    OK for small work
    Comments about Product:
    I have had mine for five years. I use it only after I have shoveled out all the ash that I can from my fireplace. Yes it clogs immediately, but suction remains strong enough (watch the overheating) to do 5 or 6 cleanings before taking the filter off and banging off all the ash. The design is bad. When you suck in fine ash, it clogs immediately on the filter and doesn't drop off into the container.

    Don't buy
    Comments about Product:
    Clogs very easily. Need to clean filter at least two times before finishing a small to moderate amount of ashes. Probably needs a paper pre-filter like ShopVac. Can not find additional or replacement filters on Plow & Hearth web site. Would not recommend this product. Not worth the money.

    Clogs very fast
    Comments about Product:
    I received this vacuum for a Christmas present and was very excited to use it to clean our woodburning fireplace insert. It started strong, but quickly (less than 30 seconds) clogged. The ash I was vacuuming completely clogged the filter and stopped sucking extremely fast for a vacuum designed for ash. It is designed to hold 4 gallons. I was lucky if I got 1/2 gallon of ash before all suction was lost. I had to take the filter apart outside and clean it to restore suction. This would make a great vacuum to keep close to the fireplace to vacuum up debris and SMALL amounts of ash that fall on the hearth, rug, etc.. It is NOT a vacuum that should be sold as a fireplace cleaning vacuum. It just clogs way too quickly. It's faster and easier to use a metal scoop to clean the fireplace than this vacuum. Disappointed, but will still keep it to use outside of the fireplace.

    suction gone after first use
    Comments about Product:
    The first time I used the vac it was great. BUT after that, the filter clogs and you lose suction. I surmise, that you must buy filters and change them after each use.

    Poor design
    Comments about Product:
    Works if there are only ashes, but those of us who have wood fireplaces know that all wood doesn't burn completely so if there are small pieces of charred wood, it plugs up. The hose is too small. The filter inside clogs quickly too. I only used the vacuum one time and it worked good. But, the second time it plugged up, overheated and quit.

    For ashes only, not for chuncks/etc.
    Comments about Product:
    We found that the pre-filter clogs too easily and you lose suction. You can't pick up anything else but ashes - meaning no chuncks, so what's the point? You still have to do the main work with other tools - so to me it's a waste of time -- a gadget that doesn't really meet my needs. But my husband likes it to get nooks and crannies, such as the runner for the protective netting of the stove, and I guess it will be good for the final cleaning after the season.
