Rated 4 out of 5 by from overall good product My only issue with the vacuum is that it is a bit cumbersome to take off the top of the vacuum to dump the material in the base. The handle and wheels make maneuvering the unit easy, however the handle gets in the way when dumping. The unit seems to provide adequate vacuum. Time will tell if the unit remains durable which replaced my 16 year old craftsman vac.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from capable of doing the job. I purchase this vac as a dedicated dust collector for a radial arm saw. It really does the job. It did not come with any accessories and it was on sale so it really was something that met my needs.o

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect handheld little but powerful vacuum I wanted a small handheld battery operated vacuum with some suction. The 18V wet/dry handheld meets all my needs. I am happy with it and will use it everywhere. I have been adding Ridgid tools to my arsenal and the batteries are interchangeable.
