If you want power, you want craftsman.

These craftsman vacuums are most defiantly the best and longest lasting industrial vacuum that you can get for under $500. These vacuums have trumendous suction and will not loose suction as they begin to fill with dirt and dust. The thing that I like most about craftsman vacuum is unlike shop vac brand vacuums these do not rely on expensive bags for filtration these vacuums are baggless, but you can buy bags For them if you would like. These vacuums are built to last and have absolutly no problem handling any mess the job throughs at you. These vacuums come with all the tools that you get when you by a cheaper vacuum and more so you can use these vacuums for any type of job you can think of.

The older shop vacs were much, much better.... this is the second new one of this model that has died in a very short time due to motor brushes arching and melting plastic motor parts. Replacement brushes not available and a replacement motor costs more than buying a new unit. Craftsman quality has diminished!

Jam-Packed With Features!


Works great as a wet/dry vac and as a blower. The detachable feature of the motor portion is really nice, lots of power in a light package. Lots of suction, lots of dirt/water capacity, and the array of included attachments and selection of available filters is fantastic.

It has spots to stow all the included attachments on the unit itself, making swapping bits and pieces convenient; they're always with the vac! I've gotten a lot of use out of this, and there's no sign of it slowing down.

Great Vac


So Far So Good... Got it for Christmas only because my old Craftsman vac burnt up after over 15 years, this one much lighter then old vac not sure if that's good or not? But much easier to move around with the new wheel design. Very Happy So Far

Great model.


Excellent service from the site, fast delivery. This vac is so good! Replaced my 20 year old version. This one seems like it’s good for another 20 years!

Very Disappointed


I bought this to replace an old 16 gallon Craftsman Vac I used in my garage to vacume up leaves, gravel, dirt, just about anything. I thought having the detachable blower would be a nice bonus. This thing was embarrassing. It had terrible suction. I had to use my small 6 gallon vac with a smaller hose to finish as it would barely suck up leaves. I took it back to the store and the associate was very helpful and told me that he get alot of the ones with the detachable blower back for the same reason and told be I should try one without the blower. I got the same size without the blower and it works great and I am very pleased with it. I dont believe it was defective. I believe its just a very poor designed shop vac.
