    My old Shop-Vac (brand) finally gave up the ghost. The magic smoke was released and the unit came to a groaning death and tripped the 20A breaker in the shop. It had served me well over the years and I needed a replacement.

    I came across this at Walmart and took a chance on it.

    I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. 12 gallon tank, 2-1/2" hose, good power and fairly quiet. The top (motor/impeller) comes off so it can be used as a handheld blower.

    It comes with these basic attachments:

    2-1/2" hose
    2-1/2" straight sections (x2)
    2-1/2" to 1-1/4" adapter
    1-1/4" crevice tool
    1-1/4" floor attachment
    1-1/4" brush
    Pleated paper filter
    Foam filter

    Some assembly required, casters, feet etc. but for $99 it's pretty hard to beat. I'll report back if any reliability issues arise.

    Happy breathing!

    Looks good, too bad they don't have a Case. Hopefully it works as good as it looks. I'm thinking about getting a big shop vac and exhaust it out doors.

    Yes...I am thinking John Deere and Cat have to be making vacuums next.
    Now that I think of it... for certain as the vacuum cleaner giant Electrolux acquired Husqvarna.

    What a mess!

    Oh well, at least we can clean it up.

    A John Deere would be over priced :)

    Sorry Deere fans I could not resist. I was under the impression Electroulx owned Husqvarna and Johnsered
