Rated 3 out of 5 by from Compact unit I've only had it for a short time but so far so good. My wife likes the blower part of the unit because she can't use my has blower when doing yard work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an amazing machine. It's very powerful and easy to use. I have been wanting a shop vac for a long time and just never got around to it. When I decided to clean the basement, i knew it would be so much easier with a vac. I decided on the Ridgid Wet/Dry vac with detachable blower. The suction is amazing and the canister rolls nicely and is very lightweight so it's easy to drag around the room. It was important to me that it be easy to handle. The attachments are great. I have not used the detachable blower yet, but will take advantage of that when the leaves start coming down. I will use that particularly for blowing my deck. So much easier than broom and dustpan. This was such a smart purchase and I registered for the lifetime warranty so I am all set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A week is too soon to comment on durability. I compared the Lowes 16 gal machine to the Ridgid. There was no comparison. The Home Depot unit had better features plus the detachable blower for less money. A no brainer! I have noticed from the registration and the questions below that Ridgid is assuming that we who buy the products are in construction and professionals and not home owners. I do not like to be referred to as a DIYer. That term now has a negative meaning in our culture. We are home owners who need tools! As to experience as noted below, I have 45 years as a home owner but was never paid to use your tools! Are you getting my point!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding shopvac. This is a great product. It came out of the box 80% assembled. I only had to insert the castors into the blocks on the bottom and put the tool caddy on the top. The motor has great power and gives the shopvac great pickup ability. It's light weight and easy to manuver. All in all, a great vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent combination of features I was looking to purchase a blower for general yard/shop work, but then you need to clean-up some of that mess so I was also looking to get a new, larger capacity shop vac. My first thought was to buy separate tools but then I noticed this combination blower/vac and thought this was a great idea. My preference was for a cordless blower, but I was willing to compromise on that to reduce the need to have two tools. In short, this is an excellent combination of features. The blower works far better than I expected - surprisingly powerful, and the vac works exactly as you would expect. Previous excellent experience with Ridgid for my cordless tools makes it a go-to brand for me, and I am fully confident this blower/vac combo will work well for a long time.

Where can I find the Power Switch?

My unit got warm and the switch got HOT and part melted. I need to replace the power switch. Where can I find one?
Asked by: Carroll
Sounds like a quality workmanship issue and as long as you registered the item you shouldnt have any issue getting it repaired or replaced by Ridgid.
