Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Product works great, the warranty part of it was confusing to figure out but customer service was also very helpful

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Good. So far, so good. Works pretty good! Good suction, but not great. For $110, to be expected. 5AH battery gets 16 min of use, not bad! Great for car & around the house for small quick vac job, when you don't want to pull out the big machine. Built with cheap plastic so do not expect it to be rugged. It's quite flimsy, so treat it like it is fragile. Put a FRAGILE sticker on it to remind yourself & kids. Comparison: Not a Pit Bull. More like a Dash Hound or Italian Greyhound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and portable Great little vac. This is my 4th one. Unfortunately it’s not very durable. Whenever they die I just buy another one. Can’t work without it. I have a 9ah battery which makes it very useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and powerful Living in an apartment, I don't have access to an outlet so I needed a cordless vacuum for the car. Turns out, I also have plans of buying the 18v Ridgid Impact Wrench for tire changes as well. It made sense then to buy this to not only have a powerful cordless vacuum but also to be able to reuse batteries between the two tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Vacuum This is a great little portable wet dry. I am going to everything cordless and this is great with my tools for convenience. Uses the same 18V battery all of my other Rigid tools use. It is a rugged wet dry vac for small tough jobs but very portable for also the small light jobs. Have only just started to use it so cannot give a long term review but so far am extremely happy with this vac and highly recommend it. Hard to find but found in at Home Depot but only online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the most powerful handheld vacuum cleaner I have ever owned. It's has more suction than some regular 120volt vacuum cleaners. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a superior product. It is somewhat expensive as compared to other handheld vacs but you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cordless Freedom It is liberating to be able to move about the house, shop, or car without having to be tethered to an electrical socket. Just grab the vac and do some clean up. There is decent suction. The set up is easy. Only downside is the lack of some clever way to store the two attachment heads. Mine was a "tool only" purchase, so there were no batteries or charger. I already have about a dozen Ridgid batteries.

Will the hose fit into the exhaust side to use as a blower as well?

Low battery ?

I just purchased this vacum . I own 4 Ridgid 18volt Lithium batteries. 3, 2.0 AmH and one 4.0 AmH . I tried the 4.0 one first and after exactly 5 minutes ( not complaining at all about run time ) it started to go on and off . I figured if it was dying it would get weak then just shut off. I then tried a 2.0 AmH battery and after a while ( I didn't time this one) it gradually got weaker lower and gradually shut off. So is this normal for the vacum ? I called Ridgid they said they didn't know if the batteries could do that and recommended I return. Thank you for any help .
Asked by: CabinetGuy1981
Sounds like the vac has a problem. Maybe the battery was loose or pop loose. Because I can run mine on a 2.0 fully charged battery for over 10 mins easy. Yes as the battery gets close to running out of power it doses slow down just a bit and then it just shuts off completely. But it doesn't turn off then back on again that sounds like a connections issue to me. Maybe a wire is loose on the inside some ware from the factory. I would just go with what Ridgid Customer Service said and return for a new one.

Is the 18v cordless vac eligible for the Lifetime Service Agreement?

I recently purchased the cordless vac, and it very clearly states LSA eligible on the box. I am familiar with registering products for the LSA, and all of my other tools, once registered, show the warranty status. However once I registered the vac, (which incidentally required a separate login), there was no mention of the LSA. Please clarify.
Asked by: Derrick
No. This vacuum is registered thru not RIGID Power Tools which has the LSA. However, warrants the vac for lifetime. I assume it is the same warranty that covers their other shop vacs. Hope this helps.
