Rated 4 out of 5 by from This vac was worth the money spent. The shop vac has good suction. The suction head picked up my floor mats in my pickup truck. I like the way it cleans the carpet and the mats. I have used it to clean the garage floor. I like this tool.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I chose this product, from among several other brands and styles available when I shopped for a wet vac, based on the Rigid name and the reputation for quality. I was very disappointed when I finally got it home and started using it. The top is loosely attached to the drum and vibrates when carried by the handle. The hose is entirely too stiff and is therefore difficult to use and maneuver. The two pieces of wand attach very loosely and are awkward to use, wiggling during use. The dry floor nozzle was less than efficient at picking up anything larger than dust. Unless the one I purchased was a fluke among all Rigid wet vacs, there have got to be other brands' wet vacs that are better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product has much less vacuuming abilites than its predesscors Not worth the money I will keep my old unit and get a new filter somewhere and make it work and return the one just purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It seems great, but... So far this vac seems to work great. I bought because I'm doing some construction/renovation work on my house and using the house vacuum just doesn't seem like a good idea for construction debris. The only thing I don't like, which is universal to shop vac units is the lousy, stiff hose they come with. I wish it was more rubbery and easily flexed.

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".
