Ryobi EverCharge Cordless Stick Vacuum Review

It’s hard not to recommend the Ryobi ONE+ platform to Pros. That may sound contradictory, but I find it hard to argue with a platform of more than 100 tools. Additionally, most of those tools cost less than $100. I mean, who else makes a cordless inflator for under $40? If you don’t need the highest […]

Ridgid Gen5X Brushless Handheld Vac Review

Ridgid Gen5x Brushless Handheld Vac Review

I’ve resisted going to a cordless handheld vacuum for quite a while now. I just didn’t think a glorified dust buster was the way to go for cleanup. However, better batteries combined with brushless motors have really stepped up the suction power in this class of vacuums. So I now have the Ridgid Gen5x Brushless […]

Milwaukee M18 Compact Vacuum Video Review

Milwaukee M18 Compact Vacuum Video Review

The fight in the cordless compact vacuum class is heating up thanks to better motors and higher capacity motors. The Milwaukee M18 Compact Vacuum (found under model Milwaukee 0882-20) is a bare tool option claiming best in class suction power and offering a solid feature set. With suction power moving beyond the 30 CFM mark, […]

Milwaukee M18 Compact Vacuum Review 0882-20

Some years ago, I taught my youngest son to clean the inside of my truck. I believe he was 5 at the time. I’d pull out the vacuum and he’d go to town. It was a horrendous mess, but he was learning. Back then we used a full-on Ridgid SmartCart Vacuum, and it did a great job. […]

Hoover Air Cordless Lift Vacuum and Hoover FloorMate Review

When we heard that the power of lithium-ion batteries and cordless technology had come to vacuum cleaners, we immediately took a look at the Hoover Air Cordless vacuum. What followed was a full line-up of cordless offerings, including the new Hoover Air Cordless Lift vacuum and the Hoover FloorMate vacuum (a sort of “power mop” if you […]

Milwaukee M12 Vacuum – Compact and Powerful

We just caught wind of the new Milwaukee M12 Vacuum. A compact vacuum that’s designed for job site use—but doubles for a great way to clean your shop or vehicle as well. A high performance motor gives you ample suction for any number of construction materials, like wood chips, joist dust, or even metal shavings. You get up to 29 minutes of […]

Hoover Air Cordless Vacuum

Hoover Air Cordless Vacuum Review

I’ve used cordless vacuums extensively over the past several years for small job site cleanup and even for vacuuming out the truck. What I hadn’t thought of was the practicality of using cordless for a home vacuuming solution. But it certainly makes sense. Dragging a cord anywhere is a pain, let alone in the home. […]

Moneual Rydis Robot Vacuum Cleaner Review MR6550

Some of my favorite tools aren’t in the shed…sometimes that technology makes it into other parts of the home. A great example of this would be the new Moneual Rydis MR6550 Robot Vacuum Cleaner. This low-to-ground robotic vacuum uses brushless motor technology and a lithium-ion power pack to keep its internal vacuum and motors running […]
