Blog | December 5th, 2017

At Peninsula Mowers Mornington we understand that there are specific tools that are needed for specific jobs. Having been in the industry for years, we pride ourselves on not only offering those tools to customers but we also pride ourselves on offering them the information that they need in order to succeed with them. Today, our focus is going to shift to the comparison between wet vacuum and dry vacuum cleaners. While everyone is familiar with the conventional household vacuum cleaner, most people don’t take the time to distinguish between the two different options. Let’s fix that for you today.

Wet Vacuum Cleaners vs Dry Vacuum Cleaners

Today’s discussion is going to revolve around our line of Stihl Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaners. Stihl is one of the most prominent cleaning system manufacturers in the country, and for good reason. Priding themselves on quality engineer and functionality, Stihl has some of our favourite vacuum cleaners on the market. Now, let us compare their wet and dry vacuums to see the primary differences between them.

Collection Bin: The first difference between a wet vacuum and a dry vacuum comes by way of the collection compartment within the cleaning system itself. Now, while most vacuums look similar on the outside — their interior components are quite different. A dry vacuum cleaner, for example, has a special interior compartment that filters and absorbs dry particulates. However, this dry compartment is not equipped to handle liquid. A liquid container, conversely, will be water-proofed to handle liquid absorption. Simple, right?

Interior Components: Looking past just the container, we can see that wet vacuum cleaners are engineered in such a way so as to protect ALL of the interior components from liquid. Wet cleaners have all of their electrical components safeguarded from water. Dry vacs, on the other hand, will struggle or suffer from short-circuits and malfunctions if they run into a wet clean-up.

The Stihl Vacuum Advantage

Now that we know the two key differences between wet vacuums and dry vacuums, we can shift our discussion to Stihl products specifically. Stihl creates all of their vacuum cleaning systems with premier parts as well as a diverse selection of options. Wet vacuums and dry vacuums are available, each with specific air, fleece, or water filters installed. You also have the option of pursuing a hybrid vacuum cleaner that has a toggle switch to shift between wet and dry applications.
