Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is new, so no comment on durability Replacement for an old 12 gal. Ridgit wet - dry vacuum which was working well for many years. This monster has huge sucking power. When full of water it's obviously pretty heavy, but with wheels it is fairly easy to handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shop Vac First shop vac I've bought in 18 years. Bought to replace a Shop-Vac brand 6hp model. Technology has definitely improved since then. Really like the lock on hose and attachments. Large rear wheels are awesome, no more tipping over. Crazy suction. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridged is only Vac I buy Am a licensed contractor. First Ridgid lasted 8 years on construction sites. It had a lifetime warranty and Ridgid replaced it with a new one. I won’t buy anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, nice setup Although I have just recently purchased this product iff has worked well thdd handful of times I have used it. I purchased some vacuum bags to use with it and was concerned they would cut down on the suction but, it doesn't seem to have made a difference. Where I do notice the difference though is at the exhaust. Mg other shop vac blows out a cloud of dust everytime I turn if on not this one though. I love the large wheels and handle they make moving the vacuum around so easy. My only regret is that I didn't bug if sooner. Also, signing up for the LSA was a breeze hopefully I'll never have to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable. Powerful. Reliable. I have another Rigid 14-gal. vacuum that is going on 12 years old. Still going strong with no issues. I opted to get the 6.5HP model HD1800. It's remarkably powerful with the same Ridgid dependability and reliability that I've come to know. I would not hesitate to recommend this wet/dry vac to family, friends or fellow Ridgid fans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vac I have had another major brand vac for years and when it was time for a new one I wanted to try Rigid again. I am glad I did, its quieter and has more power. I liked it so much I purchased a second one for my business.
