Rated 3 out of 5 easy to use Works great .It's light weight but the plastic feel isn't that impressive. February 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy to use. Great suction! Works great. I would recommend this vacuum. Don't know what else to say. February 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome product. very powerful and user friendly. This product has exceeded my expectations. I recently been a DIY weekend warrior and needed a shop vac. I've watched several reviews on YouTube and Ridgid had a very high score on reviews. I purchased the vac and the Ridgid orbital sander at the same time. You have to purchase an adaptor which is a few bucks no big deal. I hooked up the vac to the sander and went to work. Very little saw dust and very strong vac. I did some demo and used the vac to pick up some debris. The vac was strong and didn't skip a beat. Its a little loud so wear some plugs. Other than that I highly recommend the vac and sander. Ridgid fan! Also great warranty! February 17, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good vacuum suction and very portable The vacuum is a good size for my garage and the functions that I use it for. It is very portable and moves easily on its rollers. The suction is good for my needs. It is also handy that my local Home Depot store carries extra accessories for the vacuum in case I need them. February 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by This is my second Ridgid vac. This is my second Ridgid vac. I have one for my garage and the one I just bought for my laundry room. It replaced a Shop Vac that quit working. It has lots of pick up & I'm satisfied with it's efficiency. The two things I don't like is the hose--it's stiff and not very flexible to wrap around the vac to store it & it's loud, but for the price I guess I can't complain. February 3, 2015
