Small, portable, and powerful
Small, light, and portable yet powerful which makes it easy to pull out a use, and then put away out of the way. Also can easily carry it to other projects outside of the workshop.

excellent product
I hoped it would be quieter than it is. I didn't realize the diameter of the hose at 1.5 inches
didn't match my other vacuums (2 inches) It also wouldn't fit the saws' vacuum tubes (2 inches).
I had to return the item for these 2 reasons.

It is an excellent vacuum for the person who needs a portable, strong, vacuum.

Easy To Use
Great vac with lame accessories
I needed a light weight but powerful wet vac to go along with my upright carpet scrubber.
When I got this Shop-Vac I found it to be so light portable and powerful that I decided to use it as my primary vacuum cleaner in lieu of my very old and very heavy Electrolux canister vac but it came with a very limited and poorly designed set of attachments.
Fortunately my local sew&vac store sold me a hose adapter so I can use all my Electrolux attachments with my new Shop-Vac.
I haven't yet tried using it for drawing water out of a damp carpet, but with the great suction it creates, I don't foresee a problem.
I recommend this as a good workshop vac, but better accessories need to be made available before I would recommend it as an all purpose household vacuum.
