Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought with the auto detailing hose and brush kit Bought as a car detailing tool with the optional auto detailing premium hose and brush kit. Very powerful. Easy to maneuver around the car without tipping over. The premium auto detailing hose is very flexible and long enough to extend throughout the suv, making it very easy to clean the entire car quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value My expectations might be unrealistic so don't NOT purchase this because I didn't give it a perfect rating. My biggest critique is the hose and attachments never really feel as the they are securely attached no matter how hard I press the connections together. But seriously, it's a great machine, a very good value and I purchased the optional auto interior attachments which I will say has the best skinny wand ever!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good More compact than my other vac , maneuvers and operates well. Only wish Ridged would come out with a better hose , I find it too stiff .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from loss of suction Check the filter and shake clean, powerful vac and very durable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Wet/Dry Vac I bought this wondering if it would perform as stated. I have used it only a couple of times and think highly of this product. It will be easy to get used to the powerful suction action of the vac. The back seat of my car that carries young grand daughters and grand son, looks almost brand new! That was a nice surprise. Cookie crumbs, smashed Doritos, and other assorted messes from the "not my fault, I didn't drop stuff everywhere, Nana. It was somebody else." I will add about the durability later with additional use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shop vac I have owned I flip houses for a living. This vac is the best I have ever owned. The cord is super long. A problem with most vacs. You can take the filter off to clean and reinstall without taking of or unscrewing any parts. No loss of little pieces that way. Great suction. Highly recommend. Too many good features to go over, just get it.

Did I get a dud?

I have had this unit for a very short time with light use......partly because I cant get to suck anything. I purchased to suck up water from when my washer leaked and it picked up nothing.....also when trying to suck up dry materials. it wouldn't even pick up a penny off the floor...Am I doing something wrong? When I remove the hose the suction is very strong...but when the hose is attached the suction is very poor...
Asked by: JenniferCordova
Sounds like you've got something blocking the hose. If you attach the hose and the motor changes to a higher pitched sound you've got a blocked hose.

Seeing as there is no foam filter with this unit, will it damage the vacuum to remove the filter for vacuuming up liquid?

Asked by: Timj
Absolutely! There must be a foam filter on the unit when vacuuming up liquids to prevent debris from getting in to the impeller.

replacement / different filters

it seems like all the filters you sell are for the larger vacs, are there any filters available to purchase for this vacuum if we need to replace the stock one or want a different filter? thanks

How often do I need to change the filter?

I have been cleaning out the ducs in my house and the one I got with the machine today already looks very dirty.
Asked by: bama97202
not sure, I use the bags for dry pick up only and the filter stays clean. You can feel the bag to see if getting full. For filter, suggest once a year if you use it to clean air ducts only...doesn't sound like you use it a lot. filters can last a long time and look like they are very dirty. You can take the filter off and tap it inside a garbage bag and run fingers over the filter to get some dirt, dust cobwebs off.

How do you clean the power head

and after removing the filler I noticed that a good amount of dust collects around the filler . I believe this happens when a bag is not used. In which I plan to do. I'm new to the product this will be my first time using it, being so Ied like to clean it thoroughly, for I'll be using inside my house.
Asked by: Donarp
Unless you are using it as a wet vac make sure to use a clean filter that is properly installed, (it's simple), and if need be wipe down the motor housing with a damp, not wet, cloth with the unit unplugged.
