Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value This vacuum has plenty of power to handle my cleanup needs. I like the stainless steel bucket...it just looks cleaner! The attachment package is a bit weak, not having a tapered nozzle or a brush, but all in all it’s adequate. Looks pretty nice for a shop vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, durable, relatively compact very efficient I purchased this item during a basement reno because of high frustration with another brand. Rigid was recommended by a contractor and hit the mark. Strong reliable suction, convenient attachments, very effective functioning on dry and wet purposes. Would highly recommend this brand / product for others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the vacs but have an idea to make better I love it i just wish they had smaller vac with the 6.0 peak horsepower motor. But this was the smallest and i work construction and it has no issue with vacuuming sheetrock toscrews to anything. I also hook it up to my saws and it works amazing.it definitely sucks up alot of dust. There is one feature i would like to see on the vacuums but i have also tried telling someone from ridgid and have not heard back anything. So if you would like an idea to make your vacuums better and be infront of the competition like festool vacs then contact me back. Thanks have a great day

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Vac! This vacuum works great, and is very powerful! Very nice to have it as a blower also. I have not used it as a wet vac yet, but I would think it would work as designed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works very well. Bought this for around the shop and small odd jobs, it does the job well. Have used it for a few weeks will have to see how it lasts over time but it seems to be well made.

How loud is this vac?

How loud is this vac compared to other Ridgid shop vac models? Can you provide Db measurements? Thanks
Asked by: sgamtl
I can only say, I owned a Shop Vac brand last time around. It lasted several years, but was a VERY, VERY loud shop vac. This Ridgid shop vac, is not near as loud, though more hp. I would say is acceptable. Probably only way to get a more quite clean up is the old fashioned way, a broom and dust pan!

How many amps is the start up current for this vac?

I understand the start up amps can be quite high on some vacs. I bought a Ivac automatic switch box which cant handle extreme amps on start up.
Asked by: Darrell
I can't give you an actual value. However, I have never had an problems upon start-up with the unit connected to a 15 amp service.
