Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built wet vac You can tell during assembly that this product is well built. The extra features like the hose locks are an indication that the designer was looking to make a product that would last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from now a life long fan. this was a gift my older one" another brand" died. Very happy when I opened the box, all parts were there. Very easy assembly, easy directions, nothing lost in translation. I really like the parts bag that straps to the handle . picks up anything I throw at it. Wet, dry, dust.... Great job

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made shop vac I’ve only used this vac a couple of times, but it works excellent so far. It has plenty of suction and with the muffler, it is pretty quiet. I like Ridgid products because of their guarantee and they back their guarantee.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Didn’t include a cap nut, they were rude as heck about sending one, treated me like a liar/criminal. Still haven’t received the cap nut. Also missing multiple screws. When I wheel it around parts fall off, THEY FALL OFF. Never again!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of suction and attachments. The vac ha great suction. I have used it in both wet and dry applications and it works great for both. I also like the drain, with a vac this big it make it much easier to empty out the water. I would recommend this vac.
