, For Less!
By Monica Resinger

If you are having troubles with vacuum cleaners breaking, why not get a Shop 
Vac?  They are made to vacuum up nuts and bolts, so how could you possibly 
break it?  The best part is that, the last time I checked they were only $35 - 
$40 (this was a few years ago, but they shouldn’t be much more now)!  

I used to purchase regular upright vacuum cleaners and found that a penny or 
pebble would break them. In fact, I went through 2 of these type of vacuums in 
one year until I listened to my neighbor’s advice of getting a Shop Vac.

I have the 2.25 peak horsepower Shop Vac and it is very powerful and does a 
better job than the vacuum cleaners I owned in the past.  It will also vacuum 
wet stuff but I have never used it for that.  

Another money- and frustration-saving benefit is that they don’t take bags!  A
ll the stuff goes into the canister and when it gets full (or preferably 
before), you just dump it like a trash can.  It does have filters that can be 
replaced but I have never had to replace mine; I only clean them.  

Mine has a handle on top to carry it around easily and it also has an 
attachment holder.

I'm 5' 9" and I had to stoop a little with the attachments that came with it. 
 I had an extra tube extender which brought it to a good height for me.  The 
extra attachments (including the tube-extender) are sold separately for around 
$15 - $20.  

The cord on mine is short so I have it plugged into a heavy-duty, 3-pronged 
extension cord so I can move it easily throughout the house.  

I highly recommend Shop Vacs.  They are so inexpensive (even if you have to 
buy an extension cord and extra attachments) and are so tough that you really 
can't go wrong.
