Filter replacement part numbers.

Wet filter number: 17292 General purpose filter: 17816 Fine particle filter: 17907 HEPA filter: 17912 I have had this shop vac since 2013. It has no issues besides I would like a little more weight at the base when empty. Rolls easy and has not given me any issues.

Vacuum good, but you cannot replace filters. It is a current model, no filters available. DON'T BUY THIS ITEM.

Heavy duty vac


Works real good does not tip over when vacuuming moves along with you. This vacuum works just fine for a around the house basement and garage vacuum.

Almost Perfect


The finish is nice and the attachment selection is good, my only gripe is that the U shaped pieces of metal that attach onto the top of the canister are somewhat finicky to get them locked in place. Not very loud and gets the job done without taking up too much space, either.
