Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheLoneWolf Ash Vacuum
The vacuum does exactly what it was designed for and does not clog up with ash. It is great for cleaning around the door to the stove. I use a shovel and pail to remove most of the ash but this works great for the residue and keeps the ash from getting all over the house.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LIfesgud Be careful! This product may get clogged quickly.
I purchased this in mind with cleaning out the wood ashes in our fireplace. However every time I inserted the hose into the fireplace it got clogged with smaller pieces of wood that didn't burn all the way down to ash. As a result I spent more time clearing the clogged hose than sucking out the ash. I returned it. This is probably best used for pellet stoves, or a different type of wood that burns all the way down to ash. And the supplier might want to think about increasing the hose diameter. It looked to be less than 1.5 inches but I didn't verify that. A 3" diameter hose would be much greater; if that's possible.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Birdbythelake Replacing ShopVac with this Ash Vac
So far so good. My 7-8 year old Englands Stove Works just blew an auger motor or is simply jamming in the auger shaft. With the lower price of oil these days I use it as backup. Pellet prices going down because of this. Market must be glutted. Great suction and is compact and seems sturdy. A friend in in NYS near Saranac Lake recommended it after I ordered it. He likes it too. I'm in NW Ct. A little light on accessories. Home Depot doesn't stock it so it may take some time to get it. Reminder: Though it says you can vacuum warm ash(like fire places) why find out there were live coals by smelling your filter burning. This Vac beats using a Shop Vac with a Concrete dust filter.

Works well and easy to clean out the ash from the canister. It's small and light. It's not able to suction 2" pieces of charred wood so don't expect it to work like a full size shop vac.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OldSucker This Ash Vac Really Sucks (Really Well)
This vac is ready to go right out of the box; all you have to do is put the swivel wheels on (just push on). The 10-amp motor has nice power, giving strong suction, so you get less ambient dust and ash in the cleaning process. Functional and light weight, it comes with two attachments, one for the floor and a dual crevice-brush tool. Standard-sized attachments from my old canister vac fit this one too. The power switch is an easy toggle, better than the push-button on my shop vac. Fold-down handle balances the load nicely. Built-in sockets for hose extenders let you store all parts on the body itself. The product description online is accurate. You can use this for a shop vac, but I wouldn't use it for wet pickup. It's designed to pick up warm ash, but I don't plan to use it that way. I use it on a cold pellet stove, and I'll use it in the future on a small wood stove, which might have hot spots even after 48 hours cooling down.
The only fault I can find is that it's a bit louder than a house vac. I recommend ear plugs.
The price on this was a bit high; I think it should be in the $50-60 range. It only comes with two attachments.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tallblond007 FANTASTIC SMALL SHOP VAC
I have a pellet stove and love this vac. It this small enough that I can leave it out all the time by the stove to be ready to use. I like the fact that I can take it outside and use it as a blower also. But, the best part is I don't have to buy vacuum cleaner bags. I take the basket outside and wash it out. I love this vac!
