3 Gallon Portable Pro Wet/Dry Vac is rated out of 5 by 203.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JamesH from Does the job well. I was prompted by the reviews to get the Rigid Pro Wet/Dry Vac for use around the wood shop. I was looking for something light and easy to carry around. I have a large Vac, but it has large hoses fitted to my large stationary woodworking machines, and requires that I reconfigure hoses and attachments and back before and after cleanup. This vac is great. plenty of power, light and easy to carry around. The only minor issue is one a couple of other reviewers mentioned, and that is that it is top heavy and tends to want to tip over if you place it on the floor for use. However, it is light enough that you can easily carry it and clean as you go. Overall, I am very pleased and recommend it highly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GCAM from portability Easy to carry and fit in small places. I purchased this model to clean the bilge on my boat. The bilge is a tight area to work in but I was able to get the vacuum down there with me and successfully suck up the dirt and water that was there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OldForester from Good power for a small unit This unit will pick up #9 shot that has been spilled. My big vac will not do this. It should come with more tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ksabo from RIDGIT 3 gallon shop vac. Excellent ! It is much quieter than my bigger 16 gallon shop vac and it cleans up the sawdust just as good. Also, you can move the 3 gallon around a lot easier. I really like this small shop vac !

Rated 5 out of 5 by canyon56 from Compact, Powerful and Convenient! I have a much larger 16 Gallon Vacuum, but it is too big for quick jobs and vacuuming my cars. This compact powerhouse is perfect for quick jobs. It is small enough to keep in my single car garage, always on hand When needed, has plenty of power and a full-size filter to keep dust inside the canister where it belongs. I highly recommend this compact powerhouse! I did purchase a Ridgid crevasse tool and brush, but the included attachment is perfect for most uses, including the carpets in my car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thadius7 from Only complaint is the power cord is too short. This has the power of the larger vacs but can carry around with you, only complaint is the power cord is a little short.

I own the Rigid WD1450 vac and love it. Was looking for a portable unit as well. Does this smaller vac have an option to use vacuum bags in addition to the filter. I prefer to use the bags in addition to the filter when picking up drywall dust. Thank you.
No, the internals of this vac are small, maybe the addition of a foam filter may help. I saw no options for a bag.
