We use this vac in an auto shop and got 2 years out of the last one...pretty good for $150 price point...testing the warranty right now, but still worth second purchase

This is the second Rigid Wet/Dry Vacuum I have owned.
I have been very happy with Rigid products and the Baffling on this system really helps with the constant use.
I use this for sawdust collection of my Miter saw, and just general cleanup around the garage.

I've only had the Vac a few days but it's definitely well priced and has power! I couldn't find a higher CFM (suction) rating on any other vac at any price, and somehow still relatively easy on the electric bill.
A bit on the large size for home use, I am thinking maybe a size smaller would have been adiquate. BUt you know what they always say here in the good ole US of A, "Go BIG or go home"
A+++ for the bucks

Rated 5 out of 5 by RonG72 A durable wet-dry vac that one can trust
We are in the process of constructing a large fish pond. Our material supplier recommended that we purchase a 16 gallon Rigid vacuum to clean the bottom of our pond. It worked like it should. The suction was amazing, picking up soil and sediment from the bottom.
I purchased a Rigid extension hose and the floor brush attachment which made the job much easier.
One thing; you have to stop to empty the canister every 16 gallons, but going through this process leaves one with a job well done.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rbgator Front wheels need re-design..
Front wheels have trouble turning 360 degrees. This makes it very difficult to maneuver when rolling full of water. I expected more for the price charged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thomasmoroz Works perfectly.
We are a solid surface countertop fabricator. Recently we had a very difficult installation which required the countertop to be seamed, in the customers house, in three places. When solid surface countertop material is sanded the dust produced is very fine like talcum powder. We used a filter bag on the vacumn and hooked it to our sander. It worked flawlessly. No airborne dust from exhaust. Our customer was very happy. Excellent machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gigabehgn Best wet dry vac I have owned,
I replaced my shop/vac with this Ridgid brand. I had a five gallon and when I had plumbing problems I had to keep going back and forth to throw out the water. This baby not only holds 16 gallons but has cut my work time to two trips vs. any where between 10-14 trips I was doing with the other. Making a mess and opening and closing to throw water out no longer a problem with the port on bottom of this one. I like the power and ease of use. the handle make it easy to maneuver, any one who buys this will be pleased to have it. Already saved my son's apartment, 2 days after I bought it, his neighbor was out of town and something broke in his apartment. Water started seeping into his apartment, this got the job down once the water was shut off. Great for cars also.
