| The problem with it is cleaning it. It seems that after a month
| or so, I actually have to clean the thing. Here is what I do:
| I wheel the vac out to the driveway, then pull up the motor
| housing (with filter) and start pounding on it with my
| dust brush - the fine powder drops into the cannister. I
| continue rotating/tapping - then brushing between the
| pleats until I am satisfied. It usually works out fine.
Easier way: I dump the canister contents into a trash can, then set
the inverted top on the canister and hit it with the air hose. Cleans
out the pleats completely and the ShopVac is ready to use again in
less than five minutes total.
I picked up an 18" wand that keeps me out of the dust and makes the
job go faster. It's worth every penny of the $3 or so I paid for it.
