This little 500W hand vacuum/blower from the Metropolitan Vacuum Cleaner Company looks like a handy little tool to keep around the shop or garage for those quick pickup jobs where it take too much time to liberate your shop vac from its dust-collection duties.  Best of all, it’s made right here in the USA.

Metropolitan manufactures the motor unit from steel and powder-coats it black. The 500W fan-enclosed motor pulls 4.5A at 110V, generates enough suction to lift 60″ of water, and can suck or blow 60 cubic feet per minute.

You’ll pay between $60 and $75 for their model VM1250 which includes the 3lb motor, five 2-ply paper bag filters, a shoulder strap, a 19″ flexible hose, a 20″ extension wand, and accessories like a dust brush, crevice tool, upholstery nozzle, and Magic Air inflator adapter.

    Used to use one of these at work to clean out computers. Can make a heck of a mess when attached to the blow side. (all that dirt collects in the hose)

    Had on of these at work, really didn’t suck, nor did it blow. Don’t waste your money. It was elderly which may have been a factor.

    I heard the Met vacs were pretty good for small units. Made in the USA still?
