Shop Vac 3942000 Review
If you are looking for a shop vac that will not take up a lot of storage space and gives you less burden of carrying or rolling it around, then you just might like the Shop-Vac 3942000. It will stay mounted on the wall even as you vacuum, it provides ample suction and has a long hose that can reach further than 18 feet radius when connected with extension wands. I find it convenient not to have to carry the shop vac around as I vacuum the car, so having one that hangs on the wall and with a long hose is ideal. Even in the workshop, I find it easy to have a centered cleaning point so I can just pick the hose, turn on the vacuum and get the work done fast and easy If you are like me, then you may want to read this entire Shop Vac 3942000 Review.
Who is it made for?
If you appreciate having a central cleaning point, then this is probably the shop vac for you. Car owners, people working in a workshop and any environment that may need a quick cleanup from time to time without the bother of carrying the entire unit are the most suited users of this 3942000 wall mounted shop vac.
Features and Benefits of Shop Vac 3942000
You will get a wall bracket as one of the accessories and once you have installed this on the designated position on the wall, you will be able to mount the unit on the wall. I find this gives more freedom since the hose is able to reach, for example, any part of the car, and there is less risk of tripping over wires since the cable is not crossing the garage as you move around. This feature should also save space and keep the workshop or garage less cluttered.
A common problem with wet and dry vacuums with long hoses is that the suction power is greatly affected but I believe with a 4.0 peak horsepower motor, the amount of suction provided is quite sufficient to suck up different kind of debris through the length of the hose. Whether you are dealing with wet or dry waste, you should be able to have it cleaned up quickly and satisfactorily. You will probably be amazed by how fast it can dry up a wet workshop floor and eat up a pile of dust in your workshop.
You are not limited to using the Shop Vac on the wall, if you need to clean a different area that the hose cannot reach, you can easily dismount it and there is a carry handle that folds so just unfold the handle and you should be able to carry it around as a portable shop vac. If you were wondering how you will empty it when full, well the portability feature come in handy again since you can easily dismount it from the wall and carry it to the dump site.
All Purpose cleaning
You will have a variety of accessory tools at your disposal which give you versatility in the kind of tasks you can handle. You will find a nozzle with a brush which is good for cleaning pet hair from car seats and carpets, gulper nozzle for sucking up wet messes, a collection filter bag for fine dust, crevice tool to reach tight spaces and the long hose as well as extension wands. You should not worry about clutter since there is a storage bag you can also hang on the wall and keep everything in one place.
Among the accessories, you will have an 18-foot hose and you can add the 3 extension wands which should give you sufficient reach to get to different corners of the workshop or to clean the car without the need to carry the entire unit around. If your workshop is the size of a garage, you probably will have no difficulty cleaning it with the vac mounted on the wall. You can even use it to get spider webs and dust on the wall or the roof.
