Rated 3 out of 5 by ants from Great machine. Too loud. The vacuum is a good size for working in the house or detailing the car. Great portability, the top handle makes handling easy. Excellent suction for a reasonable price. The reason for 3 stars is the vacuum makes way too much noise. If it were quieter would definitely be a 5 star machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CrannyAxe from This is a little powerhouse! I have friends that own this model and, after I had gone through a few of those little bucket style vacs, I decided to purchase a Rigid myself. It was one of those purchases that irritated me because I didn't buy the Rigid in the first place. This vacuum is quite compact and has the power of a larger machine. If you need a vacuum that travels with you, I highly recommend considering this little guy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sen89ew from Amazing suction for such a small unit. This is a small unit with a 5hp motor that provides remarkable suction. I've connected it to a Dust Deputy to create a great dust collection system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HotToddy from Great little unit. Does the trick! I downsized to this unit from a Rigid 12 gallon shop vac. It was big and bulky and I just never needed to vacuum up 12 gallons of waste/water. This 4 gallon model has a bigger motor and better suction. Not to mention a longer cord and the hose seems more flexible and easier to maneuver for my needs. Most vacuuming out the cars, cobwebs in the garage, the occasional spill, etc. I also got rid of my Bissell carpet cleaner as I figured it was easier to spot treat and then vacuum up the water than try and clean the entire rug. All accessories store on board, so that too is a nice feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KayG from Mobility is excellent. Easy to use. Does not blow anything back out with dust bags. (Dust bags expensive.). Bought muffler for it, not very loud. Overall very good product. Only set back is the price of dust bags and where they can be bought.

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

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.
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.
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.
