    I’ve been using an old canister vac to clean my truck and it’s served me well over the years. It finally crapped out on me so I’m in the market for a new vac . Looking for something lightweight with decent suction. Any recommendations ?

    Home Depot or Lowes vacs are perfectly fine for auto needs and more. Shop vac or Rigid, take your pick.

    ^^^^^What these guys are saying i use and severely have abused the blue and gray shop vac, and a red and black craftsman at work. They both lasted couple of years. I mean i really abuse these things, and they have great suction.

    If you have any dewalt tools then maybe a dewalt cordless vac would work awesome for you. Battery power

    Been using the Ridgid 4 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP Portable Wet/Dry Vacuum from Home Depot and love it! On sale right now with car vacuum package for 69.99 at Home Depot. Look up “RIDGID 4 Gal. 5.0 Peak HP Portable Wet Dry Shop Vacuum with Premium Auto Detailing Kit”
