Good vac but bags will bunkrupt you.
on April 12, 2012
I have this vac for a few years now, and it's very dependable, easy to use, and will last and last. I'd rate it 5, but...
1 - bags are impossible to find. nobody carry them or even 4 gallon size in general. to buy online will bankrupt you as shop vac running nice little racket, selling those 6 cent cost items for $6 to 12 per bag. The costs of replacement bags will very quickly overrun the cost of vac.
What I ended up doing is buying next bigger size bags of whatever cheapest brand local store carry(5-8 gallons), just making sure they are similar in shape and look. they always fit and work nicely, you just have to bend it a little along the bottom so it fits into the vac. That'll run you about $2 a bag or less if find a deal.
2 - there is no good nozzle to efficiently vacuum garage floor or any concrete floor, like basement.
EDIT: for basement/garage floor - I added a cheap floor tool on wheels from HomeDepot. Similar to this http://www.amazon.com/Carpet-Floor-Nozzle-Eureka-39134-6/dp/B0047IWIII/ref=sr_1_37?s=vacuums&ie=UTF8&qid=1366817076&sr=1-37&keywords=floor
