The vacuum is the right size with on board storage. Sears not only had a good price but shipped it to my home for free. The vacuum will pickup water or dirt and trash in your car, workshop, an in your home. The stainless steel skin looks great and can be stored in your home within a little space. My wife can take it out of pantry and vacuum some spills that occur in the kitchen such as flour. The vacuum it very versatile in the home or in your workshop. I recommend this vacuum to anyone. Also you can't beat sears on this one
Bought this vac to replace my 20 year old Dirt Devil shop vac. It's great for dry pick-up and for that reason only that I would recommend to a friend. But, for wet use it is terrible on ceramic tile and grout. It can't come close to a 20 year old wet/dry vac when it comes to pulling water out of grout lines and that is what I need from a wet/dry vac. Otherwise, I like everything about this vac, especially the larger diameter hose.

I have owned one for a year now and really like this little shop vac. It replaced a much bigger one but does the same job and takes up less space. It has lots of places to store attachments, plenty of suction and a filter that is pretty easy to access for cleaning. I have not used it as a wet vac yet so can't really speak to that. I would recommend R2D2 (as my granddaughter calls it) to anyone looking for a good quality medium sized shop vac.
Needed a shop vac to handle the tasks of cleaning up sawdust, screws, leaves and minor spills that take place in the garage, kitchen, and driveway. This does it all! Plenty of power, looks great, rolls great, and has a very long hose and attachments to reach far!

I received my purchase in less time than scheduled. I like the stainless steel finish. I've been using it in my shop to vacuum, and it meets my expectations. Great tool!
This was everything I expected except a brush attachment. The vac. is super quiet by comparison to other shop vacs. that I have. Nice supple hose is nice to not fight like some stiffer ones. I bought this one for the fixed rear wheels so I can control it following me vs. the free wheel casters that go anywhere but where you want. Compact, only takes the space the canister needs. Clever side hooks store all tools as well as hose and cord in user friendly way. Only way it could be improved is by adding a cord rewind like on the vacs of the old days.
1. top does not seal to canister 2. power cord short 3. no power 4. had to order additional hose and accessories to make functional 5. rear wheels do not turn, therefore machine falls over Whoever engineered this product needs to find a new career. Worst product I have ever seen with Craftsman logo. I own three additional Craftsman Wet/Dry Vacs (1 in the shop, the other 2 stored at both my sons homes for some reason, lol) that are very good products. I bought this smaller one for the garage. VERY DISSATISFIED
It is more compact than expected. My 12 gal xsp vac looks huge next to it. Sleek looking. Easy moving around. A lot of suction. The 1-7/8" hose is not causing any problem with a tool adapter attached.

This worked very well pulling water out of a carpet. Discovered, however, when I wanted to use it with leaf attachment that there is no adapter for a 1-7/8 inch part. It's a non-standard size. Think about this if you want to use different attachments. You may not be able to & who needs 2 shop/vacs? If I hadn't tossed the box, back this would go. Would give it 4-1/2 stars if it hadn't been for this.
I wanted a wet/dry vac that was not too big; not too small. this one is perfect. Great suction; plenty of power/capacity. I especially like the stainless steel look compared to the standard plastic canisters.
