And I didn't. This 12-gallon, 5-horsepower Craftsman Wet/Dry Vac is, in my opinion, a great value for the money. It comes mostly assembled in a big, sturdy cardboard box with carrying handles--a nice touch. The only thing you have to do is attach four plastic caster feet and four casters. To do this, simply release two flexible latches on the side, remove the top and turn the main case upside down. Insert the caster feet into the mounting holes in the base. I gently tapped them with a rubber mallet to make sure they were firmly seated. Then push the casters into the feet until they snap in and freely swivel--there's no mistaking when they're properly in place. Turn the unit back over, mount the top and you're ready to go.
The unit comes with a useful selection of seemingly durable tools--a utility nozzle, a wet nozzle and a car nozzle--as well as two extension wands that go between the tool and the seven-foot-long corrugated plastic hose. The hose is fairly stiff, and I've read reports in reviews elsewhere that it's easy to pull the hose out of the hole where it attaches to the vac. Well, maybe--but then, you shouldn't move the vac around by pulling on the hose. It has a nice, sturdy push-pull handle for that purpose. The 20-foot power cord is also a nice touch.Read more ›
Suction / Power is good and so is the holding capacity. My brother managed to break off the plastic clip that is on the end of the hose. He managed to jam the hose end in too deep into the vacuum. I thought I was going to have to cut the hose off and buy a new one but I was able to get some channel locks on the fitting and turn it back and forth backing it out of the hole..
I also bought the optional filter that attatches to where the air blows out of. The unit Works great.
Update: Rather than spend $$ for new filters I have run water over them outside and washed them out and let them dry for few days outside
