I love my new shop vac! I don't care if I am a dork. With three cats in my part of the house keeping ahead of all the hair has become an issue. First I purchased a sharp sweeper. It doesn't get the corners or baseboards very good. So then I invested in a sharp mini vacuum, but that required too much work on my knees and with my bad back I neglected using it. Recently I saw an add for a shop vacuum on sale and ordered it. And I love it.
Just used it for the first time this morning and got all the corners and baseboards done. Plus, the suction is so great that every lost cat ball under the bed was soon on the tip of the wand. For a clean freak it made a usually long and painful job short and sweet.
