Ryobi 18V Hand Vacuum

As you know we have becoming huge fans of Ryobi.  Over the years Ryobi has really stepped up their game.  They now have over 50 different tools for their 18V one plus system and it doesn’t look like they are stopping. I know there isn’t much to talk about when it comes to handheld vacuums, but I will tell you this really surprised us.  I wouldn’t think this would have much suction, but it does a great job.  Get this, this vacuum only cost $25 at Home Depot.  Now if your looking for a handheld vac and have the...

Ridgid 18-Volt 3-Gal. Cordless Wet/Dry Vacuum WD0319

I love cordless vacuums because I hate dealing with a power cord.  It always seems like with a cord, I am getting it tangled up or it’s catching on something.  In the end I just end up swearing, cursing and breaking things, so I would like to thank Ridgid for making my life a little easier. The 3 gallon vac runs off your existing Ridgid 18V batteries, so no need to invest in any new batteries.  As you know, vacs take a lot of power to run, so the run time on vacuums are usually pretty short.  I am not sure...

Milwaukee M12 Compact Vacuum – 0850-20

Milwaukee just added a new tool to their ever growing M12 line.  This time they have the Milwaukee M12 Compact Vacuum – 0850-20.  This is the perfect vacuum for any contractor to carry in a bag.  Some times you don’t need that big bulky shop vac.  You might be drilling a hole or making a little mess here or there.  I like the fact you get a bunch of attachments with the tool, I just wish you would also get a tool that has small brush to protect certain surfaces when your vacuuming....

Black & Decker Platinum 20V Hand Vac Review BDH2000L

Not too long ago we checked out the Flex2000FL from Black and Decker which is part of their Platinum series.  Currently Black and Decker has three vacuums in this series all with a little bit of a twist.  The Flex has a detachable nozzle which makes this great for high spots and your automobile.  The other two vacuums are more of a traditional Dust Buster with a fixed nozzle.  One is the BDH2000L, which we will be reviewing here and the other is the BDH2000SL with a removable battery. If you have kids or have friends like Dan, you...

DeWALT DWV012 10 Gallon HEPA Dust Extractor with Automatic Filter Clean

Any vacuum will suck dust but before long the filter gets so clogged all your suction is lost.  The DWV012 has a two filter system that automatically cleans the HEPA filters giving you uninterrupted suction even in the most extreme situations.  It  makes a unique sound every 30 seconds when it cleans the filters.   Who hasn’t done some drywall work only to have their vacuum clog up.  Then you have to take it outside and bang the filter on the ground or use compressed air.  This creates massive dust flying everywhere and pretty much just creates havoc. The...

Black and Decker FLEX BDH2000FL Portable Vacuum – Review

Black and Decker pretty much invented the cordless vacuum market with the DustBuster.  Cordless vacuums take a lot of power and have been plagued by short battery life.  Well Black and Decker has decided to take its 20V Lithium Ion Technology knowledge and apply it to the Flex vacuum.  This gives a big increase in both power and run time over the previous 12V Ni-Cad batteries.  The new Flex is part of the Platinum series and it includes a non-removable 20v 1.5Ah lithium ion battery.  They have a few different models in the line  up, we decided to check...

Milwaukee 18V Cordless Wet/Dry Vacuum 0880-20

I recently upgraded my cordless tool set to the Milwaukee M18 line.  So far I have been very impressed by the Milwaukee line of tools, so I decided to finally get my first cordless vacuum.  I have used some other cordless vacuums in the past like the Dewalt and Ridgid, but this is mine.  I have to say this is my favorite. The Wet/Dry vacuum is shaped like a toolbox.  On one side of the vacuum is the inlet and on the opposite side is the blower.  On the left hand side of the vacuum is a storage place...
