    Re: Best vacuum for under $40?

    Wal Mart has a Shop Vac for 30 bucks that is 2.5HP and heck I dont know maybe 2 gallons or something. Anyways, I bought it to keep in the boathouse at my family's lakehouse and ended up liking it so much I brought it home. I use it pretty often on my own vehicle and also when I go camping etc. I have used it on quite a few details as well with no problems. It's not a workhorse, but for the size and price of it. It's hard to beat.

    You can try looking on Craigslist, I just got a used RIDGID WD4522 for $40 in great condition with all the attachments and manual, I definetly got lucky. some pawn shops carry alot of tools too but Craigslist is usually where I look first.

    Ah I just checked CL.

    Someone is selling the Rigid 5HP (listed May 6th) for $50. Hopefully they still have it and I can grab it for $40 :P.

    Maybe look online for a reconditioned unit.

    I just bought this Shop Vac at Lowes for 30 bucks. It's 2.5 HP, which is awesome for a Shop Vac this small

    The only thing is, it doesn't hold a ton of stuff before emptying. I'm very pleased with it. It's powerful enough to lift the carpet up off the floor, and ,sucks liquids out of carpets well. Also , it hangs up out of the way on your wall, as space is important to me.

    4 Gallon Wet / Dry Vac - RIDGID Professional Tools

    He says he has this one brand new, it doesn't have the muffler.

    Is it needed or? I assume it silences that vacuum.

    It's an accessorie so I am guessing It's something optional, If it's already opened you should plug it in and see how it works when you go buy it. The one I bought was on CL for 3 weeks so I offered $40 instead of $50

    He's firm on $40.

    He says it's brand new in the box (but where's the muffler???).

    I'm trying to bring him down to $35 since I'll be driving to him ($5 covers gas both ways lol).

    Hopefully he agrees for once.

    This is the vacuum I bought( I know it is over $40 but though it was worth it) .It was on sale for $75. I love it , lots of power. wireless remote for turning of and on and then you can plug the hose onto the exhaust side for a blower. Plus when you are done with it you can hang it on your garage wall, trailer or van.
