Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shop vac I've owned This vac may be big, but it's quiet and really does a great job of picking up sheetrock dust and just about everything else. Using mine with the dust collection bags, and they don't seem to cut down on the suction. Have only used the vac on one job so far, so can't really attest to durability. Love it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Power and features Been looking for a powerful shop vac for my wood shop and this is a super powerful one. Super happy with this vacuum, and definitely would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I bought this vac! Strong, sturdy, pleasant sounding, great suction! Ony used it a few days, but I am very pleased. The only problem is that I wasn't paying careful attention putting it together and didn't line the handle up with the rear wheels. It's only off a few degrees off kilter and still works fine. If I were really fussy about details, I would be upset. This was my stupid fault, not Ridgid's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Duper Shop Vac I'm 65 and the days of me climbing ladders to clean ceiling Air Condition air returns are over. This shop vac with its very long hose and tubs allows me to stand on the ground and easily vacuum these return vents. Suction is so great, it actually pulls dirt from the AIr Filters, thus extending the life of my home A/C filters. Also the long hose allows for cleaning of Ceiling Fans . Grandpa Bill, Austin, Tx

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product with good Customer Service and Support I purchased this product from Home Depot and used it for a few years. A nut loosened internally and the motor was damaged. I contacted Rigid and after sending them a few pictures (email) I expected them to send me a new motor to fix the existing unit, however, they sent me a BRAND NEW shop vac. Rigid exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this product from this company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The durability and toughness of this vac is amazing I have had a few different shop vacs, but the ridged 16 gallon 6.5 hp vac is by far superior to the other brands I have owned. I am remodeling my home and it has done an amazing clean up job. I also use it as my dust collector for my saws. I recommend this shop vac to anyone who is looking for one.
