Rated 1 out of 5 by It looked great til i used it :( it keeps clogging the filter and its so loud! it doesn't work at all not once did it work, i had to return it quick, wondering if company actually tested this on real ashes? December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by this compact vacuum really sucks I was unsure when I saw this vacuum. It's the size of a 3 gallon metal pail in rough black texture. The 3 ft hose is metal reinforced thick plastic with a metal wand. Wow, when I turned it on the 6.2 amp motor went into high rpm suck mode. I vacuumed three rooms of corners and behind shelves at my office where sand and dead critters lay for along time. It sucks up gravel and rocks the size of golf balls and clunks into the metal can like an old slot machine win. This unit works fine on a stove and is easy to tote around by its bucket like bale handle. The automotive type heavy duty paper filter came with a cloth cover bag to help filter fine particles and help element last longer. Cute but "Bad Ash" name may offend a few whimps. April 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Little Unit! Decided to try this over using my garage vacuum. VAST improvement. Small compact unit, easy to handle, which really sucks up all the ashes, plus there is no 'dust' overflow in room thanks to the dual filter (paper cartridge and cloth bag). Not terribly loud either, which is a real plus in the house. Not great at sucking up small 'chunks' of unburned wood, but it IS for ASHES, & does a great job of pulling them in. Fireplace & grill wasn't clean enough to eat off of by any means; but it is totally ash free, & that was the objective. My wife can even use this unit; it is that light. Was missing a clamp or hook for the hose; I added one myself to the side (cost me a whole $.75; use a rubber washer inside and outside under the bolt & to stop air loss to hose). Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by REALLY Cleans those BAD ASHES from fireplace This is a great little machine. It will really clean your fireplace quickly and makes the job easy. It is a bit noisy while running, but it does a great job. It is lightweight, so easy to carry up and down stairs (we have fireplace in the basement family room as well as the living room), just a bit heavier with the ashes inside it. The filter keeps the outlet air clean and no dust comes into the room while you are using this. One caution, remember to take it outside - not just into the garage - when emptying it. The only 'down side' of it is, now that we got it my wife loves to burn the fireplace more often, then she expects me to clean it immediately the next morning. She wants it kept 'sidewalk clean' all the time. August 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really is a useful tool! This is a powerful vacuum with some amazing options such as a non staining metal crevasse tool and a metal reinforced hose. The filter keeps the ash from getting into the air, inside your home or outside on the patio. All are positive features needed to vacuum your fireplace or outdoor fire pit or kiva. When it comes to your fire pit you’ll need a long extension cord in some cases. Mine is nowhere near an outlet (poor forethought on my part and extremely hard to sweep out). This product even comes with an attached ‘THUMPER’ feature to shake the ash to the bottom before you empty it. April 24, 2013
