Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same as Craftsman This vacuum is just about a duplicate of the Craftsman vacuum that it replaces even all the tools arwe the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from does a good job both as a vac and blower. Only down side to this unit, is that it does not come with a baffle for the discharge air. This can cause the discharged air to blow debris around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noise rating was 8+. Quieter than my 25 year old craftsman that wouldn't die. 10 rating suction. Pretty good. 8 rating noise. Doesn't seem that loud compared to my 20+ year old craftsman that I loved. Blower works nice. Use it as an alternative to my gas blower for the deck and blowing out garage etc. Bought 10' hose to go with vac. Auto kit hose has less that 2" fittings. Bought the hose (not in the auto kit) so I can use larger attachments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality I have three Ridgid shop vacs, one in the garage (7 years old), this one in the shop (new) and one I take to job sites (4 years old). I love this one because of the detachable blower, makes it nice if I just need a quick blow and don't want to pull out the gas one. The quality of these vacuums are great. I reuse my filters 3-4 times by blowing them out with an air hose and as long as you keep them clean these shop vacs will last forever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the portability of this product and versatility. This product is a nice addition to the tool shed. The only issue I have is with the storage of attachments. They are not very secure. Other than that, this product does a very good job as a vacuum and a blower.
