A great Vac- but bad hose included

I needed a Vacuum for dealing with leaves in the driveway among other things. A traditional leaf vac would not work with the crushed rock and other stuff where the leaves are located. The vacuum worked perfectly once I got the proper hose on it. The included hose is NOT what is shown in the picture - instead it is a smaller diameter hose with adaptors on each end to plug into the larger receptical on the vac and to all of the accessories. the smaller hose plugged frequently and less than 30 min into use it actually broke away from the adaptor end! I was about to bring the whole thing back for a refund when I thought to use the larger diameter hose from my older ShopVac - It plugged right in and worked perfectly and NEVER plugged. The larger diameter hose let the vacuum perform as I was expecting. I brought the smaller [broken] hose back to the local Sears and traded for the larger diameter hose that should of come with the unit. They found the 'better' hose actually cost less so I walked out with it and an $18 gift card to Sears. My Advice - get this - but immediately ditch the included smaller diameter hose at your local Sears and get the proper bigger diameter hose. Someone at sears made a big mistake when they chose to include a small whimpy (and more expensive) hose with this bigtime heavy duty vacuum. I bought the extended '2 year' warranty to total 3 years of coverage - they call it a 3 year warranty but fail to remember how the first year is already included with the product. Although if the unit requires replacement in the 1st year I might argue how I should get 2 since by their standards it is double warrantied. Sears employees never could do mathematics when it came to warranty coverage. They would have you believing that 1 year of warranty plus 3 additional years of coverage that you buy equals 3 total years - you may have to catch them on this as I did.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Go big, or go home!

The 6.5 peak horsepower motor is strong enough to suck the dog hairs stuck in the couch cushions and vehicle carpet and seats.  Haven't tried the 110 mph blowing port for anything yet, nor wet nozzle.  Like the storage bag and ease of rolling this monster around.  No job too big and the 10 foot long hose and 20 foot long cord provide freedom of movement.  The extension wands tend to fall off their storage slots and on mine, when operating with an attachment, it makes a loud air whistling noise.  The bag was a bit of a pain to install.  Got this one when on sale for $99.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great shop vac at a wonderful price.

This shop vac is an incredible deal.  Works wonderfully at cleaning a big water mess.  Had major hail storm with leaks all over and this worked wonderfully at cleaning up the mess.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I love the Vaccum!!!

I love this Shop Vaccum..It's so commercial....It's as nice as the pay ones at the car washes or like the ones they use at Eagle car wash....It's very powerful...I paid full price But did so because of the Wheels, the handle,the big holding tank and all of the attachments it comes with....and it has a very nice holding bag which holds all parts to it...I would strongly reccomend this one....I went top of the line so I won't be buying a new vac every year......

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The All Purpose Shop Vac

This was purchased on sale for $129.99 with the Craftsman club discount.  It is huge, and very easy to put together!!!  Assembly time was not even 20 minutes.  I chose this model for the wheels, power, and over all durability.  I liked the fact that all the accessories came with it, and there is a very nice black canvas bag that attaches to the unit to hold all the attachments.  The Craftsman 20 gallon wet/dry vac is a necessity for all home owners and will take on any chore, big or small with the greatest of ease.  Every attachment has it's place so you will not lose any of them which is a very nice feature.  The hose is easily wrapped around the unit so you are not tripping over it, or sticking out in the middle of the walk way.  The cord for the Craftsman 20 gallon wet/dry vac has it's own holder also, this makes wrapping the cord easy and again you are not tripping over it.  The cord itself is surprisingly long so you will not need to get out your extension cord for every use, a major plus.  This vacuum has 6.5 peak horse power so the power is unmatched.  Another great feature is that the hose attaches with a clip system so you are not pulling out the hose every-time you pull on it or move it, another major plus.  This is a great vacuum, personal or commercial use you will not have an issue.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
