Hoover GUV L2310

Keep Your Garage Clean

If you're the kind of person who doesn't shy away from working with your hands and your garage isn't just a place where you put your car but an actual workshop where you build and fix a lot of stuff, you might want to give the Hoover GUV L2310 a try. Though a powerful and capable device in and of itself, the first thing we would like to mention about this product is all of the attachments that come with it. In addition to the vacuum itself, you will receive 2 extension wands, 2 crevice tools, 1 floor nozzle, 1 upholstery nozzle, and 1 dusting brush. You'll also get a base storage rack and a tool storage pouch, so you won't have to crack your brain wondering where to put all of these attachments. With their help, you will be able to handle just about any task around the garage, from sprucing up the upholstery and cleaning your workbench to sweeping the floor of the garage clean.

Having said that, it's not just the attachments that make this garage vacuum such an attractive choice for handymen. Using the 10-amp, 120-volt powerful motor, the model provides you with enough suction power to vacuum just about anything from nails and screws on the floor to mulch and other debris on the bed of your truck. But despite the model's power, it doesn't produce a whole lot of noise, so you will be able to do your job without disturbing your family or your neighbors.

To rephrase our earlier point, the Hoover GUV L2310 is a garage utility vacuum that will suit those individuals who love spending time in their garage as it doubles as a workshop. Building and fixing a number of different items leaves behind a lot of dirt but, with this product, you'll be able to vacuum it all.

Vacmaster VQ607SFD

Around the House

If you need a garage vacuum cleaner, your best bet is usually a wall-mounted model. The problem is, a vacuum like that can seldom be used anywhere else and you cannot always afford to invest in two or more vacuums. Which is why the Vacmaster VQ607SFD might be your best if you need a flexible cleaner. Since the whole thing adds up to precisely 14.8 x 13.2 x 20.5 inches in overall dimensions and 16 pounds in weight, you'll be able to easily move this portable vacuum around the house. It doesn't look too bad either as the stainless steel tank gives this product a much more professional and sleek look. Admittedly, it isn't the most important aspect of any garage vacuum system, but an attractive design is never really a bad thing. Plus, the design is also weather-resistant, so you can always take it outside whenever needed. And wrapping up its design elements, we would be remiss not to mention the handle on top that will help you carry it around.

Of course, for a vacuum cleaner to deserve the title of a versatile model, two conditions have to be met. First, it should include a number of attachments and extra accessories. In this case, it is a reusable foam sleeve, multi-surface floor nozzle, 2-in-1 utility nozzle, crevice tool, round dust brush, and 2 extension wands. Among other things, the multi-surface floor nozzle is particularly important as, just as the name suggests, it will allow you to work with any surface, adding extra points in versatility. The second condition is power and the capacity of the dirt tank and this model has that covered as well. The 7-amp motor offers enough suction power to handle most tasks and the 6-gallon tank will allow you to store a lot of dirt in that tank, so you'll be able to spend less time emptying it up.

To sum it up, the Vacmaster VQ607SFD is the garage utility vacuum you need if you would like to keep your garage clean but you also need a vacuum cleaner that will prove its worth in other areas, capable of handling different applications around the house. Get this product and you won't need another vacuum cleaner.

Stanley 4.5 Gallon, 4 Horsepower

Vacuum Everywhere

Wall-mounted vacuum cleaners aren't known for their versatility but we cannot say the same about this product from Stanley. For instance, as you could've guessed, this is a wall-mounted model. But dissimilar to most wall-mounted models, this vacuum cleaner was constructed in a way that makes it really easy to remove from the wall bracket. Of course, that means that emptying up the tank will be a lot easier as well. But that also means that you can use this device as a portable vacuum. To help you with that, the people behind this product have installed a convenient handle on top of the unit, so you'll be able to carry it around with enough ease and comfort. Featuring 12.8 x 23.5 x 12.2 inches in overall dimensions and 16 pounds in weight, the model is smaller than your typical garage vacuum and a lot lighter.

Of course, if you do not care about any of that and you simply need a garage cleaner, this appliance is no slouch either. The motor features 4 units of horsepower and the dirt tank boasts a considerable capacity of 4.5 gallons. Plus, there's a convenient blower port than instantly converts this model from a vacuum cleaner to a blower. About the only gripe we have with this vacuum is the 20-inch hose that might prove to be a bit short for people looking to clean up a sizable garage.

Other than that, the model from Stanley is easily one of the most versatile and flexible garage vacuums out there. Using this appliance, you will be able to keep clean not just your garage or a workshop but any other room in your house.

What Is a Garage Vacuum?

On the surface, there isn't that much of a difference between a regular vacuum cleaner and a garage one. They both just suck in air, right? Well, while that is certainly true, there's actually quite a lot that differentiates the latter from the former. The first obvious dissimilarity is that the majority of garage vacuums are usually mounted to the wall. And because, this way, you get to save quite a lot of space, the manufacturers have the freedom to pack these vacuums with much more impressive hardware. Which is why your average wall-mounted model features more powerful suction capabilities, a longer hose, quieter operation, and a number of additional attachments that seldom or never accompany regular vacuums. Because of the more impressive hardware, wall-mounted vacuum cleaners are generally used for some of the more heavy-duty purposes. They're far better than standard vacuum cleaners when it comes to cleaning the interior of your car. If you're the kind of person who has somewhat of a workshop going on in your garage, these kinds of vacuums are perfect for cleaning up sawdust and debris after working with all kinds of messy materials.

That being said, if you live in an apartment or if you're simply not interested in keeping your garage as clean as possible, these vacuums won't do you much good. But you could certainly find some use for robot vacuum cleaners and handheld vacuums.
