well i had been searching for a vaccum transfer system to suck fert outa hoppers and back into the bag, such does exist but you need a pretty high cfm air compressor to run the gun, not reasonable for a mobile setup in my trailer

so i found this stainless steel wall mount vac i just put into my trailer,
it runs off my trailers inverter , has an 18' hose so i can clean up spills etc. in or outside, and it wet/dry --

gonna get one for garage at my house next

should make life a bit easier this yr

How can you run it off truck voltage. Do you mean you have an inverter to produce 120 volts? A vacuum like that would draw a lot of watts--how big is your inverter?

May I suggest a dustbuster (an idea I learned about on this site).
OR...use one of those small leaf suckers like homeowners use for leaves. They are also small blowers of course.

If you are back at the garage, of course, use a wet/dry vac. Make sure it is mostly plastic as the fert is corrosive to metal.

Wax everything with car wax (another idea from this site), reduces sticking.

the vac basically 900 w max, part of the reason i choose this one,
inverter is 1500 w max , my microwave in the trailer actually draws more
