Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far this product works Great. Durability check back in a year. I have only used this for a week. It has lived up to its revenue. It has a lot of power. We shall see how long it last. Normally I wear one out in a year. So far this has worked Great. I use it everyday in my job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s portable and powerful. Use it around the house, my garage shop, and car. Needed a quality vac that had to be portable. Everything fits in it and it’s powerful. Also use it when we clean up after an install. Clients really like that we clean up, also has room for ear protection, booties, and mask.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but powerful This shop vac is just the right size and easy to carry and pack with other tools for jobs away from shop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Vacuum because it all fits in one box easy to carry... Shop Vacs are noisy and this is no exception. But the feature of having attachments inside the box and the ease you can carry it around are outstanding! Good thinking "outside the box". Suction is decent and the cord is long enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful portable vac I’m pleased with the features, convenience of use, storage of included attachments and suction power of this model. I also like it has a lifetime warranty, I’m pleased with the durability of my larger RIIGID shop vac and my reason for purchasing this smaller unit for portability and way of use. It comes with a dust bag that replaces the wet/dry filter if needed. Very easy to clean. Unlatch the two side latched , pull the upper half out and dump the container. There is no drain plug on this unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice, portable and convenient vacuum. Complete setup is about a minute and you are ready to go. The only thing that could make this better I figure would be wheels. That isn’t a major sticking point though. It is light enough not to need them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought for portability I bought this for portability. I tied up my other shop vac for the cnc, festool for the other tools, and dust Extractor for the bigger tools. I needed something portable.

Can use this vacuum to clean a COLD pallet stove.

I am wondering if I can use this vacuum to clean my pellet stove when the ashes are totally cold. Do I need an additional filter or do they have a specific filter for cleaning ashes?
Asked by: arod
I think it would work well for cold ashes. I would suggest buying the filter bags rather than just using the internal pleated fine dust filter. This vac was originally intended for cleaning up drywall dust and would work well for laser printer toner or ashes I would think.

I would like to know which of your wet/dry vacuums have the Scroll Noise Reduction built in.

I already have two of the large vacuums, but am looking for a smaller portable with the Scroll Noise Reduction built in. It isn't always clear from the website which ones have it, so I would like to know for sure. Thank you
Asked by: brasilbob
These two answers to my original question make no sense. The description of this vacuum above clearly states under "Features" that this model has Scroll Noise Reduction. That is item #7. So, it would appear that this model does have the Scroll Noise Reduction feature. While waiting for an answer, I went ahead and ordered, and received, this vacuum. Based on the amount of noise it makes, or rather doesn't make, I would say that it does indeed have the Scroll Noise Reduction. It is relatively quiet for such a powerful vacuum. As I intend to use it in public places, that is important to me. I am rather disappointed in the inaccuracy of the previous answers, and am glad I didn't wait to make a purchasing decision based on their information.

Is it possible to order a replacement Superflex hose?

My Superflex hose has cracked and broken, and the replacement hoses are not flexible enough to fit in the tool storage compartment.
Asked by: snsmyth
My unit is new so mine has not cracked. That is a shame the replacement hose does not package into the side since to me that is one of the major advantageous of this unit.
