Peter B. –
I have owned few different wet and dry vacs in the past and this is already my favorite. The general size if really nice. It is short and fat which I find much better for storing the vac and it never feels like it is topping over if you get hung up on the wires. I think the drain plug is a great feature instead of trying to pour out 16 gallons of liquid. All of the attachments, and there are plenty, store nicely on the vac. I love the feature for the detachable blower. I don’t recommend it as a dedicated leaf blower though, it just isn’t strong enough. It is great to blow the saw dust out of your workspace though. I was able to move around some leaves but only for short distances. It would take you longer than to just rake the leaves at that point but it was great for clearing of the driveway. This is a great vac!
