Will this suck up large quantities of dog hair?

My Dyson Animal died a painful death shortly after i got a St. Bernard. Even with serous brushing 2-3 times/week, she still leaves clumps of hair everywhere. I don't want to sacrifice another vacuum, but having to rake my carpet before vacuuming is getting old.
Asked by: PetMommy
Depending on the size of the critter, you might get the whole dog.

5 Gal. 1.75-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 749.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value for a Budget Vac This is a very good alternative to traditional wet vacs. Its very portable and you can use it anywhere you have a 5 gallon bucket that will fit. The suction is more than enough for small jobs, car interors and truck beds. Water suction is good but not great. It will do the job but its not that fast. But its more than you can expect at this price. The motor will start to turn off when the bucket has about 3.5 gallons of liquid. At four feet, the hose is too short and extension hoses cost more than the buckethead. There are no other accessories. If you want to use the handle on your bucket then you have to align the motor clips to where the handles connect to your bucket. It can be a bit of a pain if you have to frequently empty the canister and I wonder how long the clips will last. It also makes it kind of awkward to move around. If you only need a wet / dry vac a few times a year then this could be a great choice. One thing to note - this only has a 90 day warranty.

So, there I was, planning on a relaxing evening when I look outside and see glass everywhere. A giant windstorm had flipped my glass table, leaving shards all over the place. I immediately sat on the couch. Yeah, I don't know how to fix this. I got on the Google, and low and behold, someone mentioned a shop vac. Well, hey, I have a Bucket Head! Maybe that will work. I'd only used it for water when my dishwasher decided to go belly up, but let's give it a try. I pour myself some wine into a sippy cup (let's not tempt fate with glass twice in one day!) and head out to vacuum my lawn and patio. It was supposed to rain in a few hours, so I didn't have time to work on a better solution. Eureka, this little guy was great! He and I spent some quality time together, and solved the problem. For the price, I feel that if you use it once, it pays for itself. Using it twice, then, is basically like winning the lottery. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for $22 The simple rule here is know what you're buying. There are some shop vacs that go for upwards of $200. You're paying $22, plus $2.50 for a bucket if you don't have one. There are a few complaints in the reviews that it's missing feature X or Y. However, it's a very functional shop vac (and bucket, and blower) for less than $25. It's been great during our bathroom remodel, sucking up dust and small pieces/chips of tile, bits of the old laminate floor, and water. There are plenty of add-on parts if you want them, but at this price, if you just need the extras, you may just want to get one of the $50+ units. This has been a great replacement for our old, nearly non-functional shop vac. Since it's modular, it's also easy to bring just the vacuum head to my brother-in-law's house and attach it to his bucket. And best of all, at this price, it's easily replaceable, so we aren't worried about a little bit of abuse.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Died after 1 - 2 years, short stiff crappy hose Attractive, Sleek profile, and initially work well for one to two years, despite having a very short stiff cheap hose that limited utility and required me to buy inexpensive Rockler extension hose to allow it to reach my sliding compound miter saw. It suddenly died tonight and I was disappointed that there are no troubleshooting tips in the manual nor any solutions easily found online. I have another one that I thought I bought at Home Depot but maybe I got somewhere else called bucket Max which is 6.5 amps and has worked great for a number of years and has a much better hose, longer and more flexible.

Wet Vacs get disgusting really quickly - so I hate spending money. It has the huge advantage of being able to haul out large quantities of water without hauling a heavy vacuum. You don't need to haul the actual vacuum to dispose of the waste water. You can add buckets forever while the vacuum keeps working. This is especially handy when time is critical. Example: I had to clean 30gal of garbage disposal water that leaked into my crawl. 1) Fill bucket #1. 2) Seal bucket. Add bucket #2. 3) Repeat while another person carries the buckets out to dispose. This is a huge advantage for speed. Otherwise, I'd have to haul the entire wet vac to dispose of the waste water. You can keep one person working while the other one carts off the waste.

The hose is really short and the whole thing is top heavy, meaning that any tug will send it toppling over. Also, the paper filter tends to leak a bit of dust. The lack of proper accessories is a major bummer too. It can handle sawdust and the like fairly well, but car detailing will be tricky without any accessories. For the price, it's okay. If you plan to do woodworking, I would recommend the RIDGID 6 Gallon HD06001 vacuum. If you have an emergency flood in the middle of the night, this will do the job.

Not impressed with the quality at all, unfortunately the plastic used for the snap on handles is very thin, weak and flimsy. It broke with the first use, had to return for a replacement. If this wasn't going to be a very occasional emergency use only vacuum, I wouldn't have stayed with it. It will be used for water pickup in a condo laundry room when leaks occur, so using a 5 gallon bucket makes it easy to empty. Suction is okay, but not great. I would recommend looking elsewhere for a daily user.

Small vacuum which I place on top of a Home Depot orange bucket. Very handy. I use it to vacuum the wood pellets in my Trager grill. Goes right into the bucket which I use to store the pellets. Allows me to switch out the different wood pellets and keep them handy. Very good price. I wish the cord was a little longer. Also the hose could be more flexible and longer. Does what I want it to do. It has met my expectations.
