In this video clip, I'll be taking about the blower feature. For most operations, you're going to be using your shop vac to vacuum up potentially things in your car, house, workshop. This particular shop vac also has a feature that allows you to blow air. So it can be used as kind of like a power sweeper or a leaf blower. Now the front of our vacuum has an endless port which will allow you to suck up materials and the back of our vacuum has an exit port. This is going to allow you to use your vacuum as an air blower. To switch your vacuum over you need to remove the holes from the front and place the holes into the vac. Now when you turn it on, there is going to be lot of air coming out of the holes rather than going in. When using this feature, you do however want to be very careful because when using certain attachments the powerful force of air coming out can actually injure you or injure someone else. Or it can kick up debris that can potentially hurt you or someone else.
