This all-purpose vacuum is ideal for cleaning and removing cold ash and coarse dirt from wood burners, fireplaces and barbecues as well as for general vacuum cleaning around the home, garage or workshop. The 12 litre drum is manufactured from heavy gauge steel pressing which is ribbed for strength. Weighing only 4.5kg, a folding carry handle allows for the vacuum to be comfortably carried around even when full of ash, dust, dirt or wood shavings. The 800mm long x 35mm diameter flexible suction hose has an inner metal core coated with plastic on the outer surface. A 230mm long heat resistant aluminium suction tube is then inserted into the end of the hose. The 500 watt 230V motor is operated by a conveniently positioned on/off switch and is supplied with over 5 metres of cable and plug.

Fitted with a Hepa filter this vacuum has an impressive air flow rate of 1.5 cubic metres per minute. In addition to high power suction, the vacuum can also be put into blower mode by inserting the hose into the opening at the head of the drum. The blower function is perfect for cleaning down work benches and for blowing dirt and debris into piles ready for vacuuming. For cleaning fires, stoves, barbecues and general home or workshop cleaning this is an excellent compact vacuum that will prove invaluable. Highly recommended with over 500,000 units sold worldwide.

    Great little vacuum. Use mine on our log burner and it sucks up all the ash, hot and cold, and any larger lumps. This is my man-vacuum that I can get as dirty as I want!

    Good points: very easy to carry and store; inexpensive. Bad point: 500w motor is not powerful enough for anything except the easiest of jobs.

    I use mine for cleaning the dogs basket of hairs, bits of biscuits and whatever he leaves lying around. I used to use my Dyson to do this but then there would always be a doggy smell every time I started vacuuming the carpets. Great as a second vacuum for messy cleaning!

    We have two Clearview log burners and we use this vacuum every other day for cleaning the grate. Some time the ash is still red hot but this has not been a problem as the pipe is metal lined and the drum is all metal so it cant cause any damage. Fantastic value.

    It does what it says. Filters fine ash. Trouble is it all sticks to the filter and does not drop into the bin. Before the job is finished the suction begins to fail and the motor to heat up.

    Handy, fairly small and portable, found the short hose and Lack of tools a bit of a limitation especially for car cleaning where the hose end will not go in between seats etc and the metal hose end is not advised on plastic surfaces. Hose is short and stiff which means bending down a lot at floor level. OK for a quick clean up in the shed though for which I suspect it was probably designed but limited for other purposes. Needs a brush on the sharp end for those jobs. Not used the blow mode yet but seems to emit warm air. Maybe a hair dryer for the dog!

    Brilliant for cleaning out my tractor cab. Its light enough to carry in on hand and small enough to access where I need. Great buy.

    Don't know how they can make it for this money. Good power, long cable, solid drum - cant go wrong.

    Bought this cleaner purely for cleaning our fires. Saves getting soot, dirt and ash on our house vacuum cleaner. Works well.

    Great for blowing dust and shavings off my workbench and then vacuuming up afterwards. Very well made with a lot of suction power.

    I have two of these vacuums. One is dedicated for use with out Clearview stove and the other is used for cleaning the car. My wife doesn't like me using her Dyson! I can fully recommend this vacuum.

    Excellent value for money. Perfect for blowing the shavings and dust off my Sjoberg workbench and then vacuuming off the floor. Very well made and very robust.

    Nice and compact and easy to carry. Powerful motor. Build quality is good. Overall a very well priced small vacuum that is perfect for my workshop and save having to get out my large, yet cumbersome Dewalt extractor.
