Excellent Vacuum!


I bought this for downstairs in the storage area. We liked it because it fits on the shelves nicely and doesn't take up room on the floor. Everything fits together nicely and stores all together. I used it a couple times now and I am very happy with it.

Just what I expected.


Just received this for Christmas. It is small, lightweight, powerful, reasonably quiet with many accessories and a long cord. It will get a lot of use in a bathroom remodel and general garage dirt. Huge improvement over old noisy, tip-over model!

Bought for toolbox design. Not impressed with suction even after 4hp motor.


Moves alot of air, reasonably quiet. Easy to carry around when moving around the job but lacks alot suction even with the 4hp motor. I unfortunately have to purchase something else that has even more power.

Highly Recommended

Compact, efficient, great tool storage capability, and really does the job


Bought one of these months ago for my business and really liked it. Workers on jobsites always ask about it. Unfortunately, it out fell out of the back of my truck somewhere after leaving the tailgate down. Don't know how well it bounced, but I ordered...

Consumer review by: Robert (

This is one of my favorite new purchases. Very powerful and versatile. Worth every penny.


Very powerful vacuum and everything fits inside. It is perfect for big and small jobs unless you need a vacuum with wheels so you can drag it around. Maybe the will come out with a cradle for that or you could probably add casters to it. The only...
