This is the best wet/dry vac I ever used. I use it in plumbing work daily, it's powerfull enough to retrieve 3 inch metal bolts dropped down a pipe by mistake. It also doubles as a pretty good leaf blower. Only reasons I didn't give it five stars across the board are the on/off switch wore out prematurely ( I fabricated a heavy duty metal one) and the lid clasps are not sturdy enough to carry the unit safely with water in it (not good in a customer's house) BUT it is so powerful, so quiet, and so stowable in my van it is the only vac that meets my needs. I stow the hose inside the unit without the wand extension which is much more efficient than the provided hooks to wrap the hose all around the outside

I bought this vacuum for use in my home. It performs better than my Eureka canister model that was 3 times the cost. The suction power is great. It does not clog. It's very portable even though it does not come with casters. It also has the blower feature which most home vacuums aren't equipped with. This vacuum exceeds what I was expecting!

My new shop vac reminds me of a little bulldog - short and squat and mighty. I am using it in the garage and really like it so far, although I have not yet uised the wet vac part. It looks fairly simple though. I didn't have any trouble with the directions and setting up the vac.

I am particularly interested in the blower on the Shop Vac Brute 5 gallon. Can you tell me if the blower shoots out hot/warm air? Would the blower be more powerful than when using a hair dryer? I need this because I plan to use the blower to dry large animals. Thank you.

  • A. Wow, what a neat idea! The Brute pushes out 175 cubic feet of air every minute, and with a good amount of force. That's a lot of air movement, enough to "fill" a van every minute. Much more volume than any hairdryer I've ever seen. You would likely be pushing the water off the animal. Similar to the dryer-tubes at an automated car-wash. The is air is not warmed, and the exhaust doesn't get warm even after running the unit for a while. Not at all like a hair dryer. Depending how you use, and more importantly maintain, the Shop Vac, dust could exit the blower and end up on the animal. One more thought, most Shop Vac's will be much louder than a hair dryer - creating a risk of startling the animal. The Brute is quiet for a Shop Vac, but louder than a hair dryer. All that said, it may work well if the animals can tolerate the drying. Just take precautions to protect yourself. If you do try it, be sure to post back how it worked! I'm certain the Shop Vac corporation would be interested as well. I've found their website helpful, and they regularly run "best use of a Shop Vac" story contests. Good Luck!!
