Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small buy mighty Purchased this vac to clean up soot after the Thomas Fire in Ventura, CA. Much more effective than a home canister vacuum. Long cord very helpful. Picked up fine soot as well as larger pieces of burnt materials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong suction. 13th I have had this vacuum for 2 weeks now and used it on several projects around the house. As long as you keep the filter unclogged, the suction is great. It met my expectations entirely. Hopefully it will stand the test of time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small, has wheels, long power cord It's great vacuum for the money, my only negative is there is no way to keep the wrapped around the vacuum during storage and transport. I've been using some small bungee cords to keep it in place, but something built-in or included would have gave it 4 stars for ease of use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, so far so good. It is a small shop vac with ample power. It does not come with a floor tool. I had to spend $12 to get one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice product I bought the vacuum a week ago for my cars and for doing along baseboards in our home. Vacuum works great for both jobs. I would have rated it a five for ease of use but the hose is a little stiff. Other than that it has performed well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lack of attachments It has a lot of power, but needs more flexibility in the hose and should include more attachments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High on Durability, Average on Convenience It seems really lazy to say that I am less inclined to grab this wet/dry vac off the shelf just because it's not battery-operated. I have to walk a few more steps to an outlet and plug it in, or--Heaven forbid-- get an extension cord out, too. But this is the only downside to this vacuum, except perhaps having to change the filter model if you're going to use it for the wet vac function. But, this goes for all Wet/Dry vacs. I debated getting the battery-operated one, but the reviews about batteries draining faster made me reconsider. All in all I think you'll be pleased with this product. I used it to suck up all the pine needles all over my house after Christmas. It was awesome!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It says it is 5 HP, Not great suction for 5 HP, very few accessories for the price Only thing going for this product is the small size. Poor suction and few accessories, high price for what you get.

Seeing as there is no foam filter with this unit, will it damage the vacuum to remove the filter for vacuuming up liquid?

Asked by: Timj
Absolutely! There must be a foam filter on the unit when vacuuming up liquids to prevent debris from getting in to the impeller.

replacement / different filters

it seems like all the filters you sell are for the larger vacs, are there any filters available to purchase for this vacuum if we need to replace the stock one or want a different filter? thanks

Did I get a dud?

I have had this unit for a very short time with light use......partly because I cant get to suck anything. I purchased to suck up water from when my washer leaked and it picked up nothing.....also when trying to suck up dry materials. it wouldn't even pick up a penny off the floor...Am I doing something wrong? When I remove the hose the suction is very strong...but when the hose is attached the suction is very poor...
Asked by: JenniferCordova
Have you checked the hose for obstructions something may have it clogged

How often do I need to change the filter?

I have been cleaning out the ducs in my house and the one I got with the machine today already looks very dirty.
Asked by: bama97202
not sure, I use the bags for dry pick up only and the filter stays clean. You can feel the bag to see if getting full. For filter, suggest once a year if you use it to clean air ducts only...doesn't sound like you use it a lot. filters can last a long time and look like they are very dirty. You can take the filter off and tap it inside a garbage bag and run fingers over the filter to get some dirt, dust cobwebs off.

How do you clean the power head

and after removing the filler I noticed that a good amount of dust collects around the filler . I believe this happens when a bag is not used. In which I plan to do. I'm new to the product this will be my first time using it, being so Ied like to clean it thoroughly, for I'll be using inside my house.
Asked by: Donarp
Unless you are using it as a wet vac make sure to use a clean filter that is properly installed, (it's simple), and if need be wipe down the motor housing with a damp, not wet, cloth with the unit unplugged.
