I have to say that ever since we purchased this Craftsman Sixteen Gallon 6.5 Peak HP Detachable Blower Wet/Dry Vac my life has been a lot easier. I am very happy with this product and i believe it is one of the best appliances I have ever purchased. This product is so versatile. First of all it is so powerful it is able to get up a large amount of water at even the worse floods. So when my hot water heater busted I used this and I did not have to call for outside help. Just sucked up the water with this product and it dried the rest of the way with a fan. Not only does it do regular vacuuming you can vacuum up anything with this even broken glass. Then after doing all of these.things you can take it outside and use it as a blower and blow the leaves out of the driveway and even out of the gutters. I have found this product to be very durable and stands up to even the toughest jobs. I would certainly recommend this to anyone male or female who wants to make their life easier. It is a perfect size for easy storage.
