    Very happy with this purchase!
    After years and years of owning various well known brands { Ridgid, Craftsman etc.} I was attracted to the Karcher brand . . . Based on online reviews. The Karcher is equipped with an equipment outlet, powering on your sander, saw, router or what have you, with the vacuum. This function has worked faultlessly Tom date . . . And quite honestly I'm now spoiled by it!!!
    The Karcher is rated at 1800 watts power, and I haven't taken the time to relate that number to HP as commonly applied to vacuums for ratings, but believe me . . . The Karcher has very good pull!

    I have a very small shop. Space is at a premium, so my choices tend to be heavily researched trying to get the best performance and features possible out of the most compact design. The Karcher has exceeded my every expectation!

    In fact, the Karcher spends the majority of its time running through a well known branded "cyclone" capture system . . . With 20" of additional shop hose running to the tool/machine of the moment, and still has draw surpassing that of any vacuum I have owned previously.

    Filter access is excellent. Onboard tool storage is built into the rear of the machine, BUT in all honesty the storage is of absolutely zero concern to me personally . . . Again, my primary concern is the function per package.

    Bottom line? I will look at Karcher as a brand overall for future purchases based on my high satisfaction with this purchase.

    Great features for the price!
    This vac is well designed, not too large and has features usually only found on high-end industrial vacs and mini dust collectors. Sure it's no Bosch or Festool vac, but at 1/4 the price.... Good enough for my purposes.

    Great little vacuum so far.
    Great little vacuum for my shop. It would be great if it had a filter cover for the vacuum inlet, so when it is used as a blower it doesn't suck back in the dust in the air around where you are using it. Good power, and the attachments are useful.

    Nice vac, some problems though...
    While this is a nice vacuum, the whole teson I bought it was to power up and down with my General Instruments Excaliber scroll saw. The scroll saw does not draw enough current to trip the auto on circuit. Almost every other tool I own will. Bummer. Still will use it but not as intended...
