I am in need of a small hoover to clean out cabs etc - perhaps 15l capacity or so.
The one that has just died had a heavy felt filter over the bucket, that just needed banging against a post to clean - I don’t want one with disposable bags or expensive filters.
Any suggestions please?
(The old machine came from a sale years ago and has no makers name on it, so I can’t directly replace it)

Sounds like a numatic?

I got the blue one bagless wet and dry, in practice its poor at dry dust as it blocks the filter really quickly and stops sucking.
Ended up converting it to a bagged one and now it's great.
Twin motor so decent suck. Hoover the workshop floor with it sometimes just as easy as sweeping😂

We have two of them in workshop, a blue one and older yellow model. They suck up everything from baler grass to lathe and drills swarf etc. Sometimes the swarf gets stuck in the pipe so needs a broom handle through to clear it and grinder dust from time to time settled in the bottom and sets rock hard!! Fantastic machined

Ah i like mine, but as it was you couldnt suck up more than a litre paint tins worth of dust till the filter blocked.

Not sure if i bought this one or the CVD570? they all look much the same IMO https://www.averncleaningsupplies.com/WVD570-Industrial-Wet-Dry-Vacuum-Cleaner-Numatic. If i had bought the standard WVD570 and not the dash 2 then i would have been fine as standard one takes bags for dry stuff.


To make my WVD570-2 take bags i had to buy a new outlet connection that would take a bag, get rid of the internal ball valve and filter assembly and then buy the dust filter as used on the red models, was an expensive hoover by the end of it!

Sorry no name but the guy that services the boiler has a Hoover that keeps the filter clean as it goes. Every 20-30 seconds it gives 3 bangs which knocks all the hovered up dust off the filter so always sucking at full power. Around Henry size and 110v industrial spec. has to deal with a lot of soot and crud every day in and out of the van it just keeps going.
They might be common enough but I've never seen them before

I have a 20l Nilfisk wet and dry jobbie, can go with or without a bag and has a button on the front that reverses the flow through the filter(washable) to knock the dust out when the light comes on. It's also got a plug socket on the front to plug your power tools into and only comes on when you use the tool. It works with the 110v transformer plugged in so you're not tied to using 240v power tools.
Less than £100 of Amazon, might have to get another one as the other half won't let it leave the house and has chucked her Dyson in the shed!
