Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a good job and is easy to use. This shop vac does a good job. The suction is strong enough to clean debris from around the outside of my house. The accessories are handy. I would have liked a longer cord. I can't comment on durability because I have only used the shop vac twice. The instructions do not describe the details of the warranty. If I have a problem do I have to ship it to the manufacturer at my cost?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good ideas, but room for improvement Storage for attachments is a really good idea, but should be expanded to cover cord and hose. Too noisy. Appears the motor has brushes. Why, in 2017, do we still have motors with BRUSHES? Secure hose attachment clips--really good idea. Wide hose diameter minimizes flow restriction, but at pickup point suction is not that strong. I'm now looking for an adapter so that I can attach old attachments from previous vacs. The filter attachment design is a good idea. Cleaning attachment is at an odd angle--no suction if you have to run it under something. Again, I need an adapter to use my old attachments, for more than one reason.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shop Vac My wife used my Ridgid 12 gal. shop vac on some carpet areas in our house and liked it so much that she asked for a smaller version that she could have for just the house. While the 6 gal. vac is less powerful than the 12 gal. vac, she likes the mobility of the 6 gal. vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Had an old model with a larger hose gave to family. Bought this and like it better. The hose is easier to get in and around a vehicle interior. A little less power , it seem like but works great for what I use it for .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This unit works great. This is a smaller unit than I wanted but still work great for small jobs and cleaning of our vehicles. Wish it came with more adapters.

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.
