Best Vaccum that still sucks hard with a crevice tool.

Hi, what vaccum (mains or battery) do you get good effect using, in particular with a narrow crevice tool, most that i have tried loose suction when throttled down.

Thanks

my 5 year old titan still sucks as hard as the day I braught it

I use it without the wheels and it does wet pickup so combine it with a upholstery tool for all your needs

Henry, for me I'd even say you get more suction with the crevice tool attached, it must be good as the wife has relegated the Dyson in favour of the Henry.

I've used my VAX 3161 for nearly a decade now, and it still sucks as hard as a Bangkok hooker regardless of the size of tool used...

Agree with Rian with the Titan. Brill bit of kit for all sorts of jobs - the bags are absolutely massive that come with it, did a whole bathroom full of rubble (after taking down the lathe and plaster walls) with a single bag. Has a plug socket on it too which is great for DIY jobs - plug your sander in it and it starts up the vac automatically too. It has the ability to blow too - you connect the hose on the back - though I haven't tried it as I have a compressor for blowing our the water on my car post wash.
Made pretty solid too, mine does duty in the garage as a shop vac and for the cars.
