Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use,durabule and great warranty The suggestion I have would probably save you and some customers some grief. My suggestion is put a fine mesh screen on the end of one of the extension wands so there would be no issue getting small grains of dirt into the motor when using it for water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vac! I'm a woodworker and I'm currently using this as a dust collection unit for a thickness planer. So far, it's doing the job and its capacity means I don't have to empty it as regularly as my previous unit. It's working like a charm.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This could be a great addition to my tools kit. But the enclosed extension tubes have a poor locking mechanism. And the flexible hose does not allow a secure attachment to the included squeegee. Because of these drawbacks there is a loss of vacuum pressure at all joints. And the squeegee comes off frequently. I envision me looking at another manufacturer's version (and bringing this one back). Or using duct or electrical tape to make more air-tight connections. Not real happy with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great power and suction. Bought this product for cleaning drywall dust and general construction purposes. No problems. Has great suction and all power I need or want.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a good shop vac for light to medium use. Not as powerful as my Ridgid 6.5 that I use at work, but it's more than adequate for my personal garage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! Easy to use and very functional. This product is easy to use and very versatile. I look forward to using it with more home renovation projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed Finally bought a shop vac! Read reviews and RIDGID came out near the top - and Home Depot (one of my favorite stores) carries it :-). I am using it to keep dust to a minimum as I sand the walls I just spackled. I REALLY like that I could purchase a special filter and special bag for the job. My work space is a bit confined as all the furniture is in the center of the room, covered up. The shopvac is easy to move around but I gave a 4 for ease of use because the hose is a bit stiffer than I'd like for vacuuming the walls, climbing up and down a step ladder, as I sand. But I'm sure that for other normal heavy duty use it will be perfect. Very happy with this product and highly recommend.

drianage plug size ?

what is recommended to attach a hose or pipe for drainage with my Rigid 9 gal wet/dry vac ? Or what size adaptor ?

Where can I get an adapter that fits the 1 7/8" hose? I want to attach the unit to an outlet port from a tool.

Ridgid does not sell an adapter for 1 7/8" hose. Their alternative is to buy another hose that is 2".
