This Ridgid has great power. I replaced this with another brand , and I'm happy The Home Depot had it on sale. I'm a retired person, so I don't used it much. But it Great

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kodiak Looked at many and chose Ridgid
I looked at many different shop vacs in this price range and this was by far the best for the money, in my opinion. I use it in my woodworking shop and I am very happy with it. I replaced the filter that came with it with a disposable filter bag style filter and it works great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Farmer Design of inlet in tub causes fine dust to plug filter way to fast.
Good vac with lots of suck! Only problem is the design of the inlet in tub. It causes all fine dust to be constantly blown around inside wich plugs filter quickly. You can clean filter and then turn in vac and without sucking anything up the filter is plugged in a few min. You can hear the debris blowing around inside. Other than that it's a nice vac. Big caster wheels are a plus

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gasman1 Would recommend getting auto cleaning kit to go with the vac,longer hose easier to use.
Good produce,powerfull and with cart easy to move around, filters are a little expensive but can be cleaned and reused.

Rated 5 out of 5 by erickmau This thing sucks--in a great way!!!
I purchased this unit to replace an older Craftsman ShopVac. Wow...no comparison whatsoever! The RIDGID is WAY quieter, has way more suction power, and actually rolls around nicely without tipping over! The cord is super long and I'm able to vacuum my entire 2.5 car garage without relocating the plug! The accessory bag is a great, useable feature that really makes it convenient to store all the things that are nice to have with the vac instead of taking up precious storage space elsewhere in the garage. Another OUTSTANDING example of a quality product by RIDGID. I think the only reason I'd ever buy anything other than a RIDGID is IF they don't make a tool I need...otherwise, I'm RIDGID for life! They rock!

Rated 4 out of 5 by roar9roar Good vac, still needs refinement
I use a craftsman vac a work and it has at least 1/3 more power and is much quieter. I would have bought it but I need 2 vacs and I wanted to keep the same filters. The oher one I own is the blower/vac. I use the h ell out of them. Very reliable. The tubes do plug up on occasion but I am not sure if that is how I use it or a design flaw. I would give up mobility for a smooth internal tube.

Rated 5 out of 5 by conceptmotors Great value
I bought 2 of these based on a comparison by Popular Mechanics I found online. I had 2 Shop-Vac brand that had died and was planning on replacing with 2 more Shop-Vac brand, but for a few bucks more I got some features in the Ridgid brand that I really like. The high handle with tool caddy is very handy. It's very easy to pull around the shop with the big wheels rolls right over extension cords. I have the 2 included extension tubes in the designated storage areas - I only wish the vacuum hose would have a better place to store when not in use, like if it could connect to the tubes but the end they fit on is the end that connects to the base of the vacuum for storage. Minor thing, but overall I am impressed with the performance of the vacuum.
