Re: Favorite boat vacuum cleaner

I have a few Ryobi tools so I use their "dustbuster" style vac for small stuff. I also bring our Dyson from home when we travel. Works well for us.

Here is the comparison of Dyson vs Shark
Dyson might be incredible, but I can’t imagine it’s any better than our Shark.��

Re: Favorite boat vacuum cleaner

1 gallon shop vac (off brand) for wet / dry jobs.

Rigid (Home Depot) 18v cordless. It has great suction, the prefilter needs to be wiped clean more than I prefer, but I use it often. Same lithium batteries as my other cordless tools. Forever warranty, including batteries, if bought with a set. Strict registrations requirements but so worth it.

We got rid of all brooms and dust pans on the boat.

Ozito shop vac.
Like all ozito product they have a 3 year replacement warranty which I have used on power tools without a problem.
Only in Australia I think and a bit big for most.

Re: Favorite boat vacuum cleaner

Like A64 pilot, I have a Milwaukee 28 Volt: https://www.milwaukeetool.com/Produc...acuums/0780-20
Positives: wet AND dry, large capacity container, very good suction, very good blowing (I have x8 large Easystow fenders), with 3 Amp/hr battery can easily do whole of boat, plus more.
On the negative side: was expensive, quite large to store, quite loud.
Conclusion: am happy with all that.

Re: Favorite boat vacuum cleaner

This is what I have - they changed the color from red to a fancy blue, but it is the same thing.

There are a few shortcomings with this setup - the first is no beater bar.

You can stick one of these on the end if you make an adapter
Another thing is that it stores very compactly, but it is a lot of fooling around to set it up, use it, and put it away.
One last shortcoming, it runs on 110V - meaning you either kill your house batteries or only use it when 110V is available.
That is why I also have a Dirt Devil Gator - it does a very good job in the boat and is easy to put away/get out, and it has Ni-Cds for power.

Re: Favorite boat vacuum cleaner

If I learned anything from this thread it's a corded one. He mostly talks about uprights and canisters, but maybe something in there will fit your needs.

I own the one you're looking at and it's not what I would call BIFL. Black and Decker make pretty cheap stuff. It worked okay for about a year.

Re: Favorite boat vacuum cleaner

I have a corded (110v) Red Devil hand held vac on board for 20 years. Aside from replacing the drive belt twice during that period it continues to work flawlessly. It is versatile and powerful. If it ever dies I'd buy another immediately! JMHO
