Product Description

Designed for car enthusiasts, this Armor All wet/dry vac comes with a powerful 2 HP motor and compact design. The vac easily picks up dirt for a thorough cleaning and the blower function is ideal for cleaning and drying motorcycles, car grilles and wheels. This portable unit with its 2.5-gallon polypropylene tank is strong enough to handle wet or dry cleanups around the house, garage or shop. Product Type Vacuum, Blower Included Yes, Power Cord ft. 10, Capacity gal. 2.5, Product Style Wet/dry, HP 2, Hose Diameter in. 1 1/4, Tank Material Polypropylene, Hose Length ft. 6, Filter Included Yes.

From the Manufacturer

ArmorAll's Utility Wet/Dry Vacs have the ability to clean up both solids and liquids, offering seemingly unlimited uses. The 2.5 gallon polypropylene tank is small enough to carry around, but large enough for most jobs. A 2 horsepower motor provides ample suction power, as well as an easy conversion to a blower function. Auto shut-off detects fill limit and prevents overflow. Top handle and onboard accessory storage make for easy carrying. Built-in air and noise diffuser minimizes volume. Other great features include a 10-foot cord with wrap, 6-foot, 1.25-inch hose, reusable cloth filter, reusable foam sleeve, 2-in-1 utility nozzle, crevice tool, deluxe car nozzle, blower nozzle, and detail brush. No assembly required.

I'm totally satisfied with this vac. Very powerful, light weight and well priced. I read all reviews before buying it and one mentioned a few flaws. I remedied them with gorilla tape. 1-2 inches of tape inside the rim of the blower connection will create a lasting, snug fit for the hose. Wrapping the base of each accessory tool, one time around, will keep the tools snug on the storage slots. Since the largest tool doesn't fit on the storage slots, slide it over the smaller crevice tool to store it and walla...everything is good to go! The Stinger 2.5 Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum at Home Depot was a close 2nd but has less power, fewer tools and a shorter hose. I researched them all...buy this one!
Update 11/23/14: For those who stated that they have not had the same problems that I experienced, please keep in mind that I purchased this product in 2011. Since that time, I would hope that the company has remedy them.

UPDATE: 10-11-2014 I just finished vacuuming and realized again, how much I prefer this shop vac. About 6 months ago, I purchased a Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional Upright so that I could have a fancy vacuum with a roller to use on my large red area rug and smaller area rugs. That vacuum does indeed do a very good job on the actual rugs, but I keep going back to my trusty ArmorAll shop vacuum to do all the hardwood floors and corners and everything else. It is so light and easy to tote and pull around (and it doesn't fall over like the Shark does with hose or attachments). 3 years plus and this shop vac is still going gangbusters. I did use it for wet vac projects a couple times and it did great, just remember to take off the filter and let it dry out totally before dry vacuuming again. I also discovered that if I add 2 drops of lavender essential oil on the elastic part of the filter bag, I get a nice scent as I clean too. After 3 years, if this one ever breaks, I'm buying another one right away.

ORIGINAL: March 7, 2011 I didn't buy this shop vac from Amazon, but I love it so much I wanted to write a review on it. I got it at Sam's Club during the holiday season and gave it to myself for Christmas.

I have 2 long-haired (with undercoat) dogs and I was sick and tired of cleaning out my upright PET-SPECIALTY Dirt Devil vacuum from so much pet hair even on bare floor settings. I'd have to empty the clear canister over and over just from once around my small home. I hate touching that stuff. Many times I'd have to clean out the clogged hoses as well and that is a pain. I have recently removed much of the carpet in the house and was left with only hardwood floors and sweeping so many pet-hair-piles was too time consuming and messy.

There are plenty enough reviews of this vacuum, but I think it deserves another just for its ability to clean out wood stoves.

I finally tired of cleaning the ashes out of my pellet stove with a 30 year old Craftsman shopvac. It's a heavy duty machine, but it's huge, awkward in the house on its casters, and howls like a Lear Jet taking off. Emptying it is not pretty, either, requiring a shower afterwards, at least.

The Armor All shopvac is exactly right for the job: easy to tote, plenty of suction, a motor sound that doesn't scare cats on the next ranch over, and maybe most important, easy to clean. The included attachments are also appropriate and handy.

NOTE: for fireplace ashes and drywall dust, which are extremely fine, the manufacturer recommends an optional fine filter, and this is important, as the powdery dust from ashes will work through a regular filter and burn out the motor.

ALSO NOTE: I called the number for parts in the manual to order that fine filter, and a helpful representative gave me an absolutely super extra tip: mount a regular paper vacuum bag over the inflow tube in the canister and collect the ashes in that. If you do (and I did) hardly any ash gets through to the filter over the motor, and you can simply remove the bag and drop it in the garbage instead of turning the canister over and dumping the ashes in a choking cloud of dust. They carry the bags, too, though I had some leftover bags with a collar gasket that just fit over the inflow tube and those worked well too.)

I got it for dealing with a leaky AC unit drip pan. I picked this one because of the longer power cord and longer hose. That was important in my selection. The power seemed to be fine... I did have a few design flaw issues to address:

1) When using the Blow mode - the hose does not stay in the hole. The power pushes it out... so you have to keep pushing it back in. That is a Big pain. No idea how to resolve this issue other than just holding it in place.

2) The big headed angled nozzle... well.. this does NOT fit into any of the storage slot on the top... those are just for the smaller parts.

3) The unit does not hold a lot of water. this is not really a design flaw other than be aware. The bucket CAN hold more... but the filter and motor sit down into the bucket... so it takes up space.

Overall - it does the job. Has longer hose/power cord than most. Small portable unit.
