Just wondering, has anyone bought a vacuum cleaner for their workshop / DIY project recently?


I am after a vacuum that


- must blow ( FYI a great way to clean my pigeon holes out),   


- needs to be mobile i.e. not a fixed location vacuum unit with hoses that I can lug around?


- bagless


- water ???  optional




FYI - I will be holding funeral for my old Electrolux vacuum.
I inherited it from my parents and is at least 40+ years old
So its like a death in family
My fault, I dropped it and the plastic inside that holds onto the aft motor unit broke :-(

We bought it for large area use 3-4x a week. It seems to work well. If you want more grunt, you can have the slightly more expensive model.

I got a cheap wet or dry ryobi to use as a sucker for my sander, seems to work fine, but like most of them changing between wet and dry is a timeconsuming exercise that is messy so I have only used it for wet once.
