Have you ever been stuck without a pump and had to inflate a queen-sized air mattress using only your lungs? I have, and I wouldn’t recommend it; I nearly passed out several times. A pump is the obvious solution, but why buy a pump when you can use another tool you already have?

Shop-Vac’s turbo nozzle may not be a new tool, but it’s new to me.

Strap on Shop-Vac’s ShopPac Back Pack Vac and you won’t have to worry about knocking over the canister or getting it stuck between a bench and a sawhorse.

They don’t list the tank size on the 6.5 Hp vacuum, so it probably isn’t very large, but then again who wants to carry 12 gallons of debris on their back?  It’s also not a wet-vac so you don’t want to start sucking water or wet garbage with the vacuum. The vac mounts to an adjustable back pack harness system, or if you want to carry it, you can use the top-mounted handle.

The Vac features a 25ft. cord and a 4′ lock-on 1-1/4″ diameter hose. It also comes with two metal extension wands and a dual surface nozzle which both store on the vacuum. Like most Shop-Vacs it uses a cartridge filter and a disposable filter bag. Pricing starting at $130.
