Details

Safer than using a shop vac or hosehold vacuum; every component of the Cougar Ash Vacuum is designed for safety. Rather than hot embers sitting inside a paper filter bag, surrounded by flammable household debris, the ashes will be held in the fireproof 3 gallon capacity canister. Fine ash particles will not be spread though out you home with the advanced dual filtration system. The first filter is flame retardant for precautionary reasons. The second filter traps sub-micron particles (ash) and has a special snap spring assembly allowing for easier cleaning. You can even clean the filters without opening the canister so no ash has a chance to escape. All you do it jiggle the agitator rod on the lid to knock ash off the filters. The ash vacuums canister stays closed.

The Cougar Quiet Ash Vac is similar to the Cheetah Ash Vac but a bit quieter. It can suck up warm and cold ashes! Using a fire-resistant hose and a specially designed filtering system for ash, the Ash Vac solves the problem of removing ash from wood burning stoves and fireplaces safely.

Product Note: This vacuum is meant for cool and warm ashes only; it cannot be used to pick up embers. Doing so will result in damage to the unit.

What you can safely vacuum

We advise that you always allow enough time for all embers to completely cool off and we offer these guidelines to give you a feel for how fire resistant our fabric filters are.

What we refer as a "firefly" is unlikely to burn a hole in our filter. A firefly is like the tiny spark that floats up out of a fireplace, and it glows for no longer than a firefly, about a second, before it burns out.

What we refer to as a "cigarette" could potentially burn a hole in our filter. It is a piece/chunk of partially burned fuel (wood or pellet) that has a red hot glowing ember attached, much like a cigarette. These carry enough fuel with them, that, if lodged against the filter, with swirling air, could heat up and damage the filter.

If you need to clean a pellet stove while the contents in the pot still seem warm, the best way to ensure your AshVac only picks up only ash, and not large hot embers, is to rest the nozzle at an angle directly on the bottom of the pot, and then move it around so it sucks fine ash particles from the bottom of the pile. The narrow opening between the pot floor and nozzle allows ash through, but blocks larger material, including hot embers that are large enough to be problematic.

We do recommend changing the Ash Vacuum filters once a season. They cannot be washed because they have been treated with a Teflon finish. If you wash them they will get sticky. You can clean the filters after each use by removing the rod cover and shaking the shaker basket by grasping the metal rod sticking up out of the lid from side to side. This is just done if you are losing suction but your canister is not full of ash yet.
