Best Wet Dry Shop Vac

Updated on October 26, 2014

Trying to find the best Wet/Dry Shop Vac online is not an easy task.  I once bought a shop vac online that I thought was going to fit the bill.  From all that I read, it was going to be a great little vacuum.  But when I got it in the mail, I found out that I had been taken to the cleaners.

Well that is not going to happen to you if you buy one of these WORKSHOP vacs.

I tried to make it work with the cheap little shop vac wet/dry that I bought, but that thing was a POJ.  (Piece OF Junk.)  It had no suction, and whenever I pulled on the hose, it fell over.  Not to mention, most of the dirt that went up the hose, shot right out the back exhaust. I couldn't stand that thing.   

One day, I chucked it and all it's fancy little attachments in the trash, and I didn't look back.

After that, I watched some YouTube video reviews before I bought my next Wet/Dry vacuum.  As a matter of fact, the one that made me look into Workshop vacs, is posted below.  I didn't get the one he shows in his video, but if that lower model was made so well, I figured the next model up had to be even better.  I was right.  It is.

For a few bucks more I picked up this 16 gallon 6.5 HP stainless steel wet/dry shop vac by Workshop.  It took a bit of work to put it together, but after I got this thing all put together, I thought it was beautiful.  Well, as beautiful as a shopvac can get.

Most of the work I do with this cannister vac is done out in the garage.  One of the first things I did was suck a couple of oil-thick kitty litter piles off the floor.  Normally I would have to sweep up those piles, but this shop vac sucked them up with ease.

The next job I had for it was to vac out my Jeep Wrangler.  I do not have a top on that thing and it gets full of leaves, dirt, acorns, and pecans.  Yes.  I park it under an oak and a pecan tree.  The little shop vac I had couldn't handle the job, but this silver bullet sucked it all out without getting clogged up or falling over every time I pulled on the hose.

One of the really nice things about this vac is that it has an attachment bag on the handle.  I do not have to keep running back and forth for an attachment when I need it.  It is right there.

Over the years, I have spent some serious money on vacuums.  In all, I think that I have had 4 canister wet/dry vacuums, and all of them have fallen short of expectation to some degree.  That did not happen when I got this WorkShop vac.  I spent a little more to get it, but in the long run, I think it will save me money and frustration.
