Pros & Cons


Power capacity: The utility wet/dry vacuum cleaner is a powerful but compact portable wet/dry vacuum cleaner. This is why it is able to generate much more power when compared with the handheld vacuums. It is on par with household vacuum cleaners. Because of its 9.1-pound weight, it weighs less than some of the rival handheld vacuum cleaners.

Package: You can purchase this wet and dry vacuum with multiple attachments and a six-foot hose to let you reach almost any mess. You will also get it with fairly long ten-foot power cord.

Auto-shutoff switch: You can get the vacuum with an auto-shutoff so that it can’t overflow when it is full of liquids. There are many of these vacuum cleaners competitors that have created bigger messes as a result of spewing liquids or overflowing the vacuum’s bin.

Affordability: This utility wet/dry vacuum cleaner is one of the cheapest on the market, cheaper than many smaller and less powerful handheld vacuums.

Attachments: The vacuum is available in several attachments, such as a utility nozzle, a rolling brush for cleaning upholstery, crevice tool, and car nozzle.

Easy assembly: When you take you to take the hose out of the canister and put it on the top of the vacuum cleaner and attach the accessories you need to the end, you will not have to assemble it.

Storage: Its compact body and wrap around hose allow it to be stored in the back of your trunk or a corner of the garage.


Hose: When this wet-dry vacuum is in blow mode, the hose doesn’t always stay in place. While trying to dry out a wet car seat, using a blow dryer or leaving it in the sun is more convenient.

Suction: On tipping over, the vacuum pulls the cloth filter in toward the hose, interfering with suction. It will be necessary for you to take the top off after turning off the vacuum and put the cloth filter back in place.

The cloth filter: It gets clogged easily when compared to the pleated filters of formal shop vacuums. You can easily clean and reuse the cloth filter. For dirty jobs such as cleaning up what the baby spits, you’ll have to throw it in the washing machine or toss and replace.


You can get it in a 2.5 gallons capacity. The motor as well as the filter lies comfortably in the bucket body. This is why it only holds about 1.5 gallons than liquid. As long as it isn’t something that could clog up the motor, it can hold more than 2.5 gallons of solid debris. It is an excellent device for home improvement. What I like about this product is that it is small and portable vacuum cleaner. However, if you want something bigger, then another option would be the best car vacuum for you.
