Powerful ash vacuum worth the price
Comments about Product: This ash vacuum is powerful, sucking up even small chunks of partially burned wood, and is capable of vacuuming ash debris still warm from the fire. The bent nozzle that comes with the vacuum is perfectly adequate for cleaning my fireplace insert. I have not yet had to empty it, so don't know yet whether that is easy or not. Also, I don't know yet how long the 2 filters last.
My only 2 complaints are that the electrical cord is not long enough, and I need an additional extension cord in order to reach the fireplace from the nearest outlet(older house with code allowing outlets to be fewer and more widely spaced than newer codes). The second complaint is that the assembly instructions could use some step-by-step pictures. Once I figured out what the text was saying, the lone picture made sense, but it took me longer to install the 2 filters and clamps than I expected because I wasn't positive about the instructions.

Warm Ash Vac
Comments about Product: Bear in mind that this is an ASH vac. It is not designed to pick up debris. I have used this vac for the past four years for coal ash. It is perfect to get to all the nooks and crannies in the clean-out doors of my stove. Prior to that I was using a shop vac which resulted in the ash getting spewed into the room from the motor and onto everything else.The double-filter in the Ash-vac eliminates this problem. Yes its loud but so is most vacuum cleaners. It is constructed very well and yes it is made in the USA.
Comments about Product: I use it to cleanout pellet stove. Have fine ash, it picks it up easy, and I can leave it right on the hearth area.

DOES THE JOB
Comments about Product: I read the reviews before I purchased the vac and was wary to order after reading such mixed reviews.
We have a free standing wood burning stove that is our primary heat source. We were looking for something that could handle the warm to hot ashes from the clean out drawer while the stove was still burning, although not a roaring fire. I took a chance after speaking with the P&H rep. The pros are: as a female and beginner environmentalist, I could handle the clean out task. minimal debri in the air of the house and no fears of starting a fire as with the wet/dry vac I had been using previously. It does suck up the ash and smaller clinkers that fall through as long as your nozzle is at the bottom of the pile of ash, going slower while moving the nozzle around the drawer and if starts to clog with excess ash, placing the nozzle against the inside to cause greater suction, will typically clear it up. Only once during this past winter did I get it clogged with a large clinker from the inside of the firebox; the hose was quite difficult to clear and warranted dismanteling everything to remove (my husband's job). It is rather awkward to carry as I am short and the pail can be heavy after one clean out. A wheel base as an option, may be one suggestion. The hose is somewhat rigid and at times flaps around or hits objects when transporting until I wound through the handle twice when carrying the unit. The motor is extremely loud and warrants ear protection definitely, which is its biggest drawback.
I am so glad I found something that was fire- safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly to the indoor air quality. Thanks to the P&H rep who tipped the scale to try this by saying that I would not be out of pocket to return it if it did not work.
Great vacum - great product
Comments about Product: This is a great product and works well for my pellet stove. It really makes the cleaning much easier and I'm able to get the nooks and crannies with the extra attachment I purchased also. I especially love the little hose with the rubber end. Ideal for the pellet stove chamber tubes on the top. For those people that said it got clogged - DONT SUCK UP PIECES LARGER THAN THE OPENING OR LARGE ENOUGH THAT MIGHT CLOG IT - USE SOME COMMON SENSE PEOPLE - You cant expect a product to work correctly if you don't use it correctly. Do you vacuum your socks up your house vacuum and expect it not be clogged? If there are large chunks break them up first or don't vacuum them up. When used correctly its a solid product and makes my chore a lot easier and faster. Also really easier to empty and contains the mess. My folks got one after seeing mine. Thanks for solid product P and H!
Should have bought it long ago
Comments about Product: Home use
Comments about Product: I would not recommend this vacuum to my worst enemy. The hose is extremely under-sized and clogs very easily. It is difficult to unclog due to the stiffness of the hose. The filter has to be cleaned everytime it is used. For the price of it I could have purchase 5 shop vacs.
I love the Warm Ash Vac!
Comments about Product: This really is a wonderful product. Those who do
give it a 5-star rating simply are not using it
correctly as per instructions. I bought it for a
gift, but I live with the person I bought it for,
so I get to see how well it works!
