My dad has this same vacuum, it's 20 years old and hasn't skipped a beat, so I went out and bought a new one for myself. It's just as great as the old model. I have used the shop-vac equivalent, and there is no comparison in power. I'm not sure what problem the previous reviewer had with vacuuming water. I don't use the foam insert for splash protection while doing major water jobs, but would consider purchasing it. Just take out the filter, and use it to empty a five gallon bucket in about 20 seconds, or dry a hard or carpet floor incredibly well. I used mine to treat my carpets instead of renting a wet vac. I would recommend an aftermarket cleanstream filter once the paper filter wears-out. They last a very long time, are washable, and you don't have to worry about ruining them with a little bit of intermittent water clean-up.

I've had this vac for almost 6 months now and I love it. I must say I've grown to love it more now than I have when i first bought it. I originally bought it to clean up saw dust from when I had my wood floor installed. I originally used a household upright vac which worked but got clogged from the saw dust and wood pieces. This wet dry vac got the job done. I then used it to clean lint and dust around my washer and dryer in the laundry room and it worked well there too. I also cleaned up saw dust in the garage when having molding and doors replaced around the house so it worked for that too. But the one usage of this I am SO happy about is cleaning leaves from my driveway and front lawn. I first tried blowing the leaves into a pile with it but it was hard for me to control the leaves without getting some on my neighbors lawn. I then just vacuumed the leaves into the wet dry vac and emptied the full drum into a plastic bag and disposed of them that way. That's when I thought, I should have bought one of these years ago!

I've been able to avoid buying a wet/dry vac for many years, mainly because I was always able to borrow one on those rare occasions when I needed to suck up a lot of stuff. But I recently decided to bite the bullet, so to speak, and get my own. I visited my local Sears store intending to buy one that was on sale. But a different model was on display next to the one I was interested in, and it offered higher performance at a lower price. How could I go wrong?

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.

Model number 113.177650. 120 volts 10.5 Amps. Had we known the filters for this vacuum ranged in price of $30.00 we wouldn't of purchased this vacuum. The attatchments fit in the caster wheel body. The long tubes do too, but they only fit in certain casters as the tubes interfere with the vacuum's cover handle,

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
