Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good strong vacuum Easy to assemble, although I wish there were screws to screw the wheel assembly to the tub. The suction is very strong, has worked great in the garage, leaves, dust, dirt and saw dust have been picked up easily. Gave our Bernese Mountain dog a hair cut and the vacuum sucked up all the fur with no issues at all. I did get a fairly strong burning electrical/ plastic smell the first two times I used it but the trouble shooting in the manual said this is normal. Hopefully it is normal and is not indicative of any upcoming issues, if issues arise I will certainly write another review. My biggest issue with the Vac is the cord and how it is stored. The cord is great, it’s really long alleviating the need for an extension cord in many circumstances BUT the handle that you wrap it around is too small to hold it and I find it has a tendency to slip off. Not the end of the world but a bit of a nuisance none the less. Overall it’s a good Vac and I would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all use vacuum. I bought this vacuum because I had a water leak coming from the A/C worked great. Love that I can also use it for anything from wet vacuum projects to dry. And love the ease of use. And love the lifetime warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My last RIDGID vacuum lasted for 22 years. Great product. My last RIDGID lasted for 22 years before the motor fan broke. Hoping to get that many years out of this one. The suction and blowing power is great. I didn't have to sweep the driveway as the blower had more then enough power to do the job which saved me lots of time to do other things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade to my FAV wet/dry vac! WOW! I have a couple of Ridgid Wet/Dry vacs, and this one blows them out of the water! This has a 14-gallon bucket, and does not need to be emptied after a few passes with my planer or jointer. It has the power to clean all the dust those machines put out, too! And the cleanout of the bucket is easy-peasy with the front-mounted drain valve! We all know how acwkward it can be to empty a vacuum full of water. This has that problem solved! And to top off all this goodness, it even has a auto detail kit! You can save a lot of money by vacuuming your car or truck at home before you take it to the car wash! And the attachments work well enough that even my wife is impressed how clean the inside of her car looks! Seriously, this is one top-notch setup! And, now Ridgid has a LIFETIME WARRANTY for their wet/dry vacs, too!! What's not to like about that? The only problem I have is that this new vac does not take my older filters. Not a deal breaker, though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent vacuum. No louder than a house vacuum and it really sucks and that’s a good thing. When on my miter saw no chips escape. I am so happy with this vacuum. It sure lives up to its description. I have it hooked in tandem with my Oneida mine cyclone separator and love it’s pulling power and quiet operation.

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
You need to take the filter off before you suck up water
