I’ve used this vac in my garage for over 2 years now. I use it to vacuum my vehicles, clean up after wood/shop work that I do, and general debris on garage floor from regular use. No issues, no decline in performance.
I picked up this item on 10/3/2018 and was not able to use because the handle was broken. It is ridiculous.
Great Suction. Handy tools. This is our 3rd sears shop vac over the course of 40 years. This newest one has a longer electric cord which is a great asset!! Have had great service with all of Sears shop vacs! Highly recommend them.
