Rated 5 out of 5 by CarDoctor Great Product
With all the snow and rain this winter, my basement started to get wet in one area and I got tired of mopping up with old towels. I found this at Home Depot and wanted the Professional model. They were out of that one so I went a model higher which as a removable blower on the top. I'll probably never use that feature as I have a back pack blower, but it might come in handy for blowing off the back deck just before company arrives. I didn't need the 16 gallons or the blower feature but the salesman sold this to me for the same price as the Pro model which they were out of, so I couldn't pass it up. All of the Rigid models appear very well made and I really like the features of the various styles of filter elements which can be placed inside.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Laraignee Low noise, powerful suction
It's a bit sad to come to realize that people who design great machine, probably never use them. Or am I wrong...
This Shop Vac is powerful, it's well built, using durable materials, it's reasonably quiet, and has great feature, like the leaf blower function, and yet, when you're on the job, being busy and trying to clean the mess around you, you want to scream...Because, who's got the time to fight with any of the attachments that refuse to be detached when you need to switch them from one to another.
Am I the only one who's experienced that problem....
Why could the engineer come up with a simple quick release design that will save time and frustration.
Yes it's a great Vacuum, but just because of these sticking hoses, brushes and all the rest of the attachments, I will never get another Rigid Shop Vac

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frankj I use the product in my garage wood shop. It does a great job and is a good value
I have a diffuser attached to the vacuum. The vacuum has a strong suction and it does a great job. Would highly recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dgage great product overall for the price
The vacuum is great, blower works well. Bought it for at home detailing in my fleet. Purchased ultimate car care kit, just wish there was an adapter from smaller diameter hose to larger accessories. Only down fall to system is no adapter from small hose to large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrCash This product works as advertised
I use this to blow off my patio and driveway. Then I hook it up to the dust separator and plane some rough cut lumber. Last I use it to clean saw dust and wood chips from the table saw and miter saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gras Great multi purpose tool
Leaf blower option doesn't take away from the power or ruggedness of this vacuum.
