This is one of the best products I have bought in some time for general househould cleaning. Every craftsman product I own, namely a 26 gallon compressor and a few small power tools, have worked ever since I have bought them without a problem. I bought this vacuum for my 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment mainly because areas under beds and dressers, as well as bathrooms, common areas, and the entire wood floor, can get very dusty if gone unchecked. I was tired of sweeping because sweeping never gets everything. A vacuum basically ensures your getting all the **** on the floor, or desk, in the area you put the wand into. Upon unboxing, I was very impressed. All the accessories were neatly packaged and that leads me to my first huge thumbs up for this product. It contains a great number of accessories. 2 tubes to extend the wand into basically a stand up vacuum application. As well, 2 different suction heads, 1 for dry and wet cleaning, and another general purpose head for whatever. Each piece has it's own little place on the vacuum, making everything clean and portable. With the entire vacuum loaded up, it is still extremely lightweight and moveable, carrying it no problem with one hand. The suction on this little 3 hp peak electric motor is impressive as well. It is DEFINITELY good enough for the task at hand, and in relation to the size of this vacuum in the first place. You'll be equally satisfied for sure. I have owned big 5 HP shop vacs and this thing does just as good of a job for how small it is. The design was well thought out and executed, and for $53 after tax, you really can't ask for a better dry/wet vacuum. Craftsman gives you a killer product with tons of accessories to bat, easy assembly (as well as unboxing), an awesome warranty, and a stupid good price point for this little gem, which I would easily say is right up there with the best ones in the catagory (all things considered).

get's the job done, perfect to squezz in thight spot's easy to operate powerfull engine that gives the strong vacuum sucktion need it to get the job done, good for stairs, car's, boat's etc..
We got this smaller-sized shop vac because (as senior citizens) it was getting harder and harder to lug the older, heavier vac around. This size worked out perfectly when we needed to drain our toilet for replacement. It's light-weight. Easy to maneuver (even without the wheels attached) - and was a great value for our dollars.
Bought this to clean my car because my son is in soccer and we have grass and dirt all the time. Works great for cleaning the car! I can't wait to use this for other things too!
Aside from its usual duties, I can recommend this to anyone who uses a vacuum hair-cutter (e.g. Flowbee or Robocut). It's truly hair-raising and will do a faster, more thorough job. P.S. "Horsepower" ratings for vacuums tend to be misleading. They should just use watts or amps instead of measuring the motor at its peak extreme draw. Using the formula P = IV (Watts = Amps x 120 volts) and converting watts to HP, you end up with about 2 HP of sustained power at the typical max draw of 12 amps.
I needed a compact wet-dry vacuum for cleaning the garage, cars, and saw dust from woodworking projects. I've also used the wet mode for unclogging my AC condensate drain line. It works well, but the HEPA filter folds are easily clogged with pet hair requiring cleaning the filter with my house vacuum. For most other use the filter can be cleaned by removing and tapping it on the floor. I'd much rather clean the HEPA filter than breathe dust that a simple paper filter would pass back into the air. No complaints!

When my basement flooded this product quickly helped clean it up. It came with a wet sieve and dry filter. It was very easy to setup and to use and the instructions were clear. Dumping and getting back to work was fast .
I bought this one week ago. this is exact what I am looking for. it has 6 gallon large tank. powerful 3 HP motor. wheel at the base to easy move around the garage and house.flexible hose is little shorter than I was wanted. another drawback is it doesn't have drain plug you have to remove the top to dispense the waste.
Awesome!!! Great price, we just bought our first house and use for just about everything we have 11 month old and everything ends up on the floor right now we use it for both indoor and outdoors. Has lots of power.... GreAt purchase very happy!
