    Quiet & powerful; the best commercial vac we have used.
    Having over a dozen saws, blowers, and edgers, it was an easy answer to order this one. Using this for over a year, and still find it a quiet workhorse. The biggest drawback is no local dealers are stocking this, nor the bags. Just need to keep ahead of our needs on the bags. We are planning on adding a second one this year. Would even buy a third with more work. The tool reservoir would be better, if deeper. Ours goes out on the jobs, and tools are easy to fall out. When you wrap the hose ... read more around the machine for transport, it flexes tight where it comes out of the canister. Thought this might cause a problem as it gets older, but always stays fully open when on. A real pleasure!

    Bought the SE122 two years ago and it is one fine shop vac!
    I have had as many as six shop vacs at one time, but when I purchased the STIHL SE 122 I had to put the others away. The vac has all the power you need to get the job done! What amazes me about STIHL, is that when they come out with new products,you never seem to come out with a "LEMON"! Well thought out vacuum and extremely durable for homeowner or professional.

    overall a great unit
    This unit functions better than I expected. Very soundly built, and quiet. Comes with a few nice attachments, the length of the cord and hose definitely improve the function of the product. Something I find particularly nice is the specific cord and hose storage space, also an area to store the attachments. Although not an inexpensive vacuum, certainly worth the extra money.

    Good power... Attachments fall apart and plastic tubes break.
    I love this vacuum and the bag inside to keep it clean. The plastic tube/hose extensions are cheap or to weak for the power of the vacuum. It cracked and I duct taped it. Then it eventually broke right off! The red felt strips on the attachment fell off. Dissapointed in the attachments and hose extensions. Happy with the actual vacuum. Now I need to look and see if I can get a replacement tube that I will have to pay way to much money for.

    Great, Powerful Vacuum
    This vacuum is great. It has plenty of power to handle anything I expect out of a vacuum. Big fan of the filter system and how easy it is to clean. Looking forward to investing in the car kit soon! I was hoping to use it for my carpets in my home, too. While it does a great job at picking things up out of the carpet, it tends to build up some static, so I will eventually invest in another carpet vac.

    Awesome!
    I finally broke down and purchased the SE 61. I have gone through two different wet/dry vacs and I have always been disappointed. I am actually shocked at how powerful this vac is. This pulls up nails, glass, saw dust, and water. If you are searching for a wet/dry vac, stop now and just buy it. It is awesome. I actually love to us it!

    A personal R2D2
    I love this vacuum so much I actually have two, one for each floor in my house. They work well and get up more dirt that vacuums I have had in the past. My only regret is the vacuum does not come with a round brush attachment, which is just a minor thing. I call them my personal R2D2's as they remind me of that space character.

    Best small wet and dry vac
    This thing is awsome. Im a big Stihl lover, but wasn't sure about how there electric products were. Glad i made this choice over bigger clumsier rigid and shop vacs. Has more power than most larger vacs of similar price and is half the weight and twice the quality. I didn't want to fight a big 2 1/2" hose to vac cars and carry around. People said small hoses wont pick up drywall chunks and other junk of larger size, but there is a place for a broom. You should always sweep up the bulk and vac ... read more the rest. Its faster and makes sense. Has a good floor sweeper with wheels that hold it off the floor slightly and provide maximum productivity. This vac is worth the price!
