" good sturdy product with good capacity and great air filtration options. My only suggestion would be screws to connect wheel base to canister but it seems to be holding up without them so far. "

" I got this vac for use cleaning my coal furnace because it has an internal bag to significantly reduce dust, and it does this very well. I'm pleased with the construction, and function...I would have given this 5 stars, but the on/off switch is poorly designed, and can get stuck. Overall, a well made product. "

" I'm very happy with the performance of this vacuum. I've owned others of similar size and the 4.5hp of this model certainly delivers greater suction. The hose is also longer than other models. The only downside to this vacuum is that it arrives unassembled and takes a good half hour to get it put together. "

" If you want something that works really well for things like cleaning up your kids spill cheerios in the car than this is for you! Plenty of attachments yo get down in the crevices that you cant normally reach! We keep this vacume by our car detailing stuff and use it regularly...never had a single problem with this unit or any results other than great...well worth the money and then some! I would recommend this to pretty well anyone! Thinking of even getting another to give my dad at Christmas this year...I have seen him eye balling mine after all! "
