This is just a little info for anyone who may be considering purchasing the WD1850 wet/dry vac. I purchased the vac a couple days ago and overall I am very pleased with it. I was amazed at how quiet it is......didn't even have to use the muffler that came with it. Overall, the quality is pretty good. The only criticisms I have are (1)The cord wrap retainers should have been much larger. This would not have added to the cost of the unit and would make storing the power cord faster and easier and more secure. (2)The snap-in handle system could have been more robust....hopefully it will hold up. (3)Like most shop vacs.....it is a shame the hose was not made out of a material that was more flexible. Aside from those things, I am happy with the vac and would recommend it.
