Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for it's intended use. Rather bulky, but think this is largely for styling purposes. Exhaust exit is horizontal which is a mistake in my opinion. This causes anything around or behind it to be blown all over. Previous 2 vacuums I have had, had vertical exits. On this unit I installed a 90 degree PVC fitting into the exhaust so that it would exit straight up. Other than that, the unit is ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New buyer I needed to remove some water from my backyard water feature. After research, i decided upon RIDGID. I've used the wet/dry vac only twice, But: It worked great -- definitely got the job done It was extremely easy to use -- not @ all difficult. Because I've only used 2X -- can't speak to durability. I now have a way to regularly maintain my water feature. SATISFIED!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit in my van Purchased the smallest of the bunch . 100% satisfied with the little vacuum. Not taking up a bunch of space and gets the job done right . Good price as well . Plus I've heard stories of how Rigid backs there products with warranties with no problems, either repaired or replaced .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features Great vacation, easy to use and rolls good on ruff floors. Wish the vacuum came with a crevice tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This portable vacuum really sucks. All in all this model really sucks dirt and debris much better than the product I literally threw away. BUT, I should not have to go out and buy additional attachments in order to do all the jobs that a portable vacuum is designed to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job; got it because of the lifetime warranty This is small enough to carry around, yet large enough to do most jobs. The hose is average quality, it would be nice to have a brush or the crevice accessory tube included as the accessory instead of the utility nozzle that comes with it, which doesn't pick up as well. I like the RIDGID lifetime guarantee because the last Shop Vac I owned burned out in just a year or two. Time will tell about that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It doesn't suck. I have a couple of Ridgid tools- pipe wrenches and a cordless drill that I love. But the purchase of this shop vac was a total waste of my time. It would barely pick up fine dust, let alone debris of any substance, heavier than fine dust. It only came with a floor attachment, no narrow wands of any type, cheap hose. I had a ton of work to get done that day and wasting two hours to return this vac and buy one that works, was not part of my day-plan. Ridgid, your name always meant quality to me. Why would you make a lousy tool like this?
