Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 129 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very adequate tool After just having a bad experience with my last shop vacuum, it has been a pleasure and a relief to use a well made product. I have not had this for very long, so I do not have a good answer on its durability. However, I bought this vacuum because a friend of mind has it and his works great and he has used his for years. All said and done, this was a good investment for my shop and other needs. August 31, 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by 9 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac, the new and the old machines, only partly compatible The good point is that the previous bigger old tube and accessories , of my previous machine, still fit on the new one as well as the new smaller tube and accessories. The bad points are that the old tank do not fit on the new machine and that the new machine is higher than the old one and I can not store it at the same place. August 16, 2015

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

The 9 gallon vacs do not have a drain. The vacs that have a drain on the bottom part of the drum are 12 gallons or larger.

If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to call us at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800- 474-3443).

Regards,
RIDGID
