Hillbilly Vacuum

I recently discovered that my Hillbilly Vacuum worked just as well in the SLK as it works in the big truck. A special upsweep motion is required for SLKs (high door sills)....good technique is always the key to success!

The HBV has some innovative features.......it is cheap ($3.67 @ WalMart), cordless, bagless, makes little noise, and in a pinch it can be used to defend aginst all sort o' critters.
