Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features. I'm a contractor and had a job to vacuum a basement floor and paint the cinder block walls. The place was full of dust. This machine worked with ease, very powerful and easy to move. The attachments that came with the product made the job even easier. This product was recommended to me and I highly recommend it to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High Quality The only complaint I have is due to the use I have for it. I attach it to my scroll saw. The noise of the unit is loud which is my problem as to what I use it for. Just wish there was a way to deaden the sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice features and easy to use. So far so good. Take it out of the box, do some simple assembly procedures and we're up and running. Like the storage feature for all of the attachments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I bought this vac to replace the same vac that I have been using as my central vac in my wood shop. I have 6 outlets for my saws, planers and sanders. The old one has worked for over a dozen years and finally died. Hope this one works as well as the old one did

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would like fixed wheels, otherwise great! I like my new Vac. It is relatively quiet and the blower has tremendous range. Only downfall to this particular vac is the use of four casters. It tends to go wherever it wants (which is downhill). My old vac had two fixed wheels and it would track behind me. I noticed that Home Depot has a similar "Professional" vac with the same size cannister and two fixed wheels and two casters, but it does not have the detachable blower and cost about $40 more.

Where can I find the Power Switch?

My unit got warm and the switch got HOT and part melted. I need to replace the power switch. Where can I find one?
Asked by: Carroll
Sounds like a quality workmanship issue and as long as you registered the item you shouldnt have any issue getting it repaired or replaced by Ridgid.
