Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Basic Wet/Dry Vaccuum Machine I bought due to the price is under promotion. Power is good enough and bigger 16 gallon sotrage room. Hose diameter is smaller than than their normal Vac model. The hose connecter clip is weak cannot hold hte hose tightly. Also, it is less of accessories attachment. For using within my work area and for tools attachment which is good enough for the work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely no complaints, only minor recommendations This is my second Ridgid vacuum (my first is still going strong after 15 years) so now I have one for my back garage and one for the house garage. Ridgid is the best I’ve came across at home and work. I would only say that the it come with the very narrow attachment to get in small spots. But it can be purchased with an adaptor. So 99% perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A powerful vacuum at a good price I've only had it for a month or so, but it's been a good and powerful vacuum so far for us. We use it in our warehouse and it has done what we've needed without problem.

Wondering what can I use to clean carpet with this vacuum. There's lots of accessories with different fitting sizes available that got me confused?

Asked by: Imran
If you apply any type of cleaning solution to the carpet I suggest you vacuum it up with the wide nozzle and then use a watering can sprinkling fresh water over the area to rinse and vac that up as well. We used this method to clean concrete before laying concrete sealer then tile and it worked great.
