Customer Questions & Answers

Can this unit be mounted on the wall in my garage?

Asked by: Darkhorse
Does not come with a mount but because of the way the handle is built, you could easily fashion a simple hanger for it.

Does this shop vac work well on high pile carpet?

I have a long shag carpet and I was wondering if the suction on the shop vac is strong enough to use on this carpet to get it clean, but not ruin it
Asked by: Inquirer
It will work but the suction on the vacuum is so strong it would take a while to clean high pile carpet

How long is the extension tube? Can 2 tubes connect to each other to double the length to reach the ceiling?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, two tubes will reach a standard 8' to 10' ceiling. You may want to add the soft brush attachment to your order. I know I did.

Can I use this vac to vacuum dirty water and leaves out of a fountain?

Asked by: Anonymous
I took the filter out first before using it on my gutters. It worked well sucking the dirt and water and leaves out and so there is no reason why it would not do a good job on your fountain.

Can this be used to suck up excess moisture from my cars floor mats and upholstery after I've shampooed them?

Asked by: Willie
Hi Willie, this is an excellent wet/dry vacuum and will pick up some of the excess moisture, however the mats will still be damp.

Awsome shop vac, this is high quality, the hose I think is rubber not the cheep plastic that Craftsmen makes. Its hard to find a 3.5-Peak HP in such a small vac. I use this with any kind of cleanups that I use for my carpets. Your typical brush attachment fits with this vac if you use the adaptor which I bought at Ace, but they have them at Home Depot I also modified mine for my convenience. This is easy to lift and you can hang on to it while u vacuum up leaves in your home and messes. I can't lift much but this just works. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Barber Shop MUST HAVE! I own a busy Barber Shop and this vacuum caught my eye mainly because of the built in dust pan. This has been a great help in keeping my shop clean! Simply turn it on and sweep the loose hair towards the vacuum and Voila! it's gone. The small amount that is missed on the first pass is taken care of with a second. It's a bit noisy, but so is the shop - so it's not out of place at all. Looks sharp sitting on the floor - no need to hide this bad boy. After registering, I have no service worries that this will not last. To all Barbers and Salon owners out there - GET THIS TODAY! You will thank me!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tips over - deal breaker it is a good compromise off small footprint yet strong suction,and I really wanted to like this vac, but... - somewhat top-heavy and very prone to falling over: a) when the flex hose is extended, or b) when the hose or attachment is flush against an object,(cleaning a floor with the end at an angle, it works great; but put the end flush against a carpet and the suction power immediately tips the vac over - unit does not seal tight, the top does not clamp down tight to the bottom, not a problem when it sits on the floor, but if you lift the vac while using it, the top lifts up just a fraction, and I suspect loses suction power

Hose could be a little longer, when stretching it to reach the canister will flip causing the ball to plug suction, then have to turn it off and put canister upright to continue task at hand

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 gallon? Too small and tall which tips over too easy. On top of that, filter takes up what little room there is in the tank, so it's more like a half gallon, not 3. Hose is terrible, it tips the vacuum over everytime. Two thumbs down,

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good suction I use this vacuum for general clean up and it has enough power for most of the work I need it for. I do wish it had an option for blowing. This would have been ideal then.
