I am pleased with this vacuum. Though noisy, which is to be expected, it has good suction. I'd buy it again if I needed second one or as a gift. It has one problem which I am working to resolve--because it's worth the effort... it is very top heavy and will not sit upright if pulled toward you. I'm planning to put it on casters with a weighted base. Otherwise it's great. if you get it you will like it but likely will also need a solution.
We have found this is just the right size and weight for occasional wet and dry clean up jobs. It really came in handy for the semi-annual cleaning out of our 2 car garage. My favorite part is it hangs on the garage wall with the bracket that comes with it. Not another thing on the floor.
