Rated 3 out of 5 by Lydilove Great power, nice design- too small
I love this shopvac,,, more than any other I have ever owned. It is very powerful, not ugly and has a sleek shape for storage. My complain is that, as a woman I found the latches too difficult for me, may be they could be designed to open more fluidly, with one hand instead of two. Neither myself not my fellow female worker could open it without two hand and, more comfortably, with gloves. Also, it would be amazing if you sold it with two container sizes 4 and 8 gallons. It filled up so fast, we had to change it every 2-3 minutes, no joke.
Operationally it is the best shopvac I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bear it's a great vacuum.
I'm a part owner of a small construction company. This is by far the best wet/dry vacuum I've use. It has plenty of power and is pretty compact. Also, a big plus, you can pull it by the hose as you use it and it doesn't tip over. The wheels are good and hasn't scratched any floors. So, I highly recommend this vacuum.

This thing is powerful, but also very loud, specialy without the muffler.
I bought 2. One that I Use to clean my pellet stove and another installed in my garage because it is powerful but uses minimum space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by emmy This is a very well-built product and it would last you for a long, long time.
I love the product but I think I ordered the wrong size. I wanted a smaller version but I guess I was mistaken when I saw the picture on the web. Thus, I enjoy shopping at the store itself so you could visually inspect the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peterred typical Ridgid quality; excellent!
I have only used the vacuum a few times, but each time I am impressed with its ease of use and power to "suck things up"! Storage area is decent but leaves no room for additional accessories; speaking of which, they are quite expensive but of good quality. I would whole heartedly endorse this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by richard1458 A Rigid product pleseant surprise.
Well its too early at this point to give an accurate review but our need was for a small house so I was forced to buy the portable smaller vac,at Home Depot I noticed that the smaller the vacs got the less suction power it had but the smaller one I had to buy went up in power one step up wich was a pleasent welcome. Also; I was happy to see that Rigid offers the option to buy this universal adapter wich allows us to use our old former vac acceseries that has the smaller I.D.hoses and tubes, , I called Rigid , they said that the motor will not over heat with the use of this smaller I.D. hose with its higher suction restriction wich was a concern for me, I would have liked that this info was some where on this adapter or in the instructions,or at the Home Depot vac adapter product bin, it was not, its just common sense that the more you cover the suction/inlet the more a vac motor will heat up and Rigid does not provide this such as in a positive disclaimer. Thank you Rigid for wanting my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jrellawood really like this
have a bigger one used when remodeling and it was great, so decided we wanted a smaller one for the house. hated the sweeper we had. have only 2 bedrooms, out of 5, with carpet. this works great on the hard wood floors, better than a dust mop. no complaints on either.

This is the first Wet/Dry Vac I have purchased in years. My old one finally died. I am very happy with the power and light weight of this Rigid machine. I have only had the machine for a month, but it has performed well in all situations thus far.
