WD 2 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good suction, good price. Excellent vacuum for clearing up after the workmen ! Tackles sawdust, plaster and fine dust with no issues. Had to buy this as I had ruined the filter in my bagless vacuum trying to clean up plaster dust . Although I try to be careful when using it, it still does occasionally fall over when in use, as the hose connects at the top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant, but... Bought recently on recommendation, excellent suction and power, really pleased with it. I've just hoovered my car and it picked up all the small stones with no problems at all. Indoors, I tend to carry it with one hand and hoover with the other to avoid pulling it by the hose and it falling over. Only minus point is the very short power cable, so there's a lot of plugging and unplugging. If it had a longer cable it would be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, reliable even for simple domestic use This is the second WD2 that I bought. The first was in 2016 from Homebase and I loaned it to a friend who loved it so much that he never gave it back. This is the best all rounder for the home and keeps me from buying 2 other machines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Pros Good powerful suction. Easy to empty. Would buy again. This was recommended to me by my builder so bought one 12 months ago. Found it lightweight, easy moving. Hardly use my £300 Dyson now as so heavy. Cons Yes can fall over occasionally this is partly due to the short length of plug cable which could be longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WD2 good basic wet/dry unit Good powerful versatile unit. Recommend using paper bags if hoovering up fine dust. Normal hoovering and water cleaning up is good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Falling down When you pull hover it is falling down all the time because the hose is placed to high
