Rated 5 out of 5 by from This vacuum really sucks! I bought this to do dust collection in my workshop and have it connected through my Dust Deputy to my tools. It makes quick work of cleaning up. I like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great vacuum with a crummy hose I'm very happy with the vacuum but the hose is too short and stiff. I can't believe I will have to pay another $60 for the 20 foot hose so that there will be adequate reach. Also, the reviews on the accessory hose are a concern because there are many reports of the hose tearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This vac preformed beyond my expectations This tool has made clean up almost fun again. I do drywall so clean up for the painter goes alot faster. 1 issue is fine powder plugs fast yet it cleans easily

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable Needed a strong vacuum to hold up to constant suction. Had water to come into basement over a floating plank floor. Placed the wet floor attachment on and placed it at a 45 degree angle to baseboard and let her run. Did what I wanted. Took awhile to. Water isn't easy to remove from under a floating floor. With the LIFETIME warranty, it was the best purchase I ever made on a wet dry vac.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lifetime Warranty Lie Bought this version after submitting my "online pictures" related to my older version's "lifetime warranty" thinking they would happily replace my broken switch, but Ridgid decided after many weeks, that my older machine was "mistreated" because they saw a piece of plaster the size of a piece of corn in the area where the filter screws in, on the image. How in the world is that mistreatment when you have to turn the darn thing upside-down to take pics which entails removing the filter upside-downdown which allows any pieces of debris to fall in this "trap" so they can deny warranty claims. I'll be returning the NXT and going to Menards. Meanwhile there are YouTube videos all over the internet showing consumers exactly what causes this issue unrelated to where the expensive filter attaches. Great work Ridgid. Stop importing your motors and switches from China.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and compact Powerful and compact wet/dry vac. Easy on/off switch. However not a fan of the ribbed hose and tool connections as the old style tools don’t fit as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great suction. I have used this vac for woodworking (dust collection) for about 3 hours of running time so far. Very happy with the performance of the motor. Previously had a 6.5 hp Vacmaster professional and this Ridgid is as powerful and slightly quieter. Would have liked higher quality and larger front casters (the big rear wheels are fine). Also, they need to improve the cord wrap; preferred the Vacmaster cord wrap which had pivotable arms on the handle that would release the entire cord with the quarter turn of the arm vs. unwrapping around the Ridgid tabs which creates a small loop and more wraps = more time to put away. To me, the most important feature is the suction and smooth running motor and this excels in both.
