The Cat 6 Tools Electric Drum Vacuum is designed for sand gravel dirt and water.

This Most Powerful Electric Drum Vacuum system pulls 140 inches of water and operates at 140 CFM.  In addition it operates at 120 volts and 13.9 amps.  Even better, this two stage 16 gallon steel drum vacuum is one of the most powerful drum vacs  available.   As a result of Cat 6 Tools engineering, this system is designed with a very efficient tangential side inlet which protects the filters. Additionally, the system comes with 8 feet of our 2-1/2″ OD  low loss vacuum hose. This results in 140 CFM airflow at the business end of the hose.

This is the most powerful electric vacuum drum system available.  It is designed for the Cat 6 Tools line of Holey-Moley Diggers and is made for sucking up everything from water, to sand, gravel and just plain dirt.

This vacuum is made for digging.

We tested this vacuum and lifted 35 pounds of wet sand and gravel 16 vertical feet, through 28 feet of hose and PVC pipe in 42 seconds.  That is an amazing 0.83 pounds a second.  At this incredible rate a 16 gallon vacuum drum will lift 133 pounds of wet gravel in 2.67 minutes.   This vacuum made by Cat 6 Tools, is the most power vacuum drum available.
