The VacMaster VWM510 is hands down the best vacuum cleaner for the garage. Of the eight features I want in a garage vacuum, the VWM510 has all of them.
My R2D2 Shop-Vac likes to trip me up. I’m tired of it. I’m going to
throw give it away. I need a new vacuum for the garage.
After finding a giant pile of “garage vacuum” failures, I landed on the VacMaster brand. Here I found a whole bunch of candidates to replace R2D2, so I decided to analyze them all.
I detailed the analysis in full here: The Best VacMaster Cleaner for Your Garage. Check it out if you want to see the nitty gritty of every step in the analysis.
The eight features I want in my next garage vacuum cleaner are:
- a blower
- cord storage
- a variable hose length
- a hose rack
- a wall mount
- a wet vac
- a high Amazon rating
The VacMaster VWM510 has all of these except wheels. But I can buy the wheels separately and still get out for a crazy good price.
Before I found the VWM510, I had taken deep scans of a Stanley, a GarageVac, a Rigdid, a Shop-Vac, a Bissell, a Vacumaid and a Hoover. None of them made the cut. So my affection for the VacMaster VWM510 isn’t springing from thin air.
I also compared it to nine other VacMaster models! The VWM510 beat the pants off of 16 other vacuum cleaners. It shot to the top of the list.
Why I Like the VWM510
The VWM510 is a decent size without being too big. It has two hoses you can use separately or together for a long range of 21 ft. of hose. The machine sits in the wall mount or you can carry it on its rigid top-handle. The VWM510’s Amazon reviews are the highest of all 16 vacuum cleaners I analyzed. 91% of the 372 reviews give it 4 or 5 stars. It’s got a place to put the hose, a place to put the cord, and places to put the accessories.
I’m definitely buying the wheels because I do wet vacuuming and water is heavy.
This little monster is so cost-effective that I can buy the vacuum and the wheels combined and still spend less than I did on the Shop-Vac I’m
throwing giving away. The VacMaster VWM510 is definitely the garage vacuum cleaner to buy.
