Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy set up; easy to use Minor assembly required. Worked great out of the box picking up water in the basement. 6 gallons was just enough so that it was easy to carry when filled with water. Easy on/off dust filter. comes with one attachment. Crevice tool would have been a nice addition as well as some kind of squeegee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Just the right size. I have had smaller ones that just did not do the job. I have a larger one for the shop but I use this one inside the house for pet hair (think German Sheppard). We have tile floors so it rolls quite easily. I also like the larger on/off switch.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing The hose comes off constantly because the piece that is supposed attach it to the body of the vac comes off as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from very good product at a reasonable price While it is too soon to know how "durable" this product is {I've only had it for about a week} I can attest to the fact it is very easy to assemble and to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this 3.5 hsp one from Home Depot to replace my stolen 5 hsp Craftsman. Bought this 3.5 hsp one from Home Depot to replace my stolen 5 hsp Craftsman. So far it is doing really well. I like the convenience of a bag insert. I like the weight of the smaller unit and it does clean well for a 3.5 hsp. Still figuring out which attachments will work for me. Have the water pick up filter in case I need to make the switch. It was built in to the craftsman.

I can't seem to get the extension wand to connect to the hose. Is there a trick to this? It just doesn't seem to fit right.

What is the filter mesh size?

What is the smallest particles that it will filter out? Dust, pollen, mold?
Asked by: Scotster
Vacuum comes with a single pleat paper filter VF4000 for large dirt/sawdust size. You can purchase a 3 layer filter VF5000 for dust/drywall dust or a 5 layer HEPA filter VF6000 for pet dander/mold/pollen. The VF7000 is a foam filter for use during wet vacuuming.
