The best vacuum I could find!
I love my new 4 HP vacuum. As a DIU guy, I'm always working on projects in my shop. My 5 HP, 12 gallon Shop Vac finally died. It performed well enough but was very noisy, physically quite large (with the tool storage container on the back), the 2 1/2 inch hose was clumsy (especially when cleaning out vehicles), and when I pulled it by the hose, never seemed to follow me in a straight line. My new Craftsman is significantly quieter. It has fixed larger diameter wheels in back and nicer quality casters in front, so it tracks behind me appropriately and pulls easily. Tool storage is well designed and doesn't increase the foot print of the vac. The design of the latches which hold the power unit to the tank are superb - secure and very easy to use. It came with 1 7/8 inch diameter hose which, for all around home owner use, is an excellent compromise. Finally, for all but contractor use, 8 gallons is optimum. It's a no joke good size, but not significantly larger than a 4 to 6 g

Vacuum good, but you cannot replace filters. It is a current model, no filters available. DON'T BUY THIS ITEM.

great vacuum

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

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Wet pick-up terrible on tile floors

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.

Great little vac for the price

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Power, mobility, and reach

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

Quiet, Clean Look

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Worst engineered vac I've owned

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

Nice small vac

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Has non-standard size 1-7/8 inch hose/wands

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 would recommend this product to a friend.
