Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good buy Happy with product. Good power, haven't come close to clogging yet. Very nice attachments. Only complaints, such as they are, are some of the hose connection tubes can be difficult to get on fully and a bit awkward to pick up to empty into garbage can (not any real good grasping points). But overall very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product sucks, which is the reason why I bought it. Seems good so far, but I wished the accessories were compatible with Shop-Vac

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Diameter hose not big enough for my taste We already own another wet/dry vac by Rigid and love it. This one is a little smaller (the diameter of the hose is smaller) and performs just fine but wish I has bought the bigger one to align with my needs. Overall I would recommend the Rigid brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the most part The vacuum works good. My only complaint is that the exhaust port is on the same side as the hose. When you are vacuuming something the exhaust blows whatever you are trying to vacuum all over the place. Could have been designed better, maybe with an upsweep/90 on the exhaust. Other than that it works good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from overall good product My only issue with the vacuum is that it is a bit cumbersome to take off the top of the vacuum to dump the material in the base. The handle and wheels make maneuvering the unit easy, however the handle gets in the way when dumping. The unit seems to provide adequate vacuum. Time will tell if the unit remains durable which replaced my 16 year old craftsman vac.
