Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big & Powerful It’s a good product that has a powerful motor and great suction .., what more can you ask for!!! It is huge though so you may want to sacrifice power for storage convenience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This vacuum is a great addition to your garage or shop. I use a bag inside the collection area for sawdust when attaching the hose to the exhaust port on various woodworking tools I have. As you may already know, without a vacuum to collect sawdust, the sawdust would be everywhere. This vacuum delivers just the suction power I need to get the job done and done right. Also, when the hose is attached to the exhaust port of the vacuum, it can be used as a blower which is very useful. I highly recommend this vacuum for you shop area, and/or garage. Additional lengths of hose, and other accessories are available through RIDGID if needed. I have talked with the representatives at RIDGID and they have been very helpful in answering questions along the lines of product knowledge. I almost forgot the RIDGID Warranty. I believe it is the very best warranty you’ll find on the market!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this Wet/Dry Vac on sale for $78 CAD and for that price you can’t go wrong. I’ve only used this a few times since purchasing it and so far it’s been great! It picks up all the debris around the shop with ease. I haven’t used it as a wet vac yet so I won’t speak that. I purchased this on sale for $78 CAD and for that price I don’t think you can go wrong. I wish it would have come with an adapter for fit my RIDGID table saw but I can always pick that up later... I only gave it a 4 start for durability since I haven’t had it that long and it’s all plastic... it feels well built and the plastic isn’t flimsy so that’s good. Time will tell in the next few years how it holds up but with the RIDGID lifetime warranty I’m not too worried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Nice large, powerful vac at a good price. Not sure about durability at this point but is seems well built.

Wondering what can I use to clean carpet with this vacuum. There's lots of accessories with different fitting sizes available that got me confused?

Asked by: Imran
If you apply any type of cleaning solution to the carpet I suggest you vacuum it up with the wide nozzle and then use a watering can sprinkling fresh water over the area to rinse and vac that up as well. We used this method to clean concrete before laying concrete sealer then tile and it worked great.
