It didn't have the waste tank filters so i got those and then struggled a little getting things sealed up. I still need new hoses into and out if the waste tank. I ditched the 1 5 inch whip and am pretty happy with it. Using the 1.5 wand that cane with it and it's howling now. I'll do some more tweaking trying other wands and such but so far I'm not seeing any difference in vac but better heat. That may be why I'm getting a little better dry times or it may be the wand too. It will take a lot of time to form a better opinion though.
