    Handy to have around

    I picked this up on sale in June, mainly to use when I clean out our vehicles, and it definitely has paid for itself by not having to go to the gas station every couple of months to use their vacuums. It also came in handy on several occasions this summer when water came in our basement. The only thing that annoyed me was that the filter that comes with it needs to be taken out when vacuuming water. I just left it off afterwards.

    As a first time homeowner in the five boroughs and I now have a garage, car, family room and basement I needed something that worked and was inexpensive to own and this one fits the bill. It's pretty powerful against dirt and water alike and easy to empty. The only concern is the clasp that hold the motor to the tank are flimsy and a downspout would have been even cooler to drain tank.

    First time I've bought a Stanley shop vac. It's a cute little thing. I have a large Shop Vac in my garage and a small Sears shop vac for my cars. The small Sears has amazing suction power! This Stanley is just so-so. Of the three I own I would rate this one the cutest, but the leaves a lot to be desired for good clean ups. Stanley dropped the ball on this item.

    I purchased this item because it fit my needs, I have a very crowded, small shop, so this just fits the bill. I waish it could also be used as a blower, but it can't, but it is what I needed, size does matter, I bought one that does both, but it took up too much space. Plus, it looks very nice, sitting in it's little niche in my much crowded shop.

    Just got this vac. So I tried it out today. Was concerned about the power. I was pleasantly surprised. This little vac has all the power you need. I used it to clean two cars. This little vac will pull the carpet mats up off the floor board. This is a great choice. and a good price. I will update after I use it some more.

    I have been looking for something like this for a while. Having a vacuum for the garage is an extra and not a 'have to have' item. couldn't pass up the price point frankly. Industrial use maybe a stretch, but it is better than any 'regular' vacuum. Especially for the money. Light and easy to move around.

    I keep this shop vac in the garage so it’s handy to vacuum the cars periodically. I also use it to vacuum the garage when strong winds blow leaves and other debris inside. It has enough suction and does a good job.

    Bought this Stanley vac because of the Stanley name and the price. It works well for the jobs I need it for.I use it in the basement for clean up jobs --dirt,dust,light amounts of water and I also use it in the garage to clean the inside of my car and my work van.Good value for the price paid.

    It has very powerful suction and very useful vacuum cleaner for a mid size family home. I admire entire product line of Stanley since long time and have been looking for this machine approximately 2 months since I saw it online and finally ordered via Best buy and got it!! Thanks Stanley!!

    I bought this on a whim to use until I got a traditional vacuum and fell in love! The unit is so light and agile that it makes small/quick clean-ups a breeze. I haven't used it for any wet messes yet, but it has been perfect for vacuuming around baseboards and other hard to reach areas.

    Good Machine for the Price

    I bought this as a deal of the day for $40. A little disappointed in some of the small features (no place to put end of hose when not in use, no real convenient way to coil power cord, etc). The diameter of the hose seems a little small, but it still gets the job done.

    The Vacuum is smaller than advertised, but has plenty of power that cleans well. The hoses are also smaller, but seems to work as expected. I would recommend this vacuum for a midsize garage, but not for a heavy construction shop.

    I needed a small wet/dry vac for general cleanup around the house and garage. This one is not big enough for huge jobs but should be big enough for the average person. It is a lot more portable than my 20 gallon vac and the stainless steel tank is very nice.

    Good power but due to top-heavy design hard keep from tipping over which becomes annoying after a while. A brush attachment would have been useful as well for vacuuming vents, baseboards and such. Still very lightweight, easy to manage and useful.

    It's nice and small, yet plenty powerful! It's the only Shop Vacuum I've seen that comes with a carpet brush attachment. That is wonderful for cleaning almost any area of your vehicle. Plus, the vacuum is portable enough to use for steps or anything else!

    Little vac that packs a lot of power! I love it! I use it when giving my car a wash. I have 2 dogs that I drive around and one is a border collie. He leaves behind a lot of hair, but this vac takes care of it.

    The vacuum works pretty good. I bought it to clean up my patio. But if I try to suck up a group of leaves, they clog up the hose and I have to stop and unplug the hose. Fot other types of cleanup, it will probably work better.

    The vac is a little smaller than I had realized but it works great!. This is the perfect little vac for the garage, hobby room or yard. It is pretty powerful for its size and I thought the sale price was fair for what you get!

    WOW-this is a powerful puppy. The exhaust is so strong it moves the machine around. Beautiful little piece of equipment and doesn't take a lot of floor space like most "shop" vacs. Not tippy/very stable. I am impressed.
