Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better features compared to my old ridgid vac. Hose is more flexible and the locking mechanism is a welcome feature. Have only used it a few times but it seems powerful enough to meet my needs. Durability, only time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ultimate Shop Vac I have owned Shop Vacs since the beginning (I'm 65). I asked for one for Christmas and showed the wife the Black Friday sales. By the time she arrived, Home Depot was sold out. The sales rep talked her into this model. THANK YOU! THANK YOU sales rep! This machine is AWESOME! From the casters being in a screw-on mount to easy lock on attachments so they don't pull off under the workbench, it is a GREAT design. Even has a muffler/diffuser so quiet it down in the house. Did I mention the 16' plug so no need for a constant extension cord? Or the fact it is easily converted to a blower to really blow out the leaves and wood chips. The non-jamming oversize suction hose so the wood splinters don't jam it constantly as my old Shop-Vac does. Fantastic, well-engineered design by someone who actually appears to use a shop vac. It even can lift the installed living room carpet from the pad when I did a test run in the house. Made my wife's Dyson Vacuum like an underpowered compact car!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shop vacuum I really like the suction power. The detached blower works great. I didn’t realize trying to vacuum my car with the hose was so limited. The gentleman that helped me was only aware of the product, so he was limited on knowledge, which left me with a less informed decision. None of the reviews mentioned this. Just know, it’s a great shop vacuum, and the blower is great for many things, including drying my car after washing it. The vac is all it was meant to be. Great vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shop Vac I've Owned Not only is it the best one I've owned, Ridgid went and put a detachable blower with it. Great suction, put of space, tons of attachments and light weight!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful suction I purchased this vac to replace my 25 yr old Shop Vac to be used in a woodworking shop. The suction is excellent and lock on hose allows you to pull the vac around by the hose, a big plus. My complaints would be the blower accessory tool does not connect to the hose (only the blower assembly). This attachment would be useful for getting into small areas. In addition, there were parts missing (screws) which appear to be a common problem based on feedback from there support line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shop vac ever bought I've been a contractor and put these things to ther test. These are the best shop vacs ever. When you think that they don't work clean them, even the foam filler inside, and bam back ti work they go. Good job on these.
