Flame Resistant for Safety
The Cougar is designed with safety in mind. It features a steel nozzle with a five-foot flame-resistant hose and a fireproof three-gallon steel chamber. The patented filter system uses fire-resistant fabric rated up to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, and the remaining parts are all made out of thermo-plastics to withstand high temperatures.

NOTE: Never use a household, or shop vacuum to clean a fireplace, because warm embers can be hidden under ash, which acts like an insulator and can keep embers hot for days after you think the fire is out. The combination of swirling air and debris inside a flammable paper bag filter is an extremely dangerous fire hazard.

Filter System Captures the Smallest Airborne Ash Particles
The Cougar features a double filter system that ensures no ash escapes the vacuum. This system leaves your air ash free and makes the process of cleaning your fireplace simple, clean, and healthy.

Each of the system's filters is designed to trap the finest ash, and the second filter even captures sub-micron particles. This double-filter action effectively traps ash, so your air stays clear.

Clean Filters Without Removing the Lid
Your Cougar's filters can be cleaned without removing them from the vacuum, eliminating any potential mess. For a quick dust-off, simply remove the brass cap from the lid and jiggle the agitator rod from side to side to shake the filters and make ash particles fall off.

After you have vacuumed up 60 to 80 gallons of ash, your Cougar will be ready for a thorough cleaning. Just detach and vacuum the secondary and primary filters to clean them.

Three-Gallon Canister Requires No Bags
The Cougar Ash Vacuum features a cold-rolled steel canister that will hold up to three gallons of ash. This fireproof canister safely contains your ashes without bags, so you'll never need to worry about expensive and annoying replacements. Just remove the canister's lid when it's time to empty your ashes.

Removes Ash Quickly and Quietly
Thanks to its powerful, six-amp electric motor, the Cougar can suck up ash quickly and easily. What's more, specially designed motor housing makes operation as quiet as can be. In fact, the Cougar is the cadillac of ash vacuums, operating with 60% less noise than the Dustless Technologies Cheetah II.

To help speed up ash removal, the Cougar's crimped steel nozzle is designed to quickly pick up ash and leave larger debris behind--for burning at a later time. To use, just place the vacuum nozzle directly on the hearth and swipe it in a circular motion. Ash will flow smoothly through the hose without clogging.

Love-less Ash Company History Out of the rural, coal-mining town of Price, Utah, Love-Less Ash Company was founded in July of 1988. Mike Loveless invented the original Ash Vacuum in 1983 because his wife, Colleen, had had it with the dust that was associated with their wood stove. The original ash vacuum was used for 5 years in their home while friends and family wanted one just like it. Finally, they ventured into the business of manufacturing ash vacuums for resale and did it in a one-car garage. Mike handled all research and development while Colleen handled the business end of things. Mike received his first patent in 1989, his second in 1993, his third in 1997 and his 4th in 1999. The first Ash Vacuums produced, were attachments to another vacuum source. They had a fire retardant filter and the customer’s home vacuum acted as the second filter. The original vacuums were well received but some stove owners needed time to get used to the concept of VACUUMING the ash from their stoves. It had not been successfully done before this time. In 1990, a motorized unit was introduced and was exactly what the public wanted. The Cheetah was introduced and has been modified to be the Cheetah II. It is now the standard size for ease and convenience in the market place. The Cougar was introduced in 1999 and is also a quiet version of the Cheetah II. In April of 1997, a second specialty vacuum was introduced to market. This was a 16 gallon "Dustless" Wet/Dry & Drywall Vacuum. It had been on the drawing board for 3-4 years. Wet/Dry & Drywall Vacuums will handle the very fine dust such as sheet rock and sanded concrete dust and the consumer can change from dry to wet and back to dry applications without changing the filters and still maintain great suction. The 16002 was introduced in 1998 and the "Quiet" 16004 QV hit the market in 1999. The Turbo Drywall Sander was introduced to market in November of 2000. It was 3 years in the making. This new tool is revolutionizing – sanding drywall. This sander is powered by the suction of our drywall vac. The head vibrates to do the sanding for you while the tube draws the dust right into the vacuum. The remodeling industry has been asking for a product like this for years and we are pleased to have it available. Now a totally "dust free" solution to a very messy job. The company has changed its manufacturing facility three times. It moved from a one-car garage to a new and larger shop, to the facility it is in presently.
