The perfect jobsite accessory, it’s light enough to run from corner to corner fast, while packing enough punch to pull up moisture matted sawdust, baked-on dirt and even loose ball bearings. And if the job calls for sucking up water after a flood or plumbing job gone wrong, no worries, this vac is ready to get it clean and done.

Featuring a pair of extensions, a long flexible hose and three heads to choose from, whether you’re cleaning out the car trunk, prepping a boat for summer or blasting leaves from a garden path, you’re equipped to get it done right. Ready for anything, the Craftsman wet/dry vac features a forgiving polypropylene build that stands up to bumps, kicks and dings and an insulated 20 foot cord that’s ready to stretch across jobsite or driveway, giving you the reach you need without switching outlets. A solid addition to any tool kit, this vac packs power, portability and a rugged design you can count on to deliver when you need it. Toss it in your truck, roll it into you shop and get the job done right, with a tool you can trust.

Excellent vac
I purchased this wet/dry vac during a Sears craftsman club sale. Paid like $75 for it. I really don't use it for wet service. I use it to clean up my woodshop, catch cuttings from various saws, clean up the patio, etc. I love it. It has plenty of suction, even sucking up small rocks, screws, etc. One recommendation: When you buy it, get a second filter. Then when you have to empty the vac, install the new clean filter and then use the vac to suck clean the old filter. From this point forward, you just alternate filters using the vac to clean up the one that just came out of the machine. Makes cleanup a snap and eliminated the dust problem when you have to bang the dirty filter on something to get it clean.

The latches that hold the power head to the canister are plastic & easily broken. Mine arrived with one broken. When trying to separate the power head & canister the latches don't release properly adding to breakage problem.

Craftsmen Shop Vacuum, best we have ever owned..

This vacuum really does a great job... We are not surprised as our old Craftsmen Shop Vac lasted over 18 years, and we used it a lot in our garage, shed, etc.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

no idea what this means

I have had 4 different Sears vacs over the years. They always have great power, and there wet feature is always great. One year they came out with a variable speed feature on the motor, which worked well for me in the shop. About the second model, I realized how great the blowing feature was, and then loved the idea that they then improved the clasp that holds the nozzle to the vac so you can pull it without the nozzle coming out. I was very dismayed that, in this newest model, they cheapened that clasp, and it now comes apart very easily. This is very annoying, and I think the person responsible for this should be fired. I would explain this to anyone interested in buying one.

Great bang for the buck, especially on sale.

We purchased this unit to replace a 16 gallon 6.5 hp Craftsman we've had for 10 years and just recently died. This one is a little bit weaker in suction but it is also .5 hp less. For whomever said there is no bag available for this unit, you are mistaken. The dry debris bag is Craftsman part #17895 but the bag from our other craftsman, Part #17893 also works. It just doesn't come with one. They are about $11 for a 3 pack. I think it's a great value and you can't go wrong with Cratftsman reliability.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
