Review 1 for Shop-Vac 5 Gallon 4.5 Peak HP Brute Vac, 5872727

Great Portable Tool

Handy for small jobs and quick clean ups. With several house pets and tile floors, staying on top of the fur is a challenge. Pick up power and portability is great. I do find that the lack of wheels and short power cord are cumbersome.

I bought this for my houseboat instead of another mighty mite eureka boss. My thinking was that its ability to handle wet stuff might come in handy on a boat. It is supposed to have 4.5 horsepower but compared to my 12 amp mighty mite It has weaker suction. All in all though it is a nice little wet dry vac which does the job. The short cord is easily addressed with an extension cord .... which you can get cheap and of the length you want.

I like this Shop Vac a lot - strong suction

I really like this Shop Vac. If it had wheels it would be perfect. Even without wheels it moves along pretty easy. I like to use the Shop Vac bags as I have a lot of dust and pet hair in my house and the bags keep the air cleaner and it is so easy to empty the vac without a lot of dust spewing into the air when it is emptied.
It has very good suction and easily picks up the hair left by my eight cats. I like the color too and the shape is "cute." The cord is short, but I just use a extension cord with it all the time.
I am very happy with this purchase and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Some good power but while using it to vacume up in the garage it got cloged way to easy. Just some leaves that had been there for a year or so. This vacume couls not handle it. I would suggust something with a bigger hose.
