Product Description

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.

  • Larger 16 Gallon collection tank with extra-large quick empty liquid drain

Best Craftsman Vac
I just purchased this unit to replace an older Craftsman vac that died. This vac is extremely quiet and very powerful. The hose is very flexible and easy to store onboard the vac. This vac uses all of the older Craftsman filters and even uses filter bags. Tons of storage and is very easy to haul around. Very sturdy. Best Craftsman vac I have ever owned.

Not that good
The Good: -A great deal of power. -Large capacity. The Bad: -Very LOUD, need earplugs to prevent hearing damage. -16 Gal. NOT suitable for use with a sanding adapter hose - The airflow is too great to downsize to a smaller hose to fit an orbital sander. The motor will strain causing a burning smell and possibly ruin the motor. Get a smaller size vacuum if you plan to use for sanding. -Maximum airflow needed at all times to prevent motor damage. -Exhaust airflow points to the side causing whatever you are vacuuming to blow away. Not suitable for dusty environments.

Heavy Duty Vacuum

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great for medium/heavy duty house repairs

We bought this shop vac for work we were doing in a newly purchased house. We used this to vacuum out clogged air vents and dust-filled ducts from the previous owners, as well as basic cleanup of sheetrock debris, nails, and other stuff left behind. Worked like a charm and the suction pressure was more than sufficient.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Go for extra 6.5 HP

Shopped the Rigid, Shop-vac and Craftsman XSP wet/ dry vacuums online. Read better reviews about Craftsman and then really tried to hone in on the right size. Online couldn't make the right decisions so went to the Sears store and realized the 6.5 HP had the better benefits. I didn't need the leaf blower version of the vac so really honed down on the 16 vs 20 gallon Craftsman XSP 6.5 Peak HP. THE 20 GALLON LOOKED LITTLE BIG, so decided for the 16. You get all the qualities of 20 in the 16, just missing out on volume that bucket will hold. I ended up also purchasing the 2-1/2" car mat attachment nozzle. First try with the vacuum was really quiet, lots of suction (compare to the best suction at a self car wash) and the cord and hose were comfortably long. Would I buy the 20 gallon now? No, only if needed to suck up 20 gallons of wet. Very satisfied with the 16. The box says has a 1 year warranty, I bought a 3 year package for extra $15.99.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
