The Root 6 makes a pretty decent light hand vac for use around the house. If you’re looking for something to dust with or to clean up small (dry) spills, it’ll handle the job. And in case you haven’t noticed, it looks pretty cool.
A shop vacuum it’s not.
It won’t pick up anything much heaver than a small screw, and larger objects — like, for example, an 8 penny nail, tend to get hung up in the 90-degree turn from the nozzle into the debris can. This, as we can attest, is a real pain in the ass as you have to fish them out with pliers and a screwdriver. So — note to self — don’t do that.
Large, light debris like dead grass and larger dead bugs tend to fill the Root’s small debris bin quickly, and large amounts of metal filings can clog up the filters in, well, no time flat.
Did we mention it looks wicked cool?
Street pricing starts around $150.
