Wet/dry vacuum cleaners - All information about the all-purpose cleaner

Powerful, speedy and reliable!

Wet/dry vacuum cleaners make anything possible when cleaning. Unlike conventional vacuum cleaners, they don't just suck up dust, lint and other dirt, but also get rid of much rougher and even damp dirt, water and other liquids. This makes them the idea helper in the workshop and outside areas.

So that the wet/dry vacuum cleaners is ready for any use, as well as high suction power, they are also equipped with high-quality materials, such as a stable stainless steel tank and a whole range of different accessories. Thanks to the different nozzles, upholstery or car seats can also be handled by this diverse and multi-talented cleaner. All models also have a blowing function for difficult-to-reach corners.

Wet/dry vacuum cleaners with an integrated cable plug with an automatic function and switch-off delay are also perfect for the workshop, so that any dirt collected during our DIY work is automatically vacuumed up when the tool is switched on. For additional flexibility, cordless models are provided with our Power X-Change range. Whatever requirements you have, the Einhell range offers wet/dry vacuum cleaners for whatever you need.

A huge range of different uses

Wet vacuum cleaning

Dripping wet wellington boots, a knocked-over glass of water, damp dirt and even larger puddles, all of which would pose a challenge for conventional vacuum cleaners, are no problem at all for the wet/vacuum cleaner. With capacities of up to 40 litres, these talented cleaners undo minor mishaps in an instant.

Auch das Nasssaugen ist möglich

Where wood is chopped, splinters must fall. There can be various different types of dirt in a workshop, from wood chips and dust to spilled liquids and coarse dirt. With a wet/dry vacuum cleaner, all of these can be eliminated with just one tool. And thanks to the different nozzles, the device is ready for all eventualities.

Car cleaning

Upholstery and carpeting, narrow joints and hard-to-reach openings, fine, coarse and sometimes even wet dirt – these are the challenges a car-owner faces when cleaning their vehicle. Thanks to its extensive range of different nozzles and attachments, the wet/dry vacuum cleaner is always perfectly kitted out for the job. Long hoses, flexible wheels and convenient carry handles make the vacuum cleaner flexible and easy to clean with.

Blowing function

Dust and splinters often settle on a workpiece. With the wet/dry vacuum cleaner's blowing function, it is easy to remove this kind of light and dry dirt in the workshop. But this function is also a practical feature for outside areas too, as terraces, gardens and driveways can easily be cleared of leaves.

Extraction system

If you want to save tedious cleaning after home improvement work, the wet/dry vacuum cleaner is best used while you work: as an extraction system, the vacuum cleaner can be connected directly to many tools and sucks up the resulting dirt immediately. In many wet/dry vacuum cleaner models, a power socket is also integrated on the device. By being able to connect the tool directly to the vacuum cleaner, the wet/dry vacuum cleaner replaces the need for an additional power socket and an extension cable that may be required.

The right device for every task

How does a wet/dry vacuum cleaner work?

All-round cleaning.

Our two-way system for suction and cooling air ensures separate motor cooling with optimal suction and filter performance of the device.

The motor remains free of dirt, and thus has a longer service life and also ensures less noise.

Suction power

The suction power provides information about the suction force of a vacuum cleaner. This is measured in mbar (millibars) or mWS (metres of water column). This expresses how high you could theoretically suction up the water. Example: 220 mbar = 2.2 MWS = water could be suctioned up approx. 220 cm.

Blowing function

More than just a vacuum cleaner: All of our wet/dry vacuum cleaners are fitted with a special blowing connection. This allows even hard-to-reach places to be blown out easily and thoroughly. In addition, it can also help with many other activities, such as leaf blowing in the garden.

Which filter for each application?

Pleated filter

With the pleated filter, the exhaust air is cleaned when switching on and during use of the wet/dry vacuum cleaner. The pleated filter is suitable for use when dry vacuuming.

Synthetic dust bag

A synthetic dust bag has more layers than a paper filter bag and therefore has an impressive increased filter performance. This accessory is also therefore perfect for allergy-sufferers. Other advantages include the water-repellent and tear-resistant material, as well as the longer service life of the vacuum cleaner.

Dirt bag filter

for dry vacuum cleaning

The Einhell dirt bag filter is suitable for all Einhell wet/dry vacuum cleaners. It is perfectly matched to every application and has an impressively high tear resistance and excellent filter performance.

Foam filter

for wet vacuum cleaning

The Einhell foam filter protects the wet/dry vacuum cleaner's motor from coarse dirt. The foam filter is suitable for use when wet vacuuming.

Ash filter

for ash vacuuming

Connected to the wet/dry vacuum cleaners, the ash filter is suitable for vacuuming cold ashes or cold dirt and dust from furnaces, fireplaces and grills. It prevents coarse contamination of the vacuum cleaner and its filter system. Only the fine dust is sucked in by the wet/dry vacuum cleaner, and the coarse dirt remains in the ash filter.
