    Has anyone found one that they like to use?

    I am trying to find out if anyone has found a small wet/dry battery powered vacuum. I have a small one that is corded but sometimes it is a pain in the…. to find outlets which are available and not going to trip breakers to connect to.

    We have a Dewalt one at work. It’s handy, but suction is weak compared to bigger ones.

    I usually ask someone in the kitchen staff to hold the cord’s plug, then turn it on. That’s just my own d-r-y humor.

    As of this date I do not know of a quality wet dry vacuum that is battery powered for our industry. I do have a shoulder pack Craftsman that’s 115 volt and is adequate, but have never found a battery version. Soot and water are opposite ends of our work, but something we have to deal with.Let alone the fine dust we see with condensers and bakeries.

    Let us know if you find something.

    Because of the difficulty of having the small accessories, filters, water shut offs and hoses for a vacuum, I carry a box just for it. Adapters down to 3/8 inch and extensions are vital to me. The filters on any vacuum plug up quick with fine particulate on any vacuum. There fore we have to have a bunch of extra filters. Add water to the mix and you have real problems. Mines a 2.5 gallon, but I also have a 30 gallon Milwaukee stainless. But your not going to move it to job’s easily. The big floor squeegee is is the best though. The throw away bags are a bit expensive but the secondary filter is washable.
