Product Description

More Suction Power than Shop-Vac and Ridgid*

This Craftsman XSP 12 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac offers innovative cleaning power technology designed to tackle the toughest cleanup projects at the jobsite, shop, garage or home.  Vacuuming wood chunks, metal shards, nails or sawdust in the shop, clearing drywall chunks, broken glass and screws at the job site, liquid pickup in a flooded basement and lastly removing leaves and other debris from gutters (gutter kit sold seperately) are just a few of the projects XSP can handle.  Innovative top-tray storage allows you to conveniently store items such as mechanics tools, power drills, screws or necessities on top of the vacuum so they are easily accessible when needed.  On-board hose, accessory and power cord organizers eliminates unneeded hassle and reduces overall storage space. Equipped with an extra-large drain, it quickly empties the tank of liquids.  An over 27 Foot cleaning reach (7’ Hose, 20’ Power Cord + Extension Wands) allows you to reach larger areas without unplugging the unit.  The 2-1/2” diameter secure fit hose system keeps the hose in place during use.  Heavy duty 360° swivel casters offer enhanced mobility on most surfaces, integrated ergonomic top handle provides comfort and easy transport.  Quickly control the power with the large dust sealed on/off switch.

The Craftsman XSP 12 Gallon 5.5 Peak HP Wet/Dry Vac also quickly converts to a blower.  Cleaning up at a messy jobsite, blasting dirt from the shop floor or fall leaves off the driveway can be done in a snap. It also includes a 9 Pc accessory set for nearly any situation.

  • Large 12 Gallon collection tank with extra-large quick empty liquid drain
  • Powerful 5.5 peak HP motor makes short work of jobs

Has good suction
This shop vac has very good suction but the fact that it is half the weight of the 20 yr old sears that just quit worries me on the quality. It has a 11.8 amp motor which if you know anything about electric motors is a true 1.9 hp which is good.. I don't know why there is not a law against the peak hp ratings on vacs and air compressors. It means nothing. Always look at the amps. It takes 746 watts to make one hp. ie 1 A X 120 V = 120 watts.

Good suction cheap plastic & handles
I was very excited to pull this vac out of the box and give it the quick assembly it requires. My excitement quickly diminished when I noticed right away that the red plastic tub was not as strong as I anticipated. After closer inspection, I also realized that the locking handles are the cheapest looking and lowest quality locking handles they can possibly get away with. Unfortunately, profit is priority for most corporations and Sears is obviously more interested in cutting corners than making an all around quality product. The stainless steal shop vac has much higher quality locking handles, but it's tub is too small and it has a small hose diameter. As a result, I know they can have good quality handles made by the Chinese. This larger line of vacs have to get a handle on their handles and thin plastic. Additionally, the locking handles don't even hold the lid down tight! There is a space for a seal on the lid but there is no rubber/plastic seal included and as a result the poor quality handle hold the lid loosely to the base. I am using a bungy cord to help keep the lid down tight to prevent any dust from coming out and to hopefully make the cheap handles last longer. So now I have a nice new shop vac with a bungy on it, what a joke! I gave it 3 stars (I am being generous) because it seems to suck well, have useful pieces, and it blows okay (good for light dusk/dirt but it's not going to move leaves). In summary it sucks well, blows okay but the plastic and handle quality truly sucks and blows!

Excellent Vac

I have had this vac for several months now and it is performing quite well. I hope it holds up as well as my previous Craftman that lasted over 20 years.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Product...lots of suction...

Sears did a great job with this Wet/Dry Vac. I have an old Craftsman still working fine, but just too big and cumbersome for my new small shop. This vac has the big plus of hose storage, is easily empties, a flat top to set small stuff on, incredible suction and because its lighter and smaller, I use it a lot more. Additionally, a major woodworking magazine rated this and the 16 gal. one at the top of the list in effectiveness and they were lower priced than many others in the test and shipping was free! If I'd improve on anything, I'd add a more flexible and soft cord like the Craftsman Circular Saw I have.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Suck the chrome off a trailer hitch!

This 'shop' vac works excellent, hadn't used it for water but for sheet rock dust and clean up it does better than expected and the 12 gallon size is easy to move and store.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
