Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 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.

I am very happy with the new vacum after unpacking and putting it together i found that it followed me so much easier around the shop with the supervac hose . it was a joy to use and much quieter than the old one .

Suction was good and cart accessory made positioning vacuum more easily done. Cons were hose stiffness and attachments lacking in securing to hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shopforeman this is a heavy duty vac
This vacuum is a long lasting heavy duty tool I have two other ridgid vacuums at work that run for hours at a time 3 to 5 times a week in very abrasive dust from our soil type and picking up piles of heavy matirial they have been working at this pace for at least two years and the suction is as good as the day they were purchased the wheels leave a little to desired in ruff floor conditions and hose durability is not the greatest but ridgid sells a better longer replacement hose to solve that if you want a long lasting vacuum ridgid is the way to go

Rated 5 out of 5 by TonyMI Excellent product plenty of suction
I use this product with both the bag and HEPA filter at the same time. Only the fine dust gets through the bag and is easily cleaned off the filter. I have five rooms we are remodeling and have gone through 6 bags already and this shop vac is still going strong. It is still early (~1 month) but this product is a great buy for the performance you get in return.
