I bought this for 32.70 (after 10 off coupon) on 11.27.14. Since that time it has sucked 40 gallons or more of water per week, for about 11 months, up from a 2+ foot depth (3+ foot if you count the fact that the canister is over a foot tall) and not missed a beat once. (I use it to clean the bottom of my 300 gallon pond). Sometimes I use a larger hose, but most of the time I use the small hose that comes with this machine, because it's not about how much water I get out, it's about how much silt and debris I get out, so the smaller hose equates to less water.

Oh, and for those in need of hard extensions for the hose ends - if you own a heat gun you can pretty easily make your own out of PVC pipe. Heat the end for a minute or two, and shove the vacuum end in. I wish I had thought of this before spending $8 each on 4, 1 foot extensions!

Is this YMMV for $39.99? I'm only getting prices of $49.00.

Edit: $34.99 after coupon. Thanks, repped.

Hose diameter is only 1 1/4, probably the smallest size I've ever seen on a machine this big.

$49.99 in my neck of the woods. Def YMMV. Thanks though!

Hose diameter is ridiculously small for any major shop cleanup. Constantly clogs. Spend the extra $30-40 and get a rigid.

I have 2 of these I bought at this price back months ago they're good vacs for medium duty jobs. It would be nice to have the larger diameter hose but this works well for what I use it for.

What coupon are you referring to to make it $34.99?

Can someone chime in on which one is better? This one or https://slickdeals.net/f/10215924-ridgid-16-gallon-5-peak-hp-wet-dry-vacuum-49-88-in-store-ymmv?v=1&src=SiteSearch

TIA!
The Home Depot Rigid vacuum is 16 gallon and 1 7/8" hose.
This Shopvac is only 12 gallon and has 1 1/4" hose. However, I like the fact that it is stronger - 11.8amp and 145 cfm (air flow). The Rigid is 9amp and 115cfm. Based on reading stuff on the internet, the airflow is the real benchmark for suction power... (not the peak HP rating you see in big letters on the side of the vacuum!) The 18' cord of the shopvac is slightly longer than the 15' cord of the Rigid. They both weight about 23Lbs.

I think it is close in features and performance. If you need to suck up big debris, then the bigger hose of the Rigid is definitely better. However, if you don't care about that, or the slightly larger liquid capacity, then the Shopvac is better.

I'm getting this deal, even though it is not cheapest ever... I really need one soon and can't wait until black friday...
