What is the advantage of a 3 stage wet/dry vac over a single stage or double stage one?

I need a good vac to suck up a lot of sand from an old foundry. The filter in the one I'm using now keeps getting plugged with sandy dust.
Asked by: Anonymous
The number of stages refers to the number fans inside of the motor. A three stage motor incorporates three fans, giving it high suction power and relatively low air flow. This type of motor is ideally suited for picking up wet or liquid materials. For your application, we recommend using the 8938-20 two stage 9.0 Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum Cleaner.

15-Gal. 3-Stage Wet/Dry Vac Cleaner is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It sucks It sucks very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best vacuum by far I bought my Milwaukee 3 stage vacuum in 1990 and it is still going strong. As shop vacuums go, it is relatively quite and very powerful. I have had other brand shop vacuums and none of them can be compared to the quality of the Milwaukee. If I needed another heavy duty vacuum, I would not hesitate to buy another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best vac ever! This is by far the best vac I have ever owned. I have owned it for 3 years now, I've used it on construction jobs as well as around the house and it has never given me any problems. I have owned numerous other shop vac's and decided that I would pay the price for this one. Well worth the investment, still going strong. Others would have crashed and burned, not this one. The last vac you will ever need!
