The Powersmith PAVC101 Ash Vacuum is specifically designed to clean warm and cool ash out of fireplaces, wood stoves, pellet stoves and barbecue grills, something that household vacuum cleaners and regular utility vacs cannot do. The secret is the two-layer filter. The outer layer is heat resistant, allowing the machine to pick up warm ash up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The inner layer is designed to trap the finest dust and ash. The metal hose and canister on the Powersmith ash vacuum make the whole machine heat-resistant. And just in case, the motor has an auto-shutoff feature which turns off the machine if heat inside the canister ever reaches dangerous levels.
A powerful 10-Amp motor is another reason why this ash vacuum doesn’t clog like the competition. But it runs at a quiet noise level of only 79 decibels. The 5.2 gallon canister holds up to 3 gallons of ashes. An ash level indicator shows how full the canister is at any time. The Powersmith ash vacuum comes equipped with extension wands and a floor and carpet nozzle so it can be used as a regular utility vac. Casters and a 16 ft. extension cord give you lots of mobility.And if you switch the hose from the intake PORT to the exhaust outlet, this vacuum turns into a blower.Three tools in one: an ash vacuum, a utility vac, and a blower.
