    Hi guys I know this is old ground and I have trawled through old posts as I didn't want to make a new thread but there's not much consistency with recommendations on vacs (mainly for domestic)

    I've been doing it off ladders so far and have pushed all the awkward houses over connies, awkward access ones back so far that I have to do them now.

    Haven't seen mr bump online would be good to know how he's been getting on with the atom now that its a few months in use. Pretty sure he left after some race discussion, shame he was a good guy.

    Thanks Mark. They are very vague on the information of that vac on their site.

    Have bought the atom and imo BRILLIANT, it may be 1200w but it has twice the lift power of my smaller 1400w and it is 10x less awkward to use then a 3000w. I would highly recommend and good price

    I have the sky vac industrial one very good build quality and really powerful was really worried about the carbon poles but after a year of abuse they still fine bit bulky to get in and out of van so have looked at atom for quick jobs .

    I have a eastern trading 3000 watt wet vac I bought second hand and the motors are just not up to it anymore. Can you get new motors for these wet vacs and if so where from please.
