Funny joke, haha But I decided to see what kind of vacuums (this is still a vacuum cleaner right? lol) that are out there in the super-industrial market, and found this. Not sure how much it costs but it's pretty amazing! If I ever get rich I'd love to add one in my collection!

Wouldn't anyone want one of those-I did see one at a yard sale years back but had no use for it.FF to now I could have put it to work in my garage and walks.these things have monsterous quarter in thick steel fans spun by 3-5Hp gas motors-will eat anything they pick up!Then shred it and put the fluff into the huge woolen bag.

Vacuum for teenagers

Huskyvacs; that's quite impressive!
Do you really think it could vacuum up teenagers though? 🤔

Sorry...couldn't resist.

Thats a yard and leaf vacuum. I bought an 8HP one years ago that also took in 3" tree branches on the side and chipped them into mulch. I was hoping it would suck up acorns but it was better at leaves, grass, dirt and such. I ended up selling it for more than I bought it for.

Leaf/Litter vacuums are fun. A couple of years back a friend of mine had the DR leaf vacuum which was essentially the Billy Goat MV600SPE but in a different color. The Briggs and Stratton Quantum engine was started with an electric motor, which was really convenient. We used it "commercially" one summer when we cleaned the neighbors' lawns. It was exceptionally talented at making huge piles of leaves disappear in a heartbeat.

He sold it and got the newer DR leaf vacuum which is a rebranded Merry Mac with pneumatic wheels and an even bigger engine. It's much like the Parker you see in the video and is definitely overkill.

Personally, I bought the self-propelled version of the Craftsman in the link below. For $20 I just couldn't pass up that big vacuum. Each fall it dutifully removes all of my fallen oak leaves.

I'm impressed with the performance of the cleaner in the video that Huskyvacs posted.

By the way, should someone design a bare floor cleaning nozzle with a similar shape to the one in the video? If so, then would such attachment be better than most floor brushes on the market?

Despite how good a direct-suction nozzle is made, you would still want a brush on it for inside bare floors. Fine dust and dirt often sticks to the floor from humidity, skin oils, foundation moisture, etc and a brush needs to dislodge it before it could be sucked up.
Those monster-vacs for outdoor use are designed just for the big visible stuff (and do well at it!)

The teen is going to need to learn about emptying the shop vacuum-have them use a BAG in it instead of collecting debris in the tank-and this keeps the motor filter cleaner and less chance of stuff getting into the motor-killing it.Cleaning the pleated filter is a job that the teen isn't going to want to do.Just easier to use the bag-one usually comes with the vacuum when you buy it-USE THE BAG!!!
