Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful suction I had purchased additional attachments, crevice tool and brush. The suction is so powerful it collapses the brush fibers and the tip of the crevice tool. I had to drill holes in the attachments to allow air to flow through and lessen the suction pressure at the inlet of the attachments. That being said i'd rather have too much suction than not enough. Overall pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Powerful This vac is great when space is at a premium. It is small, yet powerful. The attachments store neatly on the built-in storage and the hose tucks into itself to store around the handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Performance and Value I was looking for an outdoor vacuum to use in my garage and vehicles. I read multiple reviews and selected the rigid 4 gallon with 5HP power combined with the auto detailing kit. The performance of this unit ant the auto kit is exceptional. The attachments are well-designed and the triple filter on the vacuum handle the debris and pet hair in my vehicles. Highly recommend this unit for other pet owners wanting to keep their vehicles and garage clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition to my Ridgid Tools I have used this a couple of times. I love the suction power. I was cleaning out my car and it sucked up all my coins (I didn't mean to). Luckily, it was easy to open up the top and retrieve them.. The only thing for me that I would change is being able to lock the unit somehow so it doesn't roll away on the incline/declines while I am cleaning the cars.. Again, luckily it has a very strong hose connection and it really isn't a big issue. Great product...would definitely buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and compact I love this vacuum. It is very easy to pull and the size is nice because when you are vacuuming your car it goes right under doors. Love that the tools are right there and easy to get to. It has a lot of power and it is quiet. The only thing I wish it came with the crevice tool, but the car attachment works well.

Did I get a dud?

I have had this unit for a very short time with light use......partly because I cant get to suck anything. I purchased to suck up water from when my washer leaked and it picked up nothing.....also when trying to suck up dry materials. it wouldn't even pick up a penny off the floor...Am I doing something wrong? When I remove the hose the suction is very strong...but when the hose is attached the suction is very poor...
Asked by: JenniferCordova
Sounds like you've got something blocking the hose. If you attach the hose and the motor changes to a higher pitched sound you've got a blocked hose.

Seeing as there is no foam filter with this unit, will it damage the vacuum to remove the filter for vacuuming up liquid?

Asked by: Timj
Absolutely! There must be a foam filter on the unit when vacuuming up liquids to prevent debris from getting in to the impeller.

replacement / different filters

it seems like all the filters you sell are for the larger vacs, are there any filters available to purchase for this vacuum if we need to replace the stock one or want a different filter? thanks

How often do I need to change the filter?

I have been cleaning out the ducs in my house and the one I got with the machine today already looks very dirty.
Asked by: bama97202
not sure, I use the bags for dry pick up only and the filter stays clean. You can feel the bag to see if getting full. For filter, suggest once a year if you use it to clean air ducts only...doesn't sound like you use it a lot. filters can last a long time and look like they are very dirty. You can take the filter off and tap it inside a garbage bag and run fingers over the filter to get some dirt, dust cobwebs off.

How do you clean the power head

and after removing the filler I noticed that a good amount of dust collects around the filler . I believe this happens when a bag is not used. In which I plan to do. I'm new to the product this will be my first time using it, being so Ied like to clean it thoroughly, for I'll be using inside my house.
Asked by: Donarp
Unless you are using it as a wet vac make sure to use a clean filter that is properly installed, (it's simple), and if need be wipe down the motor housing with a damp, not wet, cloth with the unit unplugged.
