Rated 5 out of 5 by carguy027 For my "Show Pony"...
I have always been a Ridgid Wet/Dry Vac fan, as I currently own two others. 1 smaller unit for household project clean-up, and 1 larger unit for auto detailing, garage clean-up. As of November 2015 I purchased my first "hot Rod" so to speak, a 2004 Mustang GT Convertible with 12000 original miles !!! SCORE !!! Well, I couldn't use those "OLD" Ridgid vacuums for this baby. So I decided to upgrade and give my pony it's own Vac !!! This thing is EXCEPTIONAL !! Great suction, Nice long power cord, Super quiet with the INCLUDED muffler, and a great assortment of tools included to get most common users started. I do a fair share of detailing so I purchased EVERY tool possible for my machine !! The cart is a great feature, it doesn't roll away nearly as much as the common shop vac normally does !! OVERALL: Don't waste time with similar models in this power/price range, I'll save you the time... BUY THE RIDGID !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thumperze You can.t go wrong with this vac.
Works great, easy to put together except for the two big wheels. The nuts that go onto the axle do not fit well. Should have a threaded nut to hold the wheels on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EASny Great wet/vac with one issue
Excellent suction. One of the quietest shop vacs. Variety of accessories available. The only issue is that two extension wands and any attached nozzles are held together by friction. With the excellent suction it is very easy for the extension wands or the attached nozzle to pull off. It would be better to screw together or latch in some manner. My solution is to screw short sheet metal screws through the plastic to hold the attachments together.
Durability is unknown at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buck4 I have been very happy with the product and its performance
I had my old one for many years and when it stopped working, I bought another one as the old one served me faithfully for years.
In addition, Ridgid stands behind their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PJ45 A Most Excellent Shop Vac
I have owned a 14 gallon Rigid Shop Vac for several years and can easily say it has always worked hard and is a superior machine. As good it is there is one annoying problem with the Shop Vac, it is bulky, heavy and a bit difficult to move around, or maybe it just seems to be like that because I'm getting older. It was difficult to carry when I would be moving it to the: Upstairs, basement or out to the garage. It was a little bit tough to handle and sometimes seemed like a wrestling match.
So last week I bought a new: Rigid, 16 gallon, 6.5 HP motor, Wet/Dry Shop Vac. In addition to all of these great features it is a Cart type Vacuum cleaner with large rear wheels for much easier control. This Cart feature has already made my life easier. Whoever thought up the idea of making a cart type Shop vac. should be given a raise in pay, it's a super idea. With this new Rigid Shop Vac I can transport it easily by using it's built in handle. As simple as it may sound the handle makes life so much easier. I'm a Baby Boomer up in age now and I have a few health issues so being able to grab the handle to move it along is dynamite! The muffler feature is great too.
