I just picked it up today at ACE. Have not even opened it. Will update later.

Just checked this morning. It is compatible with the attachments from my upright vacuum, but not the hoses. The hose that comes with the Craftsman is smaller (skinnier) than a regular vacuum hose. The attachments that can fit are able to fit over the craftsman hose, not inside.

Is it strong enough to blow bad dust away from the house without getting it back in my face? Will it work well on flooded bathroom?

Your comment cannot be blank.

20 bucks every 7 years to own a shop vac is the deal of the century
7 years is damn good for a shop vac. I am having to replace my Stinger sold at Home Depot so the timing is perfect. My stinger small shop vac is around 8-9 years.

Will just be strong enough to hook up to my Ryobi table saw to collect and suck the dust while I'm cutting?

When I look at the page on ACE, I can't seem to expand the product overview and specs to see the details.

Can this one be used as a blower too? In other words, does the hose fit on the exhaust port?

Also, how many amps does this draw? I find all the HP rating for wet/dry vacs a bunch of, uh, HS.


Edit: Nevermind. I see that it's 3amps. So it draws up to 360 Watts, so that's less than .5 HP.

2nd Edit: Here's the link to Craftsman's specs: https://www.craftsman.com/product...vac-25-gal

This is a different model than the craftsman 2.5 gallon shown on Lowes Site. I hope it uses the same paper bagged filters as my old unit.

True, the HP ratings are misleading. (They always claim it's "peak HP" so that's why the stated HP numbers on shop vacs are higher.) The amp spec you note is probably the best semi-realistic number to compare across models and brands.

If you have Ryobi tool, buy a Ryobi 18V car vac. It is more portable.
