Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Much better that my old competitor's product When my previous shop vacuum burned up, I had to get a replacement quickly. Assembly was quick, and I noticed that no mention was made of installing a bag. A call to customer service confirmed that no bag is required. This will save considerable cash throught the life of the vacuum. The mobility of the machine is great. My previous vacuum would not roll well, and seemed to always be getting hung-up on things in the shop. This one rolls and turns easily when being pulled by the hose, as well as when being pushed by the handle. The vacuum force is superb. I use this vacuum in the shop and attach it to power tools for dust collection. When I am using it on my sliding compound miter saw, I can see the sawdust being sucked through the saw off of the work piece. I rated durability as good only because, although I have had to empty the vacuum once, I haven't had the machine long enough to determine its durability. There is no reason so far make durability suspect. Very happy with the purchase. March 27, 2014
