A vacuum cleaner review of the Shop-Vac EasyLift Upright says: “The Shop-Vac EasyLift Upright vacuum cleaner opens up a new market to the one time garage-only company. This machine is made to be used indoors, for dry pickup only. The design most resembles an Oreck, which is relatively uninteresting. It is made to be used on both bare floors and carpets. After using it a while, I can’t say it has the best suction I’ve ever seen, but it’s not bad either. I do like the 30 ft cord, which allows me to stretch out pretty far.
The main thing I don’t like about this vacuum cleaner is the noise level. I should have guessed it would be loud, since I know most other Shop-Vac’s are that way. Like I said before, the suction isn’t as good as some other machines I’ve used. However, since the Shop-Vac EasyLift Upright vacuum is supposed to be an Oreck competitor, I think it does compare relatively well. And, it’s a fair amount cheaper as well, at around $150. So, I think it’s worth recommending, but not raving about.”
A user’s Shop-Vac Hang Up Pro 5-Gallon Wall Mounted vacuum cleaner review says: “The Shop-Vac Hang Up Pro 5-Gallon Wall Mounted vacuum cleaner is excellent for cleaning up wood chips and dust around power tools. I mainly use it for that purpose and keep it attached to a post next to my tools, however it does a good job at cleaning up other messes around the garage as well. Since it’s a wet/dry vacuum, you don’t have to worry about the liquid spills either. The 18 ft hose that comes with the vacuum works perfectly. You can drag the thing pretty far or just attach it to the machine you’re using. The other attachments are OK, but stuff gets caught in them pretty easily.
Of course, Shop-Vacs are known to be pretty loud – and this one is no exception. It’s so loud that it drowns out my saw & other power tools. The remedy is to always wear earplugs before using the machine. Overall though, the Shop-Vac Hang Up Pro 5-Gallon Wall Mounted vacuum cleaner has done a more than satisfactory job, and I’d buy another one if this one dies (I’ve had it for 5 years now with little trouble).”
