It really depends. I have an old 12g shop-vac that I've had "a while" (I think it'll be 20 this year) When doing major home improvement projects, and attaching it to saws etc, I've REALLY wished it was bigger, and keep thinking about getting a bigger one. Then I move it around for stuff like cleaning spilled chicken feed in the shed, and wish I had a smaller one, but that's just cause i'm lazy. I've never "needed" a smaller capacity, but I have had to stop to empty the container in the middle of projects. Also, since it's a shop vac type, if you're picking up large debris, nails, wood chips, etc, you can easily just tap the filter a few times and keep rolling. The better filters, you can even rinse out, then reuse a few times.

I forgot my issue with the smaller "powerful" units like you mention, they are often VERY top heavy, and will tip over constantly if you try and pull them with the hose to move around.

I mean, your caveat is the exact reason people buy ones this large. If you have a clogged drain and water is quickly rising then you don't want to have to worry about the vac tank filling up. I have a 6 gallon and I've used it for this purpose more than once and found it not to be big enough.

Also these bigger ones have higher horsepower and thus higher sucking power.

That said - my 6 gallon is a 3hp Vacmaster and I have been fairly disappointed in the overall suction power. I expected quite a bit more out of it based on the reviews I read. I wish I'd have spent the extra money on a Shop-Vac or a Ridgid.

You do not need Prime for free shipping. Amazon has free shipping w/ no minimum purchase until Jan. 31

It would qualify for free shipping anyway, the $ amount is high enough for that.

This looks almost identical to my Craftsman xsp 16 (6.5hp too) which was around $80 on sale. We have a number of wet vacs at our work sites. You usually get what you pay for as the cheaper ones have hoses that constantly pull/fall out, or the tubes don't connect well. Cheaper units usually have really crappy floor attachments too. I really like this model as you can wrap the hoses well around the wire holders. I highly suggest getting the better Gore Tex like filters then a dust bag as well to pre filter things.

Yes, Ridgids are in general considered the best.
But I have no idea about the one in the deal posted here.

I might suggest you find this one in a B&M store and find out how you like its size.
I have a 16 Gal. Ridgid and it is just too big to handle. I should have bought a somewhat smaller one.

Same question, and could it work with vacuum bag? I was checking out the Ryobi's wireless one. I'd appreciate it if anyone with some using experience could share with usWink

This looks just like the Model 12007 Craftsman XSP 16 gal. 6.5 HP Wet/Dry Vac [sears.com] Set. I suspect they're made by the same manufacturer.
