I'm looking for something inexpensive that I can walk around with, 2-2.5 gal max, mainly to vacuum cars, and pick up occasional mess after sawing lumber.

This ArmorAll AA255 (made by Cleva) seems highly rated. Anyone have one of these? Any comments or alternative suggestions?

Get a carpet chicken. Its 105lbs,black and has four legs and in the k9 jargon of breed is described as a Doberman. Food on a floor here has a life span measured in nanoseconds. He doesnt need electricity which makes him ecologically friendly.

Well it has that downside of leaving the backyard a manure minefield, but 4 july is here soon so I can rid myself of it somehow. Keeps the gf employed as she is the pooper scooper and puts it in a compost or something.

I have one and it's sucks, not literally. It will do sawdust okay but really doesn't have the suction to suck much of anything embedded in my vehicles carpet.

I have a Stanley 2.5 Gal., 3hp that picks up everything in my cars as well as around the garage and workshop. Menard's puts them on sale >$25 frequently.

Hmmm. Mine is pretty old now (>10 years) and does fine with sand and soil. I've never had an issue fortunately, but I also don't know if they've changed over the years for the worst.

This is sort of what mine looks like, though it isn't called a hang up model.

I have a 1 1/2 gal. Dewalt. Works great, 110v or uses your cordless drill battery if it is the same. I can put a battery in it and run through the whole house in under 10 minutes, and tell my wife I vacuumed the house.

I have a Dewalt corded/cordless vacuum. I highly recommend it especially if you have other dewalt coldless tools.

I have this one, but I see they have a newer one.

This is the one I have had for about 5 years and it gets used all the time! It is a little loud but it works great!

I have one of these,
http://www.amazon.com/Black-Decker-FHV1200-Cordless-Ultra-Compact/dp/B002FQJW4W/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1395674487&sr=8-3&keywords=Black+%26+decker+cordless+vac

I know its small but just the nuts for sweeping out the cars and no cord to work around with.
