Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing special, does not keep with the Rigid Name Power head does not fit tightly against the drum a worthless design. The securing ears that snap against the drum are cheaply made and will probably break with normal use in a short period of time. The vac has a top handle but the instructions say you are not supposed to pick the vac up by the handle...what the heck is the handle for...Probably due to the cheep design of the ear clips. The hose is cheaply made and of a useless length. I am 6'4"...really...you couldn't provide me with at least 6 feet of hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't listen to the negative reviews!!! I like to know what I'm buying so usually I'll check reviews... It was hard because the reviews online for this were either REALLY good or REALLY BAD. For a 60$ 9 gallon vacuum; being a cleaner - this thing will certainly pay for itself easily. As for the negative reviews; idk if they got a faulty vacuum, or work for a company other than this one - but the suction is INSANE!! It's definitely a heavy duty vac. The one thing that I would recommend is buying a larger floor attachment off the bat, since the one included is a little narrow. I even use one of the Rigid vacs on my house - so great for household too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Performance ok Surprised at the loose fit of the motor unit to the dust drum. My shop vac and craftsman products fit tightly against the drum. Product picks up light debris ok. Blower performance is ok. Unit rated at 4.5 hp. One concern I have is use of wet pickup. One of the reviews indicates that wet pickup without filter in place allows water to exhaust from the blower port. Perhaps a foam sleeve.over the filter cage, with filter removed, may solve the problem. Owners manual suggests removal of filter with heavy wet pickup. I have not tried to use the vac in wet pickup yet so unable to verify if this issue is at all true. Would like to hear from other owners on their use on wet pickup. Lifetime warranty is a real plus. For the price point this is a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I purchased the rigid wet/ dry vac a few weeks ago. I was building a table and need something to clean the mess and attach to my sliding mittens saw and sander. Which happen to be rigid, with the sander it works great no dust no mess. Now the saw it gets most of the saw dust. But over all I am pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Expected Had a RIDGID Wet Vac in the past and loved it. It finally needed replacing so I didn't hesitate to buy another on. Great suction, nice roller wheels, made well for durability. A long lasting vac for the price. I use it in the garage for woodwork clean up and car cleaning and what ever else comes up. If you are looking, make sure this is one you check out.

Where can I get an adapter that fits the 1 7/8" hose? I want to attach the unit to an outlet port from a tool.

Ridgid does not sell an adapter for 1 7/8" hose. Their alternative is to buy another hose that is 2".
