I'd like to get a good cordless vacuum to vacuum some of Mother Nature's debris.

I have a Shark, small model, that is very good at sucking up such things, but it's getting increasingly difficult for me to reach all the places, so I need a longer handle.

Or should I just drive over to the local car vac and put 50 cents in?

Check out Milwaukee's M18 lithium-ion cordless shop vac.

It's about the size of a decent-sized tackle box (20 in W x 12 in H x 9 in D). Costs about $100 (bare tool -- you'll need the M18 battery and charger...but Milwaukee's lithium-ion stuff is great.) You can pick one up at the big orange borg. Looks to clock in at under 10 pounds. HEPA rated. Can do wet/dry as well.

Since I have a car vac and wash close by that's a no brainer.....I be getting too old and creaky to manhandle such things.

I'm thinking when I've got a couple of bored kids available, I can drive to a nearby vac and let them get in the boat with the hose.

Meanwhile, I put a leaf protected pool cover over it.

They could probably plug the oil leak with a large batch of leaves. They sure find their way to my drain hole and plug it.

If it's for the car/boat get one that plugs into the cig lighter. The rechargeables suck(well ... don't) in my experience.

I hadn't thought of that. Thanks, I'll look at some.
