Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barbara1948 Rigid wet dry vac - 9 gallon
I paid $29 for this great little wet dry vac because I came home from a vacation and my a/c's auto shut off activated because of condensate water inside the air handler.
I brought this home, read the directions, went outside, and plugged it in, then suctioned out the condensate from the drain. I used duct tape to seal between the hose and the pvc drain pipe, turned it on and let it run for 1 or 2 mins. Voila! All the green gunk and water that was in the drain is now gone! A/C service call = $85 or more. Wet Dry Vac was $29.
I will put this on my calendar to add bleach to the system, followed by 1 or 2 cups of water, then suction the drain line every 3 months to prevent A/C condensate drain problems, since I have to have A/C at all times in HOT Florida.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mycleanup11 My very own shop vac!
Ok, there are times when I just cannot carry all of my husbands tools and they are too heavy or cumbersome. Well, we have recently purchased this perosnal shop vac for myself. I ever so enjoy completing my household projects and doing cleanup projects on my own, All I have to do is pull this very lightweight unit to any room in our house. It is especially great for cleaning out kids rooms and cleaning out the sofas in our house. I have bought extra attachments and extensions. This is a great product for anyone wanting to tackle your own clean up projects, easy to use and great for the kids to use too. My youngest son really loves cleaning under his bed without getting unde it. He just uses the extra long attachments and the cleanup is done.I recomment this lightweight product for anyone! I am planning on purchasing one for a gift too!

While the vacuum will pick up sawdust, small pieces, etc., it doesn't have the HP to pick up larger items, this is certainly not what is needed for anything other than minor cleanup, but for $20, that didn't seem unreasonable.
Just be certain when installing the top to direct the exhaust the opposite direction as the vacuum hose, otherwise what you are trying to vacuum will end up blown across the room....there is enough exhaust airflow to dry your hair quickly!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TigerT Great vac for home use! Super bargain under $20!
Great price for normal home use. Better suction than attachments on most household carpet or canister vacs. Low profile for easy towing around inside the house. I will use primarily for dusting and sucking up water after moping the kitchen and bathroom floors. No problems with sawdust and other garage debris, but 1.75 hose is too small for large wood chips in a workshop. Higher performance filters such as HEPA available if you don't mind spending more for a filter than for the vac.
The price is better than a Rigid replacement hose alone.
Somewhat noisy, kind of a like a wind whistle. Won't accept 2.5" hose and attachments. Comes only with hose, wands, and general purpose nozzle. Dusting brush, wet squeegee, floor brush, and crevice tool are each extra. Too small for daily contractor use, but they usually can justify more money for the very best tools of their trade.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cappuccino great vac
I bought this vac to clean up the mess from my house renovating. All in all I've been quite pleased with it. It has great suction and is able to pick up most things. I wish it came with more attachments. The only con is that the hose attachments keep coming off the main hose.
By the way, the shipping time on this item was unbelievable! Home Depot really moves to get their items to the customer. 5 Stars to H.D. !

This is a fantastic shop vac, and for the price you can't do better. The only downside is it didn't come with a crevice tool, but I went to the Home Depot store and bought a 1 7/8" crevice tool/brush combo set for $12.97 to complete the package. The force of suction is unbelievable, and it also has a blower for those hard-to-reach places.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gotheart Unbeatable Price!
This vac is larger than pictured. It is exactly what we were looking for at an unbelievable price. With plenty of power, this vac can suck up just about anything. Very easy to assemble, and it even has a blower. I have not tried sucking up water yet because I'm afraid to mess it up. There is no way you will find a better price for what this vac has to offer.
