More Suction Power than Shop-Vac and Ridgid*
This Craftsman XSP 16 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 16 Gallon 6.5 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.

In the market for a wet/dry vac. Look to the Craftsman brand first. The unit i purchased packs 6.5 hp and a large capacity. It worked great out of the box. I LOVE THIS VAC.
Exceeded my expectations for suction power and low noise. Easy to assemble. Like the wheels. Really did a great job on my car and boat carpeting. Saved me lots of time too.

Works very well with lots of suction power. I had a small Craftman Wet/Dry vac that's at least 20 years old (2 gal/1.5hp). It has no suction compared to this new vacuum. I used it first to clean my cloth dryer vent along with a Lent Eater. It sucked up all the lent dust that I cleaned from the ducts in my wall and attic. I have only had it for a couple of weeks but have also used it to vacuum a car interior and to help clean a garage. Worked very well.
This Craftsmans XSP 16 Gallon wet/dry vac is excellent. It has very strong suction and is relatively quiet compared to other large vacs. Would highly recommend it especially when its on sale, you cant beat the value.
