Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made a difference versus the old vac Has a lot more power than the old one. I now have less sawdust from the table saw and plainer. Shop clean up is faster now. Too early to tell on the durability question as it's only been in use for about a month.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a great product Nice power, has a filter system that handles drywall dust very well. Tools and hose can be stored on the unit. I would recommend a longer hose to come with the purchase. Found ours too short when using near ceilings and tops of cabinets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new caddy is excellent for holding both the extra nozzle, as well as the hose. However, the push on wheel socket allows the wheel fall off! Overall, the new 14gal unit is a workhorse like all Rigid tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Purchased a 14 Gal. 6.0-Peak HP NXT Wet Dry Vac to replace my 20 year old wet dry vac. Assembly was easy and the vacuum worked perfectly. My only concern is that the box did not contain a bag. I didn't see a bag itemized on the box so I purchased a 2 pack while I was at Home Depot I would recommend the product = excellent design and a real performer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like the car cleaning attachments. I had bought Shop Vac brand for years. I really like the Ridgid more. It is great they offer the lifetime warranty as well. It looks like I will be a Ridgid customer for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful and convenient to use Very good product ,I upgraded from an over 20 year old Craftsman vac. The benefit of being able to tidily stow all the tools, hose and power cable on the vacuum is a big benefit. The carry handle and light weight make it very convenient to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vacuum. Replaced my 30 year old one. Bought this to replace my 30 year old Rigid shop vac. All the tools were worn out or lost. But the vacuum still works. My wife gets the old one to clean the chicken coop.

Is there a cap or some device to place into the blower port to prevent particles from blowing out? I used the vac vacuuming water from the floor and water was blowing out the blower port.
Asked by: Flooringvac
I don't believe there's a cap for it nor would I recommend capping the blower off. However if there's water coming out I would empty out your container more frequently and ensure that the Sponge Filter is attached and if you still have the issue, there are mufflers which help bring down the noise which might help with the water that comes out.
