4.5 Gallon Pro Pack Portable Wet/Dry Vac
Very powerful, stores easily
I used to use this vacuum all the time when I worked for a contracting company, and it was great. It was so powerful it could literally suck up rocks, and the compartments keep the cord, hose, and all attachments neatly stored, and its shape make it easy to store. I even used it as a step-stool more than once!
It's a great shop vac and I always wanted my own, but it's hard to pay $100 for one when I can get a descent shop vac on sale for $20. Nevertheless this one is worth it and you won't regret buying it.

RIGID Wet/Dry Vacuum
This is an excellent product for a craftsman working on a job. I bought it to use when working on my boat. It has plenty of suction for dry and wet jobs to clean up the mess. The only issue might be the length of the hose, but it really does expand without dragging the unit, just be careful. This issue is far outweighed by the compactness of the unit in the size of an oversized tool box and all the components fit inside or along the side (the extension wands). It is easy to carry with the oversized handle.

Great Power, Light Weight
We rehab houses and got tired of the heavy, yet low power "other" brand we were using. This Rigid is great with as much power with the brush on as the other had with just the hose. Also converts to a blower which is a nice bonus. Toobox design is odd, but works well and is easy to carry.

As an electrician, I find this shop vac to be perfect for quick cleanups. The stow and go design allows it to easily fit into my van. Well worth the money!

Powerful, compact, and cool looking. Only problem is my wife has a helluva time putting all the attachments back in the right place. Go figure.

I love this Vac!
I ordered this model to allow easy stowage in my Express Van. It is a bit larger than I expected but fits perfect between the rack and rear door on the left side.
The Vac has plenty of power and will swallow a 1/2"x3" bolt from a few inches above! The hose, cord and all accessories fit Inside the vac's top "lid" and that makes for a really nice all in one package . The receptacle tank itself is a bit small due to the space alloted for the hose and cord so if you plan on big jobs or don't like to empty often then this is not for you. The hose itself is very flexible and accordions on itself to become very compact...about 1/4 its stretched length...cool. There are two 2' rigid extensions tubes that mount on removable brackets that clip on to the side of the vacuum. This adds to the depth of the overall footprint but since it is removable it did not bother. Besides, where else would they go? Overall I am totally pleased with the vac. The build quality is superb and it's heavy duty for sure. I have three milk crates each about twenty lbs stacked on top of it... no sign of distress.
great bargain for the Faucet Direct price. Get one!!!
