Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built product I purchased this as a replacement for my 20 year old Ridgid Wet/Dry vac with detachable blower. That product performed very well and without trouble until recently. Certainly exceeded my expectations during the 20 years of use. I am very impressed with the new replacement. Nice, thoughtful ergonomic and functional enhancements, including locking hose to tool mechanism so they don't fall off the hose (an occasional problem with the old one and certainly an issue when using as blower), a place to wrap up the cord and the hose, and more tool storage. I also appreciate that the vertical shafts on all four wheels spin, whereas only the shafts on the front wheels on the old vacuum rotated. Now I can easily move the vacuum sideways, making it easier to "park" in the garage and maneuver into tight places. My only design concern is that the new vacuum does not have a diffuser for the exhaust. The old one did, so I took used the old diffuser attachment on the new vacuum. Not a big deal but the exhaust stream, when undiffused, blasts anything in it's path. Must be careful that it is not stirring up dust or material that you are trying to vacuum up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used to vacuum my dusty garage. It worked excellent and the two gratis bags were a super help. The accessories all work well. Used the vac to clean out my dusty garage. Did a super job and happy to have the gratis bags too. A tool I'm glad to add to my home, well worth my money spent. Recommend this vac for home or commercial use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome aproduct One of the best investments I've made since buying my new house which needs a lot of work done. Just got done scraping the ceiling from popcorn ceiling which I used the vac to suck as I scraped. Also easy to use with my sander since I had to re-tape and mud the ceilings. The hose attaches right to the vac. Suction is very strong and made all the mess go away in a short time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! This wet/dry vac is amazing. The suction is incredible. The attachments are many and to top it off it has a detachable blower with attachments. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WELL DESIGNED, LIGHT WEIGHT, DURABLE I haven't had time to use the vac much, yet. I REALLY LIKE the detachable blower for quickly blowing leaf debris, etc., off our deck. The larger diameter hose as well as it’s kink resistant design on the vacuum should keep the hose from getting clogged. At some point I think I will purchase the optional longer hose for the vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the 16 gal capacity. Motor blower is easily removable. Great suction power. I’d but this product all over again if it’d break during many hours of use. Very sturdy and durable

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Accessories carrier needs to be redesigned! Very poor accessories stick out in the way. So far after one week it work excellent! Other than design flaw with accessories carrier it is a very well designed and operating shop vacuum! Happy overall!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I had this vac for years till the motor went. So bought the same one thinking that all the attachments would work.well nothing was interchangeable.
