Can a shop vacuum be set up on its side?

Recommended Posts

I am reorganizing my work room to try and free up some space. I would like to keep my shop vac below a shelf under my workbench. It will not fit upright but can fit if I position it on its side.

I want to see if anyone thinks that will damage the shop vac or diminish its effectiveness.

Probably be easier on the motor bearings being on it's side. Are you going to add a hose on the exhaust side so you can vent it outside?  I do that with the one I use it to clean up the soot and ash from the pellet stove.
