There's a lot to love in the shop vac from Vacmaster. For one, it has a portable blower system that can actually be detached from the rest of the vacuum.
This allows woodworkers to simply blow the sawdust out of their tools or certain areas with ease. In addition, the several attachments that come with the vacuum allow you to use the vacuum in several different applications.
One issue with many shop vacs is the size of the hose. That isn't a problem with the Vacmaster. It has a thick hose that can easily suck up sawdust without being clogged easily.
The storage area is also ideal for those who are tight on space and need their vacuum to do most of their own storage-keeping.
What Reviewers Say
Many reviewers enjoy using the blower on this unit since it's extremely powerful. However, some found it difficult to remove the blower and place it back on the vacuum.
Others found that the vacuum performed quite well in the shop and the filter ensured that the dust wasn't just being pushed back into the air.
Some found that the CPM was questionable in terms of performance.
