Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 175 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quick and Easy I haven't used this much but when I did I was surprised by the ease and power the machine has. Didn't know it could also be used as a blower. Glad to have this in my house with a dog and winter messes tracking in. I'm redoing a basement and this takes care of plaster, nails, all sorts of debris. April 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Wet/Dry Vac! Love the options of this vacuum, Suction, or blowing, wet, or dry! Nice power and very light weight! nice long hose. Only complaints, I do wish it had a cord wrap. April 6, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to put together and nice to use. Easy to put together and nice to use. Should have bought a bigger one, but could not. I had a 12 gal. before and it was great until it got trashed in a hurricane. April 3, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by ok vacuum the components from the hose to the attachment is cheap you only get one attachment the handle to grab buy is weak and could break under a heavy load inside the canister the cord is too short seems to have been thrown together wish the hose was a bigger diameter that's my own fault for not looking at it more carefully when I bought it seems to have good performance really went cheap on not giving you all the good little attachments March 31, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by I am very disappointed with this vacuum. It is noisier than my last one. The lid does not seat tightly and allows dust to leak out. I am very disappointed with this vacuum. It is noisier than my last one. The lid does not seat tightly and allows dust to leak out. The push-on filter is harder to remove and install. I prefer the older style with a screw-on retainer. I am not able to find your terms and conditions. March 26, 2015

I have been unable to find any information elsewhere. I have this model and it has been great this past year but recently every time I turn on the vacuum, it sucks (like it's supposed to) and it blows air from the blowing port. How can I fix this problem so only one of these features works at a time (separately)?

Answer: 
-We would like to let you know that there is no way to stop the blowing feature of the vac because the vac is design to blow air at same time while you are vacuuming. Air will be drawn into the vacuum through the suction port and exit through the blower port. The debris that has been picked up by the vacuum should be captured by the filter. With the correct filter properly installed, only clean air would be exiting the exhaust.
We hope this information helps. Have a great day!

Thank you

Answer: 
There is nothing wrong with your blowing feature. in order for the motor to be able to create suction, it has to both intake air and exhaust air. As with any vac you have ever owner, there is always an exhaust, the blower is the exhaust.

Just the same as when you remove the top to use just the blower, there is an intake ontop of the motor which if you put your hand there, you will feel the suction.

Your vac is functioning as it should. Happy cleaning.

Answer: 
All vacuums of this type take in air though one inlet (where the hose is normally connected), run it into the can through the filter and then expel it through the outlet (the blowing port). If I understand your question correctly, your vac is working as it should. Strictly speaking, it is air in, air out,

Answer: 
The motor must exhaust air from the unit. Home Depot sells a "diffuser" for $12 it just attaches to the the exhaust port an helps out tremendously. Good luck

Answer: 
Like all vacuums, the blower motor, which creates vacuum, must have a way to remove the air from the canister in order to pick-up material. The "exhaust" port on your vacuum, in the last few years, has been engineered to be used as a "blower" when the suction hose is attached. The filter, we use the micron filter that is available, must be installed and will produce almost perfectly clean air to push item or dirt across any surface. So the blowing out of air at the exhaust port is normal. If it's not blowing strongly, the filter is in need of replacement or cleaning. Most filters can be washed and dried and reused several times. You must always be aware of the direction of the discharge air in order to prevent make a larger "mess" to clean up.

Answer: 
You cannot. It is supposed to have an 'exhaust'. Any motor designed to blow or suck will do both at the same time. Stopping or blocking one will disable the other.
