Shop-Vac 8 Gallon 5.5 Peak HP Right Stuff Wet / Dry Vacuum
8 Gallon 5.5 Peak HP Right Stuff Shop Vac
Mike Chun from Torrance, CA
Purchase this Shop Vac Primary for Woodworking and General Construction Projects. Primary advantage of this vac are a 1.5 inch diameter hose, vaccum bags can be attached, saving the air filter from wear, and the container is made out of stainless steel metal, as opposed to plastic. This unit is light weight, easy to use, and the noise level is low for a shop vac, not to confuse or compare with a house vaccum noise level. The size is perfect for jobs on the go. I have a larger Craftsman vac with a 2.5 hose set up and at times can be cumbersome when moving from one area to another, especially in tight places. Plus with no vaccum bag to attach, this unit constantly needs the filter to be washed in order for the vac to operate efficiently. Working with fine dust, you definitely need a vaccum bag attached to the vac in order for the vac to work properly. Note this review is based on dry material and not wet.
