We use this portable vacuum on small job sites. It does a great job. Not too bad of a price either.

I've got one of these and they work great. It is a battery eating mofo though so if you only have the older batts don't bother.....I get about 20 minutes out of the new RedLithium 4.0 batteries from a full charge.

When I worked at a vet, the dr was annoyed by the clinic cat shedding everywhere. And he loved to sleep on the autoclave and other totally inappropriate places too. One of my tasks was to brush him with a flea comb to help with the shedding. I could brush him for hours and itd still pull off non-attached hair. So, I tried using a shop vac on him at one point. Sadly, that didn't even work.

dgerb I tried most everything for dog hair with no luck, until I got this vacuum attachment made by Ontel, one sweep pet hair remover, around $15 on Amazon....it works

blackx5 Attachment 276450

Vac and blo. Shoulder strap and a lot of attachments. Can put hose on other side to blow. Hence the name...

River Hill I think I am going to LineX the inside. The dog hair is almost impossible to get out.

OffRoadWarrior I'll use an upholstery attachment hooked up to my Miele. With a bit of rubbing and 15 minutes I'm hair free. IMO these are the best vacuums available. I don't buy any of that Dyson no loss of suction advertising, plus I like vacs with HEPA filters. FYI, James Dyson is a phenomenal advertising pitch man, but (IMO) just because he say's so doesn't make it so... I'll agree they're better than the cheapo vacs available at every big box store.

HillbillyJeeper Could nair the dog. Be kinda cool rollin around with a hairless dog... Could tell people its some kind of exotic dog from the middle east or something.

Moabite The DeWalt DC515 is the best I've found. It really sucks...wet or dry. And the 18-volt batteries are interchangeable with other DeWalt tools.

Rubber gloves work great!! I use them for getting the pet hair off my furniture works better than anything else I have tried for pet hair.

LameStory I have this one here and it's great. Very easy to use since you're only holding the hose and not the whole unit, has incredible suction and comes with several attachments for pet hair. I don't want to claim it's 100% as far as pet hair removal but it's the best I've found.

And it's incredibly quiet so I can do it in the parking lot of my apartment without annoying the neighbors.

Yes indeed.

I had to do that after I buried mine up to the top of the fenders.. And that's AFTER I parked it in the pasture on top of two irrigation sprinklers.

2five22 My dog sheds like mad. I found that a damp cellulose sponge rubbed on the carpet actually pulls up a lot of the fur. It doesn't get it all, but it looks a lot better after a day of him in the back.

For a vacuum, I use a Shop-Vac.

CrazyBull BTW. I know you're all new so please don't get easily offended by mall crawler remarks, shaving your dog to remove hair, etc. That's an example of most of us poking friendly fun, not being mean. With as many posts as I have I do believe I've seen all of the most offensive and if my comments earlier set you off, well....
07-22-2013 09:21 PM
CrazyBull I have leather seats but I still have the neoprene seat covers. Dog hair comes right off.
07-22-2013 07:55 PM
Krawlersaur I don't think so... My dogs ride the trails with me, and I spend 30 minutes trying to get all the hair out.
07-22-2013 07:44 PM
Ripnowell45 I got this little shop vac from Lowes last weeks and love it. I use the small attachment and it got a ton of dog hair out. My back seat was covered and it is all gone. For $30 its worth it. And it is really easy to move around.

Yep. X2. Gave up and pulled the carpet totally out in the back. I have a full sized Dyson plus the hand-held Animal. They do an excellent job on everything except the fur in the Jeep Velcro. I mean Jeep carpet. (Does work great on the fur on my neoprene seat covers; just not the carpet)
I wind up vacuuming and then lint rolling.

Aeschylus I also recommend the Dyson handheld. We bought one about a year ago. Primarilry we use it for the stairs in the house (works as well as a full-sized vacuum) and vacuuming out the vehicles. Full charge lasts about 15 - 20 minutes.

I used it this past week to get all the leaves and such out of the Jeep after offroading in the woods.

brighton Not inexpensive, but these Dyson's are amazing machines, and they last a long time on a charge, enough to thoroughly clean the Jeep front and back without recharging.

I believe I found one that was about $50 cheaper on Amazon.

A Good Jeep Vacuum?

Hi Everyone,

Thinking about getting a vacuum just for the jeep, something easy to get in the cracks, but that is also good at pulling pet hair out of the cloth seats. Any recommendations? Something hand/held / shoulder held that isn't like a giant upright would be great.
