Good price. It's been out of stock online for a long time.

I'm hard as hell on my tools. I got this on a 'oh shit I just need to get through this catastrophe' after my basement flooded hard. (We're talking 3 inches of ingress coming through the concrete foundation, coming through at pressure via any crevice or hole it could in the masonry). Got this exact model. I didn't even expect it to last the clean up, but this thing is just an insane beast as a wet vac. Obviously 6HP is complete bullshit since even a 20amp breaker would be tripping all the time. Somewhere between 1.5(~1050 watts) and 2(1500watts) is in the ball park. I was running it continuous duty for hours at a time, and it just kept on chugging. In anger I would tug jerk on the tubing multiple times the hoses never failed, the couplings never snapped. It would happily suck up chunks of paint and waterlogged broken wooden baseboard. Not what I would expect out of a consumer (or even prosumer )tool.

If you buy this in an emergency, get the over-priced coupler (it looks like 1" NPTF to 1/2" GH-male I think, ) so you don't have to continuously empty it out. A standard 50ft garden hose doesn't develop enough pressure even at full tank to push, but I jacked it up about 2 feet on a dolly, and I got enough head pressure from gravity alone to push through to my sump. I'm sure one of those cheap $50 impeller pumps off Amazon would have enough juice to get you a few hundred feet at ground level. Don't forget to check your insurance policy. "Flood insurance" means 'pipe failure floods' not 'water table rising' flood.

I've been watching them on the overhead shelves, and they have a sticker that say "Father's Day 6/6/2019 ~ 6/12/2019" or something like it. 6/6 for sure.
