If you think of having to clean up a giant mess, you would likely turn to a shop vacuum. They’re pretty heavy-duty and can handle just about anything, whether it be wet or dry, whereas your regular old dust-sucker can’t. If you don’t have one yet, you have some tough decisions to deal with. Should you choose a lower quality one, it likely will lose suction rather quickly, and a high grade is going to cost you a pretty penny.
While it may be a bit on the higher end of things, the SpeedClean BucketVac is a portable and effective way to get the job done. But! There’s a twist. Instead of having two halves of a whole that can only function when pieced together, you can instead use any 5 gallon bucket to act as a receptacle for whatever needs to be sucked up. Any leaks can be sucked up at 30 gallons a minute, and it also has the ability to pick up glass, metal, nails and more. As the base is any old bucket, you essentially have an endless tank, depending on how many buckets you have available to you. If you often do work that requires a serious vacuum and needs to be cleaned out rather frequently, then this $115 purchase won’t seem like such a hefty purchase.
