Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vac! I had a Rigid vac and used it for about twenty (20) years. The motor began to smoke. It did not owe me a thing! I made a mistake and bought a "Shop Vac." Supposedly a comparable model. Not even close! I went back to Home Depot and bought another Rigid! It is a beast!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality Vacuum I am very happy with this product. The suction is fantastic and with the motor on the bottom and larger wheels, it hasn't fallen over yet! Nice long cord and convenient storage for most used tools, coupled with high quality hose, this is exactly what I expected when I ordered it. I did a lot of research on design, CFM and overall quality of product prior to making my purchase. Most satisfied with what I chose.

How big is the drain?

How does this model compare to the wd 1851 as far as picking up water and sludge? I borrowed a wd 1851 and like everything about it except the drain is not a s big as the Shopvac's 2 inch drain and kept clogging up! Thanks Robert Baxter
