Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great power and easy use. This is far better than my old shop vac. It was a great buy with auto detailing kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really powerful Lil bigger then I imagined but it will work. Super powerfully. I really wish they would have included a auto detailing caddy to put the attachment in. I’ll never never the regular hose and attachments. Let me know if u know of a detailing attachment caddy. Maybe I’ll call rigid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality and very powerful Nice size, very stable ( won't tip over ). Lots of features. Nice for the shop. A bit big for my car, but I am going to purchase the care detail kit with smaller hose. I like this vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rigid shop vacuums are the gold standard... I was given a new 6 gallon Ridgid shop vacuum as a Christmas gift around 20 years ago. It is still going strong but I wanted to dedicate a vac to some wet cleanup I have to do on a regular basis in my screen printing shop. So I slid old faithful over to that duty, and picked up a new NXT 14 gal to upgrade for regular use around my shop. The build quality on this is great from the hose to the attachments. One of the main reasons I chose the NXT version though was for the integrated hose and cord storage so that it when I was storing it, it would keep things nice and organized. I am looking forward to seeing how it stands up over time, but so far the power and capacity has been plenty. If it holds up half as well as my previous Ridgid vac has, it will be well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product This is an excellent vacuum. Very powerful and has a large capacity, yet it is compact and surprising lightweight. It is easy to maneuver with the large wheels. The large 2 1/2 diameter hose does not get clogged and pulls a very strong suction. Overall, I am very satisfied with this vacuum

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great overall, needs a narrower wand Love it so far, needed to buy a narrower wand off Amazon though to get the real suction power for smaller places. This should come with the model, there are two "feet" still available! I'm talking about the narrow wand normally found on residential vacuums.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product Used this for a messy home reno. Lots of dirt & debris from an old house. It picked up everything in its path with out clogging. Lots of power. Love the on-board tool storage, filter selection & options for air filtration. I used the fine dust bag with HEPA cartridge filter. It all worked absolutely amazing..!! Would definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shop vac I've had the vac for a couple weeks now. So far works great. I use it on vacuuming up dirt mostly in my vehicles. I am restoring a 92GMC Sierra that I'm cleaning some rust spots up on the floor. Vacuum is strong enough for me to lay the hose on the floor and suck up the dust and mall rust chunks up from a good 6" away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, seems better built than the shop vac brand. Bought this as a replacement for my shop vac brand. It seems to be better built and is definitely quieter than my older one. I did add the muffler, but even without it, it's still quieter. It didn't come with a small round dust brush but the rest of the attachments work well. My only complaint so far is the casters need to be about twice as big. The ones they use are too small and it gets hung up trying to roll over even small stuff like the cord or screws etc. Other than that, it's pretty decent. I'm happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Vacuum Sucks Now that I have your attention, let me tell you how this vacuum saved our house during a plumbing crisis. Late one evening as I was walking down our hallway I stepped into about 1 inch of water. I immediately shut off the water supply and grabbed old towels to start with the clean up. As my family looked on I grabbed the RIDGID and begin soaking up the water. Within minutes the vacuum had filled with water. I remembered I had an additional vacuum hose and after emptying the vacuum I attacked the water in a different manner. I attached another vacuum hose to the drain outlet, ran the drain hose to the shower stall and finished the water clean up in about an hour. The Ridgid performance was impressive and saved us from major water damage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has special uses! I am quite impressed with the RidGid 14 Gal. 6.0 Peak HP NXT wet/Dry Vac with auto detail attachments! I will use this product to vacuum my cars and shop area. I bought this product on-line through Home Depot. I like the fact that it is on roller wheels as well. Just what I was looking for for my vehicles and garage. Home Depot had a special price discount on-line as well. Thank You!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Great vac, very powerful. I have used it on my table saw and I was surprised that it picked up every piece of wood dust. I am going to purchase the muffler for it today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all arround vac. This vac is great. Strong, compact enough that it's not a hassle to carry in / out of a customer's house to clean up after a project. If you can find this vacuum offered with the car kit, that is the deal to get!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged and reliable This is my second one. It works just the way I expected. The first one, a 14 gallon 6.0 hp wet/dry vac, lasted years and survived regular abuse. It took care of a flooded 800 square foot room with over 2 inches of standing water in the 5th year and didn't miss a beat afterwards. The motor on my first one started to finally give out after 8 years. If this one lasts half as long it will have been well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great product, as expected. I have been a woodworker over 40 years. I also build stringed instruments. I own several Ridgid power tools and have since I became familiar with them several years ago. The largest attraction for me is the lifetime warranty and the high quality. These tools perform at a superior level and I highly recommend adding them to your shop, you won't be sorry. Larry Mills

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely buy another. I have zero complaints. I have had this tool for almost a year. It spends most of its time hooked up to my ridgid table saw. Does a good job as a clean up tool as well has plenty of attachments to reach into smaller areas or do larger cleanups as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of "Why didn't they think of this before?" features. I had a different (big name) brand which had a motor that was in the process of burning up. Rather than purchase a replacement motor at about half the price of this NXT vacuum, I decided a new vacuum would hopefully have figured out a better solution to cooling the motor without having dust particles getting in there and shortening the life. After pricing the other brand, I saw this Ridgid NXT vacuum at my local Home Depot. I liked what I saw. Old vacuum: Inadequate hose/tool storage. No clip-ins means tools and extension wands fell off easily and there was no provision to store the hose. New NXT vacuum: Has a good place to store tools plus the extension wands store on the feet of the vacuum. They also stay put. The clips on the top mean the hose stores easily and out of the way as well. Old vacuum: Hose would pull out if tugged on. Vacuum was taller and narrower so it could also tip easier. New vacuum: Positive locking Tug-A-Long feature on the hose. wands, and tools means these stay attached. The wider base means more stability, albeit at the cost of taking up a little more room in my already overcrowded shed. I gave the Ridgid NXT vacuum a good score on durability because of the lifetime warranty. I figure it must be durable or it would only have a one or two year warranty. My old vacuum had a 3 year warranty for comparison, and it is long out of warranty which is one of the reasons I purchased this one.
