    This is a great vacuum for everything! I had another Shop Vac wet/dry vacuum that I bought in 1986 and it finally gave up and two weeks later I got this new one. It is ever bit as good as the old one and if it lasts as long as the old one, I'll be tickled pink! Great product, great price, a tribute to the SHOP VAC people.

    The machine works for not too much $$$. I had purchased it about 2 months ago for a project that I just started. It works better than my Craftsman 1.5 hp/ 2 gal. wet-dry vac. The hose was too narrow in my Craftsman, causing the hose to clog-up too easily. The unit from Walmart does not clog up very often, and the hose is very flexible, so I can easily unclog the hose by pressing on the outside of it. The only issues I have is that (1) it did not come equipped with a small nozzle, so I ended-up using the small nozzle from my Craftsman and (2) that I could not purchase via online and pick up the product at the store the same day (Walmart.com shipped it to the store of my choosing, but took about 5 days). I hope to have my project completed in a couple of months and I am glad that I bought the unit.

    Just my third Shop Vac in 23 years. This one has a blower feature the last one didn't have. My local Walmart doesn't carry this particular model, I took advantage of the 97 cent home delivery.

    Wife bought it for me for christmas last year. got it on sale and she was questioning it's value. Over the time I have had it, I have used it to clean up food messes after twin 2 year olds, and this weekend used it to empty the tank and bowl of a malfunctioning toilet (dont worry it was clean water). This thing has great capacity and pretty good power. Its awfully loud in an enclosed area, but does well otherwise.

    1. Buy a extension cord with it. 2. Find a very very very short person to use it on your floors. I have shag carpet it has ruined all my good vacuums. So I needed a cheap vacuum that did not have a brush roller. One that just sucks. O. K. For the money I think this is a great little vacuum. Now I have to hunt down where to get something to make it longer. My back is killing me from bending over to vacuum because they did not make the tubes long enough. Come on guys you could have added on the extra inches for pennies more!!!I could have written a review that would have said this vacuum is perfect.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I purchased this shop vac for one purpose, which was to clean up sheetrock dust from sanding mud. The unit had trouble picking this up for me because it was always clogged. I had to continually stop and shake out the filters for the unit to start working. If I had purchased it to perform light household or garage tasks I believe it would work perfect for that. The unit works good as a blower to get stuff out of the hard to vaccuum places. I also think if they included more attachments, such as a brush, I would have had better luck with my task.

    good unit for the price. No bags included with price of vac. You will need to buy bags to use on the inside of the vac to catch the dirt & dust.

    Pretty basic smallish shop vac which is just what I wanted. It pulls water from wet carpet. Simple assembly. Just one tool but I have extras. Worth the price.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I like the benefit of two useful tools in one. Vacuum and blower. I cannot get the hose to stay attached to the wand, I have to hold it together as I use it. Very annoying. It would be so nice to have a faster more convenient way to switch from dry to wet. My portable AC got my bedroom carpet wet and I thought about using the shop vac. To lazy to clean it out and use it to vacuum water. This model has a much better balance than others I've had. The wheel base seems better and it doesn't tip over as others have before. I like it. Wish attachments came with it. Like little round brush and crevice tool. But can't have everything I guess. Thanks

    • A. Yes. The hose will attach to two locations. One for vacuuming and one for blowing. These 'ports' are not labeled, so do yourself a favor and label them, so anyone in your family doesn't accidentally make a dry spill worse by having the hose in the blow port. Just test it against your hand so you know which port is which. Also, prior to blowing, empty the canister, to ensure that only air is being blown and nothing else. Hope this helps.
