*** INTRO *** I bought this for my small auto detailing business, mainly as a vacuum to use with the micro attachments they sell separately, in order to have something portable to clean the accessory areas of the vehicle, vents, between seats, etc., without having to lug a big vacuum around. UPS dropped off the package and I thought, "This can't possibly be the vacuum in here; it's too small of a box." No, the vacuum really is that small... like another reviewer said, "about as a big as a medium sized thermos." Don't let it's size fool you though, this little guy is just as powerful, if not better, than my shop vac. Details below.
*** BUILD QUALITY *** I'm new to the "Metropolitan Vacuum" group of customers; never owned any of their products until just recently and boy am I impressed. I use their 8 HP dual motor, dual fan "Master Blaster" for drying vehicles in my shop and that thing is built like a tank. This think is build like a...
I really like this little vacuum. I ordered it months ago and I use it 2-3 times a week to clean up pet fur, it picks up the sand out of my carpeted floor areas, small and light to clean miniblinds, and I also plug it into an outside wall outlet to vacuum the car interior. The power cord just is long enough, however, I wish the hose attachments didn't slip off so easily. Maybe a screw and lock technique would be a little better. Other than that, I'm still pleased as it has performed better and so far lasting longer than some cheap brands from a local department store. I've never heard of Metro Vacuums until shopping around online and decided to try it. So far I don't regret it.
This thing could suck the spots off a leopard yet with the included attachments it can be gentle. It's the size of a medium sized thermos bottle with a handle yet after you turn it on you'd swear you were using a full sized canister vacuum. High quality, light weight, powerful, stainless steel construction, 5 year motor warranty, UL Listed and best of all... It's made in the good 'ole USA!
