ArmorAll AA255 Wet/Dry Vacuum Cleaner Review
Ever heard of a vacuum cleaner that doubles in function as a dust buster and as a dryer? Well, there is a product that you thought was just a promotional stunt. Vacuum cleaners are typically devices that suck dirt and dust using partial vacuum created by the rotating motion of a centrifugal fan having a curved opposite that of a blower’s fan.
When this fan rotates in opposite direction, you will have a blower which can dry wet items such as your car’s wheels, grilles, a wet motorcycle from car-washing operation and even wet car’s seat cover, among other items.
The ArmorAll AA255 Wet/Dry Vacuum Cleaner is just designed to give you these impressive features. To learn more about this magnificent product, read on!
1. Auto Shut-off System
This cleaner is equipped with an automatic shut-off system to prevent overflowing of dirt and debris on the cloth filter. This function detects the content of the dirt container. If it sensed that the allowable limit is reached, the unit automatically shuts off.
2. Provision of Heavy-duty Power Cord
The AA255 hand vac is corded with a 10-foot heavy-duty electrical cable to power the unit from source, usually domestic grid supplied lines. The tank is light enough to be carried elsewhere, but it is durable and tough enough to handle top wet and dry mess.
3. Flexible and Extendable Hose
To allow for a better reach for disgusting dirt and dust in your car, this cleaner has a 6-foot extendable hose with a crevice tool on its mouth to suck both solids and liquids giving you diverse functions in terminating dust and debris. The hose is mounted inside the canister of the vacuum.
4. 2-Hp Motor
This unit is powered by a 2-Hp motor, much powerful than other brands of its class. Although the motor has a bigger power rating, it is still compact in design and contour making it lighter than similar units of other models.
5. For Wet and Dry Debris
The machine is engineered to tackle either dry and wet debris or liquids. That is why when you accidentally spilt soda, soup or coffee in your car’s seat or dashboard while you are cruising the road, you can use this sucker to clean up your mess. But stop first on the shoulder before doing this.
6. Could Be Used As Blower/ Dryer
The ArmorAll Wet/ Dry Vacuum Cleaner is also capable of drying wet items such as the outside interior of your car or your wheels, when it underwent car washing operation. There is a switch on the unit to divert the function from suction to blower (the reverse of vacuum pressure). This is normally done when motor’s polarity is reversed, sending the fan to also rotate in reverse direction which now creates positive pressure. Not a bad idea, actually.
7. Large Capacity Dirt Tank
The built-in dirt tank on this product is a 2.5 gallon polypropylene container which could contain solid or liquid debris from homes, vehicles, shops and other sources. The tank is easy to clean because a dirt bag is mounted inside where debris is collected. The dirt bag is washable and reusable.
8. With Built-in Noise Diffuser
If you are allergic to annoying noises, this vacuum will not make you annoyed while using it. The unit is equipped with a built-in air and noise diffuser to minimize the annoying sound the whirling fan makes. Just clever!

Pros & Cons
