Questions & Answers

Does it work good as a leaf blower

Asked by: Earl
Works really well as a leaf blower. Strong air flow!

Can you hook the hose to the leaf blower?

I noticed in the video he put the wand attachment into the top motor and then twisted it into place. I wanted to connect the hose to the leaf blower so I can bow things off...is that possible?
Asked by: BobbyHCO
Yes you can lock the hose unto the blower. Looking down on top of the vacuum you will see a slot about 1 1/2 inch wide on top of the blower outlet where you can insert the locking end of the hose and latch the hose to the blower.

16 Gal. 6.5-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac with Detachable Blower is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 479.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I love this vac. I bought it to replace a 6 gal shop/vac from Lowes. The biggest difference is the hose diameter, the 1 1/2 hose on the 6 gal unit is fine for in garage(saw dust, etc...) but I have a garage that constantly get's leaves blown. So having the much larger hose on the 16 gal unit great, no issues with vacuuming up leaves or other large items. Have not tried the blower feature as of yet. The auto attachment works very well for cleaning out cars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product was a great value and the additional attachments are great. When I first saw this product it wasn't available. So i clicked the notify me button and about 3 weeks later it was in stock again. The order i went with was only available online because it had additional hose attachments for vehicle cleaning. The vacuum did everything it said and preformed better than i expected. The only criticism is there isn't enough slots for all the attachments. Great product and great buy.

Used this new one on some remodeling work on son's new house. Works as expected, like the on-unit storage. Can only hope will get another 20+ years of use. Home Depot had the best price by far.

We just bought a new house and our backyard walls are covered in vines. The leaves were all dead and were everywhere and we couldn't just rake it up because our ground is covered in mulch. The blower on this vac is so powerful and we were able to blow all the leaves into a corner without a lot of effort. I'm a pretty small female and the blower was light and easy to use. Afterwards, I used the vacuum attachment to vacuum up all the leaves. The tank is huge, so I was able to do the whole backyard without needing to empty out the vac. Also, the vac compacts the leaves, so it holds A LOT! Additionally, we have these huge 20 ft walls that we're tearing down ourselves. I used the vac to clean up all the drywall bits and pieces that were scattered about on the floor. The suction on this thing is amazing! I love that there is a squeegee attachment and will be using it the next time I wash my car. The suction on this vac is so good, so I doubt there would be any issues with trying to use this to dry the outside of my car. I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent vac, lots of power and nice long hose, however the hose storage could be a little better, it competes with the cord for room Excellent vac, very powerful lots of accessories, solid product, could use a little redesign on hose storage, it competes with cord for space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Woodshop work-horse I have a large dust collection system installed in my woodshop, but it was inadequate for the wood chip production of my wood lath. My smaller 5 gal shop-vac was dedicated to my spindle sander, so after reading the other reviews and noting this large 16 gallon 6HP shop vac. was on sale. I bought it. It is AWESOME!! Tremendous suction! It not only captures more chips (and all the sanding dust better than my larger system) but the clean up is now very fast with no clogging due to the 2 1/2" hose. I only wish it came with a 10' hose vs. the 7' and with a Y connector and cap so I could connect y 30' floor hose to it more easily.
