Three vacuum cleaners rose to the top of the wall-mounted category in the Reboot My Garage vacuum contest (read part 1 and part 2).

The VacMaster contest first place winner is the best wall-mounted vacuum cleaner for the garage. VacuMaid and Ridgid are in 2nd and 3rd place.

Here are the three wall-mounted garage vac winners on Amazon.

  1. VacMaster VWMB5080101 (formerly VWM510)
  2. VacuMaid GV50PRO
  3. Ridgid VAC5000
I bought the first place winner. Here is the VacMaster unboxing video.

The Best Garage Wall-Mounted Vacuum Cleaner is the VacMaster VWMB508101

The VacMaster VWMB508101 has all eight features I looked for in my next garage vacuum cleaner. But even with buying the separate wheel kit, the price is still really good.

The winning vac is wall-mounted, has a wet-dry function, and a 21 foot hose.
The winning vac is wall-mounted, has a wet-dry function, and a 21 foot hose.

This is the vacuum cleaner with:

  • a wall mount
  • a wet-vac function
  • 21 ft. of hose
  • a hose rack
  • wheels (sold separately)
  • a blower function
  • cord storage
  • positive reviews

This vac also has a remote power switch on the nozzle end, which is incredibly convenient when you’re 21 ft. away from the motor.

You can carry the lightweight hose to your target, and leave the machine on the wall.

Or you can put the vacuum on the floor, and use the wheels to drag it around.

The wheels are a must when using this machine as a wet vac, because water is heavy!

The VWMB508101 has every feature I wanted in a garage wall-mounted vacuum.

The VacMaster VWMB5080101 (VWM510) is winner of multiple garage vacuum cleaner contests. Without a doubt, it’s the best wall-mounted garage vacuum cleaner.

Check it out on Amazon here.
