Top critical review
Severely under-powered. Suitable for light duty use only.
on April 6, 2016
The good: It's cheap. It doesn't take up very much space. It comes with all of the necessary attachments. All in all, this is a decent little utility vacuum.
The bad: It's under-powered. I seriously question the 2 hp rating that is stated in the product description. I've had shop vacs in the past that were also advertised as 2 hp, and they packed a lot more punch than this little guy...and I mean a lot. Maybe twice the suction. Even vacuuming out the interior of your vehicles (especially on stuff that is in the carpet/floor mats) you will notice how not powerful this ArmorAll vac is on a light duty job.
When the filter and everything is perfectly clean, it does a bit better, but how often do you really want to clean out your shop vac? For me, it's only as often as I have to, definitely not after every use. So, while I am not exactly happy with this product, it works alright. I would recommend that you buy something with a little more power. This performs like a 1 hp or even less.
Three stars for value and halfway decent performance.
