Rated 5 out of 5 by jogo628 Powerfull suction and durability
This vacuum is one of the best , that's why I already have 5 of this and used every day at the locations I clean . Every time I have a new contract I must have one of this handy. I will not buy other brand.

I received it as a gift with the car detailing accessories. Did a very nice job cleaning out my truck and wife's car. Had one of the accessories break already. It is a big vacuum so it can be a challenge to move around the multi story house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Calvin61 This product works quite well for dry vacuuming
I bought my RIGID 14 gallon Wet/dry vac because it was on sale, it came with a "free" car detailing kit, and the vacuum I had been using for almost 25 years to clean my tile floors, vents, and cars went kuput. I never owned or even used a wet/dry vac previously.
The unit is somewhat on the large size, especially for my dry vac needs. However, because the smaller sized units were not all that much cheaper (with the excellent sale price) and did not come with the car detailing kit (which I really have come to like), I can deal with it.
I have to admit, I was very pleasantly surprised by the excellent suction when I first used it to vacuum my tile floors. Actually, I thought it was even too much as the machine sucked up my area rugs and wouldn't let go. I found that using the correct tools helped alleviate that "good" problem.
The unit rolls pretty well on the castors (not always in a straight line, but rolls easy nevertheless). I find the filter easy to clean and I like the fact that I can use the unit as a fairly powerful and useful blower when cleaning out the garage. And it did a great job on the interior of my car including the mats and seats.
A big unexpected bonus was the fact that my Kirby tools (which I have a good number) fit on the car detailing hose (10 foot smaller diameter orange hose which is easier to handle than the larger black hose).
As I am one who does not like spending money and one who constantly struggles with buyers remorse, I have to admit that I did good by purchasing this product and have zero regrets.
While I have only had the vac for about 6 weeks and cannot comment on its' reliability/durability (only reason I did not give 5 stars for that area), it seems to be pretty well built. I do not see any obvious places that could break or fail due to flimsy plastic parts (it is mostly plastic but of a decent thickness).
As for only 4 starts for ease of use, I find the regular thick black hose to be somewhat cumbersome when doing ordinary vacuuming though I do understand that it would be quite useful if using it to suck up liquids.
Overall, the vac has met my needs and, if for some reason, I had to purchase another wet/dry vac, I would buy this brand again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DiamondJim Superior all around.
I got this Wet/Dry Vac on sale at Home Depot for $100 and it came with a "bonus" car care kit. This vac is powerful, quiet, and relatively light. I find the tools and hoses to be easy to use, easy to change out, and comfortable, especially the car care implements. The flex hoses and hard tubes are wider than standard and seem to prevent things from getting stuck in them, as this has not been a problem at all since I've used it. It sucks up even pretty large, heavy and dense objects like pieces of masonry, 8d nails, bolts, etc.
One caveat to this review is that I have not used it as a wet vac yet.
