I purchased a wet or dry vacuum because I wanted something easy to use, versatile, and durable. This craftsman wet dry vacuum fits these characteristics, although I have never actually used it for wet clean up projects. The vacuum is fairly inexpensive compared to other vacuums - it costs a lot less and gets the same job done. Granted it does not look as pretty as other high end vacuums, it gets the job done. I am fairly happy with my purchase and it is something good to keep handy in the garage or even in the home. I suspect it would be more useful for people working with house hold home improvement projects, but even an average household could not hurt by having one of these around. As far as I know, it is durable and easy to maneuver. It has four casters so you can pull it from any direction and it will easily slide over to you. I have hardwood floors, but I think it would be easy to use on carpets as well. So far, I am happy with my purchase of this product and would recommend it to others. It's small size is fine as I do not like to leave dust in their anyways.
