Can this vac be used to clean indoor carpet and hardwood floors?
Asked by: Tim
A shop vac would not be your best choice for either of these applications although it will pick up some of the dirt. You really need something with a beater bar for carpet and a soft bristle brush for wood flooring.

Can this vac be used to suck dry leaves?
Asked by: tim
You may get by if you occasionally encounter a small leaf or two while cleaning, but if you are doing yard work, you will need something with a much larger hose diameter and greater air flow.

16 Gal. 6.5 HP NXT Wet Dry Vac with Detachable Blower is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 43.

The wet-dry vacuum canister is very large and heavy rigid plastic. The cord is a durable and pretty long. The vacuum sucks really well and the attachment tools are excellent. The tools are easy to slide on and off the vacuum. The thing that sets this apart is the detachable blower. They have it pictured doing leaves outside. I would say that is probably isnt the best for that. I would assume it might be better for smaller jobs like cleaning off a porch or blowing leaves from the garage. I don't think it would be great at doing an entire yard. Its very squat and wheels are a pain to get on. The cord reel is useful but, I wish it was retractable. Great quality and I would definitely buy again.

This replaces my 20 year old rigid vac that still works. The blower got the driveway clean, but didn't move the leaves in the grass. A cordless blower is a little more convenient than hauling extension cords around. I like the drain plug on the bottom and being able to reverse the hose and use it as a blower. I highly recommend the roof gutter attachment. Nothing is better at clearing gutters than this shop vac. I don't even bother with gutter covers anymore. No more ladders. With enough extensions, it even reaches my 2nd floor gutters. Cons - The lid is a little tricky to get back on. If it isn't oriented perfectly it will not lock. They need to add a better visual indicator to align with. I received this 16 GAL. 6.5 HP NXT WET DRY VAC WITH DETACHABLE BLOWER for free to write this review.

I took the advice from one review and placed screws to hold the castor wheel brackets in place. There is a hole for a screw but screws were not provided. The attachments stay on; not like my 20 year old craftsman 16 gal wet/dry vacuum/blower where the attachments would come off at the most inopportune time. The vacuum is very quiet with the vacuum exhaust filter/muffler that is sold as an accessory. The vacuum is very powerful; cannot wait to try the blower out this spring/summer.

I have owned few different wet and dry vacs in the past and this is already my favorite. The general size if really nice. It is short and fat which I find much better for storing the vac and it never feels like it is topping over if you get hung up on the wires. I think the drain plug is a great feature instead of trying to pour out 16 gallons of liquid. All of the attachments, and there are plenty, store nicely on the vac. I love the feature for the detachable blower. I don't recommend it as a dedicated leaf blower though, it just isn't strong enough. It is great to blow the saw dust out of your workspace though. I was able to move around some leaves but only for short distances. It would take you longer than to just rake the leaves at that point but it was great for clearing of the driveway. This is a great vac!
