The Armor All vacuum cleaner is an ideal choice for those looking for a cheap, but powerful, vacuum cleaner. This one is specifically made for car and garage cleaning. Its compact design allows you to easily fit it inside of your car or carry it with you through the garage as you clean. Because it's so lightweight, you'll have a much easier time using it.
Despite its smaller nature, it still provides decent suction thanks to its 2-Peak horsepower motor. Because such a small design can sometimes lead to overflows and damaging the inner machinery, the vacuum makes sure it protects itself with an auto shut-off function. Before the vacuum overflows, it will automatically turn off to prevent any more from being taken into the tank. This informs you that it's time to empty the vacuum before resuming your cleaning.
The bags that come with the vacuum can also be cleaned out and reused. This makes the vacuum cleaner even more affordable.
Besides operating as a vacuum cleaner, it can also be used to pick up wet messes. Despite being on the smaller size, this vacuum has practically everything you could need in a compact shop vac.
