Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this Wet/Dry Vac on sale for $78 CAD and for that price you can’t go wrong. I’ve only used this a few times since purchasing it and so far it’s been great! It picks up all the debris around the shop with ease. I haven’t used it as a wet vac yet so I won’t speak that. I purchased this on sale for $78 CAD and for that price I don’t think you can go wrong. I wish it would have come with an adapter for fit my RIDGID table saw but I can always pick that up later... I only gave it a 4 start for durability since I haven’t had it that long and it’s all plastic... it feels well built and the plastic isn’t flimsy so that’s good. Time will tell in the next few years how it holds up but with the RIDGID lifetime warranty I’m not too worried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Nice large, powerful vac at a good price. Not sure about durability at this point but is seems well built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good solid wet/dry vac I can't comment on durability, as I've only had the vacuum for about 10 days to this point. Cleaned up drywall dust with ease, pulled sand/grit from mudroom entry way and destroyed dog hair. It's doing everything I expect it to do. Can't wait to get some of the car detailing accessories and deep clean my car. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Easy to assemble and use. My only concern (and this is really not a big deal) is that, when moving the device around when cleaning something, the cord gets in the way of the wheels on the device and it sometimes tips over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vacuum This was a great deal from Home Depot. It works amazing. I spent the extra money and bought the 10Ft hose and attachments. Well worth it. Strong suction, and the noise level is actually really good. I had a RIDGID 22L 3.5 hp that also worked great but was so LOUD. Would definitely recommend this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridged rises to the test again I have been a ridgid fan for quite some time now, not only because their tools are solid and take a beating, but also due to their lifetime warranty. The guys are always ribbing me because every time I buy a new ridgid tool I walk around saying, “last one of these I’ll ever have to buy!” Anyways, got a great deal on the vacuum and it sucks and blows just like it’s supposed to! And guess what..,,it’s the last vacuum cleaner I’ll ever have to buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hose is too ridgid the hose on this unit can be a lot more flexible. The motor whines a little bit more than I am use too. Still getting use to this vacuum as I had a very small Stanley vac that this has replaced.

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.
