Any suggestions on where to buy a new hot ash vac?

Where do you live? and don't tell me you were in Blazing Saddles.
Try this link;Hearth Country Ash Vacuum
LOL Nope not in Blazing Saddles Southern Central Mass
Thanks, I will check out the link.
No Ash Vac is designed to suck up Hot Embers. So be careful what you intend to use it for (and when).
Always best to allow the stove to cool some. Most say "Warm". There definition of "Warm" is not your "Hot".
Mad Dog is right, for the money the one in the link I sent you got good reviews, unlike the Love-less vacs the hose is in the top and is easier to manuver. It also cost about 1/2 of the love-less vacs.
Uh Oh.... My Wife thought Mad Dog was gone and those days were over?? !!.... Heeeee's Baaaaaaack (Scary Voice)

I like the Hearth Country Ash Vac. It's relatively inexpensive compared to other ash vacs. Two seasons with it here and I would buy it again. It seems to be available online for a wide range in price so google it and compare prices to find your best deal.
I have the Hearth Country Vac too, since the last Black Friday weekend. Serves the purpose with a pellet stove for sure.
I bought it here http://www.fleetfarm.com/catalog/product_detail/car-truck/shop-vacuums/hearth-country-400-ash-vacuum and it came with the pellet stove accessory kit packed inside the box, that I've seen listed for as much as an additional $30 bucks.
The page is currently showing $99 + $10.95 shipping for my zip code.
Fleet Farm is our equivalent of TSC. Great place, everything from soup to nuts. The Man's Mall. If F&F don't have it you don't need it!
There is no such thing as a "HOT" ash vac. The vac I have, is a Love-Less Ash vac and it works very well and with warm embers, no other ash vac works like it. It is a higher priced than the other brands, but it works much better and doesn't spread ash like the hearth as vac. I had one of those before and everytime I cleaned the fireplace I had a layer of ash all over the nearby furniture. Use the loveless this doesn't happen, it will last you forever being made well. I bought my ash vac from woodlanddirect.com.
Katie earlier in this thread Mad Dog made that point.
We got ours from Fleet Farm too. $99 and the box said it did NOT come with the pellet stove kit, but it was in there when we opened it.
we have sucked up burning pellets with it once in an emergency, then just emptied into our big ash can. no problem.
Is that Dave Ramsey talking in that video?
I have a love-less ash vac and have for four years. The issue I have is at the rubber part that the attachments go into coming undone from the hose itself. I have been through about three of them. The company has stood behind the product and replaced them free of charge, so no complaints. The vac has worked great besides this.
