Will this work in the home on carpet?

This question is from 12 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac

I'm over 65. Bought a $300 Sears joke of a vacuum. That is a lot of money when you're on a fixed income. They do not take vacuums back once they are used. I trusted that it would be a good Sears product.

The wand in itself is too heavy to basically carry around, the thing doesn't even roll on carpeting, which means I'm constantly dragging the weight of it behind me and pulling it around all the doorways.

If anybody has any ideas if this Home Depot vac will work in my home, please help! It looks like the wheels might roll pretty well. At my age, you don't need to bend to the floor to get the cord out either to plug it in either. What was Sears thinking?

The only good thing was the retractable cord.

Thanks in advance, for any help you can give me. I appreciate it.

Answer: 
Not sure why it's not featured, but it does a great job as a "fixed" blower. Note: it is not really intended to be used as a handheld blower (i.e. hose & motor stay attached to based) But, it deliveries a very strong straight blow.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 309 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great wet/dry vac This wet/dry vac is very powerful and works well. The only thing I would tell anyone is you need to put the wheels on first before you put the casters on the machine. They are a little difficult to get on but a light tap with a hammer does the job. I would still buy this again. July 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sawdist Bister This is the second of these vacuums that I've had, but the first one was a smaller model. Actually the smaller one was easier to use because the hose was not so bulky, but there was no crevice tool included. This one has a crevice tool, but it is curved on the end, rendering it useless for getting deep into narrow areas. Good suction, and overall it does a good job. The larger canister is a plus because it doesn't have to be emptied nearly so often as the smaller unit that I had before. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product This product is more than what I asked for. Really satisfied with the product July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased For the price definitely worth the money. Very pleased July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great shop vac Much more powerful than my old shop vac. Very pleased with it so far. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap Vac This was a budget priced vac, and there would be some things I would prefer to have that came with it, like the larger hose and adapters like for the table-sawdust port. The operations worked OK, but the hose was cheap and were ill fitting with the wand attachments. Overall, it worked OK after buying an aftermarket hose and adapters at Sears. So, as a budget priced tool it works OK. Next time I'll spend more money. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 12 Gal, 5 PHP Wet/Dry Vacuum Great Tool For Removing Water On Garage Floor Due To Heavy Storm. Also An Excellent Tool For General Cleaning Around The Work Area. July 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Returned The tool storage was a great feature (except the hose had no storage place) and it worked great the 1st 3 times I used it. After that, it stopped working completely. Very disappointing. August 1, 2016
