I find myself using this more than my full size. It's actually very useful. Note this is the older version, which is actually better than the newer model carries in sears currently (no wall mount though). You don't have to buy the craftsman bag filters, you can buy the generic 3 packs on Amazon. I bought a bunch when they were $4.99 per 3 pack, not sure what it's up to now. The power cord is kind of short so I got a harbor freight 10 ft one for $5 and keep it wrapped on the handle as well. One more thing to note - do not use this if you are trying to pick up drywall sanding or concrete dust. The bag filter will not filter out the particulates and it will shoot the dust out the exhaust port all over the place

This looks suspiciously like a Stanley vacuum I picked up from Walmart awhile back. Not sure how much it cost. I'm thinking about the same.

Not surprising, since Stanley owns Craftsman. Wink

2.5 is fairly small if this is for emergencies right?

I have this size and yes it is too small for any kind of actual use. Even the hose is super short

It's 2.5 gallons... As long as you aren't trying to pump out a basement this size is great for plenty of things. It's for times you want it to be light. The same as a dustbuster is to vacuuming.

Keyword is short. Short cable length. Short hose. Plus it shoots dusts out the back. If I want to use this then I need to pull out extension etc. simply this ain't very practical

1.75 HP isn't that good IMO , specially when you want to suck water with this . I bought one from Walmart , same HP to clean my AC drain pan, and there wasn't enough suction.
Returned and bought shopVac 4.5 HP. Good investment IMO if you are a homeowner.

when sucking up water, you remove the bag filter and replace with a black foam mesh filter which reduces resistance thus allowing you to suck up water, while still protecting the motor from solidified debris

This also looks like the Homer Stinger. It's okay for light duty. I use it in my kitchen -- it replaces the dustpan and is easier to use. Gets around the base cabinets. My Stinger maybe lasted a year. $20 is worth it for me. Thanks OP.

make sure to check your closest Ace - I figured I'd check since I have one a block away from my work and they were in stock (online it said it would take 1-7 days to be in stock)
