Excellent Suction, Super easy to Use, & Lightweight - - AWESOME!

Comments about Craftsman Portable 2.5 Gallon 2 Peak HP Wall Mount Wet/Dry Vac:

The Craftsman Portable 2.5 Gallon 2 Peak HP Wall Mount Wet/Dry Vac is a lifesaver!! What I like best about it is that it is lightweight, totally portable, and has great suction! Everything I was looking for in a portable vac!! This vacuum weighs less than 4 pounds and has approximately a 10 foot cord. Perfect for cleaning the car, or even small jobs around the garage & yard. I can blow leaves or dust off the sidewalk with ease, vacuum spilled drinks out of the car, or even vacuum up spilled nails off the workbench. Since it is so lightweight, it is easy to maneuver and to pull it around. It is very steady, so I don't have to worry it will tip over if I pull too hard on it. Another great feature is that the extra tools are stored right on top of it. I don't have to worry about losing anything since they are right they, and easy to access. I definitely recommend this machine. If you are looking for a mid-priced Wet/Dry Vac, than I wouldn't hesitate investing in this one. You will be thrilled with how well it works, and how compact it is!

Maneuverability
Maneuvers very well. I don't worry about it tipping over.

Ease of Maintenance
Easy to empty and dump debris!!

Suction Performance
The best! Picks up everything!

Versatility
NIce that it can be turned into a blower as well as a vacuum. So many uses for the awesome little machine!!

Design
Love that the tools are stored right on top. I don't have to worry about losing them.

Durability
Seems very well made.

Comments about Craftsman Portable 2.5 Gallon 2 Peak HP Wall Mount Wet/Dry Vac:

I absolutely adore my Craftsman Portable 2.5 Gallon 2 Peak HP Wall Mount Wet/Dry Vac. If you are a homeowner a wet/dry vacuum is a must own. Lots of unpredictable things happen to homeowners. Once my sink got all backed up and I had no idea what to do with all of the water on the ground. Thankfully I had this Craftsman wet Vac and it made cleaning up my mess so easy! I also love using my Wet vac for cleaning my garage after a very heavy rain or snow storm! It really gets the water up so easily. I also love using this particular Vacuum for cleaning out my car. I have a little girl and she loves making messes in my car. I am grateful for this particular vacuum to clean all of the little messes we have!

Maneuverability
It is so easy to maneuver. Yes, it is large but it has wheels and that helps quite a bit!

Ease of Maintenance
Its so easy to use. Just add a bag for the dry messes and take the bag and sponge out for the wet messes.

Suction Performance
It has wonderful suction performance.

Versatility
Different attachments for different messes.

Design
Easy to store.

Durability
I have had mine for over six months so I would say that is pretty durable.

Comments about Craftsman Portable 2.5 Gallon 2 Peak HP Wall Mount Wet/Dry Vac:

Great vacuum. I have owned several wet/dry vacuums with less than satisfactory results. Craftsman products are definitely top notch, very satisfied with this purchase.

Maneuverability
Lightweight and portable, handle is solid for ease of carrying unit.

Ease of Maintenance
Easy to remove cover and clean out main compartment, filter is easily removed and replaceable. You have to make sure to securely snap back the cover snaps, to ensure the unit stays together.

Suction Performance
Works great, strong and durable and I have never lost suction using this vacuum. Have used both in wet and dry applications.

Versatility
I use this in the garage to clean the floor, clean big spills, leaves, trash, and have also used this to suck the toilet water out of a toilet before replacement.

Design
Great design, easy to use and simple to operate.

Durability
Built strong with solid thick plastic. Vacuum is easy to take apart and clean and reassemble. I have used mine in all types of situations and currently it is sitting outside in 30 degree weather.

Versatile Little Wet/Dry Vac

By 

from Everett, WA, USA

Comments about Craftsman Portable 2.5 Gallon 2 Peak HP Wall Mount Wet/Dry Vac:

The Craftsman Portable 2.5 Gallon Peak HP Wall Mount Wet/Dry Vac is a handy and easy to use tool. We've used ours to clean up spills inside or outside and to help remove moisture from carpets due to spills. It is light enough to easily carry with one hand. The 2.5 gallon capacity means we could clean up even bigger spills--something we haven't had to do yet, thank goodness! Usually it's just a spilled cup of water or coffee or extra moisture in the carpet after a spill. The suction power of the vacuum is good enough to get into all the crevices of our cars as well. This is our favorite vacuum to use to clean out our cars, in fact. The portable nature means that I can place the vacuum in the car while I am cleaning it instead of having to leave it on the ground outside. The attachments make getting under the front seats and under cushions in the living room as well, very easy. I also like that I can just open the canister outside to empty the water and other debris.

Ease of Maintenance
This is a tough little vacuum. We haven't had anything go wrong with ours.

Suction Performance
It isn't quite as strong as my indoor vacuum (a Kirby) but it does an excellent job on wet or damp messes that my Kirby isn't designed to handle.

Comments about Craftsman Portable 2.5 Gallon 2 Peak HP Wall Mount Wet/Dry Vac:

Although I am hardly a woman who tinkers with tools or ventures into fixing much, there are just some items that even a gal should have on hand and this is one of them .
The Craftsman portable wet/dry vacuum really is a find that every household needs !

I have a basement that occasionally has had some water issues - and this little vacuum has saved the day for me . When my washer sometimes overflows due to old plumbing and some drainage issues , I rely on this vacuum to quickly suck up the water and help dry things out .

Even though this is a pretty small , lightweight ( it weighs only about 5 lbs ) vacuum it has amazing suctioning power and quickly sucks up water spills in just minutes . It is easy to carry around because it is so light and it is a snap to empty out the water and start the process over again if you have more than a few gallons of water to suck up .It has a 2HP motor so it is a little workhorse and much more powerful that you might think.

Because it is a small vacuum , it is not heavy or unwieldy when picking it up to dump out the water which is a plus if you are not that strong or have arthritis as I do .

It is wall mountable so you can store it in the basement off the floor as I do . It has a pretty long " reach area" to take care of spills so you don't have to keep unplugging it and moving it around if you have a larger area to dry out .

This vacuum is also good for cleaning up glass ( no chance of getting cut with this ) , I have also used it for vacuuming out my car , and cleaning up a knocked -over plant that had a lot of dirt and was very messy . This vacuum handles all the jobs I need it for with ease .

I have owned this vacuum for several years now and it has been well worth the money . I always look to Craftsman first when buying anything in hardware , tools , lawnmowers , etc because they have a great guarantee and they will take care of you if something goes wrong . You can expect years of reliable use out of this small vacuum and you will be so glad you have it when you need it .
