We dig the Shop-Vac Blower System’s Transformer-like vibe: it starts off as a normal wet/dry vacuum (with a 4-1/2 hp motor and 12 gallon capacity bucket), but the motor in the top separates to become a detachable leaf blower.
Sure, your Shop-Vac blows, too. But this one’s a little different. Its head is completely removable via a pair of side clips that release with just a push. The 18′ power cord is attached to the blower, so there’s no extra hassle plugging it in, either; just attach your preferred length of blower tube and a nozzle and you’re ready to go — provided whatever you want to blow around is less than 18′ from a power outlet.
One complaint, though: if the demonstration video on the Shop-Vac site had the shown someone blowing sawdust out of the garage and into the neighbor’s yard while holding a cold beer — instead of vaccuming up bark and blowing leaves around — we’d probably be more inspired to part with $145. We’re just sayin’.
