Subject:
Shop vac replacement - recommendations?

Martin
My Sears shop vac is tired and at 25 years plus that is understandable. I am looking for
a replacement. My use is less than 10% dust and chip collection and 90% sucking up all
sorts of debris and trash. Festool and Fein are a bit too high end for my use. Rigid has the most
models and of course the most confusion.

My main complaint with my Sears is the less than robust wheels that have bent early
in the life. So it is either dragged or picked up. The bigger wheels on some Rigids would solve
this problem.

Anyone have any 5 or less years old that you like or have annoying problems. Any bad experiences
with warranty claims? Wish you would have bought model xxx instead of yyy or brand ABC?
