The 10 Best Wall Mounted Vacuums
This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Wall-mounted vacuums can help keep a workshop clean without taking up floor space. These convenient devices are a smart choice for actively used garages and sheds, as many can handle both dry and wet messes, and often can be used as blowers and inflation stations, too. Most models provide excellent suction, come with cleaning attachments, and feature extra-long hoses.

Wall-mounted vacuums are a must-have for active shops and garages. When updating this list, we kept in mind motor and suction capabilities, whether or not tools and accessories were included, the canister's capacity for holding messes, and hose length.
For the most part, our list features the same excellent brand models as before, like the VacuMaid GV50Pro, which delivers superior suction without making too much noise, the Bissell Garage, which boasts the same trusted quality as the brand's better-known in-home options, and the Craftsman 2.5 Gallon, which is a smaller, portable choice that's great for cleaning auto interiors, among other things. In fact, we moved this model up a spot for its versatility and convenience.
This time around, we decided to remove the Workshop Portable from our list of recommendations, as it hasn't proven to be as durable over time as we would like. We added the Prolux Wet-Dry, which is longer lasting, plus offers surprisingly strong suction capability for its size.
If you're looking for shop vacuums with more portability, we suggest checking out our cordless shop vacuums ranking. Just remember that a battery-operated vacuum will generally not provide as much suction power as one that's plugged into an outlet. If auto care is your main concern, we also recommend researching the options available on our car vacuums page.

Made sure to include a wide variety of sizes, since some people need a large capacity, but others value space-saving instead. Some of these options are easy to transport, while others should be left on the wall and rarely if ever taken down. Luckily, these more stationary models tend to come with long hoses, so you can get plenty of reach.
