@Dustyytoes I like to buy tools that do more than one thing, this canister vacuum fills many needs. The only down side, if there is any, it gets heavy when full of muddy-water. Carrying the vacuum up a flight of stairs, is a two person job.
Overall the thing has all the power needed to vacuum anything you will need. Best of luck with your new place, how did your garden do?
Be well, Mike :)

This is on my list of things to buy for my new place because I sometimes get water in the basement. I didn't know about the leaf blower for the gutters! Awesome! Thanks for all this good info, since I didn't know all that this machine could do.

Hey @katiem2, I really like the 6.5hp shop vac detachable blower feature. Blowing dust, dirt, grass clippings, and leaves from my driveway, garage and deck without firing up the gas blower. Saves me on what the gas and fuel mixture cost, makes a lot less noise, and best of all, no smellier 2-cycle fuel smoke smell lingering around the garage.:)

I can't imagine life without a wet dry shop vac. I can't tell you how many times mine has paid for itself. Someone spills something on the carpet, my new carpet by the way, I run for the wet vac and suck it up before it has time to penetrate. It sucks it right off the carpets surface as if magic. They are also good for cleaning the SUV, or mini van. I sometimes need to scrub up something one of the kids has stuck to the carpet and other times i really need to get in there with some soap and water. I simply use the wet vac to suck up the water. It does so very well leaving the carpet practically dry plus it doesn't get my indoor home carpet cleaner dirty. The shop vac wet vac is so powerful it works better because it gets the moisture up without getting by carpet cleaner out which tends to beat the moisture down into the carpet. Great article Mike thanks for the new tips and uses for wet dry vacs. :)K
