16 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac with Detachable Blower

WD1680

This newly designed RIDGID® 16 gallon wet/dry vac is a multifunctional powerhouse. Its powerful motor and large drum size allow it to perform extremely well as a conventional vac. In addition, the vacuum’s power head detaches and quickly converts into a 180 peak MPH handheld blower with a locking blowing wand that outperforms most dedicated leaf blowers. The quick-release cord wrap lets you spend less time unwrapping the 20’ cord, and more time on the job. The caddy conveniently keeps your accessories and hose close at hand. It’s like two incredible tools in one.
