Yes, the machine is a bit clunky, it is hard to drag around, and is much smaller than most wet/dry vacs out there. With this said, it is also far better. The gallon tank maintains the water temperature better than any other vacuum I have ever used of this caliber, making it excellent when you need hot water. It also features separate reservoirs, so the clean and dirty water do not mix when using. It has a rather large container for soap or detergent of choice when cleaning floors, allowing you to do the entire living room, or any area of the home, without having to continually refill the soap canister. I wish the design was a bit different, and that it wasn't so bulky, but in terms of cleaning quality, in comparison to other wet/dry vacs, you won't find many that are as good as this machine is, and a reasonable price point also makes it an attractive option for those who are shopping for a new wet/dry vacuum for use at home, or in a commercial space.
