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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice sturdy machine with strong vacuum It took me about 20 or 30 minutes to assemble the machine. The instructions for assembly could be better but I was able to figure out what to do. The vacuum is the strongest of any vacuum cleaner I've ever used. It actually sucks fast to rugs so you need to be a little careful how you use it. The standard hose that comes with the machine is a bit short and rather plasticy for my purposes so I plan to get a longer hose at some point. Other than that it seems like a great machine that I hope will last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed with overall use of this unit. I am doing some renovations in my house and the house vac doesn't cut it (no power & has bags), and my shop vac is very large and cumbersome so I bought this unit because of its size, ease to get around, light weight. Had excellent reviews and warrantee. It has very good suction. Comes with all the necessary attachments. Very happy with this purchase.
