Double Duty "Air Gun" Works As A Vacuum Or Blower
The "Safety-Vac II" is equipped with a built-in venturi valve that creates a powerful vortex for vacuuming. By flipping a lever the venturi can be reversed for blowing.
"It has amazing power for a wide variety of applications," says Roy Mai. "It's strong enough to suck 3/8-in. nuts out of a bucket. You can vacuum into a sack or hook a hose up to it to carry material away. It also works great for blowing out combine and tractor cabs and for cleaning grilles. It's made from cast aluminum so it's resistant to most chemicals, and it has no moving parts so it's maintenance-free.
"It requires a minimum of 80 lbs. of air to operate but the more pressure you have the better it vacuums."
Sells for $55 plus S&H.
