Not sure why all the glowing reviews of this ash vac. It has obvious design flaws...the hose port is plastic and prone to warpage/burn-thru (it happened to me within the first week), as well as it being mounted so low on the can you can really only accumulate a few inches of ash before the suction stops altogether and needs emptied. It's equipped with a metal hose, yet all 'ash' travels through a plastic port attached to a metal can. Why not make the port metal/aluminum/brass/stainless as well??
Also, the hose continually falls off despite the barbs that should keep it in place. I put tape around it to secure it because it became such a nuisance. The only positive is it does contain the dust that would otherwise circulate throughout the house.
Loveless CS is quick to respond and accommodating to questions/problems, but this ash vac warrants no accolades. I purchased based solely on the positive reviews and wanted a dustless vacuum for my fireplace insert.
Bottom line: other models can be had for the half the price without the inherit design setbacks.
I search far and wide to find the perfect vacuum for cleaning up my fireplace and this has worked great! Still need to order the attachments!
Excellent product. My husband loves it. Great shipping- arrived on time just for Christmas!!

I've been cleaning a pellet stove for 11 yrs. & always dreaded it. This is so much easier. Wish I had purchased long ago. Thanks so much!!!
Was using my shop vac to clean my pellet stove. Not a good thing to do, kept cloging and went through many filters. Received the Cougar for xmas and it is just what was needed. No cloging and the filters will last longer with the shaker. Some reviews have indicated that it is noisy. Guess what folks, it's a vacuum.
I would recommend this vac to anyone with a pellet stove.
item purchased works exactly like I expected.
It works well in picking up the ash outside the fireplace. I am hesitant to use it to remove ash from within the fireplace while the fire is burning-as my husband want to do. He thinks the filter gets bogged down easily. I bought it after he burned up 2 regular vacuum sweeper bags. One still smells like smoke. At least the Ash Vac hasn't burned.

Exactly what is needed when you use a pellet stove as your major source of heat and its cold outside. You don't want your stove to be down too long but it needs to be cleaned. Twice I've gotten some coals in the vac without any problem whatsoever. Very satisfied.
