      Product Description

      2-1/2-In. Muffler/Diffuser Tackles Two Annoyances At Once

      For those who love the power of a wet-dry vacuum but hate the noise and blow back, this Craftsman 2.5 inch muffler diffuser is just the thing. There will be no more blasts of air jetting out of the vacuum's exhaust to blow dust around in one area just as another is cleaned. This handy little add-on ensures that you won't create a mess in one area as you clean up another.

      The 2-1/2 inch muffler/diffuser curbs the noise problem, too. It installs quickly and easily - simply insert it into any vacuum with a 2.5-inch exhaust port. At less than a quarter pound in weight, it won't add bulk, keeping the vacuum as easy as ever to maneuver.

      • This Craftsman 2.5 inch muffler diffuser is just the thing for those who need the power of a shop vac but want to avoid noise and blow back
      • The muffler helps curb the massive flow of air that can exit shop vacs and end of creating more mess as quickly as another one is cleaned up
      • The part fits any Craftsman wet/dry vac with a 2.5-inch diameter exhaust port
      • The muffler is light weight, at only 0.17 pounds
      • It installs with a twist and removes just as easily

      Must have
      This doesn't help too much with sound from my experience, but it is amazing for reducing the blower effect. When cleaning up my show the blower effect often pushed around dust that was behind me, meaning that I had to hit some areas twice. This fixes that problem.

      Diffuser only.

      This is supposed to be a muffler, but it made absolutely zero difference in the loudness, pitch, or sound of my vacuum. I returned it.

      Diffuser

      Did the trick with lowering the noise and stopping dust from existing the vacuum.

      Shop Vac Muffler

      This muffler works as expected. My 12gal shop vac is still loud, but not a shrill.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Not a great product

      I thought that this was a great idea when I purchased it. However, it is advertised as being a muffler and the noise reduction, which has always been an issue at our house, is minimal if anything at all. I can't hear any difference with or without it on the machine and that's my wife's vote also. The only thing it seems to do is slow the exhaust air flow down slightly.

      Very disappointed in this product. I don't have a decibel meter but my ears can not discerned any appreciable difference in sound reduction. Save your money..
