I purchase this one as a replacement to my old Sears 6 gal shop vac. After 27 years of use it needed a motor. I think I got my money's worth. This unit does not have a large foot print and as many reviewers have mentioned before the size of the tank being vertical makes it easy to pull around a crowed shop, easy to park and does not tip over. Power is 3x greater than my old unit with 20% of the noise level. Cleaing cars and minivans is a snap. The hose size is a little strange but I have found some attachments that fit in nicely just by changing the hose with a longer crush proof unit. Thanks Sears for making a great product. Now if I can only figure out what replacement filters i can use.....

Have been waiting for this to go on sale - and it did for Father's Day. Great performance and fairly quiet for a shop vac. Sleek high profile is easy to move about.

I purchase this stylish looking, stainless steel housing unit to replacement my old shop vac. The assembly was a breeze and it comes with all the standard attachments and the filter. The suction is great and it is surprisingly quiet for 4HP motor. I am using the unit as a blower as well to clean my driveway and patio. So far I am very pleased with its performance and its design. The price was great after using my reward points and the coupon.
well, it's a vacuum, it's supposed to suck. other shortly owned vacuums have had the problem of not sucking and i must say THIS SUCKS! AWESOME buy, highly recommended.

I had already decided on the brand of vacuum cleaner I wanted when I went in my neighborhood Sears store. As I looked over the selections, just double checking my thinking, I came across the "shop vac" as my husband always called his, but this one was pretty. It was a shiny, smaller volume version of the "beast in the basement." I thought to myself (who knows, I may have said it out loud). This thing is a workhorse. I took it back to my smaller "move in ready" apartment and put it together in 5 easy steps. I can reach every height and crevice without being a contortionist, the intake is strong so I don't have to "re-do" patches of floor and carpet over and over again to pick up everything, and it fits in its own little corner of my kitchen, completely out of the way until I need it. This item is affordable and highly functional. I am so glad I did not purchase the more expensive item I had planned to purchase.
the stainless steel housing is very sharp as well. The initial assembly was simple and the directions were easy to read and understand. Convenient size - includes a washable, reusable filter and the all the standard attachments. I like the stainless steel tub.
Our old shop vac, I had for over 15 years died on us. I purchased this one mainly because I got a good deal. The vac was on sale and I had two $5 egiftcards, $4 of my rewards points and a 15% off coupon. I like the vac it is larger than my old one and more hp. However I do not like the hose & attachment storage, not very well designed, you knock the attachments off trying to get the hose off, so I just leave the hose attached.
This is the best small wet vac I have ever owned easy to roll around great handle on top for when it needs to be lifted good suction, and very stylish with it's stainless finish,you will not be disappointed with this one !!!
