This was a great product for the price ! Very useful for small jobs like vacumming out a vehicle or use in the garage. Easily moves around on wheels and has powerful suction with long hose. The four attachments were very useful especially the crevice tool.

No regrets about buying this product given the reasonable price. Two issues: The one who designed the attachment for tools should be taken to task. It doesn't fit the accessories and needs to be re-designed. The other negative is that the hose segments have to be taped together. They come apart.

    Comments about SHOP-VAC Shop Vac® 6 Gallon Pro Series .Wet/Dry Vac (9650600):

    I love the size of this shop vac, not to small not to big... I use this to clean up the laundry/mud room where the pets hang out and it works great. The coaster wheels are so smooth and easy to maneuver around the linoleum floor. It has a lot of power for a smaller size vac. Also, the yellow color is great because it will be easy to find if someone moves it out of place when I use it in the garage too.

      Comments about SHOP-VAC Shop Vac® 6 Gallon Pro Series .Wet/Dry Vac (9650600):

      This is a great little vac (Shop-Vac Model 12RT300) that is easy to tote around where needed. It is powerful enough to get auto carpet mats completely clean, but is not recommended for large "industrial size" tasks. Some find the short cord a problem, but when I use a corded power tool, I almost always need an extension cord anyway, so it's not an issue. I would not recommend getting this little vac if it is going to be your only shop vac and you expect it to do all those big jobs. The Micro Cleaning Kit is fantastic for getting into those very small areas, like cleaning a desktop computer, or getting into radiator crevices.

            This is a good vac. Looked for quite sometime to find the right one for me. I use it for personal use, and wanted it to get the fine dust. That it does. The additional paper filter for dry vac is helpful. Right price for me (home owner). The power cord could have been an extra couple feet or so, which is why I give it over all 4 Stars.

            Powerful, compact and affordable. I wish the cord were longer and it had the larger hose, though I have not yet been able to clog mine. Both issues are easily remedied. I can't speak to longevity or durability, as I have not owned it very long.

              It's quiet enough, and goes together well, but the hose is just too skinny. It gets constantly clogged with stuff (leaves, etc). It's weird, because the opening on the vacuum is much larger... oh well.

                Have had it for a month and so far, very happy. It has sizable capacity but is easy to carry and ball feet easily glide on my hardwood floors; it has great suction but have yet to use it to clean water spills. I have heard can be difficult to find replacement bags which I am about to search for - hopefully the others were wrong.

                The unit is quiet and can be easily be moved around on its wheels. I think the hose is a little longer than it needs to be--shorten it a foot. Also the old style of hose attachement work great I am not sure I care much for the screw on hose. I have used the product with the paper filter but I plan on replacing it with the sponge filter because it will significantly increase the suction. I would buy the product again.

                The vac has two different types of motor filters which are good for fine ash that exists in fireplace cleaning.So far it seems to do the job.

                  Good basic Vac. Good for garage, go for a larger hose unit if you are serious about your vacuuming - pretty good overall. What I expected- really like the local pick up option.

                    This vacume has great suction for it's size. The tank is just the right size to empty without killing your back.The hose on mine screwed on so there was no problem with it coming off. I used mine to suck a tank full of mineral deposits out of my water heater (with a special attachment that I made for it.) It sucked up that wet muck with no problems and it was easy to clean afterwards.

                    I purchased this Shop-Vac in October an at the start of Jan I am needing to buy another. The fuse overheated. It is a design flaw. I use it daily, but not for long periods of time. I am very disappointed.

                    I had a Shop-Vac that was 30+ years old but still worked. Filters were unavailable, so, I decided to purchase a new one. I looked at various brands but decided to stay with Shop-Vac and am I glad I did. It does a great job picking up wood shavings, saw dust and other shop related messes. East to assemble, and with many attachments. With an adapter I can use my old 2 1/2 inch attachments. and yes, I would get another one. [...]

                        This was a great product for the price ! Very useful for small jobs like vacumming out a vehicle or use in the garage. Easily moves around on wheels and has powerful suction with long hose. The four attachments were very useful especially the crevice tool.
