Quick test of Bosch AdvancedVac 20

Quick test of Bosch Advanced Vac 20 vacuum cleaner I bought for our garage - tested with some sawdust, rubber carpet, attached to power tool (skil jigsaw), in general - it sucks! As it is supposed to do :) Haven`t tested with water yet, but water is not what I bought it for so maybe later.
