Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great suction, I use the vacuum in my workshop and attach it to my 13" ridgid planer tocollect chips and keep down dust., My old 16 gal. vac died after many years of operation. I called your customer support to purchase brushes as I though I could possibly repair. Your customer support were very helpful and although no brushes were available They stepped me through the process to apply for a warrantee claim. I believe I submitted the required information on Wednesday and the following the following Monday I received a replacement. HOW GOOD IS THAT ? Thank you so much for your care and support/ Jim

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too new to evaluate durability The vac is too new to evaluate durability. I have used it once to satisfactorily vacuum auto interior. Tool storage is handy except for the hose storage. Owner's manual isn't clear on the hose storage method.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product with room for improvement The vacuum works perfectly. However the wheels do not secure into the frame so fall off when it is lifted

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a champ. I assembled it in minutes and put it to work right away. Our house flooded and we had to jump right to clean up. Pick this one up at Home Depot at a great price. It is very durable and reliable. It sucked up water in a blink of an eye. It also was sucking up sheet rock and other debris without a problem. I highly recommend this tool for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit for any use. I stall and service swimming pools. My vacuum is used to suck the pool liners tight. So it goes through some abuse. this is the fourth I have had in eleven years. They take the abuse for about three years and then the brushes usually go or bearings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridgid 16 gal wet/dry vac w/detachable blower This machine is exactly what I have been looking for. Others I have owned have a much smaller diameter hose and weaker motor. This thing is a moose. Vacuums up quite well. If you don't want it picked up, keep the wand away or it will already have it. I like the beefy casters and the hose that won't come apart every time you tug on it. A definite plus. The tool storage is nice and compact and carries everything right on the machine. The cord wrapped around the top is also a plus. The detachable blower was an unexpected option, but also works very well. I should have bought one of these a long time ago. This product beats Shop Vac and Craftsman hands down. I really like this machine, can you tell?
