    My parents got this for me on a trip to the USA.

    It’s a sweet little unit, and pretty damn powerful. Great for those little jobs where you don’t want to drag out a big beast of a vac. And for 20$? Sold

    Now, if I could find brush attachments that fit the hose.

    I have two of the bucket heads, they are nice little vacs. They are a little loud but have decent power and you can’t beat the price.

    I am pretty sure that HD sells attachments that fit the small hose that comes with the bucket head.

    Not too bad. Still loud, but not like normal ones of comparable size

    I use mine very often. It’s great! As far ad attachment goes you need to find someone throwing away an old vacuum. The little pieces fit in that hose.

    I looked at one but didn’t think it would handle the drywall and other fine dust as well as a regular shop vac so I passed. Other than that I was sold.

    So that’s not quite what I thought this thread was going to be about with a name “bucket head”… lol.

    I was thinking makeshift port a john discussions…

    I’ve never used one though. Seen them often but I have 2 vacs on the trailer as it is.

    Holy cool, I’ve never seen such a thing. I’m really not sure what the advantage is but it’s unique and that’s what I like about it, As long as it sucks good I’m in

    The advantage is size. If I did a new entry door for someone why lug a huge shop vac around? The bucket head is perfect. Or say I just installed knobs on your cabinets. Again use the bucket head as the size makes moving around the kitchen great.

    Do they have bags for them? If they do I could see the use but if not then it kind of limits what you can use them for.

    Exactly. Pop the head off and dump right into the garbage. It’s not like it’s a big bulky shop vac

    Exactly why these would be so convenient for the small job. I am like a few others in that I have not seen one of these before. They look great for use with the car and garage too. Going to have to stop at HD and see.
