Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 160 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Powerful Vac at a great size I was very surprised with the vacuums performance and find its size to be wonderfully portable January 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product, excellent value. This wet/dry vac was easy to set-up and it works great. Lots of power and does a wonderful job with wet and dry clean-up. January 13, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ridgid Vacuum I bought this vacuum January 2016. I found the hose very stiff it wouldn't straighten out.I felt like I was fighting with it. I also turned on the vacuum and lifted it to where I wanted it and dust would come out between the motor and pail it was sitting on. There isn't a seal of any kind. I think it needs to be clamped down better with clamps to keep dust from escaping. It has lots of power and lots of different sizes to choose from.I think these issues need to be addressed. Dust is very bad for your health. January 10, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works as promised Does a great job of picking everything up. Have not tried wet yet but should be no problem. Am very happy with product!!! January 10, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by This product has a good warranty and is priced competitively. This is my first wet/dry vac so at this point I cannot rate the wet performance. The dry performance has been adequate for my applications. It came with a damaged filter however it is working fine with no pass through material (at least not seen). Including a crevice tool would have been nice. I cannot rate durability at this time since it has been used only a few times. January 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Right size with good power The first job I used the vac for was a clogged dryer vent. This meant going into the crawl space with the vac. The smaller vacuums would have been too small for the job and the larger sizes would not fit in the crawl space. Turned out to be the vacuum I needed. January 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value It sucks water good and was priced decent. Works just as well as a Shop-vac. January 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by this product gets the job done I bought this shop vaccu and the car cleaning kit together. The hose in the kit alone is worth the money. The vac is powerful enough to clean my vehicles with no problem. The only small gripe I have is there isn't any on board storage for everything December 28, 2015

Answer: 
It's pretty quiet compared to the suction power it has. I've used it mainly inside my garage and am satisfied with the noise level.

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
