Additional Accessories

This unit does not come with the drywall sander kit. This is an extra accessory that you must purchase separately if you want to sand drywall. The drywall kit helps keep the dust in the vacuum and not in the air which will not require any dusting afterwards.  They are available in all stores where Shop Vacs are sold.

Here is a very good drywall kit we can recommend it’s the Hyde Tools 09170 Dust-Free Drywall Vacuum SanderHyde Tools 09170 Dust-Free Drywall Vacuum Sander. This drywall sander should fit most Shop Vac vacuums.


If you should buy this model, you will be very happy with your purchase. This model should give you long life because the motor can hold up under extreme conditions and heavy use. This is just what a home re-modeler needs.
