Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted Only used this for a few hours, so not sure about durability. Strong pick up power, big holding capacity. I bought a muffler for it, but I cannot get it to fit. Instructions could include more detail.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from top of the line suction good , I purchased the extra stainless steel wand , and attachments kit to make this the best , only things i don't like is the bags are 10 bucks a piece , ive been using it with a concrete grinder and it has collected about 15 lbs of concrete dust and the suction is still good , im sure this vac will last for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super duper vac! I just started using this vac for dryer vent cleaning and it works great! I can store all of my adaptors, tools and tape right in the accessory bag to keep them handy. It also looks very impressive to the customer as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think it’s a great product and has performed well since I purchased it. A great durable product that has handled the rigors of my line of work. It vacs up rocks, sand, and dirt from my excavations and dumping the debris is easy. This is a great product and I’ll purchase another in the future.
