When I think of the Micro Shop-Vac Wet/Dry Vacuum, it’s as a unit that tries really hard in cleaning up the messes its presented with. I could almost call it the little engine that could. Of course, that would probably be insulting to the little engine that could because at least it made it up the hill. This vac just doesn’t have the will to get the job done sometimes.
Now, I don’t want you to get me wrong. I don’t think that this vac is worthless because it’s still a decent vacuum. You just have to use it on smaller messes. If you’re going to try to use it to clean up a large liquid spill or pick up nails in the garage, then this unit is going to disappoint you. However, if you keep your expectations lowered a bit and use this on lighter messes than you’ll probably concede that it has a few things going for it.
It’s lightweight, so it’s easy-to-use and to carry around. It has a 1-horsepower engine that really isn’t powerful enough for many jobs but does alright with smaller messes. It also has a somewhat small 1-gallon capacity. Which means that it fills up rather quickly.
Unfortunately, it only has a 6-foot power cord, so if you’re going to use it out in your garage or your car, then you are probably going to have to plug it into an extension cord. It also has a 4-foot hose which has a 1.25-inch diameter, a crevice tool, a gulper nozzle and a tool bag. It also comes with a foam sleeve filter and a collection filter bag.
While it did a less than stellar job in my home, it did a pretty decent job in my car. It was able to pick up the little messes I had around the car’s cabin. And I think the interior of cars is really where this unit does a decent job.
