Product Overview

  • Powerful 10 amp motor
  • Cleans warm and cool ash
  • Canister holds 3 Gal. of ashes
The PowerSmith PAVC101 Ash Vacuum is specifically designed to clean warm and cool ash out of fireplaces, wood stoves, pellet stoves and barbecue grills, something that household vacuum cleaners and regular utility vacs cannot do. The secret is the two-layer filter. The outer layer is heat resistant, allowing the machine to pick up warm ash up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The inner layer is designed to trap the finest dust and ash. The metal hose and canister on the PowerSmith ash vacuum make the whole machine heat-resistant. And just in case, the motor has an auto-shutoff feature which turns off the machine if heat inside the canister ever reaches dangerous levels. A powerful 10 Amp motor is another reason why this ash vacuum doesn’t clog like the competition. But it runs at a quiet noise level of only 79 dB. The 5.2 Gal. canister holds up to 3 Gal. of ashes. An ash level indicator shows how full the canister is at any time. The PowerSmith ash vacuum comes equipped with extension wands and a floor and carpet nozzle so it can be used as a regular utility vac. Casters and a 16 ft. extension cord give you lots of mobility. And if you switch the hose from the intake PORT to the exhaust outlet, this vacuum turns into a blower. Three tools in one: an ash vacuum, a utility vac and a blower.
  • Quiet and powerful 10 Amp motor
  • Specifically designed to clean warm and cool ash out of fireplaces, wood stoves, pellet stoves, and barbecue grills
  • Washable and replaceable heat-resistant filter system filters out fine dust and ash
  • Heat resistant metal hose and metal canister
  • Canister holds up to 3 Gal. of ashes
  • Additional accessories, casters and a 16 foot cord allow use as a regular shop vac
  • Connecting the hose to air outlet allows use as a blower
  • Convenient onboard accessory storage and top carrying handle
  • Includes metal hose, metal nozzle, wheeled base, 2 straight extension wands, brush nozzle, turbo nozzle, and 1 filter
  • ETL listed
  • 2 year limited warranty

Can you vacuum up hot burning embers?

We use a wood-burning fireplace to keep warm, so we have to remove the ash build up pretty frequently; can we suck up hot coals/embers with this thing? Thanks
Asked by: Damon
The PowerSmith Ash Vacuum is designed to vacuum warm ash, but should not be used to vacuum red or "glowing" embers, or any material that still shows signs of burning. Please refer to the owner's manual for more details.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We use this for ash removal in waste oil heaters.... We use this for ash removal in waste oil heaters. Also for concrete dust removal when drilling floors to anchor vehicle lifts. We also purchased a bin and lid to carry outside on our trucks during winter in Oregon. Carrying the vacuum in the bin is a great way to keep the dust from getting everywhere. Be fast with your usage or the vacuum will lock out due to motor overheat protection. So if you need to use it for an extended length of time best to shut it down in between or the cooling period will extend your time even further. I purchased the long hose and we use that for ash. the short hose for concrete. Also purchased an extra filter. Great Vacuum!

It shows full while sucking up the ashes, however, the cannister is not full. The vacuum still has plenty of suction power even I cleaned our pellet stove with it 4 times before emptying the vacuum. I recommend this to everyone.

The 4' hose is a bit short so I bought the 10' hose and leave the vacuum outside a nearby window. I did not see dust coming from the unit and it could be used indoors, but I prefer to leave it outside. It runs very quiet compared to most shop vacs and has a secondary motor/exhaust filter above the ash filter. This motor/exhaust filter should stay clean for a long time if your main filter is working good. Suction remained good until I was done. My stove opening is small and the metal fitting that the tools attach to, is too long to get inside stove real well. I bought a few feet of cheap flex hose that fits vacuum and attachments. (see pics) Toilet paper ignites at about 450 degrees, so people who have caught their filter on fire, or cause vacuum to shut down from overheating, have a problem with common sense. Use on "cool or warm" stove, empty often, keep filters clean and this unit should last a long time.

Used this to thoroughly clean our wood stove top to bottom and on the inside. I purchased the extra attachment bag which came in very handy for small, hard to reach places. This exhaust from this vacuum was clean and really made the job 1000 times easier for me. Honestly, I wish all products I purchase worked as well as this one.

I didn’t give it a 5 because it doesn’t seem to hold 3 gallons of pickup before the red light indicator comes on and the manufacturer could consider making a longer hose for general clean up.

Works great but you need to get the bigger pieces of coal sifted out of your ash pile first or else the nozzle will clog up. Get an Embersieve and use it before vacuuming and it will be a breeze to clean up your ashes.
