This page offers an ad-free experience, in exchange for "Check Price" and review links to lead to the stores you know, which pay us a commission that has no effect on your price. Items are chosen independently (regardless of price) by our computer review crawler and commented by human analysts. Read more about our constantly-updating unique ranking system


Our list showing the newest small shop vacuums includes only shop vacuums that obey to these rules:

  • Mini shop vacs must be part of the 1- to 2-gallon shop vacuum class and no bigger than 3 gallons
  • They typically feature a peak horsepower of less than 3HP and some of them, but not all, are still portable, but do not include casters, given their small size.
  • * This list focuses only on corded, standard small shop vacs, so it does not include cordless models (of which many are small), which have their own list
