They got one but they don't do it enough and the person doing it is clueless.

I use my shop vac, with the brush attachment on the hose. Works like a champ.

No rotating brushes on simonis, though!

I've been doing it this way for 20 years, and my shop vac is 4.25 HP, so I don't think suction is a big problem. No rotating brushes on mine, and spinning around real fast while I'm cleaning the table, makes me dizzy and I fall down. So no issues there, either.

I would never do that.
Picked up mine from a pawn shop
for $150 17 years ago.(all attachments included)
Still works as good as the day I bought it.

They can be had very cheap used and are built like
a tank.

Newer vacuums(dyson, etc) are built like a plastic
Chinese dollar store toy.

Cleaned rooms for years, only concern would be ''too much'' suction with your choice. I've always used the compact/tristar/Can type unit. It's a great Vacuum. I'm actually replacing the motor, after 30 years of usage. I also use it on the output side to clean my gutters, blows leaves out and also is powerful enough to blow away (if dry) the pebbles that come off your shingles and builds up in your gutters.

Here is what I use, a little Oreck with a brush attachment. I inherited an old Kirby years ago and it does have an attachment with a round brush, so I might just give it a try. My only concern with the old Kirbys is might they have too much suction for pool table cloth?

I have used it on my table.
Skinny edge attachment tilted to get under the rail.
Brush attachment for the cloth.
I've never had it pull up the cloth.

Use it on the floor, table, if your buddy spills a drink on the carpet
You can shampoo it.

It's worked well for me for a long time.
Parts are readily available and reasonable.
In my experience it has been great.

I remember the Kirby man came to my mumís house 15-20 years ago. Normally door to door types get the cold shoulder of course but this dude came packing a freaking vacuum of solid steel. The thing was indeed built like a tank.

I was only a scamp so I donít remember if I ever used the thing or not but my mom loved it. Donít know what happened to it but wherever it is I know itís still kicking ass and sucking dirt.

I need something for my table as well. I made the mistake of not covering it for a year or two now itís just all clogged up and a moist rag canít cut it.
