Rated 5 out of 5 by from good suction, needs improvement Nice sturdy vac with good suction. If you buy extra tools the storage options are kind of antique . Needs a better way to store extra tools instead of on the sides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacing a 12 gal shop vac Our old 12 gal. Ridgid shop vac's motor overheated and stopped. So, I am trying this smaller model. I am disappointed in it's lack of power, but it was less expensive. It seems like it should have more attachment, only one does not cut it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, great wet/dry vac Very happy with this unit. I have used it to clean out gutters on my house, setting it up on a ladder. It is light enough to set up well, and heavy duty enough to really pick up the dirt. Truthfully - it fell from the ladder twice - my own fault - and there was no impact to the unit or its operation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Appears to Perform Well It's a bit premature to rate this Vac. I've used it on sawdust and it performed very well. Recommended to clean the filter after fine dust pickup. I've also vacuumed my car as well without issues. Seems to have strong suction power. My only disappointment is that it did not come with some needed accessories. So far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised This vac works as advertised. Simple to use and small enough to move around easily.

I can't seem to get the extension wand to connect to the hose. Is there a trick to this? It just doesn't seem to fit right.

Asked by: PaulW

What is the filter mesh size?

What is the smallest particles that it will filter out? Dust, pollen, mold?
Asked by: Scotster
Vacuum comes with a single pleat paper filter VF4000 for large dirt/sawdust size. You can purchase a 3 layer filter VF5000 for dust/drywall dust or a 5 layer HEPA filter VF6000 for pet dander/mold/pollen. The VF7000 is a foam filter for use during wet vacuuming.
