golferinfr's Full Review: Shop Vac 965-10-00 (USA) Shop Vac 9270124 (United Kingdom) Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
Making a major mistake in not checking my septic system left me with a nice surprise Thursday morning to the backlash of nasty water that was on my basement floor. I checked my sub-pump and it was dead, just another added replacement I didn't need this year along with my new water heater. As I sent my guys to Walmarts for a new sub-pump I went to my shed and pulling out my Shop Vac Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum. As I went back to the house I set the Shop Vac up outside. When you go and have to suck up water you take the filter off, you have 4 horsepower pulling 175 CFM's through that hose, even though Shop Vacs have always been noisy..this model is toned down some. The Poly plastic body is a good great, could be thicker.
What comes in the box: (1) Shop-Vac 10-Gallon 4.0 HP/ 1600 watts Pro Wet/Dry Vacuum with basic air flow coming at 420 watts is very suitable for power in tough situations. With it's weight at 22 pounds (9.979 kg) empty is pretty easy and flexible to move around. It comes with an assortment of nozzles that hook up to the 8 foot by 1-1/4-inch hose (2.4m by 32mm), (1)31-1/4-Inch extension wands, (1)10-Inch wet/dry nozzle, (1) 1-1/4-inch crevice tool to get corners or those odd places, and a (1) 1 1/4-Inch gulper nozzle. The cartridge filter with retainer and a disposable filter bag are located where the hose comes into the vacuum and separates the bad from the water. I do recommend if you buy this model; purchase a grounded 3 prong wet resistant extension cord because on this model it's only 6 feet long.
This machine was hard to move with water inside of it and being on a unfinished part my basement floor where I have the sub pump located. Putting on the extension wand was a great help for reaching tight places, being able to lock tight the nozzle to the hose gave you a sense of security you won't get leaked on. I had help carrying the water out because 10 gallons of water is almost 90 pounds. There are handles on each side to carry, and there is a top handle to either carry or steer the Shop Vac to where you want. I mainly bought this Shop Vac was to vacuum out the trucks and for wood shavings and chips when we build things for landscaping jobs. With the 10 gallon tub you can vacuum for a while before emptying it. It runs on a electric 4 horse power motor with incredible suction for both wet and dry. The filter is easy to disengaged and blow out or rinse after the nastiest jobs.
Overall it comes with a 3 year warranty and if cleaned after every use I do not see you using it. On a smooth surface and using it is at its best, the three inch plastic wheels are easy to turn with and since there are 4 wheels there is no tension turning. The yellow and black colors are bold and with the 17width x 17length x 24.2 height it goes directly under my shop table. I was recommended this Shop Vac 965-10-00 Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum by a couple friends who both use it as contractors building new homes. I will also recommend this to you. Took a total of 5 hours to get the new sub pump in and me vacuuming, the biggest bill was emptying out my septic tank.
