Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the better vacs of this style I have ever used This is partly a jaded review as this new Vac is a replacement of my old one. I bought the previous one based on how well I witnessed that one work when compared to my Shop-Vac brand(the Rigid was much better). The old rigid recently failed and I was able to obtain this new one as a warranty replacement. Thanks to Rigid and Home Depot for the liftetime warranty, and extra thanks for not making me ship the dead product!!! The new model works every bit as well as the old one(I just wish the main outlet port accepted the older hose).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A step above traditional wet/dry vacs! We work for a residential pool and spa company specializing in vinyl liner replacements. Each job, everyday, requires 1 to 3 hours of continuous vacuuming of any thing from rocks, to concrete, water, mud etc. We have put these vacs through the worst imaginable and we only buy Rigid. I have to say it, shopvac does not compare for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant Product I not only use the vac as a shop vacuum but as a blower to get rid of dust and chips from wood working equipment. It works better then anything I've tried when connected to the vacuum ports on my router table and radial arm saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The removable blower is a great feature and works great. This vacuum is well made and built to last. I have not had any issues with it and I am very happy with the quality and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to remove blower from main tub and turn into a leave blower. Last vacuum I had was a Rigid 2 in 1, used it for almost 20 years and nice to have the upgrade. I used that vacuum so much I wore holes through the hose, wore out three switches, impeller wore out and fell off and bearings finally wore out in motor. I used it all the time, great machine!! I hope the new last just as long. Thanks Rigid for making such great vacuums!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strong vacuum but disappointed in standard features Good power, lots of collection space, and I like the cord storage. But I'm not happy with its standard features. I paid $120 for it and I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it. It came with only one blower tool, and no adapter for my other blower tools from my old Rigid vac. Fortunately I kept my old adapter. No outlet disperser. It blows light items off shelves and raises a lot of dust while I use it. Fortunately again, I kept the disperser from my old vac. Emptying my old vac was easy; everything slid out. This one has a lip around the top so I can't empty it completely without a lot of shaking. Also, my old vac had more tool storage. It had two locations on the front casters that are not on the new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Awesome suction. Like the removable motor as I use it and ten feet of rigid pipe coupled to a turn-over to blow out my gutters.

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.
