Rated 5 out of 5 by Charles100 Homeowner Use
I am using this vacuum in a homeowner setting. I based the purchase after reviewing a number of user product reviews, focusing carefully on the one and two star reviews. I have used the vacuum briefly, since receiving it with no difficulties, to date. The only item, would be how it holds up for long term use, which no owner could easily determine. I selected this unit on Ridgid's long term reputation.My late father passed away some years ago and left me his Ridgid tools, which he had used for over 50 years and I am still using them. I would be pleased if this vacuum gives every one 15 or 20 years of good service, but only time will tell.

Very good vacuum. Use it in my wood shop and for vacuuming my vehicles. I believe this vacuum could suck the S off of Supermans chest. Awesome vacuum.

Why do you get a vacuum? To pick up stuff. This does it SO well.

I have ued this product for 30 days now and it performs great. The only change I would to see is the hose is so thick it is hard to hold. Maybe a handle on the hose?

Rated 4 out of 5 by alanf Product seems good with respect to features and power.
I do not place a great deal of importance on these reviews. In my case, the product just came out of the box, so one would expect it to work well. Since it is new, I cannot speak for its durability, which I will not know for a few years.
One thing to consider is increasing the size of the caster wheels. I think they are too small to easily roll over electrical cords, minor bumps in the floor, etc. This was also true for the last wet/dry vac I owned. I know that there is a practical limit to how large these wheels can be, but a small increase in diameter would help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GAJON Filter hard to remove...
I personally prefer the old style filter that is secured by a wing style fastner...The new style of filter is to hard to get off...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Longtimeridgiduser Ridgid changed the hose, not compatible with older models.
Would have given it a 5 star if it would accept my older Ridgid hose as well as the new supplied hose. Come on Rigid, make them all compatible!
The new flex hose is much more flexible, just not compatible without bulky adapters. Older hose lock was much easier to attach and remove.
This was a replacement under warranty on a 10 YEAR OLD unit. Replacement was very straightforward. Ridgid really means "Lifetime".

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ncflyer06 Dependable, versatile!
This vacuum works just as advertised. It is actually quieter than I originally thought it would be. The multiple attachments make it very versatile for almost any cleaning task. I would buy another one, but I'm betting that I won't have to.
