Customer Questions & Answers

Do you need to use the dust bag?

Do you need to use the dust bag or can it just go into the bucket part? I hate having to buy those bags!
Asked by: DarkHorse
I have a (above) 2.5 canister cleaner. Dust bag? The unit has very little suction now. There is no dust bag inside. Is that the reason for loss of suction?

Can you vacuum up drywall dust with this? Don't have a large area to sand.

Asked by: Mel
Drywall dust is the kiss of death to most vacuums because it blows thru the bag material and gets into the motor components and destroys the motor . Using cheaper 3rd party bags is a definite NoNo .

Where do I buy replacement filters and bags?

Asked by: MNFishingGuy
Stanley licenses its name to Alton Industries for vacuum cleaners; Alton Industries sells replacement filters for high prices, for example $15 for a cloth filter (25-1201). I found 3 for $8, curiously from a vendor located in the same town: Palatine, Illinois, on eBay.

Customer Reviews

2.5 Gal. Wet/Dry Vacuum is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 100.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality vacuum at a great price! When I first purchased this vacuum, it was to replace the Shop Vac i owned which had died. I was never too happy with that vacuum as it always fell over and the filter was a pain. My main use being apartment cleanup for my rental unit. This vacuum has a more powerful suction with a much simpler filter design. The on/off button is very visible and is easy to engage. Never understood the toggle switch design on these types of vacuums, and this vacuum resolves that issue. Lots of attachments, what else can you ask for at the price-point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vac for the money I wanted a small shop vac for my patio. And this little vac is perfect. It is small enough to store in my corner cabinet, has a large enough capacity for the mequite leaves and twigs that collect on my patio and the power it takes to suck them up easily. Assembly was easy; just took a bit of hammering to get the wheels into their swockets. Two criticisms: the power cord is too short and I have to use an extension cord. My patio is small and the outlet is located in the center of the patio so the power cord is really, really too short.. Second criticism is the loudness of the vacuum. Probably should be using earplugs when I use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a good wet/dry vacuum as it has strong suction and its on wheels, two features that I was looking for. This vacuum with its 4 hp motor has a really strong suction. Combined with the wheels, its a really good small wet/dry vacuum. Two small drawbacks are the short electrical cord and the short hose. If the cord could be 5 feet longer and the hose 3-4 feet longer and more flexible, then it would be an excellent vacuum. BTW, other reviewers have said that the dust bags are difficult to find. I use the 2 - 3 gallon Shop Vac brand of dust bags and have found that they work good. I found them at Wall Mart. It would be good if Home Depot would carry the dust bags. Its not a quiet vacuum, but with such a strong motor, quiet would be difficult to say the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but mighty Stanley 2.5 Gl Vacuum I needed a small vacuum for my car and other needs. The suction is really good and is small and easy to carry around! It comes with the attachments you'll need for everyday jobs. It works really good taking pet hair and sand out of my vehicle. Comes with different filters. The sponge one you can clean and wash and a paper disposable one for other choirs like dust or gypsum from drywalls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful, compact, inexpensive - just what I needed Okay - so I had to shove in the casters underneath (they didn't "snap" in), but other than that, just what I needed to clean up sawdust, etc around a small home construction project. I'm glad I didn't spend extra for size and options I didn't need. This does the trick, and takes up hardly any room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and powerful. I run a handyman service and needed a compact vacuum strong enough to clean up after me. I found this vacuum after recommendation from a contractor friend of mine. He was right. This vac is small and exceedingly powerful. I was shocked by the strength of the motor on this one. It comes with all the attachments I'd need and even includes a bag. Great price and tucks away in the corner of my pickup bed without taking up much space at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome vacuum for the price This vacuum is amazing. It is so small and easy to carry. it fist every where and its 4 hp is perfect for the size. the engine tends to get warm after prolonged use but not bad. the suction on it is extremely good. I only with is had a port for Blowing leaves and derbies. but all in all a great product. I may get another soon.
