best replacement shop vac out there

I purchase this one as a replacement to my old Sears 6 gal shop vac.  After 27 years of use it needed a motor.  I think I got my money's worth.  This unit does not have a large foot print and as many reviewers have mentioned before the size of the tank being vertical makes it easy to pull around a crowed shop, easy to park and does not tip over.  Power is 3x greater than my old unit with 20% of the noise level. Cleaing cars and minivans is a snap.  The hose size is a little strange but I have found some attachments that fit in nicely just by changing the hose with a longer crush proof unit.  Thanks Sears for making a great product.  Now if I can only figure out what replacement filters i can use.....

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

Well built stainless steel Wet/Dry Vac.

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!

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.

Good suction, not noisy, stylish?

I purchase this stylish looking, stainless steel housing unit to replacement my old shop vac. The assembly was a breeze and it comes with all the standard attachments and the filter. The suction is great and it is surprisingly quiet for 4HP motor. I am using the unit as a blower as well to clean my driveway and patio. So far I am very pleased with its performance and its design. The price was great after using my reward points and the coupon.

The perfect household appliance

I had already decided on the brand of vacuum cleaner I wanted when I went in my neighborhood Sears store. As I looked over the selections, just double checking my thinking, I came across the "shop vac" as my husband always called his, but this one was pretty. It was a shiny, smaller volume version of the "beast in the basement." I thought to myself (who knows, I may have said it out loud). This thing is a workhorse. I took it back to my smaller "move in ready" apartment and put it together in 5 easy steps. I can reach every height and crevice without being a contortionist, the intake is strong so I don't have to "re-do" patches of floor and carpet over and over again to pick up everything, and it fits in its own little corner of my kitchen, completely out of the way until I need it. This item is affordable and highly functional. I am so glad I did not purchase the more expensive item I had planned to purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

good deal

Our old shop vac, I had for over 15 years died on us. I purchased this one mainly because I got a good deal. The vac was on sale and I had two $5 egiftcards, $4 of my rewards points and a 15% off coupon. I like the vac it is larger than my old one and more hp. However I do not like the hose & attachment storage, not very well designed, you knock the attachments off trying to get the hose off, so I just leave the hose attached.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

High Quality Construction

This vacuum is very well built, the stainless steel housing is very sharp as well. The initial assembly was simple and the directions were easy to read and understand. My favorite part is the included hose wrap as I really dislike clutter. The only negative is that the suction power is a tad less than I expected. Otherwise I hope to use this for a long time.
