Given that today is my birthday, Melanie and Dane got me a little present. My old shop vac has been great, but it’s on it’s last legs. Since it was a wet/dry, it has done yeoman’s work sucking up the last of the water when I’ve had to pump out the boat. Since the motor and bearings seem about shot, its now been replaced.

The Amazon link (sometimes) shows a red one; mine’s blue and was somewhat cheaper at Lowes.

I like the small vacs for around the house/around the boat work. The large units are too hard to move around and deal with. The small ones have to be emptied more, but I can pick it up and go where I want.

Played with this one for a minute in the house tonight and it really sucks (and blows out the other side).

Money = $20
