12 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac with Detachable Blower is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 243.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Haven't had it long enough to decide one way or the other Did not appreciate the run around when trying to register. Gave up on it and for that reason will not go buy a Rigid product in the future. Too bad as it is a good product and that is why I will not recommend it to anyone. Garland Ingraham
