Rated 5 out of 5 by Zulu1 This product is a winner
Love I can complain, don't have anything bad to say about it. This Ridgid is a machine. I have Birds that sheds hair and dust. My Ridgid takes anything I throw its way. It has parts for every situation. Nether if I'm using it for the car or inside the house it exceeds my expectations. I wouldn't go with any other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goatroper Great replacement for an old Shop Vac
I bought this to replace a shop vac. When I was looking at them at Home Depot, a man walked up and told me he had a Ridgid, and it was the best vacuum he'd ever bought. I bought the 10 foot hose, which is a bit expensive, but it is durable and, in my opinion worth it. I couldn't decide between the stainless steel model and the plastic, but I went with the plastic because is lighter and quite mobile with the cart handle. The suction power is great, and it's much quieter than my old shop vac. I like the rubber and metal casters on the front. My old shop vac had 4 cheap plastic casters, and I had to replace them a couple of times because they would break. You won't have to worry about that with the Ridgid. You can tell it is built well. My father in law has a Craftsman, which seems very cheaply made compared to this particular Ridgid. I like it!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MrReliability Promising - but will it beat my old Craftsman?
This unit replaces a 30 year old Sears Craftsman shop vac, so it has big shoes to fill. We have only stared to use it, but so far It is much quieter and rolls easier than the 30 year old Craftsman. It appears powerful, however we have found that the attachment tools can mark light objects (like white fabrics). Tool storage, though more integrated than the Craftsman with its tool holder accessory, it still not fully thought out. There is nowhere to place the hose AND the extensions. This should be a top priority to fix, and would make the package harder to criticize. Longevity will be the big question, as well as the effectivity of RIGID's warranty, should we need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Artist1 Excellent suction and quieter
So far this is a great vacuum. It has excellent suction compared to my old shop vac and it's also much quieter. That said, my old vacuum sounded like a thousand banshees screaming at the top of their lungs so my new vacuum is a genuine relief.
I've only had it a short while so I can't comment accurately on durability and can only guess.
