1. The tank is stainless steel, but could be dented if you abuse it. I wouldn't drag it down the stairs by the hose. With proper care, it should last a lifetime. The handle and wheels are permanently attached to the unit, so it might be hard to invert the tank for cleaning purposes. The motor, cord, attached filter and top lid completely remove from the tank for cleaning.
2. The cord is plenty long enough for most homes, and the 12 foot hose is fantastic. You can reach ceiling fans without having to carry the vac up the ladder.
3. The wheels are sturdy, and make moving the vac very easy.
4. The motor is reasonably quiet (at least compared to my Sears unit), and sufficiently powerful to vacuum sand from the floor, through the 12 foot hose, and into the tank. Although the HP rating seems small, the motor is a two stage unit which much more efficient than the single stage units seen on cheaper vacs. Even after three days of cleaning a very dusty house, garage, and automobile (without emptying the dust bag), there was sufficient suction for efficient cleaning. I ran the unit from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM for three days, and didn't notice any heat problems or strange noises indicating that I was overtaxing the motor.
5. This unit comes with a paper filter, and I added vacuuum bags to eliminate any possible release of dust from the unit. The vac bags are a great idea. They protect the paper filter, keep the inside of the vac clean, and make for very easy cleanup.Read more ›
The hose kinks and the thing tips over. That's life. After all these years, I went shopping for another after the tank sprung a leak at a weld. Hey, it's 27 years old! After seeing the price, I decided instead to refurbish this. The few parts I needed because of my rough handling over the years were available. They were replaced, it was taken apart and cleaned and I welded the tank. Darn thing's good as new.
A finer American-made tool can't be had. Hope they keep making 'em like this! They are my heroes.
This vacuum is used at home to clean up woodworking and metalworking shops. I also use it for sucking out water from confined areas. I hook it up to power sanders and my table saw and other tools. It cleaned up the messes created in gutting out our 19th century home and remodeling it completely (it had 100 years of crud in some areas). I had bought two other "cheap" Shop-Vacs from local big box stores during the remodel to help keep up with all the work but they failed miserably while this unit just kept on ticking.
I've gone through countless filters, replaced the heavy metal wands with lighter, plastic ones, and the stainless housing has a number of dents...but the vacuum still works great and earns its keep. The original hose is still in great shape and it has seen a lot of abuse. It has been stepped on, run over by my truck and had all sorts of heavy objects dropped on it.
Don't look at HP ratings of these motors, because this two stage motor will out suck most higher HP motors and last a lot longer since it's able to cool itself even when things get clogged up.
I would not hesitate to buy another one of these. It is well worth the extra money compared to the cheap units you can buy at the big box stores. It's not so much the stainless housing that is worth the extra money, but the two stage motor.
My only complaint is that there isn't an easy way to store the hose. So, I zip-tied a piece of plastic pipe to one of the handles and use it as a scabbard for the wand and coil the hose on top of the motor. Works great.
Five stars for durability, longevity and reliability.
