    My 8 month old karcher wd3 decided to spit black radiator sludge over customers carpet the other day :mad:. So I'm on the market for a new vac. I've heard good things about the nematic Charles although it seams a bit pricey! Ideally I would like one where you don't have to keep changing filters from wet to dry too.

    What are you guys using??

    Vac king from machine mart, be quick whilst the 14oow motor are still in stock. Just ordered 2 as I don`t want a 900w version. Thought they all had different filters?

    I definitely could recommend the wet and dry vac of parkside. The good thing about it is you can suck and push which is great for draing things :)

    Had a wickes one was the best one until I dropped and cracked it.

    Had a couple of others worst being Titan, metal bodies are a bad idea, you leave any water in them they just rot away until they leak.

    Mine have stainless tanks, they don`t "rot" mind you I don`t leave water in them either! ;)

    I'm sure mine was advertised as stainless, yet I think I grabbed some slightly acidic water once and emptied it then left it to dry itself, would expect this not to happen often don't have time to sit and dry my vac...

    Me neither, just open the drain off and screw the cap back on when done.
