New Egg Cleaning Tool

edited 6:10PM in EggHead Forum
I was walking through the big orange store today and saw something that caught my eye, it's called a Bucket Head. It's a mini wet or dry shop vac that works great for cleaning out the ash from large eggs. The hose is small enough to fit between the fire box and the base to clean out the ash, I pushed to about a 3rd of the way around from left and right. I haven't tried it on the medium or my mini but, I'm reasonably sure it will get the ash out from underneath the fire grate on all of them.
It costs $19.97.

    what capacity does it have? We have a couple small Oreck vaccuums so I laid claim to the black one for my egg ash clean up. That lasted about 1 use and the hose clogged up and the bag was full and those bags aren't cheap so to heck with that idea.

    Without a pic hard to say for sure, but sounds alot like FLP'mans southern engineered flex tube attachment to a shop vac.

    Maybe he'll post his pic for comparison.

    Ron,
    It's 5 gallons. The base is a 5 gallon bucket. I'll send you pictures also.

    A smaller diameter flex tube and duct tape will prob get you around the rest of the space.
    FLPoolman posted a pic of his rigged setup but I didn't save it :(
    Great idea though.
