After my 38 year old Craftsman Shop Vac died, I was excited to find Craftsman still made them. At my work we had tried several other brands of shop vacs but was not at all pleased with any of their performances. Looking forward to another good product. Thank you!!
This is a very good shop vac with a very limited lifespan. My last one only lasted 2 years as a general shop vac. The warranty sucks since the entire vacuum must be sent in, pre-paid, then they will decide whether to actually honor their own 5-year warranty. It is cheaper to just buy a new one. A good vacuum for the money, just know in advance it will not last anywhere close to 5-years.
This vacuum has power and great suction, but it is extremely cheaply made. The first time I used it and the third time I picked you up (empty), the "locking" handles broke. One riped right out of the cheap plastic handle and the other just popped out of the handle while breaking a securing nub off. I put locking in quotes because it is obvious that Craftsman has hired engineers that will utilize cheaper methods over correct ones. I would save your money and buy a product that is designed for durability over cost savings. I will keep this product because the motor really is good, but the shell design is complete garbage.
Great product and great service from Sears! It’s good to deal with a company I have for years.
My dad purchased one for me over 30 years ago and it's still going strong. Passing on the tradition to my kids. Craftsman is where it's at for quality and endurance.
Vacuum functions great. Stupid that one has to buy the brush separately.
