We needed a new shop vac and this one fit the bill perfectly. It's heavy duty but not bulky and is very easy to transport with the built in caddy. Works great!
We have only had this shop vac a few weeks but, so far, we are very impressed. It is well designed and quite powerful...and surprisinglyit is not terribly noisy. We like that it is a vacuum and a blower in one unit. As I said, the vacuum is very powerful and, at times is almost too powerful. When using it in the house, there are times when I would like to have the option to run it at half power. However, I'd rather it be too powerful than not powerful enough. One criticism of the ShopVac manufacturer: After this purchase, I went through a different retailer to purchase additional filters. A day or two later, I realized I had not ordered the filter I preferred (my fault) so through the other retailer I asked WorkShop to cancel the order so I could order the filter I should have ordered in the first place. ShopVac received my cancellation request and said the order had not shipped and that if their warehouse could stop the order it would and they would call me. They never called. I called them and was told that it would be the next day before they would know if they could stop the order. Another day or two went by and I was then notified that the order had shipped. It appears they had plenty of time to cancel the order but, for whatever reason, they did not. Not good PR..
