It's small (about a cubic foot) and easy to store. It's lightweight (about 4 pounds) and easy to hold in one hand while using (or run a belt through the handle and hang it from your shoulder). It's a little noisy but not too bad. The hose is only 4 feet but it fits the accessories from my Eureka upright including the 3 foot nesting wand. Using that I can reach my HVAC return vents (9 feet above the ground) without a ladder. The only two design changes I would like to see would be a smooth rounded handle and a shortening of the power cord from 6 feet to 6 inches. At 6 feet there are very few instances where you will not need an extension cord. If it were six inches it wouldn't be in the way when you store it. I'll probably make both modifications myself.

Great portable vacuum
Fantastic little vacuum. Bought this so I wouldn't have to lug out the house vacuum cleaner outside into the driveway and worry about ruining it with rocks,etc.. This little vacuum cleaner is the boss. Pick up anything and everything. One gallon is the perfect size for using to clean the cars. Light enough for my wife to use when cleaning out her car also. My only concern is finding replacement filters for it. I haven't seen any for sale for one gallon units. Everything else except one gallon. So far I have just been removing it and cleaning it with a brush.
I have this vacuum. The 1-1/2 gal reusable filter for the shop vac will just fine. You can use the plastic ring over again. You can wash the foam pre filter over and over as well as the paper ones if you get in a bind. Thatâs what reusable means in the description. I think we all need to realize that this item is not a portable fusion reactor and not expect it find the elusive Boson particles ð
Does the job.
Inexpensive, good quality and is quiet compared to others I have had. I love the included mounting bracket. I hung it above my shop bench with the included wall screws and inserts (see pic) It easily slides upward out of the bracket if you wish to use it in other places. The switch faces outward if mounted on a wall. From the literature it says 4 HP. This is incorrect..it is closer to 1 HP. It draws 5 amps so do the calculation. I found no problem cleaning my bench and car mats. 2 hose end attachments come with the unit which should match most pick up applications. It is wet or dry so if wet you remove the paper filter and use the foam.
Disposable Shop Vac
Used this for small cleanup jobs around the house, like removing dust from radiator coils. I loves the convenience of a smaller unit, but sadly after 3-4 uses it gave off a really bad burning smell. After trying DIY fixes I still had the smell. Threw it away. Also, the filters for this size are rarely in-stock at Walmart.
Item broke during first use
Broke during the first use. The vacuum powered off and I was but able to turn it back on. I tried multiple power outlets just to make sure it wasn't a problem with my electrical outlet but after reading the reviews, I realize it's a common problem. Packed it up and returning to a local Walmart . The item also has a shorter cord than desired.
