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
Other improvements in this shop-vac over the Craftsman:
-- much better accessory storage
-- many more accessories, even a nice wide floor brush with carpet/hard (wood, linoleum, tile) settings like a regular vacuum
-- cord pegs to wind the cord around for storage
-- no need to "flip" the diverter when switching from wet to dry (though some versions may come with that kind of diverter, the instructions discuss both)
-- Easier to clean. The craftsman had inner lips which folded inward and caught debris when you tried to empty it; this shop vac's tank is like a mop bucket, with smooth sides that cleanly empty wet or dry debris. As a matter of fact, I could use the tank as a handleless mop bucket.
The craftsman had a couple of advantages. It was about $10 cheaper (10 years ago, anyway) and also came with a foam filter (for wet vac). The foam filter doesn't appear to be necessary, though; I just used this vacuum to unclog a drain and the combo filter that came with it had no problems with the water. The 1.25" hose was very helpful for this, 2.5" is too big. The 1.25" hose also provides better suction, but less efficiency and difficulty picking up bigger items from the shop.
Please note that I rarely use bags, since I use this in the shop, mostly.Read more ›
Good grief ! Almost any bag from many upright bagged vacuum cleaners will work,
including Hoover type A and Y .. There may be some bags out there where the orifice
is too large, but it is nothing a little duct tape won't cure..
That said, this is a very powerfull well appointed vac ..

Purchased two, works great.
If you are planning to use as a wet and dry vacuum order an extra filter. Have one filter for dry and one filter for wet.
Shop-Vacs definately belong in the house! It had never occured to me before to replace a normal upright with a Shop-Vac but I'm glad I finally came to my senses!Published 1 month ago by Farmer
It's compact yet powerful. My second one. Bought for my 84 year old mother. The long hose and on board attachments make it handy.Published 1 month ago by Cal
Works great for hardwood/tile floors but when it comes to working on rugs, the attachments don't work that well.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
