If someone has 110 volts available, even with a long extension cord the VM4BS500 is the way to go. Nothing beats the 500 watts of power that it offers with the exception of the 4.0 Peak HP VAC N BLO. Bottom line, I still push 110 volts over 12 volts. The 12 volt AM4BS comes in handy when 110-volt AC outlets are just not available (apartment/condo owners). As 12-volt cigarette lighter adaptor models go, this is the best. The vacs look identical with the exception of the motor and cord. VM is 110 volt and AM series is 12-volt. Both models also have the same MSRP.
The cloth bag must be used in conjunction with the paper bag. You can continue to use the paper bag or just use the cotton cloth bag. Users don’t necessarily have to use the paper bags although it is a lot more sanitary to dispose of the paper bags than the “shake out the dirt” from the cloth bag. We also recommend that you continue using paper bags he 3 ply paper bags helps to prevent dust from entering the motor end environment.
To maximize the blowing power; remove the front end cap and cloth bag, leave the foam filter in place and leave it wide open. Do not replace the front end cap. The VAC N BLO is designed to blow water out
of hard to reach inaccessible areas of your vehicle. It is not capable of drying your entire car. You'd need the master blaster for that.
The Master Blaster features two twin fan 4.0 Peak Horse-power motors capable of delivering up to 58,000 feet-per-minute of clean, dry, warm, filtered air! Each motor is controlled by a separate switch that allows you to select from three different airflow and temperature levels up to 60º above ambient. If you use ONLY the FRONT motor, you’ll get one level of blowing power and heat. If you use ONLY the BACK motor, you’ll get another level of blowing power and heat. The truth is that these two scenarios above (of operating one motor at a time) are not really dramatically different.
Occasionally, we will receive calls from users saying that their MASTER BLASTER & BLASTER HOSE is defective. 99.99% of the time it is not. We don’t glue one of the hose ends on the 10 or 30-foot hose to provide greater flexibility in adjusting the air flow. There are times that the hose end will come “unscrewed”. The hose is not defective. The hose end came off.
You may have purchased a 120-volt product and are running at 220-240 volts. We do indeed manufacture 220-240 volt units that are suitable for use in your country. We don’t recommend the use of transformers. You would need a new motor and new cord. By the time you get done with the cost of the components and shipping costs you may be better off ordering a NEW correct 220-240-volt product from one of our suppliers.
Our units have been known to run hot. It is completely normal, however, if the heat is excessive, please call customer service. You should always make sure that his dust bag is not too full and their filter is clean.

The VAC N BLO is a phenomenal vacuum cleaner for detailing your car. The compact size and awesome suction power makes quick work of cleaning carpeting and upholstery. The blower feature on the VAC N BLO will certainly clear water from door jambs, seams, and other hard to reach areas. If you want to dry an entire car in 15 minutes or less I would recommend the MASTER BLASTER. You can see it in action here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bZHho9Bdxg
