After a careful of our current selection and those available on the market, we have determined that there are no better options than those we currently recommend. Whether you need an industrial quality model, such as the Dri-Eaz Sahara Pro X3, or a smaller and more affordable one that would be better suited to home applications, like Shop-Vac Mighty Mini, there is one here for you. We also have a versatile model in the Maxx Air Circulator, which would work just as well for keeping air circulating in a warehouse or outdoor workshop, as it does for quickly drying up spills.

At this time, it remains tough to beat models from Dri-Eaz, including the Sahara Pro X3 and the Studebaker AirPath. The former is less expensive, whereas the latter is somewhat pricey but great for heavy-duty commercial applications. We also like the Soleaire Super Monsoon, which is made for power but remains relatively compact and stackable. For those who may not need as much functionality, we added the Shop-Vac Mighty Mini and the Maxx Air Circulator. These probably won’t be the choice for professionals, but for jobs around the home, they’re simple and effective enough. Plus, neither is overly pricey. There’s also the B-Air VP-25 for smaller jobs; it’s offered in several colors and can be daisy-chained if necessary. For the best results, you might consider using a dehumidifier along with these smaller units.
Karcher AB 84 There’s very little hassle with the Karcher AB 84, as it offers a push handle and a set of wheels that make it a breeze to both use and transport. It has all the features you’d expect from a top-notch unit, too, including a carrying handle and carpet clip. karcher.com
