      Purchased for the sole purpose of blowing out gutters. Keeps me off the ladder. High 1 story gutters with 2+ years of hickory tree debris all wet, rotting and deep. Used the optional gutter attachment and in about 3 hours 150 ft of gutter cleaned. Plenty of power.

              The power of this beast is more than I have experienced with any other wet-dry vac. I bought this mainly for attaching to a hand sander for sanding drywall, and this product eliminated the dust. I'm absolutely thrilled with this vacuum.

              After 3 months use in a remodel it is still working like new. Mixed use wet & dry, and have cleaned the original paper filter several time without any problem. Strong vacuum, just be sure to wear your ear plugs.

              I purchased this vac for use in my woodworking shop with a cyclone attached. This unit has enough power to run everything flawlessly. I like the hose ends because they are very flexible and i have no fear of kinking them and losing suction. For the money, I think this is one of the best vacs on the market, especially with all the extra features.
