After two years of waiting the manufacturer of PowerSmith ash vacuums, Richpower Industries, have at last released new accessories for their ash vacuum cleaner. The first is a set of cleaning tools comprising of a hose adapter, nozzle brush, crevice cleaning tool and clear pellet stove hose all contained in a handy storage bag which keeps everything together and easily stored and all for less than $25
For pellet stove users the occasional deep clean is made easier by the clear tubing which reaches the awkward places which are not easily accessed and thus are prone to the buildup of ash and debris manufactured during normal combustion.
The nozzle brush fits on the outside of the nozzle to enable easy cleaning of the glass screen at the front which will obviously get "smoked" up and stained during the burning process and can also be used to brush the sides and top of the stove to remove any soot which has attached itself to the body of the stove during normal usage and is not easily vacuumed away due to its tendency to adhere to the inner surfaces of the appliance
The crevice tool fits on the outside of the vacuum hose and enables you to reach those places which are too small for the hose nozzle to fit into but large enough to retain ash and debris which are detrimental to the efficient running of your stove. The new set of cleaning tools are a must have accessory and improve the cleaning power and adaptability of this excellent ash stove cleaner and comes with their own tidy bag to keep them safe and together.
As with the accessories supplied with the original machine you must ensure that the debris being removed is no warmer than 140 degrees Fahrenheit and should the rubber covered metal hose start to get warm you should stop vacuuming immediately and empty the ashes out in a safe manner to ensure there is no danger of fire.
The other new accessory is the 10 foot replacement hose which is twice the length of the standard supplied hose and is manufactured to the same high specification as the original in rubber covered metal tubing. This is suitable for temperatures up to 140 degrees as is the original. This extra length is very useful in cleaning ventilation grills and other high level apertures which could harbor dust. It is also useful when using the appliance as a normal vacuum cleaner as you can leave the vacuum on the floor and you have 10 foot plus the extra nozzles that come as standard to increase the cleaning range of the PowerSmith ash vacuum.
So it seems that these new accessories will be a definite advantage and increase the cleaning capabilities of a very efficient ash stove vacuum cleaner.
