A must for any 2 1/2" Shop Vacuum

The Craftsman  2 1/2" Muffler/Diffuser is a must for any shop vacuum with a 2 1/2" exhaust/blower port.  It quiets the noise of the vac a bit.  ( My old ears really can't tell much of a difference),  What it really does though is to keep the blower port from blasting a giant jet of air out of the vac.  Instead it directs the air to many different directions, thus stopping the distructive force of the rea air jet.  This way it is not like having an uncontrolled leaf blower following you around as you are vacuuming the shop floor.  I am giving it four stars as it really isn't much of a muffler, the noise level is still obnoxious. If I could I would rate it 4 1/2 stars.

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..

LOVE IT!

I didn't even know this product existed until I was strolling through my local Sears. This little item has changed my opinion of high powered shop vacs for ever. Quiets and diffuses the air flow from the exhaust, I highly recommend

It does make a difference

An often overlooked accessory, The propaganda states - "Noise reduction of up to 25%."  Who knows, I don't own or feel like borrowing a Digital Sound Meter. I do know that there is a noticeable reduction is the noise level when it is in use versus not in use.

You may not care either way, those in the general area while your using the vac will thank you.  

An additional benefit you'll notice is that since it is inserted into the exhaust port the velocity of the exhaust is greatly reduced. It is well worth the $$'s. 

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works Great!!,

It really quiets the noise from the vac and eliminates the blowing from the exhaust that can knock things over and blow papers everywhere. I wish I had bought one sooner.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
