Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 107 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big but for the price it is a great bargain. I purchased this when it was on sale (cheaper than the 5-7 gal models) and am glad I did. It has great suction and for it's size, easy to move around. It's nice to have the extra capacity so I'm not emptying it every hour or so. Also, for the size it is very light weight. So far the hoses and attachments stay together well during use. It only came with 1 flexible hose, 2 extensions, and a floor tool. It would have been nice to have a 'reducer' tool but not a deterrent. January 21, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not Happy I jumped on this during the Black Friday sale but little did I know, I was purchasing a bottom of the line cheap made junk. The first thing that stood out was the lack of accessories. I was OK with that since it was only $40, I figured they removed the accessories to save costs. The second thing that bothered me was the noise on this thing. I'm used to loud tools but this thing makes a high pitched noise that is really bothersome. Again, I could handle the noise if the suction was decent but that also let me down on this unit. What really did it for me was when I found out I could not use bags with this. Really?? I'm not a fan of cartridge filters as they clog up quickly and suction is quickly lost as well as costs $25 a cartridge. This is going right back. December 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value, Great Product Excellent product for the price. Works well. Make sure to note hose size when buying additional accesories. Used this for vacuuming wet rugs (needed to purchase foam filter). Can't wait to use this for shop vac and auto uses. Strong motor and large canister. December 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome buy! The vacuum is powerful, easy to manuever, and has full product line of parts and extras. The long hose and power cord makes cleaning larger areas easier. January 20, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Low features and low quality= low price I agree with all the critical observations. This large 16 gallon vac comes with a reducer down to a 1-7/8"skinny hose and wands which really cheapens it up. Skinny = clogs easier. It's on its way back. November 29, 2014
